I'm a foodie so the Gelato tour I booked through Le Baccanti seemed like an obvious choice. As my guide led me through tastings at several gelaterias and smaller shops with excellent local products, I learned a ton about Italian food, wine, culture but most importantly had a fantastic time. If you're into food and wine even a little I would highly recommend this tour.
