highlights
  • Take in the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of the Market of San’Ambrogio
  • Savor a selection of Tuscan cured meats like fennel salami and wild boar
  • Taste some of Florence’s best wines and snacks, including olives, crostini and many more
  • Sample local cheeses and indulge in a cold gelato
We start in a local enoteca (an informal restaurant) where you’ll taste the region’s wines straight from the barrel and sample traditional snacks like crostini, olives, and olive oil.

Next you’ll be introduced to the humble origins of Florentine food with their traditional cucina povera or “peasant food”. You guide will teach you how the history of Florence shaped this type of cuisine before giving you a chance to try some, but beware: dishes like lampredotto, a favorite food made from cow’s stomach, aren’t for everyone - we’ll leave it up to you whether you’d like to try or not.

We move from famine to feast as we dive into the sensory banquet that is Sant’Ambrogio Market – where Florence’s locals and chefs come to do their daily shopping. As we wander the teaming stalls, stepping in and out of the best local food stores, you’ll taste a variety of Tuscan delicacies from cured meats like finocchiona (fennel salami) and cinghiale (boar) to cheeses like the world-famous pecorino.

We hope you still have room in your stomach because the tour finishes at a local trattoria where you will sample some of the city’s finest primi (starters) before topping it all off with coffee and a gelato.

As part of a group of 12 or fewer you will have plenty of time and access to quiz your expert foodie guide on everything you want to know about Tuscan food. The guide will also offer you advice on when, where and how to eat in Florence so you won’t just eat well during the tour, you’ll eat like a local for the rest of your trip too!

“The tour was conducted by a food & wine enthusiast/guide who knew much about food and wine and made my first walking tour (ever) most enjoyable! Ishmael (I believe this is how he spelled his name) was engaging and enjoyable. How can a day go wrong that starts with wine and bruschetta? We strolled through a fresh market, sampled delightful street food and learned so much while having great fun! The education an fun I had in this tour was etched in my memory so much that I would request another tour by him upon return to Florence.”

“A delightful tour and well worth taking the time. We did think having a radio communications system may add to the tour, hard at times to keep up close to hear what was being discussed between stops.”
