A Recent Review of this tour

We combined Taste of Florence Tour with the Florence Full Day Tour. The food tour included a visit to a local market that yielded numerous fresh fruits, breads, meats and cheeses. Elena provided a descriptions of different foods, their preparation and cultural significance in the past and present. She provided a manageable, personalized, fun, delicious and memorable introduction to many of the riches of Florence. I highly recommend her tours!
