Description

Come and join us on this evening out among the Milanese, in a small, friendly group of 15 people or fewer, sampling the Navigli Canal district's fine food and wine. We'll start the night off right, with a glass of wine near the Naviglio Grande, the oldest canal and the heart of the action. The festive spirit, lively music and beautiful canal reflections in the golden hours of sunset make this an irresistible location for an extra-special occasion.

Your guide will then lead you on a pleasant walk through the area, sharing captivating details from the past and present. Topics of discussion will range from what Leonardo da Vinci and Napoleon had to do with this area, to where to get the best Risotto alla Milanese made according to the original recipe.

Along the way we'll make a stop at a classy enoteca (wine bar), for more delicious wine, meats, cheeses and typical local breads. Here, everything is hand-selected from some of the finest products available. The bar staff and your guide will explain how these wines and typical local products are made and what makes them so unique.

We'll continue on past art studios, chic designer shops, bookstores, specialty bars and more as the light begins to wane and the establishments fill to bursting with locals. As the evening air fills with music, laughter, and conversation among friends, we'll head to our final destination for a traditional aperitivo. In Italy, an aperitivo can mean anything from a light drink with a few nuts or olives to finger foods. We're going to spring for the latter here! When it's time to say goodbye, your guide will be more than happy to make dinner recommendations. Be forewarned, however. You may not have room for dinner after all that food and wine!

Includes

  • 2 glasses of wine and 1 cocktail of choice

  • a wide selection of Italian specialties (ham, cheeses, crostini, vegetables, rich buffet of appetizers)

  • English-speaking guide
