Taste your way through the city of Florence as you learn all about Tuscan cuisine! Meet local bakers, chefs and food enthusiasts along the way as your local foodie guide leads you on a delectable stroll through one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
Begin your food experience tasting the lampredotto, or tripe, sandwich, the best example of the city's working-class street food. Although the popular sandwich started out as the only thing poor people could afford, the tradition is still alive and well in modern Florence. Alongside the lampredotto, sample some pappa al pomodoro, followed by a selection of local cured meats and the first of many delicious glasses of wine.
Continue your experience at a wine bar, where you'll taste two different types of fine Tuscan wine. Plus, taste some truffle and crostini in the heart of Florence. Right around the corner, you'll find a family-run bakery where you get to sample cantucci, the biscuits of Prato. After tasting both the almond and chocolate cantucci, bring home a bag for later.
Lastly, sit down in a historical tavern filled with Renaissance culture and curiosities, to enjoy an outstanding evening meal starting with pasta. Next, witness a cooking demonstration of the famous bistecca alla Fiorentina, or Florentine steak, famous around the world for this delightfully savory and rare meat.
