During this unique 2 1/2 hour walking tour we will explore Lecco’s historic centre allowing you to indulge in several eating spots.
We start in typical Italian fashion with real coffee and delicious local cookies. Breakfast, “colazione” plays an important role in Italian social life and is as much about the right way to start the day with food and drink as it is about socializing.
Rub shoulders with Italians, listen to the musical ups and downs of our language and maybe dare to exchange a few words with your neighbor… you’ll see how easy it is to make friends in this country!
Our expert guides will show you the nooks and crannies of the town, rich with history and tradition, hidden away from common guidebooks and at the same time whetting your appetite with more mouthwatering delicious salty finger food.
Whilst discovering Alessandro Manzoni and Lecco’s architect Giuseppe Bovara, you will sample the finest prosciutto, mortadella and bresaola, all followed by varieties of tasty focaccia. If you are a cheese lover you are in the right place, with the mountains in proximity, dairy delights such as Taleggio and Casera can be had … and for the most daring maybe a taste of the smelliest cheeses from the surrounding alpine pastures.
To follow, depending on availability, you will taste the typical local polpetta called Mondeghilo and, given the proximity of the lake, some typical local fresh water finger food.
Lunch and dinner will be served in a typical restaurant renowned for highlighting the ancient lake and land flavors in its dishes. This is the best time to relax and get to know your travelling companions while enjoying a delicious pasta dish accompanied with a glass of local Valtellina red wine and finishing with our famous Italian espresso.
