Itinerary
Your market tour begins at a central Florence location, where you’ll greet your guide and head straight to a market favored by Florentines for their weekly groceries. Learn about the products each stand sells, which include cheese, pasta, and poultry, and chat with local food vendors.

Then, you’ll head to an Italian shop that specializes in Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, prosciutto (ham), and balsamic vinegar to sample the delicacies. Stop, too, at a boutique chocolate shop for a cappuccino and a couple of chocolates before touring a wine cellar right beside Florence Cathedral or Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore (Florence Duomo).

Your tour culminates with a visit to another market, where you’ll feast your eyes on freshly baked bread, goat cheese, and roasted porchetta mushrooms. Following a glass of wine and crostini (toasted bread with a topping), your tour concludes at your original departure point.

I think it was about 2 hours. There was only three of us on the tour, so it was a little more flexible. Really enjoyed it.
