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?
Needless to say, the best food tour of Modena - with anexpert 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 visit a small family-run producer of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar PDO downtown ready to tell you about the ancient charming history of their magic product, which is soooo different than 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!
