This is a good food tour and I would recommend it. The only thing I would caution on is that it's long. 3 1/2 hours, an hour of which could easily be reduced with less standing around listening to historical information. A tour of this...More

Myself and two friends wanted to see and taste something different. Phylis was very informative, I loved all the little secrets and local knowledge. Really nice tour, lovely food and very authentic surroundings. We will definitely book up the Italian food tour next.
