Florence lies in the heart of Tuscany, a region of world-renowned wines and honest food created from the abundance of local produce. This 4-day wine and food package is a teasing taster of the amazing wine tasting opportunities and mouth-watering food experiences available in Florence.
Day 1. Arrive Florence
On arrival in Florence make your way to your centrally located, 4-star hotel.
Day 2. Florentine street food tour
We recommend a light breakfast at your hotel, as this morning you will join a small group, guided street food tour of Florence with plenty of food tasting opportunities!
If you really want to immerse yourself in Florence, you can't just visit its museums and admire its architecture, you should also taste its cuisine! This half day walking tour is an introduction to the popular gastronomy along the streets of Florence.
As you stroll through the city with your knowledgeable local guide you will learn about Florentine cuisine, stopping on the way to meet local food artisans and sample traditional snacks. You can expect to taste Schiacciate (flat bread) with mixed cold cuts and the classic Lampredotto sandwich. And, of course, the typically Florentine Cantuccini and Vin Santo will be enjoyed at the Sant'Ambrogio Market.
Your afternoon is free at leisure.
