Florence is a charming and international city, very representative of the richness of the Italian culture, especially in terms of gastronomy. As tourism continues to grow it can be difficult to find authentic and quality food. Our mission is to show you the places where locals meet and eat, as well as the area's secret streets and monuments. You'll eat and drink like a true Florentine, and understand the history of the most amazing city in Italy.
We're avid Tuscan food advocates, and we've made it our goal to introduce visitors to the real Florence. Since our small crew resides in the city, we'll be sharing with you our local knowledge of our food culture, based on the use of simple but quality ingredients, as well as the latest gastronomic trends.
Our team of Florentine guides will take you to eateries and shops that are beloved by the area's locals, so we know you'll love them, too. They'll also share great tips for the rest of your trip, so from now on you know how to taste Florence.
Chiara travelled, worked, studied in South Africa, but she couldn't help but come back to her roots. After discovering the diversity of the international food scene, Florence represents for her what she loves the most: good wine, tasty foods, culture, and history. The tour she'll show you includes the places she goes with her friends and family. She loves to find new shops, flavours, and stories in every corner of her city. She'll be your new friend here in Florence, sharing her passion and pride, helping you appreciate Tuscan and Florentine food like a local. She's been working as tour guide for 13 years and is very passionate and knowledgeable about history and food.
Our tours are small and intimate to make sure that our guests receive a personalized experience.
