Small-Group Dine Around Florence: An Authentic Evening Food and Wine Experience

Select Date and Travellers
From
US$84.31
Date
2 travellers
Overview
There’s no such thing as ‘Italian food’. Italy’s food is entirely regional but for most visitors, that quintessential ‘Italian’ menu is actually Tuscan; and in particular, Florentine. On this authentic experience you’ll eat like a local on a restaurant-and-bar-hopping dine around, devouring a full meal including starters, local soup, first course, second course and dessert! Oh and the wine of course, explore wine cellars and get to taste either a Super Tuscan wine or a 40-50 year old chianti. There will be many other surprises for your taste buds as you learn about the Tuscan cuisine.

Maximum Group Size: 14 people
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.
