PRIVATE TOUR – Street food and wine among the “buchette del vino” in Florence

Florence, as the birthplace of the Renaissance, is worldwide known for its foodie excellences! Explore its historical centre getting in touch with its traditions of wine selling at one’s home and enjoying some halts to taste some local products!

Meeting with a private licensed tour guide for an original tour built around some city historical and traditional shops as well as San Lorenzo’s food market, where it is still possible to breathe and live an authentic Florentine food experience. The tour will include a sort of treasure hunt aimed to search the so-called “buchette del vino”, i.e. small arched windows where, long time ago, people could easily buy a glass or a flask of wine. You will have the occasion to learn about some ancient Florentine families who had ordered to carve them in the façades of their palaces.

All those “spots” of history, art and culture will be alternated with some special tastings: a glass of Chianti red wine with the typical Italian Bruschetta, a thick slice of bread seasoned with some drops of 100% Tuscan extra virgin olive oil, local salami (Lampredotto), ham and cheese, a take-away warm “Pappa al Pomodoro” or Ribollita soup and some typical Cantuccini biscuits to dip into Vin Santo sweet wine!
