Full description
You will meet your guide in the heart of the city and then quietly walk out of the crowd to step into the real Florentine atmosphere! Before crossing the river and discover the “Oltrarno” you will have the first food stop for a mouth-watering sample of cured meat and cheese. Continue walking across the bridge leading into the intimate atmosphere of Santo Spirito for the first beer sample at one of the best Italian craft beer locations in town, but please do not worry if you are not a beer lover, Italian wine or craft sodas will be available at each stop.  During your next food tasting stop you will visit the cutest local bakery shop for a “Cecina” sample: a delicious savory chickpea flour pan cake typical of the Tuscan culinary tradition. After the Cecina tasting you will have the opportunity to taste a very peculiar type of Pizza with its dough prepared without yeast, by using only sourdough that has been carefully prepared by the master pizzaiolo. This wonderful preparation goes perfectly with another Belgian style, but purely Italian-made, beer sample. Carry on and be prepared to stop at the most traditional Florentine Trattoria. This kind of restaurant is family run and serves homemade food on their menu. Your guide will select the day’s special for you and tell you a bit about Florentine food traditions and culture. Also, be ready to share the table with other clients as Italians do in trattorias. This afternoon tour will finish with a unique food and drink pairing: a chocolate cake paring with a stout style beer. Don’t wrinkle your nose if it’s your first time trying this combination: you will be surprised by this amazing experience!
