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.
