The Other Side of Florence Food Tour

As Featured In

As recommended by 99% of users on TripAdvisor

Florence – the birthplace of the Renaissance and home to Michelangelo’s famous statue of David, not to mention the world-renowned Uffizi Gallery. Did you know that Tuscan cuisine holds its own among the tastiest regions in Italy? Or that Florentine people are more likely to eat a bowl of bread and bean soup than a plate of pasta?

On our 4-hour walking food tour through Oltrarno – the Florentine equivalent of Paris’ left bank – you’ll get to taste what makes this city’s cuisine so special and unique within Italy. Through countless food and wine tastings at 8 authentic stops, you’ll learn how to make Italian cantucci (cookies), you’ll sample the local salami, and you’ll experience the neighbourhood’s Bohemian vibe – full of students, artists and lively culture. You’ll meet the families that have been serving up the foodie treasures locals have savoured for generations. Come and join us for an unforgettable day of food and fun in Florence!

Janice A – Tripadvisor Review

A wonderful way to see a unique part of the city and sample terrific food. I’ve taken food tours with this company in Rome and Florence and now Amsterdam. Each tour has been unique and truly outstanding. Our guide Estephen shared interesting information about the Jordaan area and the foods we sampled. Highly recommend!
