Food tour review: I've been to Florence numerous times and I've visited all the museums so I was on the hunt for something a little different this time around. This day tour hit the mark exactly, showing me a different side to Florence that I hadn't actually seen before. Firstly, we went on a walking tour of the city. For all the first-timers, she made sure to point out all the famous landmarks and museums, and then instead of going in, we talked about their history and architecture from the outside. It wasn't all the regular things I already knew, but interesting and new facts. Then we went to the central market which was my favorite part. We went around all the stalls, trying a bit of everything. Lastly, our guide took us to a cool rooftop at sunset and we enjoyed drinks and snacks while we sat taking in the view. The whole day kind of felt like we were Florence locals!
