Upon meeting your local guide, you’ll take a stroll through the city, chatting about national and local aperitivo traditions. Your first stop will be a typical wine bar that serves tripe, the most well-known street food in Florence. If you are game you can have a taste in the form of a small petite panino. A tasting of pecorino from southern Tuscany, Tuscan prosciutto, and local foccacia bread called schiacciata will be served next, street food-style, alongside your first glass of traditional Chianti.  Up next, you’ll take a stroll along one of the city’s most beautiful streets and indulge in a spot of window shopping as you gaze at sumptuous displays of Italian fashion. You’ll arrive at a historic wine bar that’s owned by a family who have been making wine for thirty generations. Here, you’ll taste a full-bodied super Tuscan red and soak up the old world atmosphere. We’ll then take you to the secret palace drive-through that used to sell wine in a similar fashion to the way burger chains sell their wares now.  The last but certainly not least stop is at a local cocktail bar where you will meet professional Florentine mixologists who really know their stuff when it comes to mixing a killer blend. Choose from a selection of classic Italian cocktails, and your guide (who is an expert on all things wine and gin) will fill you in on local stories related to the bar’s vast cocktail selection. More local snacks will be served, paired perfectly with your choice of drink, of course.  After a fun-filled crash course in Italian aperitivo, hopefully you will feel ready to try it on your own. Your tour will end with a stroll back to the meeting point but before you head off, don’t forget to ask your local guide for more tips on what else to see, do, and eat during your time in Florence.
