EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION

Dine like a Florentine on this authentic dinner experience.

In Florence, dinner doesn’t just mean sitting in one restaurant all night – it’s a much more active experience, seeking out the best aperitivo at a local bar, moving on to an enoteca for starters and good wine, settling down at your favorite restaurant for a bite of steak, then finishing it off with gelato and a stroll home. Florentines are notoriously picky eaters so they insist on the best of everything.

That’s exactly what you’ll get on our local Florence food tour, but with a few more stops for wine and nibbles along the way. And since your gastronomic adventure takes place across the city’s quieter, more residential area, your experience will be extra authentic.

From starters to steak, you'll enjoy a full Tuscan meal.

Your tour starts with beautiful views of the Ponte Vecchio as you cross into the foodie & artisan mecca that is the Oltrarno neighborhood. Here you’ll start with cheese, cold cuts and Florence’s answer to focaccia, with tastings of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Your expert guide will talk you through this, explaining how and why these key ingredients differ so much from one end of Italy to the other.

From there it’s a walk through lively Piazza Santo Spirito to every Italian’s favorite time of day – aperitivo hour. Visit a local enoteca (wine bar) for a wine tasting experience, including one of the region’s famous Super Tuscans, and three types of local crostini (bruschetta).

Passing artisan shops along Via Santo Spirito, you’ll stop by our favorite bakery for a snack before a sit-down dinner at an authentic Florentine restaurant. Here you’ll try two typical Tuscan starters plus a succulent bite of the steak that has made Florence famous throughout Europe; bistecca all fiorentina.

End your meal as the Florentines do, with sweet wine and cantuccio before grabbing a gelato (invented here in Florence) for the stroll back to the other side of the city.

Travel with a local guide and small group of just 14 people or fewer.

Throughout your Florence food tour, you’ll be accompanied by an expert (fun) local tour guide, who will teach you about local ingredients, seasonality and why there’s no such thing as “Italian” food. With a small group of just 14 people or fewer, your experience will be relaxed and casual – more like an evening with friends than a tour.

The first stop wasn't set up or ready for us and didn't seem to have the staff to service our group. Maybe they are not concerned with your business arrangement? You may want to bring this up with them or find another place to work with. We still had a great evening, and Anna was great!

Fantastic tour; we really enjoyed it and would do it again! Thank you
Excellent tour and guide really knowledgable and changed tour route due to weather being very oppressive
Wow. Wonderful! Whenever we return to Italy we will certainly use Walks of Italy again, and will recommend to our friends. Thank you for making our trip so memorable!
Amazing experience!! My wife and I truly felt like we were part of a family walking and dining around Florence. At first I didn't thing it would be enough food but by the time you finish it's the perfect amount. Side note: there isn't a full course meal but you will be satisfied.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour! Laura was FANTASTIC! She shared so much information about foods and wines and was an absolute joy to be around. We would and will highly recommend this tour to friends visiting Florence. Thank you!

Julia was a great guide, she was really knowledgable and made sure we had fun - with a great mix of wine tasting, local cheeses and hams followed by an authentic florentine dinner, a thoroughly enjoyable evening
Both were excellent- pass on our appreciation. As never havin previously been to Italy it as a fabulous way to start. Thank you very much John &! Megan
A great evening walk with lovely food and wine. We even went back the next day to purchase more food from the deli which was our first stop-off on the tour. Very knowledgeable and friendly guide Laura!
This tour was one of the highlights of our entire trip. The guide, the food, the wine, it was all superb. We ate SO much and left feeling completely satisfied. We met awesome people on the tour and it was an unforgettable experience.
Our guide was knowledgable and very friendly. We expected a tasting of local food and wine but received a full and delicious meal. Wonderful tour!
Charming guide, fabulous food, great vendors. Was really glad not to be eating a 1kilo T-bone, but to get a nice manageable portion instead. Probably would be good to explain that in the walk description.
Perfect tour. Very good food and the guide was very cheerful, informative and friendly. His English was very good and clear. Highly recommend!
Charles was fantastic! He was extremely knowledgable about Florence and the surrounding area - food, culture, history, he knew it all! This tour was our favorite activity of the entire trip.
I came a few minutes after the tour started, I called Walks of Italy and they contacted their guide. I was able to catch up with the group. I'm so glad I did not miss this fun and informative tour.
Absolutely wonderful! Our guide Ishmael was fantastic as was the food, wine, and history! Would highly recommend!
Ten days traveling around Italy, and this was one of our favorite evenings! Our tour guide, Helena, made it a truly wonderful experience that we will always remember.
Claudia was awesome and filled us in on the local history while walking between food stops. One of the highlights of our stop in Florence.
Very informative and enjoyable - highly recommend!
Charles was awesome, I'd definitely recommend to friends!
Claudia was very entertaining and did a great job on our tour. I would highly recommend this tour to others (and already have!).
A most enjoyable tour. Took us to places as a tourist we would never have visited. Food was great and plenty of it. The tour guide was excellent! Would highly recommend.
Ishmael was fantastic.
The night was great didn't have anything bad to say about it
Very fun tour with lots of good info and great food!
The tour was wonderful - would gladly take another Walks of Italy tour.
excellent experience and guide!
Ismael was a wonderful guide. The food was plentiful and delicious. I would recommend this tour to friends and family visiting Florence
Amazing food and nice chit chat. The perfect way to eat out :)
Loved Anna--very knowledgeable and seemed very passionate about her tour and showing us the best of Florence! Anna is very personable and I can't say enough about what a wonderful evening we had. Grazie mille!
Our half-day adventure with Laura was incredible! Wine and food tasting on market day in Florence - one would expect a good experience, but ours was FABULOUS thanks to Laura's knowledge, experience, and pleasant personality.
Wonderful tour and good wine. Laura made the tour most enjoyable even though we were 30 minutes late due to the public bus driver mid routing us. Laura is very knowledgeable and has a comfortable, friendly way of relating to her tour group. We would recommend this tour.
Excellent. Informative. And fun
The tour was very well organized and the tastings were delicious and generously served!
Our guide was fantastic! Very knowledgeable, very fun and overall, this was a great experience for us. Thank you!
This was one of the best tours we did while in Italy. Our guide was fantastic and took us to some great places. I would do this again in a heartbeat and would recommend it to anyone!
Ishmael was great.
Annamaria was very passionate about food, wine, and the history of Florence. You can tell that she was very much into educating others about life as a local there. Very informative & fun! Not to mention great food & wine!
Ismal was awesome! This tour was a highlight of our trip!
Happened to have Laura again, very good job all around.
Anna was really helpful and fun. No complaints
We loved the tour and would recommend it to everyone!! Pure pleasure.
We thoroughly enjoyed this event. We are not 'tour' types but this is not your typical tour... it is more an education and immersion into Florence food and wine lifestyle. Claudia, our tour leader, was first class and a joy to spend 3 hours. Salute!
Great experience. Ismael was great as well, knowledgable and thoughtful. We really enjoyed the tour itself and the people we met.
This was a fantastic tour give by Julia. She lived in the neiborhoods we visited and knew all the people at the food and wine stops. This was so enjoyable and gave us that local feel and history of the Florentine food and wine. I would give Julie 6 stars if I could. I highly recommend this tour!
Laura was very knowledgeable and we had a lot of fun on the tour. Loved the wine tasting, market experience plus the amazing gelato at end. Would highly recommend. Small group was an added bonus
Laura was so knowledgeable especially about wine ! Her passion was evident throughout. Smiling with each note and bit of information. We also were impressed with the extent of the tour and have since shopped at the spots we learned about!
Excellent day - the markets & food samples were excellent. Wine tastong & information good. Lunch very enjoyable. Our guide was very friendly & well informed & gave us an excellent recommendation for dinner.
Our guide Julia was absolutely fantastic not to mention gorgeous. She was very friendly, informative and lots of fun. I always book Walks of Italy tours whenever I am in Italy and have NEVER been disappointed. Thanks once again for a fantastic morning!
We loved Julia and everything about the tour. There was so much food to taste!! Perhaps a little too much for us. The vendors could reduce some of the portions at the market. This is a fabulous tour for someone to learn about Florence. Thanks!
our guide was absolutely delightful and very knowledgable. i would highly recommend this tour.
Julia was wonderful. Knowledgeable, personable, and friendly. Had a great time with her. Thank you.
Elvira was knowledgeable, personable and energetic, and we learned a lot about local history and fare and had a blast!
Claudia did a great job and my family enjoyed the tour. My only suggestion would be not to start with the wine tasting -- wine at 10 am is not something we're used to and we would have preferred going to the market first.
Our guide was wonderful! We had a great time learning about the city through food. Due to timing, we did this on our last day of our trip. I wish we would have been able to do it on our first because it really helps set you up for your time in Florence.
try to have more space between the meat eating and the pasta eating. a lot of food so close together.
Excellent tour. We loved Claudia. She was personable and very knowledgeable about food and Florence history. We would definitely recommend this tour to our friends. Thanks for making this so memorable for us.
Claudia was simply wonderful; warm, knowledgable and engaging. She was the key to a very enjoyable and rewarding experience.
Fun!!! Fun!!!Fun!!!
Our guide Julia (correct spelling ?) was excellent; relaxed, informative, lovely sense of humour, knowledgable and happily prepared to share her love of Florence. The tour was well paced, well designed. I will recommend to my friends.
By far the highlight of my time in Florence. It was a perfect day.
Another knowledgeable tour guide and had a great time.
The tour was very good. The guide was very good. I would recommend it to a friend.
Teresa was a grat guide and the tour itself was really good - we really enjoyed it - thanks.
Very amazing!! Guide was great- friendly and accommodating.
A must! The information was interesting, the guide was patient to all out questions, and the food was remarkably delicious! The wine tasting, whit the open options was great; the market at the food was delicious and fascinating; and the gelato was a divine experience. Completely recommendable.
Amazing Tour with an amazing guide. Reccomended it to many people already!!
This tour was a blasr. We had a great group and our tour guide was wonderful. Definitely one of my favorite tours that I have done. It was authentic and informational.
great tour
PERFECT! This was so much fun! I am so glad this was a small group. We had a fabulous time!
Laura was an outstanding tour guide. Answered all our questions. Thoroughly enjoyed all the places we visited.
This was an excellent trip. Ismael was the nicest man! We really enjoyed chatting with him, and felt like he was a friend. The stops were perfect, the amount of food sampled was good, and the wine was divine :) We really enjoyed this tour a lot.
Anna was very knowledgeable. She knew what she was doing. She's patient and helpful, especially when we tried to buy meats and cheese at a crowded market. I enjoyed the tour very much and appreciated that there's no pressure to buy from the vendors. And it's definitely is not too touristy.
Ishmael was a fabulous guid - as were all the guides on our trips.We will absolutely book more tours with your company when we return. The tastings were wonderful and I can't thank you and your company enough.Best regards, Beryl Bardsley.
Very friendly good guide.
Laura was WONDERFUL!! She was every informative about the area as well as her tour content!! She was fun, made us laugh, laughed with us and the time passed much to quickly! I would highly recommend your tour company, this tour and Laura. Please thank her again for us.
I thoroughly enjoyed this tour! Laura is an absolute delight, warm, knowledgeable and fun. She is a real credit to your business. I felt the places we went and the food and wine tasted made for a unique insight into local life. I will be giving a rave review on Trip Advisor.
Ismael was wonderful! My mom and I enjoyed the tour immensely and Ismael was such a lovely and informative guide.
Ismail was very informative, and the tour presented a variety of interesting experiences.
A delightful tour and well worth taking the time. We did think having a radio communications system may add to the tour, hard at times to keep up close to hear what was being discussed between stops.
Loved this tour. It should not be missed by any foodie.
We loved the tour and thought Laura was fun, entertaining and knowledgable! I am recommending this tour to my family for their November visit!
Laura is a gem. She really knows her stuff and has a great relationship with the merchants we visited. This was our single best experience during our four day stay in Florence.
Your company arranged this while on another tour! I love Laura! Hope to do more tours before I leave November 1st
I have been in Europe for 3 weeks in 4 countries. Your tour with Ibrahim was my favorite thing yet! Thank you for the great food and great education about Italy!!
Loved this tour! Ismael was a fantastic guide.
Ishmael was a wonderful guide! He provided us with great local history and led us to lovely venues for sampling local wines, cheeses, pastas, and gelato. We highly recommend Ishmael and this tour!
Ishmael was warm, welcoming, and full of information. We really enjoyed this tour - and we are not "tour people."
Guide was exceptional (we also did a museum tour with him) and so was the tour and the food and wine. A real winner. We would recommend it highly
Excellent I enjoyed it throughly .
We really enjoyed the tour. It was a lot of fun and we learnt a lot from Ismael about Chianti and the market food. Just what we needed after visiting museums for the last few days....drinking Chianti at 0930 in the morning with a fun group of people.
Ishmel was so knowledgeable and smart, he clearly had a passion for Florence and the cuisine & history. We really enjoyed the walk! The choice of restaurants and locations was excellent and we had a blast!
We really couldn't have asked for more from Laura she was knowledgeable and engaging 5* guide
Great tour. Takes you behind the scenes to give you a taste of Italy. Suggest wine tasting be moved to a later time perhaps after meats and cheeses. Ishmael is charming
Lovely tour. Wish I could have eaten more of the food, though. We loved the route, even though a wine tasting first thing in the morning can be a challenge for some. Luisa was very knowledgeable and had a very nice personal touch.
Annamaria was wonderful..She did an excellent job and was very helpful too...I would advise my friends to specifically ask for her when they go on the tour.
Our guide Ana was knowledgeable, welcoming and fun. It was an absolute pleasure to walk around and hear her speak. There were so many things to try and she made the experience wonderful!
This was a wonderful, informative tour. Anna was so interesting and just a delightful person to be around. I would love to do another tour with her in the future. I really liked the fact that she was from this area and could give us a glimpse of how local people live.
Wonderful! I learned so much and felt like I got to see and taste the best parts of Florence.
This was an excellent tour. Very informative without being "over the top" with too much detail. The food was all great and a good variety and some nice history and sightseeing along the way. Thanks.
Great guide, great fun
She was terrific,engaged and personable. Very impressed.
The tour was so much fun. Ismeal was very knowledgeable. I love having a small group tour.
The Florence in a day tour was terrific and a great way to see the city and learn about its treasures.
Ismeal and the whole walk about were just what we were looking for. A perfect morning.
I enjoyed this tour which was excellent value for the cost. The guide was articulate & knowledgeable. He responded openly to all queries. Overall - well done.
All four tour guides were excellent, well grounded in history and the culture of the area. Really liked the Florence Food Tour...something different.
Both tours were excellent, and I would recommend them to anyone. The Food Tour was particularly enjoyable, because we learned so much and ended the trip stuffed! The guides were organized, knowledgeable, and fun. Both tours were well worth the money.
smail was FANTASTIC & so was the tour! The food was to die for and the group was just the right size for a tour!!! Keep up the good work!!! Ciao, Margo & Walter
Ismail was FANTASTIC & so was the tour! The food was to die for and the group was just the right size for a tour!!! Keep up the good work!!! C
Ismael was great! Knowledgeable, patient and engaging. We took my mother in a wheelchair so she wouldn't miss out and he could not have been more helpful.
Florence Food Tour was the best!!! Our guide Coral was very personable, very informative and a wonderful person to get to know. It was great getting to know the culture of the food. What a delight. Thank you.
Did the food/wine tasting tour in Florence with Ishmael and the food/wine/pizza-making tour in Rome with Marta. Both guides were awesome and the tours were the two best we had during our stay in Italy.
6/25 or 6/26 Floremce Food tour Tour was womderful..very informative and well planned...I think the whole group enjoyed...I would recommend it to friends...and a I am now interested in the Tuscan Farmhouse experience next year!!! Thanks...Travis
Great tour! Bernardo was full of wonderful stories which made the tour that much more fun. The food venue choices were great, and we were able to go back after the tour to see more for ourselves. Thanks very much!
Ismael was a wonderful tour guide. We learned alot about, and got to taste wine, cheese, prosciutto and olives. The coolest part was trying a salad made with stale bread. It was fabulous! Thanks Ismael!
The Food and Wine tour was a great way to start my stay in Florence. It not only helped me get oriented in the city, but I tried some great food, including things things I wouldn't have normally, and my guide was very knowledgeable and helpful.
We had a fabulous time with Coral. We loved her enthusiasm and attitude. She had a great rapport with the merchants she introduced us to. We loved being introduced to a less touristy neighbourhood. We would highly recommend this tour or any tour with Coral.
What a wonderful way to experience Rome. We so enjoyed the authentic markets and shops. Making the pizzas was so much fun. Joseph was wonderful and we so enjoyed his knowledge.

Laura was the best. We had a fabulous time. I loved the quaintness of the businesses we visited. Definitely a must!
This tour was spectacular as well. The first stop at the cheese/meat store was not prepared for us, but Laura and the owner worked it out. We were in Laura's group that night since we had met her the day prior. The restaurant was top notch and the INCREDIBLE wine store was a highlight. The family owned wine store ......the owner was so gracious in sharing his wine collection with us.
Our guide was great and so was the food and drink...thanks! So glad I went!

A very good tour . The guide provided good information and everything went well. Great guide.
Claudia is an awesome guide who made our night great fun. We were lucky enough to have Claudia the next day for our Sienna and San Gimignano tour as well and we were greeted like old friends. Claudia is considerate, inclusive and knowledgeable. We love Walks of Italy tours and continue to use your company both here in Italy and last year in New York. We also really enjoyed Marco and his food and wine tour in the Jewish area and Trastevere. Thanks Gaia Steve
Enjoyed the tour. May have enjoyed less bread appetizers and some additional variety. Could have had less quantity but more variety
The food tour was wonderful! Our guide was amazing, very knowledgeable and really provided us with a local, authentic taste of Florentine cooking. Till the next event!
your guide was delightful and gave an excellent incite into Florence. I would thoroughly recommend her to friends

This was an amazing experience! The food and wine was excellent and our guide absolutely could not have been better. The whole time we felt like we were being shown around town by an old friend. We would do this tour again if we're ever back in Florence. This is our third tour through Walks of Italy and they have all been great.
Loved our tour gide! She made the entire experience amazing! What a great ambasiter for your wonderful city. By the end of the evening it felt like a dinner out with great friends instead of a tour. Highly recommend!

A great evening walk with lovely food and wine. We even went back the next day to purchase more food from the deli which was our first stop-off on the tour. Very knowledgeable and friendly guide Laura!
We had an excellent tour with Julia. She was fantastic and shared with us the history and information about various neighborhoods during our walk. The food was outstanding and plenty of opportunities to taste the various wines during each stop. The gelato stop was a great way to end the evening. She also took the time to help with translation when we ordered wine for delivery back to the United States. Thanks, Julia.
This was a perfect taste of Florence food and Julia was delightful company. I loved that she lived in the area so that she knew and was known by so many locals, which gave us a real feel of the atmosphere of the area, chatting to store owners and other local people. We were allowed to go into stores to look at merchandise and visited a beautiful courtyard. My only criticism is that I felt we had too many appetisers and then could not fully appreciate the steak meal which I was so looking forward to. And made it look as though I did not like the food, which was just not true and I felt Insulted the wonderful owner (?Fabrizio). He gave us a beautiful history of the place and arranged some lovely music to accompany out meal. I have tried to put a review on Trip Advisor, but am being blocked as I have already reviewed Walks of Italy for another tour within a 3 month window. We have written to Trip Advisor about this.
