5 reasons to participate in a Food Tour in Florence

Florence is one of the most beautiful cities in Italy, a real open-air museum, a cradle of art and beauty. Strolling around the Tuscan capital gives you the feeling of having made a step back in time and finding yourself literally immersed in a work of art. In Florence there are so many things to do and see that it certainly takes more than a few days to really get to know it, but there is a way to discover it in a different and authentic way: take part in a food and wine tour. We at Do Eat Better Experience suggest you take part in a food tour in Florence to experience the city in a unique way, discovering its most beautiful corners and tasting the most famous traditional dishes of the city. That’s why we decided to tell you what we think are the 5 main reasons why it’s worth taking part in one of our food tours of the Tuscan capital.

1.  You will taste the best traditional Florentine dishes

Obviously the first reason to participate in one of our food tours is the opportunity to taste some of the best traditional Florentine dishes.

During a walk among the most beautiful and famous attractions of the city, our local guide will accompany you to taste the must have of Tuscan cuisine in the most authentic places of the center.

You will have the opportunity to taste the excellent Tuscan cold cuts and cheeses and pici, but also some of the poorest but tasty traditional dishes. You will discover the unique flavour of pappa al pomodoro and the ancient flavour of ribollita, a country soup made with bread and vegetables.

Those with a sweet tooth will be happy to know that the tour will end with one of the typical Tuscan desserts, the cantucci, crispy biscuits that are served with Vin Santo, a passito wine perfect for desserts.


2.  You will taste some of the most famous wines of Tuscany

In Tuscany every meal is accompanied by the excellent wine of the area.

Our Food Tour in Florence will give you the opportunity to taste a delicious selection to accompany the tastings you will make. Water, wine or beer are included.

During the tour you will taste, among others, the famous Chianti, one of the most famous Tuscan wines that is produced in the areas between the provinces of Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Pisa, Pistoia and Prato.



3. You will discover some of the liveliest restaurants in the city

We thought for you an absolutely unique and fun experience, but above all authentic.

We want, in fact, that our tours remain in your memories and that you can return home satisfied and sure that you have discovered a particular Florence, more real, closer to the daily reality of those who live it every day and not of those who visit it by passing by quickly.

To make this happen, our guides have selected for you some of the best restaurants and eateries in Florence: those frequented also by locals, those where you can feel the Tuscan spirit and cheerfulness on your skin, in short, the places they frequent themselves!

4. Walk around the city with a local guide

As you may have guessed our food tours in Florence are all guided by local people. This will allow you to discover a new city, to get out of the usual tourist routes and to know anecdotes and curiosities that only a local can tell you. It will be a bit like being a guest of friends who want to introduce you to their city with all the love and passion they have.

This, together with the fact that our tours are never composed by more than 10 people, guarantees a familiar and informal atmosphere that always contributes to create funny situations that stimulate the interaction between the participants. In front of a good meal and a good glass of wine it is easier to chat and make new friends!

So, between a glance at the stalls of the most beautiful markets in Florence, a tasty stop and a stop in front of one of the many wonders of the city, you will get to know the Tuscan city and fall in love with it.


5. Spend a few hours among artistic beauties and excellent food

Our tours generally last three and a half hours. During the walk, which will be guided by a local person, you will admire some of the landmarks of the city and learn about its history and curiosities. The itinerary will be interspersed with a series of tasty stops that will allow you to discover some of the best traditional Florentine dishes.
