Full description
Start your food tour of Bologna at the Fountain of Neptune on Piazza Maggiore, and set off to experience 5 authentic tastings (enough for a big meal) at a diverse set of venues. Stroll in a small group for a more intimate experience and visit the city's oldest market full of historical, family-run stores. Expect to eat enough food that, for most people, will negate the need for lunch afterwards! Follow entertaining local guides and hear stories that will give you an insight into Bologna’s traditions and culture along the way.

Savor a delicious torta di riso (rice cake) in the city's oldest bakery, and go to the chocolate factory where the first solid chocolate sfoglia nera was invented. Feast on cured meats and cheeses, such as Parmigiano Reggiano with balsamic vinegar, Mortadella, Salame di Felino, Caciotta and Prosciutto di Parma with typical breads and local wine at a typical delicatessen.

Visit a pasta laboratory to taste their homemade egg pasta, and end with an authentic Italian gelato at a gelateria.
