Full description
Discover the gastronomic culture of Bergamo on this delicious 3-hour food tour. Discover delicacies from both parts of the town — Bergamo Alta and Bergamo Bassa. Accompanied by a local foodie guide, indulge in the rich flavors and delicate scents incorporated in your secret menu. Dine within the walls of the Città Alta. Your food journey will take you from the origins of Lombardy's culinary traditions to the contemporary Bergamo food scene of today. The tastings on offer depend on the availability, season, and the chef's choices. Some of the possible tastings on this tour include Bergamasco, a traditional aperitivo composed of toasted bread slides with local garnish accompanied by a glass of locally sourced Valcalepio red wine; Casoncelli Pasta filled with different stuffings; Foaide, a traditional Sunday pasta dish in the Bergamo area; Polenta with lard and cheese; and grilled handmade bread with taleggio cheese. You can also try typical stracciatella gelato and enjoy an Italian espresso coffee – the only way to end a meal in Italy.
