Full description
Savor the flavors of Italy on a 3-hour walking tour of Milan, focused on the historic district of Brera, one of the oldest neighborhoods of the city, where old world charm meets a trendy and youthful vibe.

Explore the colorful history of Milan as you tour, learning how it has transformed throughout the centuries, from the use of the navigable "Navigli” canals to the new and futuristic area of the Porta Nuova, constructed to host the International Expo 2015.

Your guide will entertain and educate you about the origin of the food produce you will taste, explaining how each one is made. Learn how to identify traditional melanzane alla Parmigiana (eggplant parmigiana), cannoli (Sicilian cream horns), traditional Milan dishes, and some of Milan’s finest wines. Taste Grappa in a new way, and appreciate the rich and fruity taste of this ancient drink.

Try some of Italy’s legendary culatello (dry-cured ham), Milanese-style meatballs, Parma ham aged for 24 months, authentic Italian gelato, and some Milan-style aperitifs at trendy art bar La Bicicletta.

I booked this tour for myself and my partner as part of his birthday gift. I would absolutely recommend this tour, our guide was fantastic! We found out a lot of interesting information regarding the history of Milan and the local produce/cuisine. It was a small group consisting of myself, my partner and one other person so we really got a one to one feel. Each place had delicious food, wine and was very varied. Overall we really enjoyed this tour and would recommend it for anyone wanting a traditional and historical insight into Milan cuisine and history.

Amazing experience!!!

Full day of Italian cuisine in three hours!! We were a small group in the morning and had a lot of interesting and funny conversations with our guide Georgia, who is speaking fluently English. We definitely learnt a lot about the Italian food tradition as the food stops are well mixed and are from very good quality! We were the only one with a small child and even that was no problem at all. We highly recommend this tour if you want to learn more about the city and the food!
