Aperitivo Tour of Florence
US$89.35
Overview
Get a taste of aperitivo, Italy’s popular happy hour tradition, on a 2.5-hour tour in Florence. Begin the evening at a gelato shop with a palate-pleasing taste of mojito sorbet before heading to two wine bars to partake in happy hour Florentine-style. Sample a delicious spread of Tuscan cheeses and salami while sipping some regional vino. Numbers are limited to 12 people to ensure an intimate experience.
What to Expect
A popular social tradition in Italy, aperitivo comprises snacks and drinks to be enjoyed in a bar before dinner. Milan is believed to have started the tradition in the early 1920s, and other Italian cities quickly caught onto the trend.

Your aperitivo tour will begin at Piazza della Repubblica in central Florence, where you’ll join up with your guide and set off across the Ponte Vecchio to the Oltrarno district. First head into an artisanal gelato parlor to treat your taste buds to a mojito sorbet. While you sample, your guide will fill you in on the aperitivo scene in Florence.

Stroll to a wine bar for a flavorful glass of Chianti Reserve or Brunello di Montalcino, two top-notch Tuscan blends. Your wine will be complemented with local prosciutto, an array of creamy cheeses and wild boar salami. Learn about the characteristics of each wine from your guide as you sip and how they pair with your snacks.

Continue toward the Piazza Pitti, where you’ll enjoy a house cocktail with snacks at another wine bar. The aperitivo dishes tend to vary, but typically include Tuscan favorites such as bruschetta drizzled with garlic and tomatoes. Your tour will conclude at the bar, where you can continue drinking and sampling, if you wish.
