What To Expect

Meet your guide and fellow foodies in central Sorrento, the seaside town's main square, to begin this tasty food tour. Let your local food-loving guide lead you through the streets of central Sorrento, explaining the food culture of the city and regaling you with interesting historical anecdotes.

During the tour, stop at several different spots: from eateries to delis, markets to dessert destinations. With Mount Vesuvius as the backdrop, stroll the streets of this charming city taking in the colorful sun-kissed houses and palaces.

The first stop is to sample the shell-shaped filled pastry called sfogliatelle at a pastricceria. But don't fill up too fast because next up is a hot-pressed sandwich known as a panini and then pali'e riso, a fried rice ball and a Neapolitan version of arancini.

Walk through a lemon grove and visit a limoncello factory, learn how limoncello is made, taste it and other liquors and lemony treats. Walk on to a family-run deli to munch on some creamy buffalo mozzarella and some cured meat, known as salumi. Wash it down with a few sips of locally brewed craft beer. Not satiated yet? Good, because the next stop is to sample some local pasta delights and wine at a trattoria.

Finish your feast with a stop at a gourmet gelato shop for a lick or two of Italian ice cream before walking off your meal back to the departure point.

A nice walk through Sorrento with very nice food tastings. Tastings were generous and interesting things were pointed out. It was sometimes difficult to hear our guide, as her voice did not project. Overall a good tour.
Great way to orient yourself in Sorrento
Andrea_M, Oct 2022
We had a fabulous food tour of Sorrento, tried many different local savory and sweet specialties starting with a decadent citrus cream pastry. The lemoncello and chocolate tastings were definite highlights and we even learned a bit of history of the area. Tamara had lots of recommendations for places to try after and the stops were well selected.

Nice sampling of foods of Sorrento. While the experience was good our guide was a bit aloof and not very excited or engaging
Superb. Worth every penny
