Florence Aperitivo Time: Let's go out for Drinks and Food

1. Florence Aperitivo Time: Let's go out for Drinks and Food

Upon meeting your local guide, you’ll take a stroll through the city, chatting about national and local aperitivo traditions. Your first stop will be a typical wine bar that serves tripe, the most well-known street food in Florence. If you are game you can have a taste in the form of a small petite panino. A tasting of pecorino from southern Tuscany, Tuscan prosciutto, and local foccacia bread called schiacciata will be served next, street food-style, alongside your first glass of traditional Chianti.  Up next, you’ll take a stroll along one of the city’s most beautiful streets and indulge in a spot of window shopping as you gaze at sumptuous displays of Italian fashion. You’ll arrive at a historic wine bar that’s owned by a family who have been making wine for thirty generations. Here, you’ll taste a full-bodied super Tuscan red and soak up the old world atmosphere. We’ll then take you to the secret palace drive-through that used to sell wine in a similar fashion to the way burger chains sell their wares now.  The last but certainly not least stop is at a local cocktail bar where you will meet professional Florentine mixologists who really know their stuff when it comes to mixing a killer blend. Choose from a selection of classic Italian cocktails, and your guide (who is an expert on all things wine and gin) will fill you in on local stories related to the bar’s vast cocktail selection. More local snacks will be served, paired perfectly with your choice of drink, of course.  After a fun-filled crash course in Italian aperitivo, hopefully you will feel ready to try it on your own. Your tour will end with a stroll back to the meeting point but before you head off, don’t forget to ask your local guide for more tips on what else to see, do, and eat during your time in Florence.

Highly recommended!

Despite the low number (3 people) the tour took place. The Guide Manolo was extremely friendly and motivated. With a few insider tips, he helped us to find good restaurants and nice excursion destinations. The aperitivo with all you can eat buffet was very tasty you can hardly imagine a better start in Florence!

Very pleasant evening. Guide (Paula) good, nice and professional.

Wonderful experience in the company of a very nice Australian couple. Paula, the guide, was exceptional and joined the small group with professionalism and sympathy. Impeccable local aperitif and satisfactory consistency. Definitely to be recommended and repeated for other destinations. Thanks.

The tour was amazing. Received very information about the local area and Maria gave us details on the different wines and regions for all the food. She was accomodating and added extras as and when we asked for them. Would highly recommend

Amusing city tour

Our guide was incredibly enthusiastic and staked us out with it. A relaxed tour in a good atmosphere. The restaurant with the buffet was very narrow and the food was only refilled for a short time - it remained at 1 plate

it was great to hear all the history and see all these places plus food
