Tuscany & indeed Florence offer a wealth of culinary delights from food to wine. During the Florence Food Market tour, you will get to experience some of the best options. 

With your local expert guide, you will get to meet the people behind these delicious products. We will introduce you to them as they enthusiastically tell you about their culinary traditions (and without doubt, they’ll tell you all about how their ‘nonna’ used to cook!)

What Is Included In The Florence Food Market Tour:

  • Licensed, expert food guide
  • A guided tour of the Sant’Ambrogio market including several tastings of food including cheeses, salamis & other local delicacies 
  • A coffee at the famous Cibreo cafe

Florence Food Market Tour Description

This tour is perfect for people staying in Florence, who want to learn more about the typical dishes of the Tuscan area. You will meet your expert guide at the Cibreo Caffe, where you will have a real Italian ‘caffè’ standing at the ‘banco’ or bar like the Italians do, before strolling across to the Sant’Ambrogio market.  

Why have we chosen this market? Because it is close yet just far enough away from the historic center to make this a truly LOCAL market. Indeed, it is also where many of our guides also shop for their fresh produce!

Once inside, you will start your culinary journey. You will not only try the local produce; you will also hear all the stories that the stallholders & producers at the market have to offer.

You will try local delicacies such as the local typical bread of the area that is still being produced in the same way the Florentines did in ages past, creamy cheeses, a variety of cold cuts, and of course what better way to end this food tour than with a gelato!

Florence Food Market Tour Itinerary Details

This food tour is a 3-hour experience, in which your guide will share with you the typical products of the area and of course have you taste them. The tastings that you will receive during the tour, including a coffee in the morning, the food and wine at the market, and the gelato are all included in the tour price. If you want to shop for some ingredients for your own meals, your guide will be happy to advise you.
