Winter Food & Wine Tour of Verona

Quick Details

This is a must-do culinary experience in Verona!

We absolutely love winter in Verona! Chillier temps make the perfect weather to enjoy delicious, historic winter experiences in this magic city like a local!

We start our walking tour of Verona with a nice breakfast to warm up a bit, then we’re ready to discover the hidden parts of the city. Take a pleasant gastronomic walk through the streets of the historic center, with delicious gourmet stops with plenty to eat along the way.

During the tour, you taste typical Veronese dishes inside warm and cosy places. We visit a small deli shop tasting Veronese cheeses of different vintage and typical cold-cuts, all paired with a great glass of wine. We then move into the historic center between taverns and cosy wine shops.

We enjoy a private olive oil tasting, eat some freshly made bigoli with tomato sauce or ragù in the oldest family-run Italian restaurant, and end our experience with the glorious Amarone paired with high-quality dark chocolate and a local crunchy cake.
