Full description

Milan is a unique place with two souls, a very traditional northern Italian one, and one that is bustling and innovative as you can find only in a few European capitals. Taste food from only passionate and high-quality local producers, some of the best food venues that only locals know, and experience the greatest sample of what Milan has to offer. Start your tour with a tasting of local Franciacorta sparkling wine in a hidden venue, a gem kept by wine lovers. Your licensed guide, the food ambassador, will introduce you to Milanese food, curiosities, hidden gems, and lifestyle. One of the best-known dishes around is Risotto Alla Milanese, so taste it in one of the best local restaurants, combined with a second pasta dish and an excellent local white wine. The tour continues with a sample of grass-fed meat and some cheese bites when the local market is open. When not, you will taste some local cold cuts and fresh cheese from a popular restaurant. Finally, your tour will end with a dessert.

  • 3 glasses of wine
  • Food tastings in four unique venues
  • Professional local guide

The tour was a lot of fun. The meeting went smoothly and it was a lot of fun to see Milan in this way. The food was very good and the restaurants really varied and entertaining. We enjoyed the time with our guide and also with the other couple who were traveling with us. We definitely recommend the tour for anyone who wants to know more about Milan than what is read in the tourist guide.

Paola was very knowledgeable and entertaining. She showed us her favourite places to eat typical food of the area. We had a wonderful warm evening during a festive time. Very enjoyable.
