Description

You’ll start at a tiny corner bar on a quiet street in the Oltrarno neighborhood. It’s here where you’ll get a crash course in Tuscan cuisine in the form of regional cheese, bruschette, focaccia, and Chianti Classico wine. From there, you’ll make a quick stop at one of Florence’s famous wine windows to sip a glass of red or white. After this little warm up, you'll stop at another locally loved wine bar for an aperitivo of Tuscan cold cuts washed down with another regional wine. Now you're ready for dinner. Sit down at a trattoria to try the legendary bistecca alla fiorentina, or Florentine steak. One bite and you’ll immediately understand the city’s famous love for meat. Finally, since you're in the birthplace of gelato, it would be practically criminal not to try Italy’s favorite frozen treat! You'll take a quick stroll to one of the city's most beloved gelaterias for a cup or a cone of your favorite flavor, made with organic regional ingredients.
