Activity Overview
A holiday in Milan is incomplete without sampling the mouth-watering cuisine it has to offer. The ideal way to accomplish this is the expansive, 3-hour Food Tour of Brera, which is the oldest neighborhood in Milan, steeped in history and quaint old world charm!

A guide will take you to six different places so you can taste the most delicious and scrumptious food as you learn fascinating trivia and historical facts about food and dining in Milan, including that of the Brera area and how it has evolved. The tour begins with a visit to a locally run pastry shop for some yummy Italian cream rolls, which is considered to be the best in town. Once you fall in love with the recipe (you will!), you can ask the guide about how to bake it at home.

After the pastry shop, we will begin our stroll in the fascinating Brera district and jump into a real temple for food lovers; there, surrounded by hung hams, you'll taste two different Italian cold cuts and learn how are they made. You will also have the opportunity to taste a new version of the famous Risotto alla Milanese prepared by one of the most historical gastronomic shop in Milan.

During the next part of the tour you will visit the Pastificio Moscova, where you will taste two kinds of special meatballs – once a poor recipe, now a treat - and a traditional Italian dish: Melanzane alla Parmigiana. Our recommendation is not to miss out on any of those delectable preparations!

You will also experience Aperitivo, a genuine Northern Italian tradition. Leave room for yet another refreshing Italian concoction called Grappa – it is literally poured onto the palate so you can perfectly taste the fruity flavor, while learning about its distillation and aging process. 

The tour concludes with the captivating history of the Italian Gelato that you get to eat while walking around at leisure. Rest assured this is one Food Tour you will hold memorable for the rest of your life!
