Florence Gourmet Food Tour: Truffles, Chocolate, Gelato, Olive Oil, and Wine
US$79.27
Overview

Enjoy tastings at some of Florence’s most decadent establishments on this small-group gourmet food tour, led by foodies for foodies. Savor a range of culinary experiences that would be hard to arrange independently, all curated by your gourmet guide. Try truffles, artisan chocolate, gelato, Tuscan wines, and local olive oil as you learn exactly what makes Tuscan food so special.

What to Expect

Greet your guide and small group in Florence’s historic center and begin your walking tour. Visit a delicatessen that specializes in truffles, learn how locals forage for the prized fungus, and sample a panini topped with truffle shavings as you sip prosecco wine.

Your next stop is an artisan chocolatier for a tutored tasting of different handmade chocolates. At a store that specializes in Tuscan olive oils and balsamic vinegars, learn how olive oil flavors can vary from fruity to peppery with another guided tasting.

Stroll a little further through Florence’s old stone streets and enjoy a classic gelato before you end your tour in a wine bar with a glass of Chianti. Feel free to stay as long as you like as you run through what you’ve tasted and plot your next meal.
