Italian food is celebrated well beyond the boot-shaped peninsula. Much of the best food in Italy comes from Florence - the “Cradle of the Renaissance” is celebrated for food and drink. With a local foodie guide by your side, visit some of the best places to eat in Florence. This Florence Food Tour includes a visit to the Sant'Ambrogio Market and some of the best pasta in the capital of Tuscany. As they say in Italy, your appetite comes with eating, so that's just what you'll do. And along the way, learn about Florentine culture and the history of the delicious dishes you enjoy.

Lunch at Sant'Ambrogio Market

After a nice walk and a few glasses of wine from Tuscany, sit down at Florence's Sant'Ambrogio Market to experience a typical Florentine lunch. 
Now, it's pasta time! We couldn't decide which pasta plate is our favorite, so we included three local pasta dishes at a trattoria run by two brothers. This food tour also includes:  

  • - Coccolo - A savory fried pastry popular as a snack in Florence.
  • - Local meats and cheeses - a Florentine appetizer is never complete without them.
  • - At least 3 glasses of Tuscan wine - the red nectar of the gods.
  • - Perfect Porchetta - This panino with cured meats is a Florentine staple.
  • - Trippa alla Florentina - Keep in an open mind about this authentic Florence street food.
  • - Florentine pastries - End your delicious day by sampling some delicious local sweets.

Awesome! Highly recommended.

The food tour with Mara was an absolute delight, from beginning to end. The food was wonderful, but the real treat was Mara herself. She is a delightful young woman and made the tour so much more than just a tour. The variety of foods that we tried was excellent, and all of it (except maybe the tripe) was delicious. Best of all, though, was Mara’s commentary. We felt like is was a total experience, not just a random sampling of foods. Can’t say enough about Mara.

Florence night food tour

First of all Thank you Roman Guy for not canceling our food tour and allowing us to have Daniele Cenni all to ourselves. We enjoyed the personal company of Daniele as we feastes on Florence! We cannot say enough about Daniele ‘s knowledge of food, wine and history. He was an absolute pleasure and we appreciated his patience in answering all our questions!

Florence food and wine

I loved it and our guide was so sweet and nice and had a very upbeat attitude. She was interesting and made all the food interesting. Even things not on the tour she would answer any questions we had. She rocked, Her name started with an M because we both had M names. I got to try new things and see more of the city.
