Sant'Ambrogio Market Food Tour with Tastings
Seasonal fruit, vegetables, artisanal cured meats, cheese and much more: indulge in some of the most iconic street food and taste the genuine flavour of Florence.

Meet our Food Ambassador and discover the vibrant Sant’Ambrogio neighborhood and its market, a place where locals go shopping every day and where you’ll find the most tasty and genuine products.
Start with a glass of white wine paired with a bruschetta and enjoy the view of one of the most iconic churches of the city: Santa Croce.

Visit a local bakery and the Sant’Ambrogio Market, where great food tastings await you: schiacciata with cecina (a sort of chickpeas pie), local cold cuts and cheese, lampredotto (the iconic street food of Florence) and crostini and much more.
Then try some fried specialties such as coccoli with stracchino (fresh cheese) and mozzarella in carrozza paired with a fresh glass of wine or a spritz.

Great end for a great tour: a delicious gelato.

This tour goes beyond pasta or pizza; it’s an authentic dive into the real Florentine street food that comes from the region and that you’ll seldom find elsewhere in Italy.

I had the food tour at the beginning of my trip with my friends. Our food ambassador was amazing, he was very knowledgable and he tells us a lot of stories about Italian culinary traditions! Highly recommend!
We loved all the dishes proposed and the location is just perfect! Would definitely recommend this tour.

It was a very nice surprise, finally a guided tour that I will remember for very long time! I did appreciate the knowledge of our guide Mateo and his passion for the city of Florence and for the places he showed us. I have definitely gone way out of my comfort zone, I have tried food that I would have never ordered by myself and I am glad I did it! What to say I really enjoyed it and I will do it again in the next place I visit.
l like eating as well as cooking so I'm quite picky about food. I have to say that everything I tasted during this food tour was well worth it. Instead of spending the same money for a restaurant lunch/dinner you have the chance to walk the city with a local tour guide and hang out with other food lovers. Loved it and I think I would repeat the experience in the other cities.
