The foodies at Devour Tours are now operating all Walks food tours. For years their obsession has been in finding the best version of every dish and the biggest characters at the market. We think that singularity makes them the best at what they do.

Tour description

Dine like a Florentine on this authentic food and wine experience.

Our Florence evening food tour provides a full introduction to Tuscan cuisine and wine with a local foodie as your guide. You’ll try wine, small plates, classic dishes, and of course gelato—all sprinkled with fascinating stories and a delightful city stroll.

From starters to gelato, enjoy a full Tuscan meal.

Your evening Florence food and wine tour starts in an easy-to-reach piazza in the Oltrarno neighborhood, a step or two off the well-trod tourist path. Just nearby is our first stop, where you’ll try pecorino toscano cheese, a selection of bruschette, and focaccia, all paired with a glass of Chianti Classico. Your guide will talk you through each bite, explaining how and why some of Italy’s key ingredients differ so much from one end of the boot to the other.

From there, we’ll take a stroll through picturesque Oltrarno, stopping at one of the famous Florentine wine windows for a glass of red or white.

Next up, it’s every Italian’s favorite time of day: aperitivo hour. Visit a local enoteca (wine bar) for a selection of regional charcuterie and another glass of wine.

After that, you’ll stop into one of our favorite trattorias in Florence for an authentic sit-down dinner starring the crown jewel of Tuscan cuisine: bistecca alla fiorentina, or Florentine steak!

Last but certainly not least, you’ll end your meal as the locals do: with a gelato, which was invented right here in Florence.

Dine with a local foodie and small group of 12 or fewer for an unforgettable evening out.

Throughout your Florence evening food tour, you’ll be accompanied by a foodie and storyteller as your guide. They’ll teach you about regional ingredients, seasonality, and why there’s no such thing as “Italian” food. Plus, with a small group, your experience will be relaxed and casual—like an evening out with friends you haven’t met yet.

Quality, quality quality! This is an awesome tour that takes you to the neighborhoods of real Italians, eating and drinking in establishments locally owned and off the beaten path. We had 7 people in our group and it felt so personalized. Food and wine were outstanding. We especially enjoyed our visit to a wine window but each place felt authentic. Such a value with your food and drink included. Highly recommend!

The tour is relaxing, pleasant, makes you discover the essence of living in a genuine district of Florence outside the major tourist circuits but with all the attractions related to food and wine of Tuscany

Chiara was a wonderful tour guide. We enjoyed each place we visited and learned quite a bit about Florence, Chianti wine, and typical Florentine foods. The pace was perfect, and offered a chance to chat with all of the other people on the tour with us.
