Tour FAQs

What about the food?

We have carefully selected food tastings in partnership with our vendors that reflect the uniqueness of the region and its food scene, and this Florence street food tour is not an a la carte-type setting. These selections may include focaccia, Tuscan cold cuts, coffee and gelato. Vegetarians can be accommodated.

Is this Florence street food tour suitable for kids?

Yes! A food-focused walking tour is an all-time favorite for families. Not only does it offer the chance to try specialty foods from vendors that you may not discover on your own, but also families get to explore some of Florence’s quaint, lesser-traveled neighborhoods. Aside from that our tour isn’t purely a history tour or tasting experience but a mix of both. This means there’s plenty of information to keep our younger guests entertained. Not to mention this is one of our most requested kid-friendly tours in Florence.
