FLORENCE FOOD & MARKET TOUR

Inquire Booking

Let me tell you a little secret: although my tours mainly focus on art and history, I absolutely love doing tours focused on Italian food as well. I am a true foodie at heart, and love to learn about and taste all the mouthwatering typical foods when traveling. Come join me for a private three-hour walking tour in English exploring all the best foodie finds in Florence’s historic city center. I will come to get you directly at your hotel or we can meet in front of a great local café. Just like any typical day for me (and for millions of Italians!), a foodie tour must start with an Italian espresso or cappuccino (of course standing up at the bar like a local) and a casual chat about Florentine coffee and pastry culture. Then I will take you around the city to experience the best foods that Florence has to offer. We will definitely explore the historic Mercato Centrale (central market) where vendors often offer samplings of their products like prosciutto (ham), pecorino (sheep milk cheese), sundried tomatoes, and extra virgin olive oil. The market is a foodie dream filled with fresh fruits and vegetables, fish, fresh meats, salt-cured meats, and cheeses. It is a true Italian farm-to-table experience with most products being locally grown and raised. I can even guide you through the purchasing of food gifts to take back home with you or to enjoy later at your hotel. Your private tour will end near the Duomo with a little tasting of artisanal chocolate … Yum!!!
