Sample a selection of local cured meats, pecorino cheese, and typical crostini with a nice glass of Tuscan wine before reaching the Oltrarno. Here, a lovely wine bar will welcome you with an excellent glass of Chianti served with traditional crostoni.. heavenly!

But the surprises don't end there! Another tasting experience awaits you in the picturesque Santo Spirito Square. Delight your palate with a selection of simple but delicious Florentine baked delicacies, such as cantuccini (almond cookies), focaccia with olive oil and rosemary bread.

Finally, what could be better than some excellent, genuine gelato right by the palace where Buontalenti, a brilliant architect, gourmet and stage designer, is said to have created his artistic and culinary masterpiece for the Medici court: the first true ice cream in history.
