Full description
Get ready to enjoy a truly local Tuscan dinner with an expert guide who will help you learn all about regional traditions and how to eat an authentic Bistecca alla Fiorentina. This is the most typical meal you can enjoy in the city, and your guide will take you to a very special place where the locals like to eat the famous local T-bone. The Florentine T-bone is a cut of beef that comes from an ancient breed of cattle called Chiana. These cattle have been raised in the regions of Tuscany, Umbria, and Lazio for over 2,000 years.

Before tucking into a meal you’ll enjoy a lovely evening stroll from the historical center over the Ponte Santa Trinita to see some iconic views of the Ponte Vecchio, as well as palaces of historical wine-making families who have been producing wine for multiple generations. You'll even see the private home of the Barone Ricasoli, said to be the founder of the Chianti recipe, whose winery has been making Chianti for over 1,000 years.

You’ll later experience the lively atmosphere of Piazza Santo Spirito with its local bars and authentic restaurants. Your guide will share some great places to enjoy pizza and some authentic street food. In addition, you’ll see the Basilica of Santo Spirito, an architectural masterpiece by Brunelleschi. Lastly, arrive at an authentic and welcoming restaurant where you will meet the owner who also runs one of the most reputable butcher stands at the San Lorenzo Central Market. Finally, it’s time to enjoy dinner, which will include Florentine beef steak as well as handmade pasta, wild boar ragu, Chianti, Vino Santo, and biscotti.
