New Food Tour in Florence, Italy


Eating Italy is expanding its portfolio further by launching a new food tour in Florence, Italy. The new tour guides visitors through the neighborhood of Oltrano, the Florentine equivalent of Paris’ left bank.

“We are really proud to be launching in our second Italian city after Rome, and our fifth city in Europe,” says Kenny Dunn, managing director of Eating Europe Tours, the parent company of Eating Italy. “Our company has seen tremendous growth in the past five years from a single tour in a single city to eight food tours in four cities across Europe today. Florence has such a strong culinary influence that we felt it was the next logical step in our expansion in Italy.”

On the “Other side of Florence Food Tour,” guests will taste what makes the city’s cuisine so special and unique within Italy, and meet the families who have been serving up the foodie treasures locals love for generations. Through numerous food and wine tastings at eight authentic stops, participants will learn how to make Italian cantucci (cookies), sample the local salami, and experience the neighborhood’s Bohemian vibe – full of students, artists and lively culture. A glass of Tuscany’s famous wine, Chianti, is also part of the tour as well as one of Italy’s most famous desserts, the gelato.

  1. Thanks for sharing this. I love food tours because they really introduce you to the culture of the people and how they express themselves in the most consumable medium. It’s one thing to tour art and observe it, but touring food makes you part of the experience.
