Being foodies my wife and decided it would be a good use of our time to go on the food and Nude tour in Florence. I have to say that Sam was outstanding, she did a great job sharing about the history of "David", it was the perfect amount of time in the Museum. The food tour itself was very... More

A delightful introduction to the splendours of Florence. The tour of the Uffizi Gallery was so well done that the art came to life. We then visited a local restaurant for the wine tasting. The selections were well chosen and accompanied by exceptional food. It was a wonderful experience. Highly recommended.

My friend and I did the Food and Nude tour. Mama Natalie was our guide. What a perfect tour! I loved starting off with a focused history lesson on Michelangelo and David. I learned more about Italian history/art in this portion of the tour than I ever thought- it was fascinating! Then we moved on to the eating and drinking... More

Before my third visit to Florence, I contacted Florence For Foodies again, since I was so extremely happy with their tours that I had been taking on my last visits. Nat and Sam responded very fast suggesting a few new tours, Wine Tasting Crash Course with Italy's best sommelier 2014 and a full day Truffle Day in Tucany. Me and... More

This was easily one of the main highlights of our entire trip to Italy. It started with an hour at Accademia with a detailed discussion of Michelangelo's David from a distance and then walking around it getting glimpses of details and insights into the making of it. It was very informative. The last ten minutes was "free time" to take... More

After spending several days in the Tuscan countryside we decided to travel to Florence and get a feel for Italian city-life. We booked the Nude and Food tour hoping to get a bit of historic culture (at the Museum of David) and a crash course on the best of Florentine food. Natalie - our guide - met us outside the... More

Booked this as we love to do a food tour early on a city break to get good recommendations. We did the foods and nudes so got to see the David first. Well recommended as you skip the queues and get a wealth of information to boot. Food stops were plentiful and generous. I know a lot of reviews say... More

My husband, adult daughter and myself went on the Nude and Food tour. It was just the three of us seeing David with our tour guide, Sam. We were then joined by two other couples for a four hour eating tour of the city. I can't say enough how much fun this day is. We had so much fun with... More

Great introduction to Florence food and wonderful detailed tour and description of the David. We learned so much and had a great time. Our guide took us to a tucked away little wine shop run by a handsome, award winning sommelier and to fantastic gelato and sandwich shops. Highly recommended for a fun and interesting tour of Florence.

What could be a better day than viewing the David at the Accademia followed by a food tour with stops for gelato, wine, cheese, meats and sandwiches. The guide, Sam, was excellent, friendly and knowledgeable.
