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.

    My husband and I had SUCH a fun night with Daniele and Antonio for our private walking food tour. We got a lot of great info from both of them and it also felt like we were just hanging out and enjoying the company. The stops are all really thoughtful and there are quite a few different bites to taste so I felt it was really generous. The bites are not entirely Milan-specific except for a couple but by the end we felt we learned a lot about Milan and its food. Our stomachs were satisfied after a great evening.

    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!
