Lake Como: Food Walking Tour

4. Lake Como: Food Walking Tour

Meet your friendly guide in Piazza Duomo and then set out on a food-lovers walking tour through the charming streets of Como. The tour takes you to a number of historic eateries, modern cafes, and trendy restaurants where you can sample the true gastronomic wonders of this city. During the tour, get a sense of authentic life in Como while mingling with the locals and listening to stories about the city’s history and culinary culture. Start the day off right with a traditional lunch in a historical wine shop. Settle in for a chop-board of high-quality cured meats and a lovely glass of local wine.  Head then for some gourmet pizza, because you can't miss this pillar of Italian street food while in Como. In a delicious, historical bakery, snack on a slice of pizza like the locals do — while walking.  Continue the walking tour with a stop for a polenta dish, the queen of the table in the Como area as well as in the whole Alpine region. Polenta here is produced by mixing corn and buckwheat flour, and is served with braised meat or cheese and melted butter. In Valtellina dialect "sciat" means toad, but this delicacy is actually a delicious and crunchy pancakes with a cheesy center. Sample a sciat and then the delicious Nuvola cake, translating literally to "cloud." While the shape resembles that of a large plumcake, the texture is something halfway between panettone and pandoro, but much softer — precisely like a cloud — and it is filled with apricot jam. Alternatively, you can enjoy a delicious ice cream while walking along the romantic lakeside promenade. Conclude the tour with a coffee, because any respectable Italian lunch can only end with a tasty espresso.

The experience my husband and I had was perfect. Our host/teacher Beatrice went out of her way to ensure we had a wonderful time cooking, laughing and eating. We highly recommend this to anyone who wants to take a memory of Italy back home with them.

Wine tasting led by the owner's daughter. Clear explanations, good wines, tasty snacks and friendly guidance. Definitely recommend!

The tour with Nicole was great! But the drinks voucher for 16 € per person was not worth it!

A great moment of discovery with a perfect guide for all the explanations. I recommend

Best trip ever :) great history, beautiful wiev, amazing wine!
