    Itinerary

    This 2 ½ hour Como Food Tour provides a unique food tasting experience. More than a simple “walk and eat” tour. Our professional English-speaking guides will give you the local insider view of the history, culture and architecture, which makes up this fascinating city.

    Meet your friendly guide outside Hotel Metropole Suisse in Como and enjoy a cultural and gastronomic journey strolling along the alleyways of the historical city center in our pleasant sub-tropical climate. Admire the principal monuments such as the great Gothic-Renaissance Duomo, the “Broletto” – town hall Palace and the church of San Fedele – a fine example of Romanesque style. Walk and discover more hidden corners in the medieval part of the town.

    Pause to taste the flavors most appreciated by locals. Visit a local “enoteca” to sample a selection of local wines accompanied by top-quality sliced meats.

    Sample high-quality extra virgin olive oil harvested in Lake Como and learn how it compares to one produced in Southern Italy. Taste delicious fruit-based barrel- aged balsamic accompanied with local cheeses, focaccia and, of course, some wine. If you are a cheese lover you are in the right place: with the mountains in proximity, dairy delights are at their best here!

    Before saying goodbye, our guide will stop at a local selected shop where you will end your tasting experience with a nice “cono gelato”.

    The tour will end in the proximity of the departure point, in order to help you find your way to your next destination.
