Wake up and taste Florence!
"Life is too short to eat and drink badly". I read this quote somewhere and I absolutely loved it. It has now become one of my mottos! It is my own personal philosophy that, simply, food is art. It goes without saying that Italian food, and especially Tuscan food, is some of the best in the world, if not THE best.
So what makes Tuscan food the best in the world? It is hard to believe how much history there is behind your plate of tagliatelle al ragu, your bistecca alla fiorentina, or even that glass of wine.
We will step off the beaten tourist path to see the Oltrarno, literally "Over the Arno" or across the river from Florence's main piazzas and museums. The Oltrarno is a lovely, quiet, and more "authentic" Florentine neighborhood with just as much history, art, and yes, good food as the main center of the city. In the Oltrarno, I will take you to different food tastings as we explore and experience this beautiful quarter of Florence.
Meet the locals while you eat like the locals!
