What You Can Expect

Milan Food Walking Tour of Brera

Enjoy the delicious variety of food that Milan has to offer!

Head to Lanza-Brera Station in the center of Milan to meet your local foodie guide. And then began perambulating through the neighborhood, a part of town that is inhabited by artsy bohemian types. The intimate streets are alive with active markets and a fun nightlife scene. 

As you stroll the streets of Brera, learn about the history of food and dining in Milan — and also about the history of the area: how Brera has evolved over the decades and even the centuries. Hear about the development of the nearby futuristic Porta Nuova that was built especially for the overwhelmingly popular Expo 2015. Get an overview of Milanese cuisine, from hearty polenta to breaded veal Milanese to saffron-accented risotto. 

Stop up to six times at various restaurants, cafes and markets to sample some of the local delights. The stops may vary with each tour and depending on what is in season but some likely dishes may include 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.

Then sample some craft beer, an industry that has made some waves throughout the beer-making world in the last decade. Follow that up by heading to a bar to experience the aperitivo, a true Northern Italian tradition in which the purchase of a glass of wine allows you access to a room of edible delights: from huge wheels of cheese to silky prosciutto to green olives. 

When you're full, head to Piazza XXV Aprile in the center of the city to conclude the tour.

This tour was well worth it! It felt like a private tour with only a total of 6. Our guide was from the area so she was extremely knowledgable and took us to a number of places. Every stop was different from the next with a wide range of foods. This tour was well worth the price and experience!
