Dine Around Florence: An Authentic Evening Food and Wine Experience

On this authentic experience you’ll eat like a local on a restaurant-and-bar-hopping dine around, devouring a full meal including starters, local soup, first course, second course and dessert! Oh and the wine of course, explore wine cellars and get to taste either a Super Tuscan wine or a chianti. There will be many other surprises for your taste buds as you learn about the Tuscan cuisine.

In Florence, dinner isn’t just another meal, it’s a night-long symphony of food, flavors, and good friends. A celebration of regional cuisine and the flavors that make it unique. It’s not hard to find good food in Florence, but if you really want to eat as the Florentines do you need to come along with one of our local expert foodies to visit wine bars, restaurants, gelaterias, and more. For a culinary experience that introduces you to the very best of the city.

You’ll start at a tiny corner bar on a quiet street in the Oltrarno neighborhood. It’s here where you’ll get a crash course in Tuscan cuisine in the form of regional cheese, bruschette, focaccia, and Chianti Classico wine.

From there, you’ll make a quick stop at one of Florence’s famous wine windows to sip a glass of red or white.

After this little warm up, you'll stop at another locally loved wine bar for an aperitivo of Tuscan cold cuts washed down with another regional wine. Now you're ready for dinner. Sit down at a trattoria to try the legendary bistecca alla fiorentina, or Florentine steak. One bite and you’ll immediately understand the city’s famous love for meat.

Finally, since you're in the birthplace of gelato, it would be practically criminal not to try Italy’s favourite frozen treat! You'll take a quick stroll to one of the city's most beloved gelaterias for a cup or a cone of your favorite flavor, made with organic regional ingredients.
