An easy walking tour in the historical part of the city to discover unique artisans of food!


This tour is intended for genuine and natural food lovers! We will walk through the historical centre of the city of Como, stopping in local places to meet fabulous artisans and taste natural, organic products. Our first stop will be in an organic bakery, where the owners will let you know their secrets about naturally regenerated yeast (called in Italian Lievito Madre) and whole wheats from ancient grains. We will taste their breads (of course!) with some cold cuts, selections of cured meats and special cheeses. Vegan options will also be available on request. We will enjoy also a glass of good (and natural!) wine! We will then continue our tour tasting a special ice-cream without preservatives, additives and chemical colorings. To end our tour we will drink a good Italian Espresso, sitting in the outside tables of an organic Coffee Shop!
