Full description
Take time out from admiring the luxury villas around Lake Como, and treat yourself to a morning of regional food and city sights instead. In a small group, you’ll discover the locally loved eateries around Como and try traditional products and wine that you won’t find in the tourist restaurants. Learn about the city and its landmarks as you explore, and soak up views of the lake from the Lungolago promenade. Como is a city of culture and art. The old town features elements from its Roman and medieval past, as well as religious buildings and palaces. After a walk in the city center, your guide will walk you in Villa Geno, which is located in the heart of Como, next to the famous fountain with a 30-meter high water jet, immersed in a unique naturalistic complex consisting of the lake and the promontory behind it. You will enjoy a walk along the banks of the lake to the end where you can admire the fountain. Upon returning from Viale Geno, you will be taken to the Brunate funicular that will take you to the top where you can enjoy an enchanting view of the lake and the Alps. At the top, you will be guests of a restaurant where you taste the ancient recipes of Como such as Cutizza and Polenta Taragna. Located at the southern part of the lake, Como is also known for its Gothic-style Duomo, the panoramic funicular and the pedestrian path along the lake. You will wander through historic neighborhoods and take in the vibrant cultural atmosphere of this magical town. After a walk in the city center, your guide will walk you to a winery where you will taste the best champagnes and sparkling wines of the city.

Amazing!

It has been a great experience. The guide certainly very friendly, knew everything and without a doubt the fact of trying the food of the area was a very good point. Super recommended!

Not exactly as described but we enjoyed it very much. Our guide Paola was wonderful! She added history of Como and food do and don’t.

We took the tour on September 2nd, 6 persons. Our guide was excellent, had good knowlwdge of the city and we enjoyed his guidance. However, this tour is called Como food tour, but there wasn't much food included, which was really disappointing since we paid 120 euros per person. We had very good coffee at the start of the tour and taste two wines with some cheese, bread and meat at the end of the trip, that was all. So the guide and the walk was good but that is all.
