What You Can Expect

Sorrento Small-Group Food Walking Tour

Visit a deli market for real buffalo mozzarella

In the late morning, meet at Piazza Tasso Sorrento, Sorrento's main square, for your 3-hour food tour. Your passionate local guide will lead you on a leisurely walk through central Sorrento, revealing the southern Italian city’s old-world charm and fantastic culinary delights and traditions.

Savor authentic Sorrentine dishes and sip local libations on your visits to eight specialty food shops, markets and family-owned favorites. Come hungry, as these tastings add up to a very satisfying lunch! As you walk, admire the postcard-worthy cliff side dotted with stacked houses and lemon and olive groves, with majestic Mt Vesuvius as the backdrop.

Your first stop is a local pasticceria, where you'll try traditional sfogliatelle (a shell-shaped, filled pastry). Follow with a classic Italian panini and pall'e riso, the Neapolitan version of arancini. These fried rice balls are a southern Italy staple.

Visit a family-owned deli market for real buffalo mozzarella, local cheese and salumi (a cured meat, not to be confused with salami). Sample the area's oldest handcrafted beer, and then savor Sorrento's famous pasta dish with wine at a local trattoria. You'll also learn how Sorrento's famous lemons are turned into limoncello — the must-try beverage of southern Italy.

Your meal concludes with the perfect treat: gourmet gelato! You’ll return to Piazza Tasso Sorrento around 1:30pm with a happy belly.

Would definitely recommend this tour, guide is knowledgable and easy to talk. We were on the walk for about three and a half hours, it is easy walking and very interesting. Don't eat before you go we all struggled to eat everything, which was a shame as everything we had was perfect, a big thank you to our Sorrento guide.

This tour is a must! Tamara was our guide, and she did a fantastic job taking us around! This walk really helped me get acquainted with the town and made me feel comfortable enough to wander around during the rest of my stay. Had it not been for this tour, I wouldn't have been introduced to Bar Rita which I had lunch at several times and Giardini Cataldo home of the best noce and limoncello. Thank you very much, Tamara! You truly know your way around and you demonstrate such respect for the Sorrentine culture and community.

We really enjoyed this tour and was one of our favorites. It was well done and nice to meet the locals. It included three phases...visiting a lemon orchard, experiencing cheese making process, and making a pizza. Would definitely recommend it.

Tamara was an excellent guide! She took us around the most amazing places where we sampled some delicious food. The visit to the lemon grove and factory was a highlight as I simply adore Limoncello! Most of us wondered how we would ever eat the lunch we were offered towards the end of the tour and although it was a bit of a struggle, it was another beautifully prepared dish.
I would thoroughly recommend this tour to get a different perspective on this fabulous town.
