See and taste what makes Tuscan cuisine so special…
Florence – the birthplace of the Renaissance and home to Michelangelo’s famous statue of David, not to mention the world-renowned Uffizi Gallery. Tuscan cuisine holds its own among the tastiest regions in Italy. But, did you know 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 unique. The experience includes eight unique food or drink tastings, including a cookie-baking demonstration in a restaurant kitchen, and a hearty soup or stew at a local trattoria.
We’ll take you along the perfect route in Oltrarno for you to experience the neighbourhood’s easygoing charm. And even introduce you to families that have been serving up foodie treasures there for generations, so you can enjoy authentic interactions during the experience.
Note: itinerary & tastings subject to change due to seasonal availability, individual closings or local holidays.

The tour had a great variety of drinks and dinner items that represent the uniqueness of Italy and Florence. Omar our guide has a true understanding of not only the food but also the culture and history of Florence.
Beatrice was full of stories on our walking food tour. The foods (and drinks) were interesting and part of the good memories of our time in Florence. Meeting some of the shop owners made it very authentic. Thanks!
Francesco was awesome and did a great job explaining both the food and history of the great city of Florence. We enjoyed our time and tastings.
Touring Oltrarno with our knowledgeable guide Omar was an excellent experience. The tastings of true local foods, meeting the authentic owners of most of the shops & learning about the historical background of the food was very enjoyable.
Awesome experience! Highly recommend. Great for families as well. We have done several Eating Europe tours in other cities and they never disappoint.
Our guide Lisa was incredible and the food stops were all delicious. I will definitely recommend this to my friends.
