What you'll do

Have you ever been on one of those really bad bar crawls while traveling to a new city? I’m talking about awful drinks, sketchy people in even sketchier locations? Well, fortunately this will not be one of those tours. Instead we will head to some of my favorite spots in the city for a proper cocktail with even better company. After aperitivo drinks and Tuscan snacks at my home (with a view of course), we will walk to one of the best bars in the country, sampling unique and innovative drinks that are as exciting as anywhere in the world. After, we will make our way to Florence’s newest bar that showcases rare spirits and liqueurs native to Italy. For our final stop we will head across the river into the very local Santo Spirito neighborhood in search of the city’s first hidden speakeasy.
Other things to note
Dress as if you were going to a nicer restaurant/bar, but make sure you're comfortable enough to do a good deal of walking.

I am a food and drink lover that has been working in the hospitality industry for the last four years. My true passion in life is traveling the world, making friends wherever I go, always in search of the best local restaurants and bars. While living in Florence, I have befriended an amazing group of bartenders who not only make great cocktails, but also share my passion for all things delicious.

Where you'll be

After meeting at my house in Piazza dei Ciompi, we will head to the city center to meet my friend Matteo who will whip up some of the best cocktails in the city for us. After a few bars, drinks and plenty of laughs, we will finish up at a hidden bar across the river, just remember to speak easy....

This experience offered a really nice opportunity to mix with other travellers and enjoy a fun evening together. The bars Thomas selected had a really cool vibe about them and were ones I would have never found on my own.

We had a great time with Thomas and the others on this tour. After lots of wine drinking it was fun to go to some unique places that served cocktails, especially places you’d never knew existed in Florence without a guide or tons of research. Thomas definitely knew his way around the town and has developed some good relationships with the bartenders around Florence so you get treated to some amazing and unique drinks, great service and a few extra surprises. Definitely would do this again.

Thomas knows Florence inside and out! He showed us some great bars that we never would have otherwise found, including a speakeasy hidden behind a secret wall! Great recommendations and great conversation. Don’t miss out on Thomas’ tour of the many sides of Florence!
