What You Can Expect

Milan Food Walking Tour of Brera

Enjoy the delicious variety of food that Milan has to offer!

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.

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.

Mirella was friendly, super interesting tour, felt like we were right in the swing of a daily Milanese business day. Can't say enough about the arancini, mondeghili and aperol spritz! hard to go back to US way of life. Boring! Great way to understand the daily food options and culture of this great city. She also made great recommendations for sites to see after the tour.

Loved this tour! We always make a point to book a food tour in a new city. This tour was a great way to check out a new neighborhood (outside of the tourist areas) and eat true Milanese cuisine. Our guide, Daniele was super knowledgeable too. This is a must do!
