New Years Eve Aperitivo Food & Wine Crawl in Florence

CuriousAppetite_tour1__15.JPG

 Aperitivo in Italy is- in part- the social ritual of getting together after work, before dinner (or before lunch) and partaking in an aperitif drink (like a prosecco, spritz, negroni, light wine, even alcohol-free bitter aperitifs, etc) along with small appetizer bites in local bars or at home.

Our aperitivo crawl is unique since we basically imbibe in what feels like 3 aperitivi as we progressively snack and drink at 3 local-loved stops but all with a complimentary range of traditional beverages and pairings, which fit in the aperitivo theme/tradition. Join this special aperitivo crawl with us to kick-off the new year! Read on for more details on inclusions.
