Highlights
    What to Expect
    Do you know how Florentine and Tuscan Cuisine stands apart from the rest of food in Italy? On this Florence evening food tour, taste your way through the city of Florence as you learn all about the cuisine of the region. Meet local bakers, chefs and food enthusiasts along the way as your local foodie guide leads you on a delectable stroll through one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Make sure you arrive hungry, there's a lot to eat! Packed with traditional Tuscan foods and wine, experience a delicious taste of authentic Florence. This three hour food tour includes:
    • Five tasting stops and plenty of Tuscan vino
    • A sit-down traditonal dinner with Florentine steak
    • A friendly and local English-speaking foodie guide
    • A maximum group size of 14 people
    Traditional Florentine Food and Wine
    Many of Italy's delicacies originate from the food eaten by "plebs" back in the day. Developed as a way to maximize food waste and use every part of an animal, this working-class style of cooking is responsible for the popularity of the lampredotto, or tripe, sandwich. Although the popular street food sandwich started out as the only thing poor people could afford, the tradition is still alive and well in modern Florence. Alongside the lampredotto, sample some pappa al pomodoro, followed by a selection of local cured meats and the first of many delicious glasses of wine.
    Tuscan Wine Tasting and Truffles
    Florence is in Tuscany, one of the best wine-producing regions in the world. At your next stop, an outstanding wine bar, taste two different types of fine Tuscan Wine. Plus, taste some truffle and crostini in the heart of Florence. Remember, ask your guide if you have any questions or would like any advice on recipes.
    Old-Style Italian Bakery
    Right around the corner you'll find a family-run bakery where you get to sample cantucci, the biscuits of Prato. After tasting both the almond and chocolate cantucci, bring home a bag for later.
    Pasta and Florentine Steak*
    A food tour in Florence without pasta or steak? No way! Sit down in a historical tavern, to an outstanding evening meal starting with pasta. Next, witness a cooking demonstration of the famous bistecca alla Fiorentina (Florentine steak). Tuscan cuisine has plenty of delicious and famous dishes, but if you must choose only one of them, this is the one to get. This stunning Restaurant not only serves up great food, but it's filled with Renaissance culture and curiosities.
    *If only three (or less) people end up on your food tour, we may end up serving tagliata instead of Florentina steak. Tagliata is a juicey and thick cut of beef that's simple and delicious.

    The only stops that I liked on this tour was the first one where we tasted bread with some spreads and had a glass of wine, and a gelato shop which had delicious and unique gelato flavors. The steak with potatoes was dry. I don't...More

    email or Facebook message theromanguy. They were very responsive to me. We did a food tour in Rome that had fried fish at one of the stops, can't remember what kind, but it was good.
