Food tour in Italy: a new way to live the city

Italy is a wonderful place full of monuments, palaces, and villages rich in history and tradition, visited every year by millions of people.

It is also famous for its food, and every region has its own traditional dish. Every city, in Italy, has its specific recipe which is transmitted from generation to generation by their inhabitants.

Thanks to the variety of our dishes and the stories, and the traditions hidden behind them, we’ve created a funny way to discover them all: Do Eat Better Experience food tours!

What and where are the food tours by Do Eat Better Experience

At the beginning of 2017 we have created our first food tour in the city of Genoa. With three different food tours you can discover the city of Genoa and its food tradition through the eyes and the taste of who lives it every day.

The food tour is divided into 5 different steps, in which the clients/tourists are guided by a local foodie (and he/she is “local” in the sense that he/she lives the city daily) by tasting the most famous dishes and by discovering the city through the stories of his/her new local friend.

For example, during the Genoa food tour you can try typical food like focaccia, farinata, cheese focaccia, pasta with pesto, etc.

The food tours of Genoa soon became successful and obtained great review and that’s why we decided to start in other Italian cities, by following the same format of Genoa.

In the same year we opened in La Spezia-Cinque Terre, Savona, Milan and Florence. Every city with the same idea, namely 4/5 steps and an itinerant lunch or dinner for discovering the local food tradition.

In 2018 we added new cities and today we offer food tours in almost all Italy: we added the city of Naples with three different food tours, the city of Palermo with a tour in which there are the famous arancina, the most important markets of the city and so on, the city of Verona, Pisa, Turin, Bologna, Rome with two tours in the neighbourhood of Trastevere and a street food tour in the old town.

In 2019 we added tours in the city of Bergamo, Venice and Parma, and we also moved to Spain in the city of Marbella with a tour dedicated to the best tapas of the place and to France in the cities of Paris, Marseille, Lyon and Bordeaux.
