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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

It was the perfect introduction to Sorrento. We were just passing through en route to Ravello, but this tour made us wish that we had booked some nights in Sorrento. Tamara was very friendly, easy-going, and knew all about the food, restaurants, shops, and merchants of the town. We enjoyed samples of delectable specialties of all types -- so much that we were unable to finish off our proper lunch, try though we might. But more impressively we felt as if we had been given a glimpse into a delightful small-town community of friendly and skillful purveyors. I don't think it is too much to say that the tour made us feel as if we belonged in Sorrento. It was certainly one of the top highlights of our Italy trip. We want to go back!

WONDERFUL food walking tour of Sorrento! Highly recommended! Tamara was a wonderful guide who not only knew the food but knew the city and all the people who live there! She made some great recommendations for dinner and places to shop as well. The end of the tour we sat down and had a bottle of wine with some gnocchi and other tasty treats! 1000% worth it, we will be back!
