Full description
There is no better way to learn more about Florence than through its food. This Florence food tour, under the leadership of an expert local guide, takes you through the streets of Florence as you learn about Tuscan cuisine.

The tour starts with a stop at the oldest bakery in Florence for an authentic Italian breakfast. Indulge in fresh coffee and pastries and see what remains of the original bakery, including ancient tools and equipment on display.

Next, head to the most important food market in town, Mercato Centrale (San Lorenzo Market). The first floor of the market is filled with local vendors selling fresh produce and high-quality ingredients. The second floor boasts specialized food stalls, each dedicated to a different Florentine staple. Your local tour guide will lead you through the market, telling you about its history and stopping at various stalls, so you can taste local specialties such as cheese, salami, panini, pizza, sweets and wine.

In the stretch of two hours, you will stop for tastings at five different locations, all of which are still frequented by locals. Moreover, the tour is child-friendly and has something to enjoy for all.
