We went on a walking gourmet tour that was led by Hannah. She took us to venues for chocolate gelato and coffee. We went to a market and tasted different types of cheese and peanut butter (YUMMY) .We also had lunch at a local restaurant that included 2 pairings of beer or wine.

This was a wonderful tour with in depth visits to coffee, gelato, chocolate sites and full immersion into fresh foods. We loved every second of it. Wilma was so informative and each visit was not just a tasting but a full view of how each vendor created their masterpieces.
