You guys do it well! Tried it in Firenze, loved it - tried it in Venezia, Loved it! Thank you! I am sorry I missed you guys in Roma and Napoli but I often travel to Italy and I will definitely try it. I loved it because it is very different from the previous one that I did just a couple of days before in Florence. The format is similar but the food is very different. I would have never expected that Firenze and Venezia have such a different history, culture and food! It is Italia but it is not quite the same! I had no clue before this two tours that food culture in Italia is so rooted in the region, area or tow, this opened up a world that I did not know about Italian cuisine. Well, now I know that Veneziani don`t eat Pasta with Meatballs but they call Ombreta a glass of red wine! Superb!
Great value, great food, great fun. Great way to see and sample places you might not try by yourself.
