With mountains and a lake in easy reach, Como is fertile ground for fine food. During a 2.5-hour tour of the town’s historic center, you’ll discover the locals’ favorite bakeries, delicatessens, and wine shops. The walk-and-eat experience also takes in landmarks such as the Cathedral of Como, and includes fun facts about the town’s history, culture, and architecture. Even better: Numbers are limited to 15 people for a personalized food tour.
After meeting your guide and small group of no more than 15 people, set out on a walking tour of Lake Como's historic center.
Admire the Cathedral of Como, with its striking Gothic-Renaissance architecture, stop to see the town hall of Palazzo Broletto and the Romanesque Church of San Fedele; and visit the 18th-century Teatro Sociale. Along the way, learn more about the region's cuisine and discover the best places to eat in the town.
Walk to a historic café for an espresso and a pasticcino of your choice. Then, wander around the lakeside neighborhoods to sample focaccia, handmade breadsticks, and local cheese. Learn of traditional ways to cook the lake fish as you try Como’s take on finger food and sample regional cheeses. Finally, stop in a wine shop for a tasting, and nibble on cured meat such as bresaola, prosciutto, salami, and mortadella. If you booked the morning or twilight tour, your tour ends here.
If you selected the upgrade, then continue to one of Como’s traditional restaurants to finish with a dinner influenced by the local land and lake. Dishes change, but typically you’ll savor two types of pasta along with wine, water, and espresso.
Please note: A minimum of two people per booking is required.
