Today meet your guide at the meeting point and start your walking tour!
The tour begins from Santa Maria Novella Square where you will admire the astonishing Romanesque façade of the imposing church. Then proceed towards the core of Florence wine and food culture: the colorful and lively San Lorenzo Market. Along the way, learn how vineyards dominated the area centuries ago and discover how the eno-gastronomic aspect of the cradle of Renaissance is intrinsic to Florentines’everyday life and heritage through the eyes of a passionate local guide.
Once arrived at San Lorenzo Market, breath in the atmosphere of this unique food market where you can get any kind of fresh ingredients directly from the producers: taste the typical “cantuccini” (the most famous dessert biscuits of our region) and do not forget to dip them into “vinsanto” sweet wine! Discover all the secrets behind the construction of San Lorenzo Church and Duomo Cathedral, and learn why so many historical buildings have small windows on their walls…the so-called wine portals (buchette del vino) unique to Florentine architecture. An observant visitor on a walk through Florence can find dozens of these small, once useful, doors…your guide will reveal you how they were used in the past before joining a second food and wine tasting in a picturesque “Vinaino” shop…taste the best cold-cuts of our region (salame, finocchiona and prosciutto together with Pecorino cheese) along with the world-known Chianti red wine.
Heading to our last tasty stop, the local guide will tell you some interesting facts about the most famous families of Florentine wine producers, that is to say Antinori and Frescobaldi, while strolling through the historic centre of the city, admiring such masterpieces as Orsanmichele Church and Signoria Square. This gourmet quest ends with a taste of 2 mouth watering "poor" dishes belonging to Florentine culinary tradition such as "Pappa al pomodoro" and "Ribollita", both made with Tuscan bread and with peasant origins. An incredible mix of art and culinary tradition for all tastes!
