EXACT MEETING POINT DETAILS ARE ON YOUR VOUCHER- Carmine church steps. Things before you go. Bring or buy water to the tour.

This activity will end right where it started.
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.

An excellent and filling Italian food tour
Summer_H

We absolutely loved this tour on our first full day in Sorrento. My husband and I went on multiple food tours throughout Italy, and this was our favorite. The gelato and pizzeria recommendations were so good that we found ourselves breaking our own rule of "never twice" to return to the same locations multiple times during our visit. Come hungry--you get a ton of food on this tour! It was also a tour that we felt comfortable doing despite the extreme heat of July. The pace was leisurely with great air conditioning during the restaurant stops. The host, Tamara, is welcoming, witty, and fun; she really elevated the tour and made it one of our favorite excursions while in Italy!

We enjoyed the variety of foods and the history that went along with them, walking around the alleys and learning how to get around and the lemon grove. A must for the beginning of your stay in Sorrento. Our tour guide, Tamara, was a blast to hang out with.

A great way to explore the different areas of Sorrento

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed Tamara’s tour, which involved a diverse range of local food and drink. She took us to places outside of their opening times and off the beaten track (such as the lemon and orange orchard). A particular highlight for us was the Calabrian speciality food shop, where we tasted lovely sweets, biscuits, balsamic and oil. We would recommend for anyone wanting the benefit of local knowledge.

Enjoyable tour - with plenty of food!
Julie_S

This was a really good tour. We took the advice from other reviews and did this tour early on our trip. We got a ton to eat, and I loved how varied it was! We were stuffed by the end! We felt like we got a great introduction to Sorrento. Tamara gave us her card, and we were able to use it when we came back to buy souvenirs to get a discount at a few places. The only reason I'm giving it a 4 out of 5 is because Tamara was a little bit...cold? Toward me and the person I was traveling with. They asked Tamara a few questions and Tamara's responses were sometimes great, but other times made us feel like we were asking dumb questions.

Highly suggest this tour! Like a couple people have mentioned, it’s best to do this tour in the beginning of your trip to familiarize yourself with sorrento since she takes you around, shows u transportation stops, and gives helpful tips to move around (not to mention which spots are open 24/7). Overall great informative tour, and not to mention the food was AMAZING.

Excellent time. A great overview and tastings. Don’t eat breakfast as you will get enough food along the way. Tasting from Limoncello, chocolate, meats, cheeses, gelato, and lunch at a restaurant with wine. Tamara (our guide) was full of information and was open to questions. Great tour of the the lemon grove and factory.
