Overview
Experience the delights of Sienese cuisine on a 90-minute food tour.  Join your small group  in tasting a variety of local salami and cheeses, before enjoying more samples at a nearby truffle shop.  The comprehensive - and filling - culinary experience continues with starters, such as panzanella (bread based salad), at a local tavern. Wrap up your tour with a glass of VinSanto and traditional sweet treats, including panforte and ricciarelli.
Highlights
    What to Expect
    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).

    We've done a few food tours. Maybe we've been lucky in terms of the numbers of tastings/experience we have enjoyed. This was pretty cool, the truffle stop was much above average.. the pasta, average. the gelato above average. So, worth doing I'd say but not cream of the

    Dear Simon, We thank you for give us your impression and we are sorry to know that your experience was not as positive as you expected. Our regular tours are made for a mixed group of people which generally are small groups (maximum 16, with only one guide). We also offer private tours where the guide gives all the attention to you, but clearly the cost is different. However, in your specific case, the group of only 14 people was supported by 2 guides because some of the group members were Spanish. The places where we stop to taste the typical Tuscan products can vary from the availability of the places that kindly host us but, we always guarantee a tour as complete and exhaustive as possible. The experience and preparation of our guides makes this experience unique for getting to know Siena not only for the art. We look forward to seeing you again in our charming city
