Tour Details

Check out this Florence market tour for a fun shopping and dining experience. On this Florence walking tour, you will pay a visit to one of the city’s biggest markets to taste local fare like ricotta cheese and cured prosciutto as well as get a closer look into the area’s culture. You’ll also have the opportunity to buy some mouthwatering items to take home. Hungry yet?

Jump right in to the local Florence food scene by checking out typical delicatessens where Florentines do their daily shop for fresh produce. Most of the vendors in the delicatessens are the actual owners of the shops, and they usually specialize in the specific products that they sell, making them the ultimate food experts. For instance, you'll meet Lorenzo at his fabulous food store that specializes in Parmigiano Reggiano, balsamic vinegar, and prosciutto from some of the best areas in Italy.

As if that's not enough, you'll enjoy a cappuccino at the best boutique chocolate shop in town, and, of course, nab a chocolate or two while you're there! And right by the iconic Duomo is the oldest wine cellar in Florence, which you'll be sure to check out.

At the marketplace, you and your small tour group will make your way to the various stands and sample all sorts of Florentine cuisine. Among the delectable items you will taste are cured Tuscan prosciutto sliced by hand, fresh bread, roasted porchetta, and olives direct from the farmer’s home on the Amalfi Coast. Because everything at the market is sold directly by farmers, you will find a lot of great deals throughout the venue. If you’re particularly fond of anything you taste, you can pick some up to take home with you.

Part of the market is indoors. Inside, you will find a plethora of fish, poultry, and handmade pasta that will tease your senses. The final stop during your Florence market walking tour includes a glass of wine or Italian soda, complemented by delicious toasted bread and seasonal toppings. One thing’s for sure: you won’t leave this place hungry.
