The most authentic taste of Italy there is! Perfect for the foodie in all of us, this three-hour walking tour of Milan is focused on discovering and experiencing the traditional, artisanal foods (and drinks!) of Milan, and the local venues that serve them.
The tour focuses on one of the oldest neighborhoods of the city, Brera. Once you enter this part of town, you will never want to leave! The trendy, youthful energy of this bustling part of town is complemented perfectly by the charming backdrop of the historic architecture of Milan. Watch the lines between modern trend and centuries of tradition blur together. Better yet, taste it! Eat exquisite foods at local, trendy shops that serve traditional foods prepared with centuries-old techniques.
Your knowledgeable and English-speaking tour escort will teach you all there is to know about Milan's fascinating history. You will learn everything about Milan's transformation throughout history – everything from the use of the “Navigli” canals to the newest and futuristic area of the Porta Nuova, filled with cutting-edge technology and created for the express purpose of hosting the International Expo in 2015.
The most enjoyable part of the tour, you will be given the opportunity to sample some of the tastiest treats in the world. Taste a true cannoli, prepared in the tradition of its origin, Italy. Savour the traditional taste of melanzane alla Parmigiana, eggplant parmigiana prepared with the freshest ingredients of the old country. Sample Milan's unique craft beers, and drink the rich, deep, fruity taste of authentic grappa.
As you enjoy each of these authentic foods and drinks, your tour escort will explain to you how each food is made. You will learn of the origin of the foods, and you will understand the process of artful creation that goes into producing each and every one of them.
The three hour tour ends at La Bicicletta, where you will kick your feet up and enjoy a final sampling. You will taste Italy's legendary culatello, dry-cured ham sliced nearly paper thin, meatballs prepared in a Milanese fashion, parma ham that's been aging for 2 years, modern Milan aperitifs (appetizers), and on a final sweet note you will be served authentic Italian gelato
