    Stop At: Mercato di Sant'Ambrogio, Piazza Lorenzo Ghiberti, 50122, Florence Italy

    Stop At: Piazza della Signoria, 50122, Florence Italy

    After visiting the Market visit we will keep going in direction of the second food stop: a small deli where you can enjoy a popular street food in Florence"Coccoli" (tasty fried pasta filled with cheese and ham!). Then will be the right time to visit "Signoria Square" and "Palazzo Vecchio" which the guide will be happy to explain you why are considered the main points of the florentine republic history. At this point we will bring you to try the most requested finger food plate in Florence: "The Tagliere" (a selection of ham and cheese) that you will enjoy together with a nice glass of Chianti!

    Just after passing by the charming Dome we will reach "San Lorenzo" market where you will have the chance to taste truffles,cantucci (crunchy almond biscuits) and Vin Santo (juicy sweet wine). San Lorenzo , better known as the central market, is the most famous food market in Florence, has 2 split level floors and is plenty of butchers, fishmongers, fruits or vegetables stalls.

    Stop At: Antica Gelateria Fiorentina, Via Faenza, 2a, 50123 Firenze FI, Italy

    Our last stop will be a must during the italian summer: Il Gelato!...Gelato was invented in Florence during the renaissance period when Bernardo Buontalenti created the dessert for the Grand Duke Cosimo De Medici.(At the ice crem shop that we have chosen for you the "Buontalenti" flavour will be available!)
