Description

Your knowledgeable and English-speaking guide will escort you throughout this amazing tour to discover the most delicious culinary traditions and the artistic beauties of the cradle of the Italian Renaissance. This incredible food experience includes all the must-bite Tuscan delicacies; from the typical Florentine street food 'panino', to the sophisticated truffle and balsamic vinegar. You will also taste foods varying from salty hams, to sweet fried breads, from fresh made raviolis to the traditional peasant soups ribollita and pappa al pomodoro. All of these samples will of course be paired with the proper wines, complimenting their flavors. While treating your taste buds, you will also indulge your heart and soul as you admire some of the most important Florentine masterpieces. Your guide will tell you the story of the famous Medici family, who had the incredible merit to attract to Florence the best minds of their times. This in turn helped to give birth to the Italian Renaissance. You will be astonished by the marvel of the St. Mary of the Flowers, the Gates of Paradise, and Giotto’s Bell Tower. Brunelleschi was known in Florence to have made people believe in things that did not exist, and the construction of this dome sparked years of debate on what was the “magic trick” which provided the result that lay in front of everyone. Last but not least, you will literally fall in love for the magnificent Santa Croce Square and its Franciscan church. Despite the vast size and the swarms of tourists, this is a touchingly intimate place, perhaps out of respect for the illustrious Italian people buried here. Michelangelo, Galileo, Machiavelli, the poet Foscolo, the philosopher Gentile and the composer Rossini all rest here, and it is this collection of famous bodies that has helped give this church the nickname 'the Temple of the Italian Glories'.
