Then travel next to a local workshop for a behind-the-scenes look at how tortellini is made. See how the dough is mixed, rolled and stuffed, and treat your taste buds afterward to some fresh pasta samples.

Benedetta was our tour guide and she is full of energy and knows so much about her beautiful city of Verona. My brother and I had the best time on this tour. We discovered Verona through our stomachs and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was excellent, the wine tasting was super interesting and we learned so much. It was the perfect half day and exceeded all of our expectations. This is a must do in Verona. Thank you Benedetta!
Diana is an excellent and well informed tour guide/ historian. We visited shops and locations which displayed the true life.and flavor of Verona. She added color and "pop" to Verona for me.
If you do not like to walk, do not sign up for.the tour. It is not a difficult walk but you are walking. Plus she added.many stops/location of interest to talk, eat, drink and learn.
We loved this tour! Our lively and friendly guide, Benedita, was a perfect representation of a warm and welcoming Italian. We visited 5 shops and enjoyed the following items: Coffee with pastries, handmade tortalonne, cheese and meats, wine tasting and gelato. Each stop was in an authentic Italian-owned and operated shop and the food was simply delicious. Don't go expecting a big meal. It's a tasting and worth every bit of your time and money. We would highly recommend this tour!
This was a great tour, this was my third trip to Verona but my first tour and I have to say I learnt a lot and our guide was so knowledgeable. Got to taste some wonderful food and wine and I would recommend this if you want an introduction to Italy and Verona.
The best food tour we have done, our guide was fantastic. We were able to learn about the history of the city and the food we were eating. This was the most expensive food tour we have done but with the wine tasting I think it good value for money. Would highly recommend.
We has a wonderful time on this tour. Diana our guide was friendly and incredibly informative about the places that we visited. The food and drink tried was divine. I cannot recommend this tour enough.
