Don’t be fooled by the copy cats – Taste Florence is the original and BEST Florence food & wine tour! Toni has spent years building her relationships with the restaurant owners & market vendors and this effort shows. This was our third tour with Toni and it was just as unique and delicious as the first and second tours – we visited many new, quaint, wonderful places that we had not seen before.
We started out the day at a wonderful pasticceria for a pear & ricotta Sfoglia which was delicious and provided a good dose of energy! Then off to Mercato San’t Ambrogi for some meats & cheeses and olives and other yummy stuff. We then visited a tiny little sandwich shop for a variety of crostinis and a nice white wine, then to the Central Market, and on and on it went! The highlight for us is always the chocolate shop, Vestri. We loaded up on goodies to bring home with us.
During the entire tour Toni gave us details and tidbits about the city of Florence and the food and wine history of the Tuscan region and Italy in general. There is just so much to learn and Toni makes it interesting AND delicious. Along the way and at every stop it was clear that the vendors were delighted to see her and us. We were treated like family at every stop. We finished the tour completely satisfied.
We know we will be back for more as soon as we can!
Taste Florence is a MUST do during your visit!
