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.

    We really enjoyed this food tour, we had to reorganise the timing but were told with some notice and managed to rearrange for a better time. Unfortunately it did rain a little but that didn't stop us. We were the only 2 on the tour so my friend and I got a personal tour. The food was great and it was really interesting hearing about the food and how and where it is produced and cooked as well as some local history about Milan. It was one of the highlights of our trip.

    It was a great tour! Daniele was very knowledgeable as he lived in Milan for years. He showed us all the great places to experience the food culture of Milan as well as enoteca’s to try the best wines in the region. We were the only 2 people of the tour that day so fortunately it turned out to be a VIP tour. Definitely recommend anyone!

    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.
