Florence isn't just the capital city of Tuscany or the birthplace of the Renaissance and a world-class culinary destination. Join a deep dive into the food culture of Florence and taste some of the iconic dishes of the city. Travel at your own pace with just your group and a fun, knowledgeable private guide.

From mouthwatering truffle sandwiches to artisan breads, traditional cheeses, salami, wine and a variety of seasonal specialties, your Florence food tour is designed to paint a full picture of Florence's vibrant culinary landscape. Your tour begins in one of Florence's charming bars where we'll kick start our day with fine Italian coffee tasting experience.

From there, you'll stop at Mercato Centrale (also known as San Lorenzo Market), Florence's oldest market, where your guide will help you select and taste a variety of local dishes. Then, visit an authentic wine shop where we'll taste a Tuscan wine with local sommeliers. Your tour will conclude with some authentic Florentine gelato!
