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.

Tamara was a great guide for Sorrento. Her tour selections were great, and her additional details and stories about Sorrento helped enhance the experience. We also appreciated the little pamphlet she handed out which included some of her other restaurant recommendations. We chose one of those recommendations for dinner and frequented the gelato place from the tour regularly afterwards. We will definitely look for similar tours in other cities we visit and would recommend this to anyone visiting Sorrento.

I enjoyed this walking/eating/drinking tour of Sorrento. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. I enjoyed all the stops and if you liked something, you could purchase it. No need for lunch after. Plenty of food and drink along the way, ending with a very nice pasta dish and all the wine you can drink! I highly recommend this tour!

It was a good tour from an American women. You will leave it full so go hungry. They were a little skimp on the limoncello tasting but you do taste a bunch of different liquors.
