What you'll do?

The itinerant menu starts with a glass of wine and the typical crostino, a starter that is always present in every Tuscan meal. The tasting takes place in Santa Croce neighborhood, in a winery very popular among locals and perfect to get to know the variety of local wines. The itinerary goes on in Sant’Ambrogio district at the local market where you can have samples of local cheeses and Tuscan cold cuts, like the finocchiona – a typical Tuscan cured meat flavored with fennel seeds. During the walk you can not miss samples of freshly baked products from local bakeries, such as the cecina or pane sciocco. The main dish of the lunch is tasted in a family-run restaurant, where you can find only fresh and hand-made pasta. The tasting includes two different types of pasta paired with great wine. Let yourself be conquered by the genuine flavor of the Florentine specialities within a path designed to savor the most representative dishes of the city and sip the best local wines. The best way to end a walking menu is by stopping at one of the oldest gelato shops in Florence, which has been around for almost 90 years.
