Know More about this tour

Meet your guide near Lanza-Brera Station in central Milan, and then set off on your 3-hour food walking tour of Milans historic Brera district. The neighborhood has long been a haven for bohemians, attracting inspired locals and travelers alike with bustling street markets and a vibrant nightlife scene.

Your guide dishes on the city's history and cuisine as you walk. Learn how Milan has changed over the centuries, from the Navigli district (home to the citys ancient, defunct canal system) to the futuristic enclave of Porta Nuova that was constructed to host the Expo 2015. Along with its architecture, the city's cuisine has also evolved over the centuries, but many original dishes remain. Learn about the staples of Milanese cuisine such as rice and polenta, and discover classic dishes like saffron-flavored risotto and veal Milanese.

In between walking and talking, enjoy up to six food stops to try some of the city specialties. Samples vary on each tour according to availability, but dishes you may try include traditional 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.

Wash down the food with an artisan Italian beer, and then enjoy a Milan-style aperitivo (or a pre-dinner alcoholic drink) at the trendy art bar La Bicicletta. The aperitivo is big in Milan, and many bars put on a lavish happy-hour buffet with enough food to satisfy the hungriest of appetites.

After three hours exploring Brera and its atmospheric eateries, work your way to Piazza XXV Aprile in central Milan, where your tour finishes.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. We were the only two on the tour so that made it very special and we appreciated the fact it wasn't cancelled due to small numbers. Marella out guide (probably have spelled this incorrectly), was just lovely and gave us so much extra information about Brera and Milan. We had six stops on our tour and we enjoyed each place. We sampled marocchino coffee and pastries at a bakery to start the tour; prosciutto, mortadella and parmigiano reggiano at a salumieri; risotto milanese and prosecco at a trattoria; a lovely red wine from the Piedmont region at at a wine shop; cannelloni, milanese meatballs and veal polpettes at another trattoria and to finish off the most divine gelato at Don Peppinu.
    Yes it is a bit on the expensive side but we felt we got value for money.

    The guide on this walking tour of Milan was excellent. The pace was easy and we enjoyed learning about the art district. We had tastes of various foods, loved the lasagna, and wine tasting was interesting. We ended up purchasing wine. Would highly recommend the tour.

    The tour was a small group of 12.we started with pastries. Then we had apertivos, followed by risotto rice. Then we had Italian food, followed by gelato.BTW the gelato place was a chain because on the cups they mentioned a location in Hollywood, Fl near to where I live!!! I think the price was high for what we got. I think .the area was nice to see .

    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.
