Food Market Tour

Food Market Tour

Our food and wine tour will start from the city market, still very popular among locals, where you can see how we Italians do our grocery shopping. We don’t only see food as a necessary element for our survival, but also as a true experience to share with the ones we love, which starts from the moment we buy the product until the time we cook and enjoy our meal. Moreover, contact with traders is essential to be able to be advised on which are the best products and also learn some new recipes: seasonality, freshness and territory are the key words of our cuisine. In this experience at the City Market, you can truly immerse yourself in local culinary traditions and understand the cultural value that food has in our life as well as taste delicious typical products.
Discovering Florence and its street food

Discovering Florence and its street food

After the city market tour, we will continue our itinerary by visiting the main squares of the city. I will guide you through Florence’s most famous historical sites to show you its artistic and architectonical beauties, such as the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, Piazza della Signoria, the Basilica of Santa Croce and Ponte Vecchio. I will also accompany you through the beaten paths looking for traditional food and wine shops. I will tell you interesting anecdotes and popular legends about local typical drinks and foods for you to get to know another side of Florence that is equally noteworthy, which is the "Florence to taste" side. This tour travels through my favorite shops, trattorias and bars, where we will stop to taste local biscuits, stuffed flatbread, Chianti wine and much more, but above all, through the best places of Florentine street food.
