The best private food tours in Italy

Pizza and pasta are just the tip of the iceberg on a food tour in Italy. One of the world’s most iconic cuisines, Italian food comprises a broad collection of regional culinary styles that together reflect the country’s diversity. Local specialties like super-simple pasta dishes in Rome, crustless on-the-go sandwiches in Milan, or traditional tagliatelle al ragù in Bologna are must-haves, but certain hallmarks of Italian food hold true no matter where your Italy food tour takes you: the pasta is always melt-in-the-mouth, the glistening rows of pastries are always freshly baked, and eating in Italy is always a delight for the stomach and the soul.

A taste of true Italian heritage

Their cuisines may fall under the blanket term “Italian food”, but each city in Italy has its own idea of the dietary staples. In uber-stylish Milan, an extra-strong espresso at a trendy café is the only way to start the day; in Naples, slow-cooked Neapolitan ragù is the dinnertime favorite; and a Venice food tour usually revolves around a bacaro for cicchetti – the Venetian version of tapas that change by the hour. Wherever your Italy food tour takes you, each city’s cuisine represents and reflects its geography, culture, and identity in the most delicious way possible.

Wine to suit every season

A food tour in Italy inevitably involves some spectacular wine. The robust reds and crisp whites from the country’s wine-producing regions can be found in atmospheric wine bars, subterranean cellars, and ivy-clad terraced cafés scattered throughout Italy. In a country with over 500 unique grape varieties, there’s truly a wine to enhance any type of food – and finding the perfect one is one of the most exciting aspects of eating in Italy. Grab a glass with your aperitivo appetizers, or take your own snacks into a casual bar where your local guide can recommend the perfect pairing.
