We will be taking this tour in Sept and then are considering taking the Florence food tour a few days later. Do you think this would seem to similar? I know the food tour is in the city of Florence and the markets but I wonder if the foods and info would be similar. Your thoughts?
ALSO, do you think one full day in Bologna in addition to a day on this tour is enough? We are not interested in art or history but mostly food.
Linda, check out Walkabout Tours in Florence. The cooking class in the Tuscan hillside was very well done! My Husband & I had a great time. Plan for the day and expect to go home stuffed! Gorgeous location and great staff!
The food tour in Florence will be completely different, likely. Parmesan-Reggiano is only produced in the area near Bologna. Balsamic vinegar as well. Most Prosciutto but not all. We didn't do art in Bologna. We toured Lamboghini & Ferrari on 1 day and the food tour on the 2nd day. In Florence/Tuscany we took a cooking class that was great!
You will not be disappointed with this fabulous food tour! It focuses on the local foods for the region - cheese, balsamic and Prosciutto. Make sure you only have a light breakfast as the food provided on the day is exceptional. I would suspect that the Florence food tour would focus on highlighting the Firenze regional produce.
A day on the food tour and one full day in Bologna would be sufficient for you to sample all the delights of Bologna as well as having time to take in the historic buildings in the heart of the town.
Enjoy your trip!
