Florence Gourmet Food Tour: Truffles, Chocolate, Gelato, Olive Oil, and Wine
USD 77.68
Overview

Enjoy tastings at some of Florence’s most decadent establishments on this small-group gourmet food tour, led by foodies for foodies. Savor a range of culinary experiences that would be hard to arrange independently, all curated by your gourmet guide. Try truffles, artisan chocolate, gelato, Tuscan wines, and local olive oil as you learn exactly what makes Tuscan food so special.

What to Expect

Greet your guide and small group in Florence’s historic center and begin your walking tour. Visit a delicatessen that specializes in truffles, learn how locals forage for the prized fungus, and sample a panini topped with truffle shavings as you sip prosecco wine.

Your next stop is an artisan chocolatier for a tutored tasting of different handmade chocolates. At a store that specializes in Tuscan olive oils and balsamic vinegars, learn how olive oil flavors can vary from fruity to peppery with another guided tasting.

Stroll a little further through Florence’s old stone streets and enjoy a classic gelato before you end your tour in a wine bar with a glass of Chianti. Feel free to stay as long as you like as you run through what you’ve tasted and plot your next meal.

Tasty food and great intro to the city

This is a great way to experience delicious Florentine food while familiarizing yourself with the city by walking around the main neighborhoods. Our guide described each place we went to with a bit of history, so the tour was enriching as well as tasty!

Probably a one-off bad experience

I went on this tour with my dad after having done food tours in other European cities and was disappointed. The food was excellent but the planning was pretty terrible. At most of the stops we were not anticipated and it made it difficult to...More
