Modena is not just the place where the Ferrari cars were born! It is a treasure box full of food corners, including the best restaurant of the world Massimo Bottura’s La Francescana!

Furthermore: did you know that Torre Ghirlandina is part of the UNESCO heritage since 1997 together with the medieval Duomo and the Piazza Grande?

  • Private licensed expert Modena guide for 3 hours (English/other languages upon supplement)
  • Mix of tigelle with cheese/cured meats
  • Water + 1 glass of wine
  • Tasting of Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena DOP
  • Coffee/cappuccino with a piece of small piece of pastry OR gelato
  • Entry tickets to monuments (on request, to be paid directly to the guide)
  • Everything not mentioned in the inclusions

Needless to say, the best food Modena tour – with an expert local guide – cannot be named such without a quick walk through or by the historic Albinelli food market*, which is the place where the locals go for their gastronomic shopping or even just for a bite of parmesan and cured meats.

And would you ever miss the chance to taste the world famous “black gold” produced here, that is Traditional Balsamic Vinegar PDO? You will not only savour this precious balm, but also get more familiar with its charming history and with the differences from the Tradizionale grade and any other similar aceto you may have seen on the shelves of whichever food store around the world!

Of course, sooner or later along the tour you’ll need a quick rest to taste the famous tigelle stuffed with cold cuts and cheeses of the region….and a nice coffee to end your day with an indelible memory of Modena and its Emilian spirit!
