Meet your guide near Lanza-Brera Station in central Milan, and then set off on your 3-hour food walking tour of Milan’s historic Brera district. The neighborhood has long been a haven for bohemians, attracting inspired locals and travelers alike with bustling street markets and a vibrant nightlife scene.
Your guide dishes on the city's history and cuisine as you walk. Learn how Milan has changed over the centuries, from the Navigli district (home to the city’s ancient, defunct canal system) to the futuristic enclave of Porta Nuova that was constructed to host the Expo 2015. Along with its architecture, the city's cuisine has also evolved over the centuries, but many original dishes remain. Learn about the staples of Milanese cuisine such as rice and polenta, and discover classic dishes like saffron-flavored risotto and veal Milanese.
In between walking and talking, enjoy up to six food stops to try some of the city specialties. Samples vary on each tour according to availability, but dishes you may try include traditional melanzane alla parmigiana (baked eggplant with Parmesan and tomatoes), mondeghili meatballs, and traditional Milan dishes. Along with local delicacies, enjoy samplings of popular Italian treats such as gelato and cannoli, or melt-in-your-mouth slivers of culatello — a prized Parma ham.
Wash down the food with an artisan Italian beer, and then enjoy a Milan-style aperitivo (or a pre-dinner alcoholic drink) at the trendy art bar La Bicicletta. The aperitivo is big in Milan, and many bars put on a lavish happy-hour buffet with enough food to satisfy the hungriest of appetites.
After three hours exploring Brera and its atmospheric eateries, work your way to Piazza XXV Aprile in central Milan, where your tour finishes.
