Cantuccini Tour | Weekend in Italy
Discover Prato where the passion for art meets the passion for taste!
This fun walking tour takes you to all the historical and cultural highlights of the old town, from the famous Fortress of the Emperor Frederick II to the historical building of the Palazzo del Comune. It also includes an introduction to the local recipes, such as the well known (and delicious) Cantuccini, which are also called “Biscuits of Prato.”
Prato is the capital of the Province of Prato, at only a few kilometers distance from Florence, and close to major cultural centers such as Pistoia, Pisa, Lucca, and Siena. With its rich history and dedication to culture and beauty, Prato is the ideal destination for a day-trip from Florence.
The city is situated at the foot of Monte Retaia, and the Bisenzio River, a tributary of the Arno, flows through it. Art and architecture are firmly rooted in this lively city, which has been a center for trade since the middle ages.
Prato's economy has historically been based on the textile industry, and has more recently become a centre of the slow food movement. It boasts many mouth-watering local specialities, including the cantucci, a delicious almond biscotti you'll get to taste on this tour.
