Walking Food tour - Lago di Como - Italian Lakes

Food Tour Lake Como - Food Tours are a wonderful way to experience the food and culture of Italy.  Our 2 ½ hour Lake 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.

Admire the principal monuments such as the great Gothic-Renaissance Duomo, the “Broletto” - town hall Palace, the eighteenth-century “Teatro Sociale” and the church of San Fedele - a fine example of Romanesque style, all whilst pausing at the most popular food shops to enjoy the dishes and flavors most appreciated by locals.

Meet your friendly guide in Piazza Cavour and begin your walking tour with a visit to a famous historic café to savor a tasting of freshly made espresso and a delicious pasticcino of your choice.

Wander through historic neighborhoods and take in the vibrant cultural atmosphere while sampling tasty focaccia, followed by a choice of local cheeses. If you are a cheese lover you are in the right place: with the mountains in proximity, dairy delights can be found here.
Next, visit one of the most famous enoteca (wine shop) to sample a delicious local wine together with an exquisite tasting of the finest local sliced meats such as bresaola, prosciutto, salame and mortadella. Our expert guide will explain the various wines produced in the area.
Learn all about the cooking process from your expert guide as you savor a tasting of fresh lake fish or typical local finger food in one of the top local restaurants, all accompanied by a glass of wine.
This ends the morning tour and twilight versions of our tours.
