London, April 26, 2016: Announcement from Eating Europe
Eating Italy is expanding its portfolio further by launching a new food tour in Florence, Tuscany. Taking visitors through the neighborhood of Oltrano, the Florentine equivalent of Paris’ left bank. The Eating Florence tour commenced on April 18.
“We are really proud to be launching in our second Italian city after Rome, and our fifth city in Europe,” says Kenny Dunn, Managing Director of Eating Europe Tours, the parent company of Eating Italy. “Our company has seen tremendous growth in the past five years from a single tour in a single city to eight food tours in four cities across Europe today. Florence has such a strong culinary influence that we felt it was the next logical step in our expansion in Italy.”
On the “Other side of Florence Food Tour”, guests will taste what makes the city’s cuisine so special and unique within Italy. They will also meet the families who have been serving up the foodie treasures locals love for generations.
An Enticing Taste of Florence
The tour includes numerous food and wine tastings at eight authentic stops. Participants will learn how to make Italian cantucci (cookies). In addition, they will sample the local salami, and experience the neighborhood’s Bohemian vibe – full of students, artists and lively culture. A glass of Tuscany’s famous wine, Chianti, is also part of the food tour. Guests also indulge in one of Italy’s most famous desserts, the gelato.
Tours run Monday to Saturday, 10am to 2pm, €84 adults, €72 adolescent, €50 children.
