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.

A Recent Review of this tour

We learned so much about the meat, cheese, wine and balsamic of the region. The side by side tastings were delightful and delicious, and the restaurant choice was very enjoyable - thank you Gino and Sylvia!
