My market/wine tour is offered to groups of two or less for 125 euro. The fee is for the group, not per person. Additional people are 35 euro each. This tour includes a visit to the farmer’s market, Sant’Ambrogio Mercato, a typical Italian bakery and a vino sfuso shop, where we will fill our own bottles with the local wine from big kegs. Then on to the Mercato delle Pulci (flea market) to see what treasures we can find. Afterwards, we will have lunch at my favorite pizzeria. To finish, we will go to a wine, balsamic vinegar and olive oil tasting at a small wine shop. The tour lasts about 3 hours and must be started before noon. Sundays are not available for this tour.
Traveling with a friend, partner or spouse? If he/she doesn’t like to shop, we can settle your companion in a cafe on the piazza with a cappuccino or glass of vino while we shop! Or we can suggest alternate tours of the city or countryside.
