Know More about this tour

Meet your guide in central Florence, and then set off on your leisurely paced walking tour, visiting several specialty food shops around town while learning about Tuscanys gastronomic heritage. The regions love affair with food and wine is founded on a deep respect for its produce, where raw materials such as juicy plump Tuscan olives have been nurtured for centuries.

Start with a visit to a delicatessen that specializes in foraging and selling truffles, one of the regions highly prized natural ingredients. Sip on a glass of zesty crisp prosecco (the Italians answer to Champagne) and soak up the bubbles with a panino tartufato a delicate pt sandwich seasoned to perfection with slivers of the gourmet fungi.

Stroll to an artisan chocolate shop nearby and treat your sweet tooth to a chocolate-tasting session. Savor silky-soft nuggets of the sweet treat, noting the rich flavors present in high-quality chocolate, and then head out of the shop to visit an olive oil boutique.

Popular with locals and visitors alike, the high-end shop specializes in the sale of quality Tuscan olive oils and balsamic vinegars. Sit down for a tasting with the shop's charming owner and learn about the different varieties of fruity and piquant oils on offer.

Take a wander along the pretty cobblestone alleyways that make up the backstreets of the city, and stop for a gelato from a locally loved gelateria before winding up inside a wine bar. Sip on a glass of Chianti one of Tuscanys typically robust and tannic reds and nibble on chunks of warm focaccia bread to finish your foodie adventure.
