The Do Eat Better Experience food tour is a walking tour in at least 4 stops around the historical center of Bergamo Alta. The tourist is guided by a "Foodie", a local "buddy" able to explain every detail of the selected restaurants, their preparations, and the relevant history/curiosities. Do Eat Better Experience tours are a mix of high-quality gastronomy as a way of showing Italian culture and lifestyle and a walking experience together with a local friend. This is the reason why we accept small groups only: we want to focus on a genuine exchange and give to each tourist the highest attention possible. Please, note that the tour is always run in English and Italian; other languages upon request.

Itinerary Details

Operated by: Do Eat Better Experience

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: La Citta Alta

Bergamo is the split-into-two town: Bergamo Alta (‘the high Bergamo”) and Bergamo Bassa (“the low town”), joined by the historic cable car. Within the heart of the beautiful Bergamo Alta, we selected the best preparations, capable of presenting in one dish the food culture of the area of Bergamo: from the farmers’ traditional meals, to the richly presented meats, to the gelato ‘stracciatella’, which was first created in Bergamo indeed. Escorted by our local Foodie, you will discover a secret itinerary enclosed within the walls of the Città Alta, created following strong flavours and delicate scents, starting from the origins of the Lombard tradition and taking us to the contemporary Bergamo food scene that we know today.

Pass By: Fondazione Museo di Palazzo Moroni

Let's start the tour with a typical aperitivo with toasted bread slices topped with local garnishments, sided by a glass of Valcalepio red wine

Pass By: Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore

We then move to the second stop. In one of the most charming restaurants in town, we will taste the traditional casoncelli or the Foiade, the Sunday dish of the local tradition.

Pass By: Piazza Vecchia

We'll pass by Piazza Vecchia and reach our next stop where we are going to taste the famous Polenta with lard and cheese.

Pass By:
