Activity Overview
The capital city of Tuscany and birthplace of the Renaissance, Florence is a terracotta tiled architectural marvel of a city. However, with the city also being something of a gastronomic and delicatessen sensation, Florence food tours are a must for any serious food lover.

Join us as we take in the inspiring sights of Florence as part of our guided sightseeing and authentic local food tasting tour. Our Florence food walking tour always starts in one of Florence’s charming local bars where we kick start the day with an authentic Italian Coffee tasting experience.

Committed to small group sizes, we then adventure out into Florence’s main fashion district and start sampling the city morsel by morsel. From mouthwatering truffle sandwiches to artisan breads, cheeses, salami, wine, and a variety of seasonal specialties, our Florence food tours are designed to dazzle the senses and introduce non-residents to the cities unique flavors and aromas.

Stopping to sample the San Lorenzo Market, Florence’s oldest, our guides help you select and taste as wide as possible a variety of local dishes including local Tuscan savory masterpieces.

Visiting authentic wine shops, local sommeliers will explain the secret behind local wine colors, perfumes and the local art of basic viticulture and wine making itself.

As part of our Florence food walking tour grand finale, we will later finish with a desert of authentic Florentine gelato. A sweet sensation dating back to Roman times when snow would be brought down from local mountains, local legend has it that Florence itself first gave rise to modern ice cream.

If you are visiting Florence, our local food tours are the perfect way to absorb yourself in the history and culture of this spectacular city. In this case, make sure not to miss out and book today!  

Our Food Tour is enjoined by vegetarians and children too. Children 4-10 years old can receive 50% off.
