Summary
There’s no such thing as ‘Italian food’. Italy’s food is entirely regional but for most visitors, that quintessential ‘Italian’ menu is actually Tuscan; and in particular, Florentine. On this authentic experience you’ll eat like a local on a restaurant-and-bar-hopping dine around, devouring a full meal including starters, local soup, first course, second course and dessert! Oh and the wine of course, explore wine cellars and get to taste either a Super Tuscan wine or a 40-50 year old chianti. There will be many other surprises for your taste buds as you learn about the Tuscan cuisine.
Description
In Florence, dinner isn’t just another meal, it’s a night-long symphony of food, flavors, and good friends. A celebration of regional cuisine and the flavors that make it unique. It’s not hard to find good food in Florence, but if you really want to eat as the Florentines do you need to come along with one of our local expert foodies to visit wine bars, restaurants, gelaterias, and more. For a culinary experience that introduces you to the very best of the city.

You’ll start your tour in the bustling plaza of Santo Spirito and head into an enoteca, or wine bar, where you’ll be able to sample some local wine and explore the underground wine cellars. You’ll sample Tuscan charcuterie, cheeses, and fresh-baked bread along with regional olive oils, balsamic vinegars and truffle. As you eat, your guide will explain why Florence has become recognized as one of the world capitals of good eating, even within Italy, and how the region of Tuscany is able to produce such quality foods.

In between the artisans’ workshops that line Via Santo Spirito you’ll pass by our favorite bakery in Florence before sitting down at a local trattoria for the main event.

We hope you’ve saved some room because what comes next is the highlight of the evening. After a typical Florentine soup, you’ll devour your first and second course. Let us surprise you here...

Finally, our last stop will be at our favorite gelateria in Florence to grab a cup of your favorite gelato, invented right here in Florence. Our tour will end in a little square in the Oltarno Neighborhood.
 
Accompanied throughout by one of our local expert foodies, you’ll feel much more like you are spending an evening eating with friends than going on a food tour. Bring an appetite and an open mind and we’ll sort out the rest.
