Full description
Traveling is knowing the different traditional flavors of an area. The goal of the food tour is to let you know the Sienese dishes, both savory and sweet. After meeting your tour guide who will explain in rich detail the history and curiosity of every dish, head to the first stop at an inn in the area of the cathedral.

Enjoy a starter of typical Sienese bread, salami, and cheese. The second stop will focus on truffles, the precious and well-known tuber in a shop located in the magnificent setting of Piazza del Campo. 

After finishing the starter, it is time for the main course in a typical tavern two minute’s walk away from the square. Here, according to the seasons, you can taste typical dishes like panzanella or pici with crumbs, tomato soup, or pici pasta with garlic.

At this point, you’ll be ready to start with Sienese goodies: first you will appreciate the famous Kiss of Siena, the Bacio di Siena, a delicious nougat covered with chocolate. Then, taste typical sweets such as cantucci, panforte, and ricciarelli. With a good glass of Vin Santo, finish the food tour and say your fond goodbyes to group and guide.

If you would like to explore Siena further, opt to include a 1.5 or 2-hour walking tour before your food experience. Start your monolingual walking tour at 10:30 AM in the morning and discover the art, culture, and traditions of Siena. Visit and make at some of the most beautiful UNESCO sites in the city including the Piazza del Campo and Palazzo Pubblico. The 2-hour version includes a 30-minute guided visit inside the Duomo. Then, start the food tour at 12:45 PM.
