The gourmet tour: a taste of the traditional Florentine delights

Ready to eat your way through Florence, one of the best places for food and wine) in the world?

You’ll begin your experience with tasting some wine and nibbles in a local wine bar, then move on to have a bite of a very “special” sandwich that will taste even better in the company of a glass of fine Chianti in a small Osteria. We'll continue our stroll with a visit to a long-established delicatessen shop to experience some of the staple products of the traditional Florentine cuisine, sampling cheese and cured meats. And of course, the Gourmet's Tour must include the famous Vin Santo with the delicious cantuccini almond cookies from Prato.

We'll top it off with a heavenly gelato made by a true professional with all the proper fresh ingredients.

Buon appetito!
