Itinerary
Stop At:  
Brera District
Meet your guide near Lanza-Brera Station in central Milan, and then set off on your 3-hour food walking tour of Milan’s historic Brera district. The neighborhood has long been a haven for bohemians, attracting inspired locals and travelers alike with bustling street markets and a vibrant nightlife scene. Your guide dishes on the city's history and cuisine as you walk. Learn how Milan has changed over the centuries, from the Navigli district (home to the city’s ancient, defunct canal system) to the futuristic enclave of Porta Nuova that was constructed to host the Expo 2015. Along with its architecture, the city's cuisine has also evolved over the centuries, but many original dishes remain. Learn about the staples of Milanese cuisine such as rice and polenta, and discover classic dishes like saffron-flavored risotto and veal Milanese.

Along with local delicacies, enjoy samplings of popular Italian treats such as gelato and cannoli, or melt-in-your-mouth slivers of culatello — a prized Parma ham. Wash down the food with an artisan Italian beer, and then enjoy a Milan-style aperitivo (or a pre-dinner alcoholic drink) at the trendy art bar La Bicicletta.

Georgiana was our guide for the day and was punctual and friendly. We were the only people on the tour which was nice and enjoyed the various stops. We tend to do food tours in each city we visit to get acquainted with the area and the food. Our favorite was the lasagna followed closely by the gelato at the end.

This was a great tour for foodies with 6 stops, tasting local foods from some of the places you would walk past without a second look. Fabulous food and drink coupled with a knowledgeable guide, what more would you want?

Food tour extraordinaire!

The food tour was fantastic. Our guide, Georgia, was wonderful. She greeted us with a beautiful smile which never left her face for the entire tour. She was knowledgeable, professional, friendly, and never in a rush. We had a leisurely, relaxed, and thoroughly great time. The venues in the Brera district were very accommodating and the food and wine samples were representative of Milanese cuisine. We have been on many outstanding food tours in many cities, but none better than this tour with Georgia. She is a prize!

What a fantastic tour of; arguably, the coolest district on the planet, Brera. Our wonderful guide, Merilla was an absolute joy and clearly very proud of her city and the food and culture of that city. The lasagne we tried was just sublime and the gelato was off the charts. Highly recommended

M was simply the loveliest tour guide. She took us to every local spot, and we learned so much history you simply won’t get by yourself or on massive groups. It felt so intimate. I’ll do it every single time

There was only one other person on the tour. Probably should have been canceled. Would have been more fun with a slightly bigger group. Tour was also quite long at 3 hours.

Hi Renos, the tour is almost certainly more fun with bigger groups but when we receive last-minute cancellations then we prefer not to disappoint the guests who are still booked by canceling the tour.

We had a great morning touring the Brera area and sampling delicious specialties of Milan. Our guide, Veronica, was very knowledgeable and friendly. My advice to others is to come to this tour with an appetite, as there was an abundance of food tastings throughout the morning.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Grazie Karen! Veronica is a fantastic guide and a lovely person too :) Milan is not as famous for its food as some other Italian cities but there is so much deliciousness to be found, you just have to know where to go!

Make Sure You Do This

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. We were the only two on the tour so that made it very special and we appreciated the fact it wasn't cancelled due to small numbers. Marella out guide (probably have spelled this incorrectly), was just lovely and gave us so much extra information about Brera and Milan. We had six stops on our tour and we enjoyed each place. We sampled marocchino coffee and pastries at a bakery to start the tour; prosciutto, mortadella and parmigiano reggiano at a salumieri; risotto milanese and prosecco at a trattoria; a lovely red wine from the Piedmont region at at a wine shop; cannelloni, milanese meatballs and veal polpettes at another trattoria and to finish off the most divine gelato at Don Peppinu. Yes it is a bit on the expensive side but we felt we got value for money.

The guide on this walking tour of Milan was excellent. The pace was easy and we enjoyed learning about the art district. We had tastes of various foods, loved the lasagna, and wine tasting was interesting. We ended up purchasing wine. Would highly recommend the tour.

I have been to Italy many times and have had many tours. Our guide, Debra (hope it is the correct spelling), was one of the best guides. Very knowledgeable and professional and responsive to the needs of her clients. I would highly recommend her for this tour.

With only two days to discover Milan and the best it has to offer, this gave the six of us a quick but well rounded tour of the area’s food highlights. The guide made the tour a great experience for everyone with his charm, perfect English and expert knowledge.
