Immerse yourself in Florence’s culinary culture on a deli and market tour that provides a great introduction for first-time visitors. Rather than just eating Florentine food, you meet local vendors and sample delicacies like boutique chocolate and balsamic vinegar, which you may otherwise have missed. Plus, your guide is on hand to provide enough restaurant recommendations to last your entire vacation.
  • Get an insider glimpse into Florence's food scene
  • Tour markets and learn about local cuisine from a guide
  • Sample delicacies that you may otherwise have missed
  • All tasting samples are included
What to Expect
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.
