Description

Get ready for the perfect introduction to Florence, especially if you love food! Join a food-loving local guide to learn about local Cucina povera and regional cuisines while exploring the city's small alleyways. You’ll learn why we love our food. At the first stop we will taste Tuscan prosciutto and other typical salumi, all of which come from the owner's free-range organic farm. Savour Tuscan extra virgin olive oil on toasted bread with our local pecorino cheese, perfectly washed down with a glass of Chianti wine. The next stop is charming spot that offers the best of Cucina Povera Toscana and learn what Italian grandmothers were cooking. You can look forward to Ribollita or Panzanella, Pappa al Pomodoro, Lampredotto and bread paired with local wine. Then we will visit a true iconic Enoteca, where you will enjoy tasting two glasses of exquisite wine paired with fettunta and top-notch olive oil to cleanse their palate. After that we’ll pass by this quintessential landmark on our way to the next stop: the best gelateria in town. Because who can resist trying authentic Italian gelato while in Italy? Trust us, it's unreal! Continue to a true Florentine Hidden Gem part theatre, part bookstore and part bar, with a wine window as well to taste some amazing Tuscan cookies. We will bid farewell with a glass of Vin Santo. It's a quintessential Tuscan ritual nobody should miss! Before you go, make sure to ask your local guide where else to dine and drink in the city
