Food Tours in Florence

La Bistecca Fiorentina may be one of the most well-known meat dishes in the world. Discover the very best steak in Florence and let our guide take you on a magnificent walking tour to sample true Florentine delicacies that you would not discover on your own (especially the cheese!). Florence food tours can be paired with wine tastings, just let us know your preference. We recommend taking an evening food tour before dinner.

Food Tours in Venice

To eat like a local, we highly recommend taking a cicchetti tour when in Venice. Cicchetti are small plates, similar to tapas in Spain, that Venetians usually share with friends at lunchtime or before dinner at bàcari, local Venice cafès that are sprinkled all over the city. The plates are usually variations of bite-sized crostini, small sandwiches, marinated vegetables or fried seafood. Learn about the history behind this tradition and sample delicious bites in true Venetian style. Almost always served alongside a glass of refreshing local wine.

Food Tours in Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast

Lemons, limoncello and delizie al limone are just the beginning. Take a food tour in Sorrento to learn about local fritti appetizers, deserts, and main pasta dishes, from Gnocchi alla Sorrentina and Ravioli alla Caprese, to Pasta Nerano and Scialatielli alle Vongole. Expert local guides will highlight their favorite places to eat, as well as take you to sample some of the very best olive oil and limoncello in Sorrento. If your stay includes a visit to the Amalfi Coast, just let us know and we will organize a private limoncello tasting in a family-run factory in the heart of the city of Amalfi.
