Piazza Della Signoria

Begin your foodie adventure in Piazza della Signoria, one of the best piazzas in Florence. Widely known as an outdoor art gallery, Piazza della Signoria is home to many sculptures and art vendors. Here, you will be able to spot Palazzo Vecchio, a beautiful palace dating back to the time of the Medici family. You can also spot a copy of Michelangelo’s David here. Your guide will introduce you to the Florence foodie scene, and off you go.

Traditional Florentine Food and Wine

On your first stop,  visit Via dei Neri, a Florentine known specifically for its food. The street is lined with dozens of panino shops, all with freshly cured meats and delicious cheeses. During lunch time, this street is filled with hungry travelers and Florentines waiting for a good meal. Stop at a local shop for aperitivo, meaning a quick bite before dinner time. Taste some lampredotto, bruschetta and local samples of meats and cheeses. Wash it all down with some delicious vino.

Ponte Vecchio Bridge

Walk toward the Arno River and see Florence’s most famous and colorful bridge. The Ponte Vecchio centuries ago used to be the hot spot for fishmongers, butchers and the like to barter and sell their goods. Now, you’ll find the bridge lined mainly with jewelers. Cross over the bridge to access to Oltrarno area, a neighborhood more populated with locals than tourists.

Tuscan Wine Tasting and Truffles

A trip to Tuscany is not complete without some fine wine. At a local wine shop, taste delicious pairings of wine and truffle crostini. And if you like what you’re tasting, feel free to buy a bottle to share with your family and friends at home.

Piazza Santo Spirito

Get a glimpse of another one of Florence’s quaint piazzas before your next stop. Piazza Santo Spirito is a hub of local Florentine culture. During the day, you can catch local markets or musicians performing in this area. This side of the Arno is home to some of the best bakeries in Florence.

Old-Style Italian Bakery

Stop at a small local bakery for a taste of the delicious cuisine of the neighborhood. You’ll try some delicious breads and baked goods. Don’t worry, you will even be able to take a goodie bag of biscotti home for later.

Pasta and Florentine Steak

Now, the main event. Sit down to a delicious dinner that will top off your entire Florence food tour experience. In a serene trattoria, enjoy a mouth-watering dinner starting out with your primi piatti, a plate of pasta. Then, enjoy a savory plate of Florentine steak, a juicy and tender cut of beef. It’s served rather rare, but not to worry, it’s delicious.

The Best Gelato in Florence

You can’t finish a proper Italian meal without some dessert. Try the local flavors from a nearby shop. Buono appetito!

Fabulous start to our Florence vacation

On our first evening in Florence we took this Tour with guide Rubina. Our group of 2 couples were the only ones on the tour and she did a wonderful job of showing us around.....giving great background and history as we walked. The tastings were all yummy, our friends made a Chanti purchase and had it shipped back to the States. The dinner of Florentine steak and pasta was to die for! Probably one of the best pasta dishes we had on our Italy trip. And as a bonus....she gave us great ideas for a day in the Chianti region! We would recommend this tour to friends and family! Loved the small group and relaxed pace!

Florence Food Tour at night with Steak Florentine

This was a fun tour with a nice small group. Our guide, Ruby, was quite knowledgeable about the food & wine we received as well as many facts about the history of the city. The Steak Florentine dinner was a small sample size, but there was enough food in total to fill us up with all the other testings. We really enjoyed this tour during our short stay in Florence. Thank you Ruby!!!

Great Evening

For our first trip to Italy, my wife and I started in Rome and then Sorrento and in both cities, the number of restaurants was overwhelming with no reliable way to separate the "touristy" restaurants from real food the locals eat. Thankfully in Florence, we had a scheduled food tour with The Roman Guy on our very first night there. What a treat. Our guide/host Elisa was fantastic. She is friendly, understands the local cuisine and took us to quite a few "real" food places, and we finally felt like we were experiencing authentic Italian food--it certainly tasted great. We enjoyed one of the restaurants so much, we went back the very next night. Worth every cent--highly recommend doing this and wish we'd done the exact same thing on our first nights in Rome and Sorrento. Next visit to Italy, we'll definitely book another tour with the Roman Guy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where to meet?

Piazza della Signoria - in the center of the square, near the Equestrian statue of Cosimo I (a man on a horse). A representative will be there holding a sign with our company name on it.

What to bring?

This is a leisurely walking tour, so make sure you wear comfortable shoes. Come hungry!

Q: Is Florentine steak always served?

A: If only three (or less) people end up on your tour, we might end up serving tagliata instead of Florentina steak. Tagliata is a juice & thick cut of beef that is grilled, then carved. Simple and delicious.

 

Q: First things first, how much wine do we actually get?

 

A: We promise at least 3 glasses, but in many places, it is served by the carafe which is the typical family style way in Rome. In this case, you can probably drink more, but don't overdo it!

 

Q: What if I have food allergies, intolerances or other requirements?

 

A: Please contact us in advance so we can do our best to accommodate your needs. 

 

Q: Can I bring my kids and do I have to pay for them?

 

A: If your child is under 6 years of age and will not be eating during the tour, you do not need to pay for them. If they will be eating please pay. the youth seat.

 

Q: Do the tasting stops on this tour ever change?

 

A: Stops and tastings on this tour are subject to change due to seasonal/holiday venue closures. As the places we frequent on this Rome Food Tour are local institutions and family-run businesses, they can close at any time with very little to no notice. In this situation, your guide will take you to another nearby eatery. If you have any doubts about your mobility, we recommend you take a Wine Day in the Chianti Hills from Florence or aPrivate Florence Walking Tour.
