Description

Yearning for a genuine taste of authentic Florence? Explore the Cradle of the Renaissance using your senses and join the locals in their haunts for a bite of the best!

Our small-group gastronomic experience allows you to discover Tuscany’s colorful culinary heritage and tempting gourmand specialties firsthand, with a wondrous "Food Quest" through the charming streets of the city center. Enjoy a unique insider’s view of Florence’s thriving heart, a “sniff” of its appetizing scents and delicious morsels of local delicacies roaming the town led by a specialized gourmet guide.

As a first introduction to local products stroll through one of Florence's fascinating markets, a buzzing haven of tantalizing products. Browse through the colorful stalls piled high with fresh produce, see the local cooks and housewives bargain for the best, get to know butchers’ and cheese vendors’ premium typical products. Follow your guide down winding cobblestone streets for a tasting of piping hot espresso in a choice historical café and set off to discover the local temples of flavor: the best fornai (bakeries) and picturesque traditional bottegas (local delis). Explore the shops and lose yourself among aromas and sensational flavors. Savor, fragrant savory schiacciata shiny with olive oil (Florentine schoolboys’ favorite snack!), taste mouth-watering traditional cured meats, luscious locally produced cheeses, truffle-based sauces… and premium wines, of course!

End your day as a Tuscan gourmet relishing Florence’s creamiest and most luscious gelato.

Kindly note that as Florence’s grocery markets are open only on weekday mornings. Thus, afternoon tours and tours held on Sundays and public holidays will be scheduled to include more tastings tops at local delis.
