Description

Discover the 1800’s Italian population and how they first settled in Washington DC. We pay tribute to that history by sharing the Italian history of DC and exploring the popular Dupont Circle neighborhood. We’ll take in the sites, culture and sample some of DC’s best Italian eateries along the way.

Stops vary with each tour, but make your way between 4–6 local establishments to sample Italian Canpania, Palermo Piacenza, Piedmont regional dishes. You might savor a bite of perfectly al dente risotto, caprese salad with fresh tomatoes, fragrant basil, and creamy mozzarella, or try an entrée like filet mignon prepared in traditional Italian fashion. At each location, your guide seizes the opportunity to discuss the characteristics of Italian cuisine and describe the regions where each dish originated.

Dave our guide was excellent! He was very personable and interacted with everyone. It was a rainy day and he kept it light and gave us options. Highly recommend!
