We loved this tour! We liked that it started in the morning and we got to experience such a variety from coffee to pastries to antipasti to wine to local fruit to gelato. And our guide, Lorenzo, was so incredible and knowledgeable and have us so much local insight. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone!

Lorenzo was an excellent guide. Small group of 5 others so we could maneuver the busy streets and other tourists easily.
