Activity Overview
Enjoy a private guided tour combined with authentic local food tastings through one of Florence's most enchanting areas.  The private afternoon food tour is the perfect option for families, couples and corporate teams that are looking for a unique food experience. Our Private Tour really fill you up with freshly made, delicious food and drink, in abundance!

Meet up with your personal guide and start visiting the elegant fashion district of Florence, where you will experience a heavenly mouthwatering truffle sandwich: you won’t find anything like that in the world!

Your Private Food Tour continues with a visit to a local wine shop where you will taste olive oils and two different wines, where the on-site Sommelier will explain the differences between colors, perfumes and areas where wines are produced.

No food visit to Florence would be complete without an authentic “piatto di pasta”, local “crostini” accompanied by a glass of wine, an Italian pastry and coffee, which is made with a blend of carefully selected coffee beans, roasted in the Italian old-style. 

Your Food experience will end while tasting a yummy gelato in one of the best “homemade” ice cream shops in the city. 

Despite Florence is quite flat, we suggest you wearing comfortable walking shoes and in case of rain we suggest you bringing an umbrella, since we will be outside for most of the tour.

If you have special requests we will do all the necesary to accommodate your group to the best of our ability.

Our Private Food Tour lets you unwind while discovering the wonderful flavors of Florence, and you won`t eat anymore for the whole day!
