Venture away from the tourists and enjoy an authentic Florentine experience at the local market of Sant’Ambrogio.

You will be delighted to step into the wonderful world of real Florentine street cuisine with delicious samples such as panino al lampredotto, and finer bites like wild fennel pork salami or fried coccoli. Naturally, no food tour is complete without a toast with a glass of wine to enrich your foodie experience!

Ambrogio market is the real local food market, where Florentines enjoy their daily shopping and spend some time socialising with vendors discussing food, recipes, and daily news! The vendors selected for this experience are based off one criterion, they are the same stalls where locals eat or shop.

In this day and age, visitors to Florence want a real and true experience, and this tour aims to deliver just that. The walking tour combines food thrills with a wider cultural experience. In fact, you will also have the chance to learn about the history of the city as you step in and out of the backstreets to some elegant squares.

Your local guide will walk you into some craftwork shops to learn about Tuscan mosaic making and bookbinding. After few bites, sips and discussions, the tour ends in a renowned Florentine gelateria, so you can taste the first ice-cream flavour ever launched in the Italian market, la crema buontalenti!
