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.

  • Nice walking around and sampling.

  • Absolutely amazing. Great food, interesting historical insights and excellent tour guide. Isabelle was knowledgeable and made the day fun.

  • I got really lucky depending on your viewpoint on this tour. I was traveling solo and the other couple scheduled for the tour did not show up so I got a private tour! My guide was a doll and we had a great time - since I was by myself we had extra time to take a few little detours to some extra historical spots as we moved from one food venue to the next. Highly recommend!

  • EXCELLENT! Loved this tour, worth every penny! We tasted wine and food and olive oils and we learned so much. Our guide was wonderful and taught us lots of history too and we got great reccomendationa for where to eat!

  • I was the only person who had signed up for this tour, so the tour company contacted me and asked if I wanted to move to a wine tasting tour later that same day. I said that was no problem. And, I'm glad I did!

    Linda, from the tour company Urban Adventures was so warm and wonderful! Made everyone feel at home as we walked the streets of Florence tasting food and wine.

    Would definitely recommend this tour!

  • We absolutely loved this tour..... Lucca, our guide took us all around Florence, to many of the shops where we could sample everything from truffle sandwiches to prosecco, gelato, all the delicacy meats and different wines of the region...... Everything we tasted was delicious and Lucca was incredibly
    Knowledgeable and charismatic..... We highly recommend this tour..... Ask for Lucca he answered all of our questions with great enthusiasm and was the perfect host......

  • We had an amazing guide - Luca- thank you Mille!! If you enjoy and appreciate food then you will absolutely love it! Our 12 year old daughter loved it!

  • Nice walking tour in Florence trying a lot of different kinds of really good food and drinks. Going back to the same places on my next visit to Florence. A trip I already booked.

  • Guide was not passionate about anything. Not that many foods to taste waste of money really would not recommend

  • Interesting experience. We tried authentic food: cold cuts, chocolates, truffle sandwiches, gelato. Everything artisan made. Very special. Luca is a great tour guide. Highly recomended
