Walking Palates Food Tour of Milan

Milan is a unique city with two souls: a very traditional, (northern) Italian; and one that is bustling, innovative, fashion-driven, with the energy that you can find only in few European capitals. It’s also their combination that makes this city unique. We will show them both to you, taking you in three different neighbourhoods.Our walking food tour of Milan starts with a wine tasting, a local Franciacorta sparkling wine in a hidden and unique venue, a little gem kept by wine lovers. This is the traditional beginning of a feast in Italy, and the perfect start for a dive into the Milanese atmosphere. Our licensed guide, your Food Ambassador, will walk you through recipes, dishes, curiosities, history and lifestyle showing you Porta Romana area, known to locals for the quality of its restaurants; the bustling area of the Darsena, not far from the Navigli, the centre of Milanese nightlife; and the classy San Lorenzo area. Not to have you walk too much, and to experience the Milanese favourite means of transportation, we take you on a trolley ride. Our gastonomic tour includes of course the most traditional of local dishes: Risotto alla Milanese, in one of the most renowned restaurants. We combine it with a more innovative pasta dish, as well as with an exquisite white wine. At WalkingPalates we choose only passionate and high-quality local producers, and the best food venues that only locals know. That’s why our tour also includes the only cheese shop in Italy that sells cheeses only made with unpasteurized milk; or an Italian reimagining of fashion-Milan favourite dish: sushi! These are just some of the stops that, walking you through a proper Italian meal of five courses paired with wine, ends with a dessert that may be a modern version of tiramisu or something equally creative.
