Meet your expert food and wine guide in Piazza delle Erbe to begin your foodie experience. We will eat our way through the main squares enjoying many delicious food and wine tastings. The tastings will vary depending on the season, but typically include local cheeses, prosciutto, seasonal produce, bakery specialties, gelato, coffee and a glass of wine. Learn about the history and production methods of these artisanal products. This tour is for serious foodies and easily replaces lunch!
Your day also includes reserved tickets to the Scrovegni Chapel. This series of 14th century frescoes by Tuscan artist Giotto are second in importance only to the Sistine Chapel, according to some critics. Giotto was extremely innovative for his time, and his masterful depiction of emotion, color and humanity are as impressive today as they were at their completion, over 700 years ago.
