Italy Food Tours

Part of the magic of Italian food is that every region has its distinctive dishes and variations. That means there’s no one single “Italian food,” and no single place to sample it all. So the best way to discover the specialties of each region is with a food-focused tour – and to hire a guide for your Italy food tour.

With contributions from Etruscan, Jewish, ancient Greek, and ancient Roman cuisines – and contributions from new world ingredients – Italian food has a rich heritage. Your gastronomic guide can connect the dots for you, and show you why food is such a key part of Italy’s heritage and its contribution to the world.

Italians are passionate about food – and proud of their region’s culinary heritage. Your Italian food tour guide will bring you to the hidden shops, the authentic restaurants (many in operations for more than 100 years), and the most vibrant markets as they introduce you to the food of their homeland.

By avoiding the tourist traps, you’ll discover not only the best in traditional food but also be introduced to emerging neighborhoods and newer approaches to Italian cooking.

Many tours introduce you to the freshest ingredients in the local markets and include tips on recreating the classic dishes of Italy. From the markets of Rome to Venice’s Rialto market, your food tour guide will help you taste and feel the colors and sounds of the local markets as you discover some of the recipes, food, and traditions of the city, and meet the local merchants.
