Florence Markets and Delis Visit, Including Food Tasting
US$53.80
Overview
Immerse yourself in Florence’s culinary culture on a deli and market tour that provides a great introduction for first-time visitors. Rather than just eating Florentine food, you’ll meet local vendors and sample lesser known delicacies, including boutique chocolate and balsamic vinegar, which you may otherwise have missed. Plus, your guide is on hand to provide enough restaurant recommendations to last your entire vacation.
What to Expect
Your market tour begins at a central Florence location, where you’ll greet your guide and head straight to a market favored by Florentines for their weekly groceries. Learn about the products each stand sells, which include cheese, pasta, and poultry, and chat with local food vendors.

Then, you’ll head to an Italian shop that specializes in Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, prosciutto (ham), and balsamic vinegar to sample the delicacies. Stop, too, at a boutique chocolate shop for a cappuccino and a couple of chocolates before touring a wine cellar right beside Florence Cathedral or Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore (Florence Duomo).

Your tour culminates with a visit to another market, where you’ll feast your eyes on freshly baked bread, goat cheese, and roasted porchetta mushrooms. Following a glass of wine and crostini (toasted bread with a topping), your tour concludes at your original departure point.

I think it was about 2 hours. There was only three of us on the tour, so it was a little more flexible. Really enjoyed it.
