Tuscany Food Tour – Holidays, Experiences, and Activities for All

Food is one of the many reasons to visit Italy, and if you want to spend your holiday enjoying delicious local cuisine, consider spending your visit in Tuscany. The sunny region is famous not just for its wines, but also for its varied culinary activities and experiences. So, no matter what type of foodie you are, you should be able to enjoy and experience exactly what you want through a Tuscany food tour. Rather than going on your own, consider choosing an organized food tour in Tuscany to avoid the guesswork, especially if it is your first time to go.

A Tuscany food tour can be more enjoyable and memorable when it combined with a wine tour. Consider an itinerary that lets you indulge in delicious food and wines for up to 10 days, so you can visit famous wine estates and discover Italian cuisine from a different perspective. The tour can start in Montalcino or Montepulciano where immediately, you can visit some of Italy’s top wine estates. From there, your tour will proceed to the medieval towns of San Gimignano, Chianti, and Siena, all of which are notable for their amazing food scene and history. Your visit will also include activities to keep you busy while learning something new. These experiences include cheese tasting, oil pressing, and olive oil collecting.

Florence is also an important aspect of a Tuscany food tour. Consider an experience that lets you meet with a personal chef who can deliver a private cooking lesson on how to make a traditional lunch, the Tuscan way. Of course, your tour is incomplete without taking a stroll through the city to explore its beauty, small squares, and amazing architecture.

While in Florence, be sure to try the local pre-dinner drinks (aperitivi), which are typically enjoyed with complementary snacks that may even be worth feasting on than the main course. There are plenty of spots in the city for you to sip and eat in style. Also noteworthy of trying during your Tuscany food tour is ‘bistecca alla fiorentina,’ a chargrilled T-bone steak. You can also consider hunting for truffles near the medieval town of San Miniato, which is situated between Florence and Pisa.
