What you can expect

Ready to make your stomach jump for joy?! 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 your favorite local take you on a culinary adventure where everything you’ll taste will be a delicious memory.

Start off in the most Italian way, with an espresso and a sweet pastry, a cantucci. Visit a local bakery to kickstart this delicious tour around the city, and try their fresh and daily products.

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 local host. Here, you can find the freshest products like meat, fish and freshly made pasta. Enjoy a tasting of their season fruit on offer!

Try a local’s favorite: coccolo, a fried piece of bread dough and a decadent Tuscan street food commonly wedged with salty dry prosciutto and consumed 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 like the most or get a personalized recommendation by your favorite local.

As you walk through the city center, you’ll meet your next tasting, the famous antipasti! Try this local delicacy, a panini with finocchiona and cream cheese. Finocchiona is a salami with a funny story, learn about its “accidental” making or as we like to describe it, a delicious discovery. And what would be a Tuscan food tour without some wine and cheese? Go to a chic enoteca, a business dedicated to lovers of authentic flavors and high-quality food, and feel like a true local.

And don’t forget about dessert! At the end of your foodie adventure, you’ll finish off with a classic, a yummy gelato. Visit a local ice cream manufacturer, where you can find the truly local flavor of the sweet gelato. Enjoy this sweet treat as your favorite local shares with you more places to eat in the city and get personalized recommendations to satisfy your appetite.

Once you have picked the local you like the most to take you on this delicious journey, let them know your dietary needs or other requests. They can adapt the tour to fit your needs and to make your stomach even more happy!
