Overview

Indulge in tasty Italian delights with this 3-hour tour of the Brera neighborhood, one of Milan's hippest parts of town. With your foodie guide by your side, traverse the intimate streets of Brera, stopping at six different spots to sample rich cheese, unctuous prosciutto, hoppy craft beer and other local delicacies. 
Participants on this small-group tour are limited to just 12 people, ensuring plenty of personalized attention from the guide.
  • 3-hour food tour of Milan’s Brera neighborhood
  • Learn about Milan’s history and its distinctive cuisine from a local guide
  • Enjoy up to six food stops in beloved local eateries around Brera
  • Sample classic Milanese dishes such as mondeghili, the local meatballs
  • Try popular specialties from around Italy including Parma ham and traditional Italian mignon pastry
  • Small-group tour with a maximum of 12 people ensures a more personalized experience
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 was a very good experience. The selection of foods and stores were both interesting and of very high quality. The tour guide was very good but not quite as good as a tour guide we have had in Paris. I would strongly recommend the tour and feel we did have a very good experience. The Brera district is beautiful and is a good place to experience food.

This is a must do tour if you love food and local neighborhoods. Our guide, Paul, was so knowledgeable and fun. We had 12 of us on our tour - we were the only Americans with 3 separate fun groups from Australia. We started at a coffee/pastry shop, off to beer meats/cheese, Milanese risotto, lasagne, a local wine shop and gelato. At each stop we received an explanation of the importance of why we were there and the history of what we were eating. This is a great way to visit a local neighborhood and try some of the local cuisine. Eat a really light breakfast, and this is plenty of food for your lunch for the day.

I was pleasantly surprise by this tour. My tour guide Debra was great, took us to several eateries. We'd big portion of prosciutto, parmesan cheese,and beer. Next we tasted, lasagna, two types of meatballs, one boiled in broth and the other fried in the clarified butter. Bread with green olives to follow. There was a good wine and on the end we had gelato. On the way to different tasting places Debra told us about the history of Milan, just enough to get you interested.

This is a must do! Great walking food tour with a little bit of history lesson.
We sampled a lot of great food and some beer and wine. We did a lot of walking and like how each place is spread out. We left very full!

Fantastic walking tour, full of information on architecture as well as the surrounding areas demographics. Enthusiastic guide and the food was awesome. Suggest doing this on your first day in Milan as it quickly shows you the characteristics of the various eateries, where to go and what to eat saving a newcomer to the city the delima of finding suitable authentic eateries at reasonable prices.

We couldn't have asked for a better tour guide..she was great! She was very knowledgeable about the area and we never felt rushed at any of the six places we visited. Would recommend it! The only problem was that we got lost finding the meeting place, but our guide called us and directed us accordingly went above and beyond. We visited places we probably wouldn't have visited and even was introduced to a new drink called Spritz!
