Full description
Explore the quaint alleys and historic streets of Verona on a 3-hour food tasting tour and visit traditional restaurants to eat some of the city's best dishes. Learn the history of the beautiful city along the way, hearing about the powerful Scaliger family that served as the Lords of Verona in the 13th and 14th centuries and more. Sample local specialties based on the availability of raw ingredients, the season and chef's recommendations on the day. Sip a glass of wine at a local tavern, try some 'bigoli' - a typical Veronese pasta very similar to spaghetti that is rough on the outside to better hold the sauce. Taste Verona-style codfish using a recipe appreciated throughout the province, some delicious 'pastissada' or polenta with 'soppressa'. Finish your meal with a 'risino', a traditional Veronese dessert based on rice. Alternatively, taste ice cream made from flavors created with excellent local ingredients
