Lorenzo Mercato Centrale Food Lovers Tour

This 2 hour San Lorenzo tour features sampling roast pork, browsing the grower’s market, watching the professionals at Paste Fresca’s create fresh pasta (and sampling it too), we finish with decadent chocolates at Christian Beduschi’s Chocolate and Gelato Stand.



We’ll meet in the heart of San Lorenzo in front of its Basilica that faces the ancient medieval market of Piazza San Lorenzo.

Arrive at the indoor market of San Lorenzo for a stop at a local stand selling typical Tuscan street food to taste roast pork panino known as ‘porchetta’ with a glass of red wine.

Continue on to see the grower’s market area including the butchers and fishmongers. Taste freshly baked Biscotti served with a taste of vin santo.

Arrive at the Paste Fresca stand owners Federico and Nicola’s passion for making pasta came from their grandparents. You can see the machines making fresh pasta prepared daily for top restaurants in Florence and for locals. Enjoy the local ravioli with spinach and ricotta and Parmigiano. Sip on a glass of Italian craft beer. We have an excellent selection of craft beer in Italy due to the top ingredients of malt, barley and spelt.

Arrive at the top floor of the Mercato Centrale to see a celebration of gourmet regional, national and international stands. We’ll enjoy chocolates at Christian Beduschi’s Chocolate and Gelato Stand.

To end our visit we’ll stop by Carmelo Pannocchietti’s stand of Sicilian specialties to taste fresh cannoli.
