You will discover local restaurants and the most hidden places, frequented only by locals. Come and taste some of the most famous dishes of the Emilia- Romagna tradition and immerse yourself in the culinary and cultural traditions of this beautiful city. Some of the possible tastings on this tour include: a board of cold cuts, Parmigiano cheese, and glass of wine; Tortelli (egg pasta filled with differents ingredients); Carciofa (a delicious and cheesy quiche; Bomba di riso (a rice timbale seasoned with a meat sauce; and Tigelle, prepared with a mixture of flour, lard, yeast, and water (typically stuffed with salami).

    Alice was really helpful and informative. There was too much food to consume on the tour so it was great we could take the sandwiches away.
