San Lorenzo Market and City Center Food Tour
Taste the best of the capital of Renaissance!
Florence is the capital of Italian Renaissance, the cradle of the language and the arts. It is also the capital of Tuscany region and center of a great tradition of food and cuisine. Many worldwide famous products come from the area such as the Chianti and Brunello wines, pecorino cheese, Colonnata lard, cantuccini biscuits etc... On this special half-day tour you will enjoy a combination of food, art, history and sightseeing.
We then wend our way toward the Ponte di Rialto, the oldest of Venice’s 400 plus bridges where we will again stop for a bite to eat where the local residents and gondoliers dine. Here you will find something to delight the taste buds; creamy risotto and exquisite pasta dishes that you will not find anywhere else!
For those with a 'sweet tooth' we visit a typical original bakery where you can savour Zaeti, Buranelli and other local specialities. As our leisurely tour progresses you will be able to experience the breath-taking beauty of Venice by night; churches and 'vicoli' take on a different aspect and in the moonlight the canals sparkle like a glass prosecco.
For those who want to learn about the art, culture, history, food and wine of the Jewish Ghetto this tour is a must! Please come with an empty stomach so that you have plenty of room to savour the culinary delights of Venice. And… don’t forget your camera to record the fantastic memories of this truly unforgettable experience!
