There are many things to do when visiting a new city: museums to explore, itineraries to follow, monuments to photograph and, why not, some time for shopping.
Often, however, there are many other things that not even the best tour guides mention. We’re talking about those secrets that only a local person, who lives in that city every day, is able to know and can therefore tell.
But if you don’t have any local friends who can take you around and tell you these secrets, how can you do that?! The traditional guided tour can be very boring… unless there are some tasty stops involved! That’s why food and wine tours are the ideal solution!

Food tours as a way to discover the history and gastronomic traditions of a city
Taking part in a food tour means visiting a city from a totally different point of view.
During the tour you will have the opportunity to admire the city, to look around and to discover the most beautiful and important monuments.
Moreover, food tours usually include a few stops during which your local food expert will tell you something about history, curiosities and unusual anecdotes. The local food expert is always a person who knows the place well and for this reason will explain things that books and guides cannot possibly tell you!
But that’s not all! The local food expert will take you to the best restaurants and eateries in his city because who better than a local can recommend you the best places to eat?
You can discover the traditions and secrets behind the recipes handed down from generation to generation sitting comfortably at the table in the best restaurants.
Learn everything about local food
Through the typical cuisine you can deeply understand the customs and traditions of a territory, immerse yourself in the habits and feel part of them.
Imagine taking part in a food tour in Italy and being able to taste the great variety of typical dishes of a city, accompanied by the enthusiasm and cheerfulness typical of this beautiful country!
