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.
