Aperitivo Tour of Florence
USD 90.42
Overview
Get a taste of aperitivo, Italy’s popular happy hour tradition, on a 2.5-hour tour in Florence. Begin the evening at a gelato shop with a palate-pleasing taste of mojito sorbet before heading to two wine bars to partake in happy hour Florentine-style. Sample a delicious spread of Tuscan cheeses and salami while sipping some regional vino. Numbers are limited to 12 people to ensure an intimate experience.
What to Expect
A popular social tradition in Italy, aperitivo comprises snacks and drinks to be enjoyed in a bar before dinner. Milan is believed to have started the tradition in the early 1920s, and other Italian cities quickly caught onto the trend.

Your aperitivo tour will begin at Piazza della Repubblica in central Florence, where you’ll join up with your guide and set off across the Ponte Vecchio to the Oltrarno district. First head into an artisanal gelato parlor to treat your taste buds to a mojito sorbet. While you sample, your guide will fill you in on the aperitivo scene in Florence.

Stroll to a wine bar for a flavorful glass of Chianti Reserve or Brunello di Montalcino, two top-notch Tuscan blends. Your wine will be complemented with local prosciutto, an array of creamy cheeses and wild boar salami. Learn about the characteristics of each wine from your guide as you sip and how they pair with your snacks.

Continue toward the Piazza Pitti, where you’ll enjoy a house cocktail with snacks at another wine bar. The aperitivo dishes tend to vary, but typically include Tuscan favorites such as bruschetta drizzled with garlic and tomatoes. Your tour will conclude at the bar, where you can continue drinking and sampling, if you wish.

The hidden gems we would have missed

I was not sure what to expect with this tour, but it was fantastic. We saw some places that we would NEVER have known existed. Martina was great and extremely knowledgable.

Did not live up to its poetntial

Sure, hitting a few venues to take in the "aperitivo" experience is a great way to end the day but I expected more than just visits to three venues. I took this tour on my first full day in Florence and was a bit disappointed....More

Great introduction to Florence

Francesca was a fantastic tour guide. She gave us a fantastic introduction to Florence. We came away with recommendations for restaurants, gelato and sightseeing recommendations. There is no better guide than a local - and a friendly one at that! Thanks Francesca.
