I arrive by taxi at the tour meeting point, Piazza Santo Spirito, early enough to enjoy exploring the neighborhood, do a little shopping, photograph nearby Palazzo Pitti, and enjoy a Coca-Cola Light at Caffe Ricchi.

At the appropriate time, I head for the fountain in the middle of the piazza. Here I meet Gaia Ancilotti, a cheerful young woman, and a couple from New York who are also on the tour.

The “Sunset Food Tour” is new to Eating Italy. While “The Other Side of Florence” runs during the day in the neighborhood of Oltrano, the evening tour takes visitors through the neighborhood of Santo Spirito surrounding the piazza and the Church of Santo Spirito.
