Know More about this tour

Meet your guide at Piazza della Repubblica in central Florence, and set off on your stroll across the iconic bridge to the bohemian neighborhood of Oltrarno. First stop is an artisanal gelato parlor to try one of the shops popular mojito sorbets. As you savor your sorbet, your guide will talk about Florence and its all-important aperitivo scene.
A tradition firmly rooted in Italian life, aperitivo consists of a pre-dinner snack with drinks in a bar. While Milan is believed to have started the tradition in the early 1920s, other Italian cities quickly caught onto the trend, but few struggle to do it better than Florence; as the capital of Tuscany, the city has world-renowned ingredients right at its fingertips.
Leave the gelato parlor and stroll to a traditional wine bar for a glass of Tuscan wine either Brunello di Montalcino or a Chianti reserve alongside a platter of wild boar salami, Tuscan prosciutto (ham) and a selection of creamy ripe cheeses. Listen to your guide talking about the wines origins as you eat, and discover how to match wines with food.
Continue to your second and final bar of the evening near Piazza Pitti, enjoying a house cocktail with snacks. The exact dishes vary each time, but expect something typically Tuscan like bruschetta topped with juicy tomatoes and garlic. Your tour finishes here, but you can stay inside for as long as you like, making the most of your evening independently!

  • I was alone in Florence and this was a fun way to spend my first night there and venture around the streets of Florence. Do this tour early on when you visit Florence.

  • Absolutely brilliant. We had an amazing tour, learned much more than expected and had fun. One of the best food/drink tours I've done in my years.

  • This was a fun tour! Enjoyed the wine and the food at each stop! We started out at Greta Milopulos, which was a small quaint sandwich shop with fantastic wine and local meats and cheeses, next was a liquor store that also had some amazing hors d'oeuvres, and finally stopped at GILO Restaurant and tried some of their personalized specialties! Thoroughly enjoyed the tour! Worth the money!

  • we did not enjoy this tour...drinking is not our thing. we were expecting to learn about the historty of aperitivo and the food. Very ordinary...biege.

  • Very nice tour...good eats and good wine and excellent company.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • We took this tour our first night in Florence. We had so much fun with our guide and the others on the tour. We had three stops for drinks and appetizers...each venue was quite different yet all excellent. I highly recommend this tour.

  • We didn the Aperitivo Tour shortly after ariving for a two week stay in Florence. It is a great way to get your feet wet. I helped in us being able to find our way for the remainder our stay. Quite a bit of walking from refreshment stop to the next, but the hostess guide gave us interesting informaion about the areas we passed through, throughtout the tour. I would recommend this for first time visitors to Florence.

  • Our guide was terrific - very personable and knowledgeable about wines. We stopped at three different types of venues - the first very casual, the second a wine/food shop with a wine cellar and the third, an elegant bar. It was nice to experience the different types of options available. While we enjoyed all three, we especially liked the second stop where we sampled wonderful appetizers and wines in a private space in the wine cellar. Definitely would do it again.

  • Our tour guide was awesome!!! We really enjoyed our trip!!!
