Important Information

  • Please check your email the day before the tour for important information. Please note that the number of tastings and attractions depends on the selected option. Please arrive on time as late arrival may affect table reservations. The guide will wait for up to 30 minutes. For the best experience, we limit your group size to 1-25 people per guide. We will arrange additional guides for larger groups. Please advise us in advance of any dietary requirements, such as food allergies or vegetarian options. The tasting includes a full-course meal, not just samples. The golden rule in Italy is to serve enough food for the table to collapse, so we recommended joining the tour on an empty stomach to fully enjoy each of the dishes served. The menu described is only an example. The types of dishes will vary depending on availability. The guide will pick the best food for you to try. The legal drinking age in Italy is 18.
