What to expect

This gastronomic tour around Sant’Ambrogio neighborhood is designated to make you enjoy the authentic flavors of this city in every bite, enriching it with stories and anecdotes and taking you only in the best places where locals usually go. The journey includes ancient specialties, excellent wines and new flavors in wineries and small restaurants.

The food walking tour will start in one of the most famous wine shops of Santa Croce neighborhood. Your food ambassador will tell you about the varieties of Tuscan wine and the story behind the producer of the wine you will taste, before moving towards around Sant’Ambrogio neighborhood. This neighborhood is truly loved by locals and is the culinary and cultural heart of the city. You will visit a local bakery and taste some Tuscan bread, known as “pane sciocco” (a particular kind of bread without salt) and during the lunch food tour only, you will visit the market of Sant’Ambrogio (closed at night), where local producers sell their products.

One of the next stops along the tour will be a family-run restaurant, where you will feel the Italian hospitality and taste two samples of home-made pasta with two different sauces paired with some great wines. During the tour you will also have the possibility to sample local cold cuts and cheeses, crostini and the famous “lampredotto”.

The tour will end with a taste of artisanal ice cream in one of the most renowned “gelaterie” of Florence.
