Tour description

A 90-minutes gastronomic tour to discover the original and genuine flavors of Siena, in a series of carefully selected shops and restaurants, where quality is the main rule. You will taste local specialties (salumi and cheeses, truffles, first courses and sweets) with a small glass of wine or prosecco. The tour is basically a light lunch accompanied by a guide who will explain the dishes and the tradition behind them.

Traveling is knowing the different traditional flavors of an area. The goal of the food tour is to let people know the Sienese dishes, savoury and sweet. After the meeting with the guide tour in Siena's main square, Piazza del Campo, the group will head to the first stop nearby the Cathedral for the appetizer consisting of a mix of salami and cheese. The guide will explain in detail every dish rich in history and curiosity. The second stop will focus on truffles in a shop located in the main street of the city. After the starter, first courses will follow, in a typical tavern in the heart of Siena. Here you can taste typical Sienese first courses, depending on the season: panzanella, tomato soup, pici with breadcrumbs or with garlic or other types of pasta! At the end of the tour the guide will bring the group in the San Domenico area, where a local food shop will offer you a selection of typical sweets: cantucci, panforte and ricciarelli, with a good glass of VinSanto (local sweet wine).
