Meet your guide in central Varna and begin your 4-hour walking tour around the city’s culinary hotspots. Old-world landmarks mingle with a modern, seaside buzz in this interesting city, and your guide will talk about its history and distinctive cuisine as you explore.

Learn about traditional Bulgarian cuisine and how it combines old Ottoman influences with rustic peasant cooking based heavily on flavorful vegetables and herbs. Hear about staples such as shopska salad, a combo of chopped tomatoes, cucumbers and grated cheese, and classics like musaka, a minced meat pork dish similar to Greek moussaka.

In between strolling and chatting, enjoy six food stops to sample local specialities. While foods will vary according to availability, expect to try sticky sweet treats and pastries; rich, nutty-flavored spelt bread, and some crystal-clear spring water.

On your travels, peruse fresh local produce at a colorful market, and stop to admire a stately 19th-century house and interesting craft shops.

As a finale, head inside a traditional wine cellar. Descend into the atmospheric cellar and run your taste buds by three fruity Bulgarian wines specially selected by the winery host.

After your tasting, return to the start point, where your tour ends.
