Florence – the birthplace of the Renaissance and home to Michelangelo’s famous statue of David, not to mention the world-renowned Uffizi Gallery. Tuscan cuisine holds its own among the tastiest regions in Italy. But, did you know that Florentine people are more likely to eat a bowl of bread and bean soup than a plate of pasta?
On our 4-hour walking food tour through Oltrarno – the Florentine equivalent of Paris’ Left Bank – you will get to taste what makes this city’s cuisine so unique. The experience includes 8 unique food or drink tastings, including a cookie-baking demonstration in a restaurant kitchen, a hearty soup or stew at a local trattoria, Florence’s legendary lampredotto sandwich, a typical Tuscan Crostino perfectly paired with a glass of Chianti, and gelato.
We will take you along the perfect route in Oltrarno for you to experience the neighbourhood’s easygoing charm. And even introduce you to families that have been serving up foodie treasures there for generations, so you can enjoy authentic interactions during the experience.
