Itinerary

Your culinary adventure begins in central Florence, where you’ll greet your guide and head on foot to a coffee shop to sample two varieties of coffee bean.

Next, you’ll taste a panino tartufato (truffle pâté sandwich) before wandering past stalls selling enticing Tuscan produce in San Lorenzo Market. Here, you’ll pleasure your palate with olive oils and sweet balsamic vinegars paired with crostini (toasted Italian bread).

Taste wine from Tuscan vineyards in an enoteca (wine shop), accompanied by regional cheese and meat, before satisfying your sweet tooth with Italian ice cream at a gelateria favored by locals.

Your tour concludes at the original start point.
