      Florentine food history

      Food has always played an integral part in the Florentine identity, and the city’s culture can truly be understood through its culinary heritage. In recent years, more and more Michelin-starred dining spots have sprung up, often overshadowing some of the best restaurants in Florence – the mom-and-pop trattorias loved by locals. Food tours in Florence with local guides can be the best way to discover the true culinary heritage of the city that, at its heart, remains a hub of traditional Tuscan cuisine, famous for signature dishes like ribollita soup and bistecca Fiorentina T-bone steak.

      A taste of Tuscany

      Tuscan heritage is celebrated throughout the city, from the best restaurants in Florence to the street food stalls in bustling squares and boulevards. Food tours here all inevitably lead to the famous Sant'Ambrogio Market, a 150-year-old indoor market in the “gourmet ghetto” of the city. Whether you hop between restaurants in Florence, sample street eats like schiacciata – a flatbread covered in salt and oil – or try something a little more adventurous like a lampredotto sandwich (boiled cow’s intestine), the flavors of Tuscan food tours are surprisingly delicate and delicious.

      The icing on the cake

      Tuscany is well-known for being Italy’s most famous wine-producing region, with its full-bodied reds and crisp whites always a major feature in food tours of restaurants in Florence. If you’re looking for something sweet on your Tuscan tasting, the uniquely flavored dessert wine, visanto, ends a meal as beautifully as any cake or tart could. Aside from being famous for wine, Florence is also home to some of the best gelato in Italy. Instead of reaching for the dessert menu after a meal at one of the best restaurants in Florence, why not grab a creamy gelato at one of the city’s famous small-batch gelaterias?

        We had a wonderful time. His Marco showed us quite a bit. We were surprised that it was a private tour, but it made things more intimate and nice.

        It was a lovely day and a great experience! The guest was polite, open minded, curios and very kind. It was Lesley's first day here in Florence so I think that our tour really helped to jump-start her trip! We walked and talked a lot seeing all the important places from streets that tourists usually don't know about. I gave her all the best tips, based on her preferences, for the rest of her trip so that she can enjoy Florence as much as possible.
