Vegan and Vegetarian Food Tour in Florence

Tour Details


A vegan and vegetarian food tour in Florence? YES, IT’S POSSIBLE! Actually, it’s a must if you want combine your passion for history and food. Feel the beat of the local streets, taste charming off-the-radar eats. Furthermore, stroll through the historical heart of Sant’Ambrogio, one of the most genuine and “Florentine” neighborhoods of the city.
We start with a traditional Italian style breakfast at a local cafe. Forget about American coffee. In fact, here you will taste a pure Italian espresso with a delicious pastry with no dairy products. The best way to perk up and start the day caffeinated! Then our visit heads to Sant’Ambrogio market, an historical market built in 1873 after the destruction of the main city market in Piazza della Repubblica. Are you looking for a Veg Food Tour but still want to see Florence highlights? Not a problem! Fantastic Florence tours are all private and completely customizable, so don’t hesitate to contact us in order to create your own tour with us!


The Loggia dei Ciompi is a beautiful Renaissance loggia used to house the fish market. Unfortunately, it was dismantled in the XIX century and later rebuilt in Piazza dei Ciompi. It is the real heart of this district. We join art and food in Florence. We visit the ancient Church of Sant’Ambrogio, dating back to the Xth century. It is famous for the Eucharist’s Miracle of Florence (a priest in 1230 left some wine in the chalice he used for Mass and the day after he found the wine transformed into real blood). Moreover, we see the marvelous Synagogue of Florence from the outside, another fundamental institution of the district. A visit inside is also possible on request. In the market we try the most traditional food of Florenceschiacciata (our focaccia), pizzacecina (a kind of fresh focaccia made with chickpeas’ flour), caponata di verdure (stewed vegetables), and pasta e fagioli (pasta with beans, so good!). We also try some heavenly traditional food at a local eatery close to Signoria Square.


However, our vegan and vegetarian food tour in Florence is not over yet. We also have a wine tasting, to toast with some biodynamic wine of Italy (with a vegan certification) and try a delicious sandwich.
The last stop is at a local chocolate producer, where we have a chocolate and gelato tasting. We also discover all the secrets of gelato and good chocolate. Did you know that gelato was invented in Florence by the architect Bernardo Buontalenti?
During the tour I also give you tips on where to eat in the best vegan and vegetarian restaurants of Florence.
Most people who take this tour won’t be hungry afterwards….!!
