Overview
Ditch the checkered-tablecloth tourist traps and discover authentic Tuscan cuisine on an evening food tour of Florence. Cross the romantic Ponte Vecchio bridge into the artisan district of Oltrarno to sample olive oil, cheese, fresh bread, and other local specialties. Sip Tuscan wine in an enoteca (wine shop), savor a multicourse meal, and finish on a sweet note with cookies and gelato.
Highlights
  • Taste your way through Florence on a gourmet walking tour
  • Sample authentic Tuscan olive oil, cheese, charcuterie, and gelato
  • Drink a Super Tuscan blend in a wine bar
  • Savor Florentine soup and starters at a local restaurant
What to Expect
Meet your foodie guide on the much-photographed Ponte Vecchio bridge and cross the River Arno into the historic artisan district of the Oltrarno. Learn what distinguishes Tuscan cuisine from other regions of Italy as you stop at some of the best local bakeries, markets, and specialty shops. Sample high-quality Florentine staples, such as balsamic vinegar, olive oil, Tuscan cheese, and freshly baked bread. Get cozy at a wine bar (enoteca) near Piazza Santo Spirito for wine tasting, including a distinctive Super Tuscan blend. Next, get ready for the evening’s main event, a 3-course meal. Cap off the tasting tour in true Italian style with a sweet dessert wine paired with cantucci (almond) cookies and a scoop of creamy gelato from one of the best ice cream parlors in town.

It was beginning to rain when we met our guide Regina at Piazza Santo Spirito. Our group numbered 14 which appeared to be a good size. The first stop had a couple of nice wines with some bread based antipasto. The simple bruschetta was super, as was the liver. Next restaurant a
