We loved this experience - we arrived a bit late but it was no issue. We also didn’t need to meet anyone for a ticket nor show any proof of purchase (a little disconcerting but it’s ok). The man who gave us our wine was knowledgable and friendly. Overall a lovely place to have a few glasses of wine. We did buy a bottle of our favourite from the tasting and again a little disconcerting that it’s much cheaper online. But ‘when in Rome’ as they say. The place itself it quaint, unassuming and quite cute. Filled with travellers and locals alike so it’s a real capture of the essence of Florence. Would go back again however probably book directly through the wine bar as it was cheaper

Amazing & Fun Wine Tasting!

The place was difficult to find so make sure you plan ahead, use the address given, and map out your directions in advance. The way the streets of Florence are laid it, it felt like it took forever. The event was definitely worth it though. The sommelier made the evening tasty and educational. I would do it again if /when in Florence, Yes!

We had a great time at Enoteca Elessa. True value for our money. Our host was knowledgeable, patient, and gave the best guidance on how to get the best out of food as well as wines. The tasting covered wine as well as olive oil.
