    Como Small Group Food Tour

Como Small Group Food Tour

  • City: Como
  • Duration: Approximately 2.5 hours

Taste your way through Como in this half-day shared tasting tour.

Overview

Como is a city that speaks the language of tradition and romance, with its ideal position at the southern end of beautiful Lake Como. What better way to get to know the true soul of the city than by exploring its cuisine in the company of a local guide who can tell you how the food, natural resources, culture, history and architecture influenced this marvelous city by the lake?

This shared group tour will take you past all the important monuments in the city such as the magnificent Duomo, the Broletto Town Hall, the eighteenth-century Teatro Sociale and the church of San Fedele, while stopping at the most popular food shops to sample traditional dishes beloved by the locals.

Meet your guide in front of the Hotel Metropole Suisse to start this walking tour with a shot of freshly made espresso and a pasticcino (small pastry) at an historic cafe'. As you make your way through the town, enjoying its atmosphere, you will try focaccia and handmade breadsticks, as well as a selection of local cheeses. Como is a paradise for cheese lovers: due to its proximity to the mountains, there is an abundance of milk and dairy products.

During your stop at the most popular gastronomia (deli) in Como, you will taste fresh lake fish and typical finger foods. Then you'll learn the secrets of the various wines produced around the lake at a famous enoteca (wine shop), while tasting them paired with local cold cuts such as bresaola, prosciutto, salame and mortadella.

The tour includes a light lunch or dinner in a restaurant that honors the flavors and traditions of the lakes area to deepen your understanding of the local cuisine.
