Aperitivo Tour in Florence: Wine, Snacks and Craft Cocktails

Savor Italy's tradition of Aperitivo with finger food and a range of drinks (bubbly to craft cocktails) at some of the most exclusive lounges and locales in Florence. We'll imbibe in a variety of drinks traditionally consumed during Aperitivo time on this unique tour including prosecco, wine and craft cocktails. Aperitivo is considered the "Italian happy hour" but you'll learn on our tour that it means much more! Experience Italian craft cocktail culture and dwell at bars where cutting-edge mixologists toil ardently crafting their own bitters, mixers and vermouth, putting most mixed drinks to rest. This unique food and drink tour visits Florence’s classiest locales, with drinks and appetizer snacks all paired. Prosecco, truffles, quite possibly the best Negroni in town, artisan cured salami and Italian cheeses to name a few! On this unique tour in Florence, we casually saunter through the colorful backstreets which are a feast also for the eyes. Taste the culture of Italian "Aperitivo" on this leisurely, food and drink tour with style.
