Francesco was awesome!

Excellent selection of high quality Italian meats, cheese, pasta, pastry, and gelato. A bit more walking than expected, but we visited real purveyors and not tourist traps.

Absolutely fabulous, great guide,great food

Francesco Grassa, was a wonderful person with great people skills we felt comfortable straight away, our lives are richer having met him. He took us to lovely artisan cafes and restaurants. Beppe for cheese and wine where the artisan is there cutting the most amazing cheeses we have tasted and we a family of cheese lovers. My first cannoli was at Nonna Vincenza and we have already been back to have more the next day. Many other places, beautiful food, beautiful people, beautiful buildings, amazing history. I would recommend this tour and Francesco to everyone.
