Florence ...the birthplace of the Renaissance. You must discover the artistic and architectural treasures this city holds. Just don't miss the culinary treasures that also deserve your attention.

You are going to have dinner anyway, and you are in Italy, Florence no less. Why not sit down and make some new best friends while you learn how to re-create some of the most distinct Italian beverages and dishes?

Set off as the sun dips over the horizon and discover our favourite eateries and wine bars in Florence. You’ll learn how to make the perfect cocktail, then sip it down at aperitivo o’clock while watching the world go by in Piazza Santo Spirito.

Savour artisanal truffle cheese and cured local meats paired with the perfect local vino. And learn how to cook the perfect Bistecca alla Fiorentina (Florentine style beefsteak) to impress you next dinner guests!

During the evening your local guide will regale you with stories, fascinating history, and a unique glimpse into the best part of Florentine life….the food of course!
