What you'll do

This is a historical-food and wine route and not just a simple tour among wineshops bingeing on food and wines. This is a unique experience because explains to us what we find on market stalls and on shelves of wine cellars. Food as an expression of a society or of a single historical character.
We start from Piazza della Repubblica, a place that for centuries has been a crossroads of merchants and citizens, we will talk about the Tuscan food tradition of the present and the past, the history of food and how they were consumed in various eras.
Passing by the Old Bridge, the walk ends at the market of Sant'Ambrogio where you will be offered a tasting of local food and wine.
In case the latter is closed, the tasting will be done in alternative place.
Other things to note
Able to walk 4 kms in town.

Where you'll be

First of all we visit the ancient place of the market: Introduction to typical products of the territory and referable to historical characters or events. Then we move on to the New Market Square (better known as the "Piglet"). Then we cross the Old Bridge "seeing" what is no longer visibletoday. We end up with food and wine tasting in a characteristic room or at the local market of Sant'Ambrogio.

This was an excellent tour of Florence. Chiara showed us many things I would not have known to experience myself, and she was very knowledgeable about the city.
