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 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. Milanese and Lombardy cuisine are also known for the cheeses, so visit a place that can’t be found anywhere else in Italy, Resistenza Casearia (Diary Resistance), the only cheese shop in Italy selling cheeses only made with unpasteurized milk. These are just some of the stops that, walking you through a proper Italian meal of five courses, ends with a dessert tasting.

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.
