The Florence street food morning tour is a 3/3,5 hr relaxing walking tour around the markets and backstreets of the city center to taste the best local street food. We have designed a tour that combines the culinary experience with history, arts and handicraft. The Streaty street food Florence tour starts from the Sant’Ambrogio market, a real Florentine spot unknown by the tourists, a perfect location to learn about local cuisine and cooking habits. During the Sant’Ambrogio market tour, Streaty guides point out at the seasonal products explaining traditional recipes and engaging with the vendors to discuss the daily products on sale. The market offers many tasty options, such as the classic crostino nero (chicken liver pate), some tasty pecorino cheese and salami coming from the surrounding hills of Tuscany.
As it happens in all tours offered by Streaty, the Florence walking food tour is not just about eating. We offer a comprehensive cultural city experience. Along this tasty walking tour of Florence travellers will also learn about history, traditions and local handicraft.
The Itinerary has been carefully designed in order to make foodies taste the most traditional street food specialties of Florence, such as the fried coccolo with stracchino cheese and the challenging panino al lampredotto, probably the most beloved by the locals. Yes, of course! You will sip some wine too!
Streaty Florence food tour ends in the heart of the city center with a final treat that makes all palates fresh and happy…gelato! Florentines claim to be the inventors of the very first gelato flavor in Italy, the one and only crema buontalenti! Get ready to experience the Italian history through the unforgettable flavors of the streets!

Highly recommended to anyone wanting to understand anything about florentine foods and to get a different feel for the city. Gaia is a superb host!
We had a fantastic private tour with Alice. We went out of comfort zone a bit, but it was all delicious. Highly Recommended!
I was so happy to meet Gaia to experience the market and local food of Florence. A perfect blend of walking and stopping for tastes of food and wine.
Alice showed us a side of Florence we would have never otherwise seen. The food variety, amount and uniqueness made the morning memorable.
