Afternoon Food Tour with Beer Tasting in Florence
Your first food tasting stop - cured meat and cheese - will be in the heart of the city, before your guide takes you across the river into the “real” Florence, to the “Oltrarno” district. In the intimate atmosphere of Santo Spirito, your first beer sample awaits at one of the best Italian craft beer locations in town. And if you are not a beer lover, Italian wine or craft sodas are available at each stop. Your next food tasting stop is at a charming local bakery shop. Here you’ll taste the “Cecina” - a delicious savory chickpea flour pancake, specialty of the Tuscan culinary tradition. Next, taste a special kind of yeast-free sourdough pizza, carefully prepared by the master “pizzaiolo.” It pairs perfectly with another Belgian-style, but purely Italian-made, beer sample. A traditional, family-run Florentine “trattoria” is your next destination - be ready to share the table with other customers as Italians do in trattorias. Your guide will select the day’s special for you and introduce you to the Florentine food traditions and culture. Finish your afternoon tour with a unique food and drink pairing - chocolate cake accompanied by a stout style beer. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by this tasty combination!
