THE OTHER SIDE OF FLORENCE FOOD TOUR

Florence – the birthplace of the Renaissance and home to Michelangelo’s famous statue of David, not to mention the world-renowned Uffizi Gallery. Did you know that Tuscan cuisine holds its own among the tastiest regions in Italy? Or that Florentine people are more likely to eat a bowl of bread and bean soup than a plate of pasta?

On our 4-hour walking food tour through Oltrarno – the Florentine equivalent of Paris’ left bank – you’ll get to taste what makes this city’s cuisine so special and unique within Italy. Through countless food and wine tastings at 8 authentic stops, you’ll learn how to make Italian cantucci (cookies), you’ll sample the local salami, and you’ll experience the neighbourhood’s Bohemian vibe – full of students, artists and lively culture. You’ll meet the families that have been serving up the foodie treasures locals have savoured for generations. Come and join us for an unforgettable day of food and fun in Florence!

TRIP HIGHLIGHTS

• Step into a local restaurant's kitchen and watch a baking demonstration of homemade cantucci (Italian cookies, often known as biscotti) – and of course taste the freshly baked batch!
• Sample typical Tuscan cheeses and our deliciously fennel-spiced salami, Finocchiona.
• Sink your teeth into a typical Tuscan Crostino, washed down with a glass of the region’s famous wine: Chianti.
• Visit an authentic Italian trattoria, and taste one of their seasonal soups or stews.
• Try real-deal Gelato – we promise you’ll never look at frozen treats the same way again!
• For the adventurous foodies, try Florence’s famous Lampredotto (cow stomach sandwich) – better than it sounds!
• Wander down cobblestone streets as your expert guide makes the city’s history come to life.
