What you'll do

This food experience aims at discovering the best culinary tradition in Verona, browsing among the most renowned dishes and discovering the recipes that Veronese people appreciate the most.

Here is a list of your possible tastings:

- Wine and shots - the traditional aperitif with crostini, stuffed with local products, and a glass of local wine.

- Bigoli - typical Veronese pasta very similar to spaghetti, seasoned with a typical recipe that combines nettle pesto and smoked ricotta.

- Verona style codfish - a recipe appreciated throughout the province of Verona.

- Pastissada: a special recipe consisting of meat stew that thanks to the long cooking time becomes very tender. Alternatively, you can taste the "Polenta with soppressa "(Italian cold meats)

- Risino - a dessert from Veronese tradition based on rice, which you will hardly find outside the walls of fair Verona.

- Ice cream - served with flavours created with local and excellent ingredients, to finish the tour in the finest way.

- Espresso coffee - Italian coffee in one of the most appreciated Patisseries in Verona.

Daniele guided us through Verona taking us to her favorite places to enjoy authentic Italian wine and cuisine. She’s a native of Veronia and is delightful, knowledgeable, friendly, and made us feel like family. I would absolutely recommend this tour and especially our guide Daniele. Great fun!!

We LOVED this food tour. Anna was a super host--she knew her history and had many interesting stories. We got a good sense of old town Verona and had more food than we could consume; definitely come hungry. We had one small glass of wine at the first stop and none after that, so I consider this more of a food tour versus a food and wine tour. (You can buy a glass of wine with the main meal.) We sampled traditional Verona food fare with enough walking in between stops to space it out some--and ended with dessert and coffee. We had a very small group which made it more intimate and allowed for great conversation and room for questions. We highly recommend this tour.

We had a lovely day and felt very much at home. We really enjoyed the personalised tour which had a great balance between history and food/drink. Our host was very knowledgeable in music and opera and gave us a lot of local tips that were very handy. Overall a lovely day discovering the city, its food and its people. We will absolutely do this again. Thank you

I loved the walking tour we took with Anna earlier today. We booked the walk for our first day here so it really helped orientate us to some parts of the city as well as being a really good introduction to the food and wine. Anna was very welcoming and enthusiastic about her home city and the food. She had a good local knowledge and pointed out things we could easily have missed or not realised the significance of and she also provided useful information about other local cities and towns. We ate a lot of food and really enjoyed it. This is a tour to start with an empty belly. I'm not sure we would have been able to find out some of the more subtle foody facts she gave us. Anna gave us suggestions for places we may like to eat and drink during our remaining stay. I would definitely recommend this tour.
