Know More about this tour

Meet your guide in Verona city center near Castelvecchio, then start walking towards the historical center of Verona. Begin your tastings in the same way that most Italians begin their day: with an espresso! Pair the robust coffee with a delicious pastry, before continuing with the walk.

Next, head to a historical shop for a taste of fresh products such as Soppressa, a typical salami, paired with Monte Veronese cheese. 

As you continue to your next food stop, listen to your tour leader relate interesting information about the attractions you pass en route.
Make your way to a local workshop where fresh tortellini is made by hand. Learn about the process of making pasta, from mixing and rolling the dough to stuffing it. Afterward, sample some of the freshly made pasta.

Continue to a local wine shop. As you browse the shelves, learn about the production of wine in and around Verona from your tour leader. With five main productions areas outside the city, the region is an important wine-producing area. Taste one of the local varieties, such as a Valpolicella, Prosecco, Lugana, and Amarone.

  • Good food, good wine. Tour includes information about architecture, including fun facts such as the first advertising sign -- a whalebone hanging from an archway signifying a pharmacist had set up shop there. Food included coffee and ricini rice-based pastry and bombini custard-filled and apricot jam-filled pastries a soft salami called soppressa and Monte Veronese cheese with sliced bread three wines locally produced -- Soave Classico, Lugana, and Amarone della Valpolicella cin! cin! tortelloni large tortellini freshly made that day and gelato. Our tour guide was Kristina. She was very informative and led a nicely paced tour, not rushed and not too slow, with a good choice of local vendors.

  • Amazing...great combo of food and city history. Highlight of our trip.

  • This was a highlight of our stay in Verona. We found out so much about the city as well as the local customs surrounding food. Irena was lovely, so friendly and easy to talk to and she obviously had good relationships with all the vendors we visited.We went back to each venue during our stay, to experience the food on offer again and hopefully will do so again when we return to Verona. Hoping you had a brilliant day for your wedding, Irena.

  • We really enjoyed the trip and Irene was an excellent guide unfortunately it was not the trip that we had paid for. On the previous description at time of booking the trip was supposed to finish with lunch in a delicatessen, this did not happen. Nor did we get to see Tortellini being made which had been included in the description. Having said that, the coffee/pastry, meat and cheese tasting, wine tasting and the opportunity to try polenta with unusual toppings were enjoyable. We also finished with a Gelato which was delicious. A good tour but not at all as described.

  • This tour was fabulous. I really enjoyed the whole experience. We had a small group which was lovely.

  • We were a few minutes late had trouble finding the meeting place, but an employee very nicely helped us meet up with the group at the first stop. It was nice to learn about the food in Verona as well as learn more about its history, and it was fun to meet the other members of our small group. I also really enjoyed getting to ask questions of our guide to find out what it's like to live in such an interesting city. The different stops were fun, and the food selections were tasty.

  • This was a fantastic experience our tour guide Irena was amazing and informative. We have done a lot of walking tours but this one stood out from the rest.

  • Irene was the tour guide for my trip. She was lovely and explained how food related to the Veronese culture. We had coffee and cakes, salami, tortelini, wine and ice cream. All locally made produce and all delicious. The tour would be easily manageable for all ages, even on a hot day. Well done.

  • Christina and Matteo were charming and knowledgeable hosts. This is great way of orientating yourself as well as sampling the local gastronomy. Highly recommended!

  • Great tour and a great guide. Local guide with interesting knowledge and history of the food, town and region! Good tastings of typical food and wine and definitely worth doing!
