Start with a tasting of 2 types of Italian coffee at a typical bar close to Michelangelo’s statue of David in Piazza della Signoria. Next, your guide will introduce you to the typical delicacy of a panino tartufato, a small sandwich served at one of the most respected delis in Florence. Learn about the Florentine passion for truffles, before going to one of the city’s most popular markets.
