Perugia Food Tour - One-of-a-Kind Food Tastings
One-of-a-Kind Food Tastings – Our guided Perugia Food Tour visits eight tasting locations within the historic center of Perugia. Classic Umbrian food samplings, enough for breakfast and a hearty lunch, are served from local, one-of-a-kind restaurants, charming cafes and markets.
Stops and tastings include Perugia’s famous chocolates, hand-made truffle pasta, cheeses, an authentic Umbrian “osteria,” the city’s oldest spice shop, and one of Italy’s top rated artisan gelaterias. The tour also includes two wine tastings. All food and wine tastings are included in the ticket price. See all Tasting Locations below.
Historic & Cultural Experience – Between tastings, you’ll experience the vibrant life of “i Perugini” as you stroll the medieval streets and alleyways of Perugia’s historic center. Our enthusiastic local guides share their knowledge and recommendations of ancient architectural gems, historic local attractions, museums, music and arts venues, and restaurants.
