Food


This tour takes you on a walk around Florence visiting traditional & historical locations. Our first stop is at a historical bar for a coffee and typical pastry. We will then visit a delicatessen founded in 1885 for a gourmet panino accompanied by a glass of prosecco. From here, we visit an iconic trattoria that uses a 118-year-old wood-fired oven where we will taste two traditional Tuscan dishes accompanied by a glass of Chianti. Then we’ll learn about the favourite street-food of all Florentines before enjoying traditional cantuccini biscotti with a small glass of vin santo. We will then finish off our tour with gelato from a gelateria that has been attracting local Florentines since 1939 with its traditional techniques and recipe!

I always love discovering new fashion brands and so you can imagine my delight when I was recently introduced to a beautiful new Florentine brand called @pavonefirenze.

Founded in 2019 by Creative Directors Angela Testani and Massimo Brilli, PAVóNE FIRENZE is a women’s shoe and accessory collection, designed and created in Florence.
