The Food Tour of Florence is a dive into the rich heritage of Florentine food. It starts with a wine tasting in one of the most popular wine shop of Santa Croce neighborhood. Your Food Ambassador – a local guide and food lover – tells you about the varieties of Tuscan wine and the story behind the producer of the wine you are sipping, before moving toward Sant’Ambrogio district.
This area is very loved by the locals because it is away from big crowds yet in the city center, considered to be the culinary and cultural heart of Florence because of its restaurants, markets, shops and theaters. In a local bakery you can sample some Tuscan bread known as Pane sciocco, which literally means silly bread.
During the tour you have the chance to savor local cold cuts and cheeses, crostini and the famous lampredotto, that can be found only in Florence!
To make your experience remarkable, the main course is served in a family-run restaurant where you can feel the Italian hospitality and taste two samples of home made pasta paired with some great wine.
And what best to end our food tour than to enjoy an artisanal gelato in the simplest yet most renowned gelateria of Florence, that has been around for almost 90 years?
