Keep everyone in your family full & satisfied on a tasty food tour! Taste the best food the Tuscan area has to offer and discover Florence one bite at a time. Enjoy delicious tastings that range from savory to sweet to simply amazing! Let a local take you on a culinary adventure where everything you’ll taste will be a delicious memory. And the best thing: everyone in your family will love it because you can personalize it around everyone’s taste!

Start off in the most Italian way, with an espresso! Grab your coffee at a local ‘pasticceria’ and learn about the Italian coffee culture. And share with your kids a sweet pastry, a cantucci, at a local bakery to kickstart this delicious tour around the city. Try their fresh and daily products that will give you that extra energy kick during your private experience. Then, get involved in the local daily life of the Florentines and go to the Sant’Ambrogio market where you’ll see first hand the local hustle! Bond with the sellers and learn how to haggle with the help of your favorite local. Here, you can find the freshest products like meat, fish and freshly made pasta. Enjoy the best seasonal fruit for a refreshing tasting!

Try a local’s favorite: coccolo, a fried piece of bread dough with salty dry prosciutto and eaten with a fresh cheese called “stracchino”. Is your mouth watering right now? It’s a must-try tasting! There are different variations you can try, pick the one you & your kids like the most or get a personalized recommendation by your local foodie.

As you walk through the city center, you’ll meet your next tasting, the famous antipasti! This local Tuscan lunch has plenty of variations, giving you the option to make everyone in your family happy and for the adults, it is perfectly paired with a nice glass of wine. A friendly local will be there to help you find the perfect antipasti option for you! And don’t forget about dessert! At the end of your foodie adventure, you’ll finish off with a classic, a yummy gelato. Your kids will love the artisan gelato shop, a local’s favorite and a place that offers fresh gelato every day. Which one would you like to try? Your favorite local will help you choose! Enjoy this sweet treat as a local shares with you more places to eat in the city that your family will love and get personalized recommendations to satisfy your appetite.

Once you have picked the local you like the most, let them know your family’s dietary needs or other requests. They can adapt the tour to fit your needs and to make your stomach & every member of your family even more happy!
