What you’ll do

Don your eating pants (you know, the stretchy ones) and get ready to dine like a true Milanese.

In a personalized experience with a local Milan host, a local with a passion for food, you will eat and drink your way through colorful Milan, gaining a feel for the flavors of Italy and its rich heritage.

From risotto alla Milanese, cotaletta (breaded veal cutlet) and ossobuco (a dish of melt-in the mouth braised veal shank), you’ll soon see that eating like the Milanese means eating hyper-local, and with passion.

Stop for a quick espresso at a classic standing bar (milky coffees after lunch are a no-no), then on to the next dish! Try polenta, a Northern Italian comfort food to die for when it’s cooked right (which it always is in Milan), nibble on some creamy Gorgonzola cheese in a deli and finish with a slice of panetonne - you might think this fruity bread is only for Christmas, but it was born in Milan and enjoyed all year round here.

And of course, you couldn't do a food experience without ending with a true Italian gelato!

This is going to be the food crawl of your dreams - please just arrive hungry!

Local food toir

We enjoyed our tour with Greg very much. He was very accommodating and we were impressed with his knowledge of the city. He took us to some great places for local food.

Greg was AMAZING! Very knowledgeable, and proud of his country! Took us to some quaint out of the way places! The tour, walking, and popping in to local places that we NEVER would have found! Wear comfy shoes, and be able to walk about 3 miles. I’m sure you could do less if unable to- he is very accommodating. Excellent communication, and we even booked it last minute! We were lucky! An ABSOLUTE MUST!!

Great way to spend an interesting evening

Giovani is a very well researched and interesting young man. He knows a lot about Milan and Italy and can tell you about it in an interesting and easy manner. It was very hot when we did our tour and he did his best to make sure that we walked in the shade and took breaks. A very enjoyable time
