Best idea was to choose to go on this tour. The history was great to here and the different establishments we went to were awesome. The amount of food we had to taste was a shock there was so much on offer. Brunetti was our favourite and Fabio never made you feel you were just another tour group coming in to view his staff at work.

Thoroughly enjoyed with a lovely group of participants. Good value for money as we received some wonderful food samples. Enjoyed Brunetti so much that we went back several times after the tour for additional meals. A lovely varied selection of eateries and Brenda was a wonderful guide.
