    Brera District
    Stop: 3 hours -
    Meet your guide near Lanza-Brera Station in central Milan, and then set off on your 3-hour food walking tour of Milan’s historic Brera district. The neighborhood has long been a haven for bohemians, attracting inspired locals and travelers alike with bustling street markets and a vibrant nightlife scene. Your guide dishes on the city's history and cuisine as you walk. Learn how Milan has changed over the centuries, from the Navigli district (home to the city’s ancient, defunct canal system) to the futuristic enclave of Porta Nuova that was constructed to host the Expo 2015. Along with its architecture, the city's cuisine has also evolved over the centuries, but many original dishes remain. Learn about the staples of Milanese cuisine such as rice and polenta, and discover classic dishes like saffron-flavored risotto and veal Milanese. In between walking and talking, enjoy up to six food stops to try some of the city specialties. Samples vary on each tour according to availability, but dishes you may try include traditional melanzane alla parmigiana (baked eggplant with Parmesan and tomatoes), mondeghili meatballs, and traditional Milan dishes. Along with local delicacies, enjoy samplings of popular Italian treats such as gelato and cannoli, or melt-in-your-mouth slivers of culatello — a prized Parma ham. Wash down the food with an artisan Italian beer, and then enjoy a Milan-style aperitivo (or a pre-dinner alcoholic drink) at the trendy art bar La Bicicletta. The aperitivo is big in Milan, and many bars put on a lavish happy-hour buffet with enough food to satisfy the hungriest of appetites. After three hours exploring Brera and its atmospheric eateries, work your way to Piazza XXV Aprile in central Milan, where your tour finishes.

We really enjoyed the tour. We tasted all local specialities. We learned a lot about not only the neighborhood and the city of Milan. The food was great.

Had a nice walk around Brera area tasting various kinds of Italian food. Tastings were yummy and I especially liked the wine store as it had a great 100 year history and original store fixtures. Unfortunately the guide was not from Milan and she knew nothing about the history of

Response from sery_eflorence, General Manager at Milan Food Walking Tour of Brera
Responded 21 Sep 2019
Firstly, I am sorry that our Milan Food Tour did not meet your expectations. We work very hard to make sure that anyone who tours with us has a fantastic time. All of our guides are licensed professionals and should be able to answer any questions thoroughly. On Friday when I saw this review I scheduled a meeting with our Milan Operations Manager to discuss what can be done to ensure our guides continue to treat the food tour as an historical, cultural tour with delicious food stops. This week we will be working with the guides to remind them of exactly what is expected regarding context and cultural perspective. Thank you for choosing us and once more my apologies that it wasn't as awesome as you (and I) expect it to be.

Loved the walking tour. Excellent guide. She clearly enjoyed her job. Happy, positive person. Delicious food. I really enjoyed walking throughout Brera to explore the neighborhood. There were only four of us which made it a small personalized tour.

I have experienced several exceptional walking food tours usually with Backcountry Culinary tours and they have all been worthwhile. The visit sites were usually selected for having excellent local specialities or historical significance. Naturally in Milan I expected the same
