We had the good fortune to have a tour guide who was knowledgeable and passionate about Florence. Martina was everything we expected and more. Fully of energy and to the point, Martina gave us an appreciation for Florence that the history books could not. This tour company should be first on your list when planning a trip to Florence! - Rick S., New Jersey

After the rendezvous with our local guide, your food journey will start by visiting a traditional vineria to savour a genuine Italian “aperitivo”. While feasting on a selection of seasonal specialties, cheeses and olive oils, you will learn everything about the history of these typical Italian appetisers.

Enjoy a taste of several wines, produced in Tuscany by experienced wine makers, as our guide will teach you how to recognise their colours and perfumes. You’ll also have the chance to learn the principles of viticulture and wine making, as well as the key features of the different areas in which each wine is produced.

While proceeding to our next food stop, the guide will tell you everything you wish to know about the main squares of Florence and their history, as most of them were originally open air markets where Florentines used to buy their food. You’ll learn more about local ingredients and dishes, but do not expect too many details on recipes, as most Italians keep them as a family secret! In the meantime, you’ll taste a variety of traditional Italian dishes including a typical Tuscan soup. In a stunning location, of course!

For the sweetest possible finale, our tour ends with an exquisite gelato in one of Florence’s most important homemade ice cream shops. To your great surprise, you’ll get to know how even this typical food has ancient history to tell. In fact, this frozen dessert was discovered by ancient Romans, who used to carry snow and ice from the mountains, and conserved it deep underground in very distant towns!
