COMPARE ALL FLORENCE TOURS

Piazza Della Signoria

Your food tour in Florence starts in Piazza della Signoria, Florence's outdoor art gallery. Meet your food-loving tour guide and get a brief introduction to this important piazza. The Piazza della Signoria has been the center of political life in Florence since the 14th century, home of Palazzo Vecchio, the city's town hall.

Traditional Florentine Food and Wine

On your first foodie stop of the night, try out some aperitivo favorites. From the piazza, you'll walk to a street lined by panino shops, specializing in delicious local meats and cheeses. Try out some Tuscan cuisine such as assagio di pecorino, bruschetta al pomodoro and more.  Wash it all down with some delicious wine and continue on your foodie journey.

Ponte Vecchio Bridge

Ponte Vecchio means “old bridge” in Italian. Shops have lined the famed Ponte Vecchio since the 13th century. Originally, there were many types of shops, including fishmongers, butchers and tanners. These shops caused such a great stench in the area, that in 1593 Ferdinand I proclaimed that only jewelers were allowed to set up shop on the bridge.

Tuscan Wine Tasting and Truffles

Florence is in Tuscany, one of the best wine-producing regions in the world. At your next stop, an outstanding wine bar, taste two different types of fine Tuscan wine. Adding some local food to the mix, taste some truffle, olive oil and crostini in the heart of Florence

Piazza Santo Spirito

Pass through Piazza Santo Spirito on the way to one of the best bakeries in Florence. During the day, this is a peaceful place to wander through, especially when the local markets are active. In the evening, the square is where locals flock to enjoy a beer or cocktail. Artisan shops and art studios often open up in the evening too, giving this place a creative, hipster vibe. 

Old-Style Italian Bakery

Right around the corner, you'll find a family-run bakery where you get to sample cantucci, the biscuits of Prato. The owners claim to make the best in Florence. After tasting both the almond and chocolate cantucci, bring home a bag for later. 

Pasta and Florentine Steak*

 Sit down in a historical tavern and enjoy an outstanding evening meal starting with pasta. Then if your group has four or more people, taste the local delicacy bistecca alla Fiorentina (Florentine Steak). Florence is famous around the world for this delightfully savory and rare meat. Finding a good one isn't easy. While it might seem undercooked, Florentine steak is cooked to perfection, and its pink center makes it juicy and flavorful.

* If only three (or less) people end up on your small group tour, we may end up serving tagliata instead of Florentina steak. Tagliata is a juicey and thick cut of beef that's simple and delicious.

The Best Gelato in Florence

If you've been in Italy, regardless of the time of year, you know how important it is to end each evening with Italian ice cream. Before ending your food tour in Florence, stop at a gelato shop for a refreshing after-dinner sweet.  After your tour concludes, make sure to ask your guide where the best nightlife spots are an continue to explore the city on your own.

Florence Food Tour at night with Steak Florentine

This was a fun tour with a nice small group. Our guide, Ruby, was quite knowledgeable about the food & wine we received as well as many facts about the history of the city. The Steak Florentine dinner was a small sample size, but there was enough food in total to fill us up with all the other testings. We really enjoyed this tour during our short stay in Florence. Thank you Ruby!!!

Great Evening

For our first trip to Italy, my wife and I started in Rome and then Sorrento and in both cities, the number of restaurants was overwhelming with no reliable way to separate the "touristy" restaurants from real food the locals eat. Thankfully in Florence, we had a scheduled food tour with The Roman Guy on our very first night there. What a treat. Our guide/host Elisa was fantastic. She is friendly, understands the local cuisine and took us to quite a few "real" food places, and we finally felt like we were experiencing authentic Italian food--it certainly tasted great. We enjoyed one of the restaurants so much, we went back the very next night. Worth every cent--highly recommend doing this and wish we'd done the exact same thing on our first nights in Rome and Sorrento. Next visit to Italy, we'll definitely book another tour with the Roman Guy.

A little taste of Florence

This was an amazing tour full of delicious small bites. We got to try a number of different local dishes. The plates were small but there was quite enough to fill me up and everyone was so friendly. It was the perfect end to our Florence trip.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where to meet?

Piazza della Signoria - in the center of the square, near the Equestrian statue of Cosimo I (a man on a horse). A representative will be there holding a sign with our company name on it.

What to bring?

This is a leisurely walking tour, so make sure you wear comfortable shoes. Come hungry!

Q: Is Florentine steak always served?

A: If only three (or less) people end up on your tour, we might end up serving tagliata instead of Florentina steak. Tagliata is a juice & thick cut of beef that is grilled, then carved. Simple and delicious.

 

Q: First things first, how much wine do we actually get?

 

A: We promise at least 3 glasses, but in many places, it is served by the carafe which is the typical family style way in Rome. In this case, you can probably drink more, but don't overdo it!

 

Q: What if I have food allergies, intolerances or other requirements?

 

A: Please contact us in advance so we can do our best to accommodate your needs.

 

Q: Can I bring my kids and do I have to pay for them?

 

A: If your child is under 6 years of age and will not be eating during the tour, you do not need to pay for them. If they will be eating please pay the youth seat. 

 

Q: Do the tasting stops on this tour ever change?

 

A: Stops and tastings on this tour are subject to change due to seasonal/holiday venue closures. As the places we frequent on this Rome Food Tour are local institutions and family-run businesses, they can close at any time with very little to no notice. In this situation, your guide will take you to another nearby eatery. If you have any doubts about your mobility, we recommend you take a Wine Day in the Chianti Hills from Florence or aPrivate Florence Walking Tour.
