Florence wine tours and foodie expeditions are some of the most sought-after activities in the city, the allure being the famed Italian wine and gastronomy. However, instead of your favorite pizza, Italy will welcome you with an ice-cold bucket of reality: there is no such thing as Italian food! Don’t worry though, this twist of perception is a well-disguised gateway to more delicious and tasty treats.
In Italy, there is only regional food, and each type is different from the next. Florence food specialties are built on the simplicity of using seasonal local produce. If you don’t feel confident enough to explore regional cuisine on your own, catch one of the many Florence food tours.
