Tour Description

Although Turin is renowned for its chocolate, it also has a thriving culinary scene, and was home to the first ‘Eataly’! This culinary tour of Turin is ideal for any foodie! In groups of at least twelve people, this four hour tour allows you to discover some of the local delicacies and food produce available in the city.

The tour will start at the ancient Porta Palatina, before entering Europe’s largest open-air food market– the Porta Palazzo. Here you can wander amongst the market stalls selling a multitude of fresh fruit and vegetables, and also see the covered market, where they sell meat and cheese; you can also sample some incredible cheeses.
