Go for something different: relax and enjoy the perfect taste of these faboulous Italian food


You do not need to travel further up north to enjoy a relaxing food tour of both Italian regions: Emilia Romagna and Tuscany.
We meet at 10. 00 and go directly to San Lorenzo food market, I will explain you all the wonderful ingredients Florence vendors sell at the market.
We will then leave the market and walk straight to my favorite place. I will explain you extra virgin olive oil and we will pair it with a bruschetta. Right after you will taste a 30 months and a 36 months old Parmesan cheese served with real Balsamic Vinegar. Everything will be served with a glas of Chianti wine.
