This tour is for those who want to learn more about Florence and experience the taste of Tuscany.
You will find out where the best gelaterias are hidden, where to get the best Florentine steak, what is the best olive oil and Chianti to choose from, and much more!
Begin your tour at Piazza Santa Maria Novella where you will find one of the city's earliest landmarks – an incredible Dominican church. There you will learn who created the life's elixir and how you can purchase it now.
Then experience local trippa and lampredotto street food as you stroll around the historic San Lorenzo Market.
You will see the fabulous courtyard of Medicci-Ricardi palace, where Catherina lived. It is there where you will discover the fascinating stories about her food habits and how she stole Florentine recipes for the French court.
Discover why Florentines eat pastries according to the season and why the only off-season dessert is a holy treat on your walk through Piazza Della Signoria – a home to the magnificent Neptune Fountain.
Then from the Ponto Vecchio you will enjoy the best view of Florence and learn how it became the mecca of jewelers from the nasty butchy market.
As opposed to other excursions, this tour will not give you boring lectures about those places, but rather tell you about who and what ate there.
Remember: it is essential to try the local cuisine in order to truly understand the city!
