There’s no better way to experience the authenticity of a new place than with a food tour, being able to learn about the history and culture of a city through its flavors is an unforgettable experience.
This walking tour hits some of the city's main attractions, such as the Old Port, the Saint Lawrence Cathedral, the House of Christopher Columbus and the Unesco World Heritage Sites, but mostly takes you off the beaten path, through the narrow winding alleys. All along the way there are plenty of street food shops, like tiny bakeries offering the local specialty, the famous focaccia bread fresh out of the oven all day long. The "sciamadde" noted for the flavored tarts, baked in deep, old wood ovens, the "friggitorie" serving paper cones of tiny fried fresh fish, rings of little squid, ruby-red shrimp. Elegant confectionery shops specialized in chocolate, candied fruit and all sorts of sweets, such as family-run gelaterie revealing all the secrets of the artisanal gelato, or lively food markets displaying stalls with seasonable fruit and vegetables, fresh fish and meat, scented spices and flowers,.
A truly “non-touristy” experience to get a real taste of the city, both what the locals eat and where they like to hang out.
There are about 5 samples, including a slice of focaccia, a paper cone with fried fish and vegetables fritters, original pesto sauce, chocolate, biscuits and candied fruit, ice cream and water.
