What you'll do

I will lead a 4 hour walking food and wine tour in the historic center of Perugia. On this tour, guests will hear and see historical insights along the route as we stop at 8 different, cafes, restaurants and markets to taste and learn about typical Umbrian foods and beverages. Tastings include, coffee (or tea) + pastries, cheeses, charcuterie, ancient legumes (Fagiolina del Trasimeno), extra virgin olive oils, fresh truffle pasta, chocolates, Umbrian flatbread, wines, craft beer, artisan gelato + more! Guests will meet and interact with the chefs, servers and small business owners who’ve made it their life’s work to feed us and who have since become dear friends and neighbors. Vegetarian options are available.
