Overview
The cured meats, breads and cheeses produced in and around Florence are every bit as good as you think they are. Find out for yourself on this market tour that’s full of the good stuff, namely: vino, pecorino, parmiggiano reggiano and other items of cheesy and meaty goodness.
Highlights
  • Get an insider glimpse into Florence's food scene
  • Tour markets and learn about local cuisine from a guide
  • Sample delicacies that you may otherwise have missed
  • All tasting samples are included
What to Expect
Your market tour begins at a central Florence location, where you’ll greet your guide and head straight to a market favored by Florentines for their weekly groceries. Learn about the products each stand sells, which include cheese, pasta, and poultry, and chat with local food vendors.
Then, you’ll head to an Italian shop that specializes in Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, prosciutto (ham), and balsamic vinegar to sample the delicacies. Stop, too, at a boutique chocolate shop for a cappuccino and a couple of chocolates before touring a wine cellar right beside Florence Cathedral or Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore (Florence Duomo).
Your tour culminates with a visit to another market, where you’ll feast your eyes on freshly baked bread, goat cheese, and roasted porchetta mushrooms. Following a glass of wine and crostini (toasted bread with a topping), your tour concludes at your original departure point.

We were so surprised at how much food we got to taste. We have done similar tours but none had as much food as this one. Our guide Nemi was fantastic. Worth every penny!

I think it was about 2 hours. There was only three of us on the tour, so it was a little more flexible. Really enjoyed it.
