The gastronomic journey begins in the Piazza Statuto, in the historic center of Turin. Stroll through the narrow streets while learning about the Piedmontese region and culture with the help of a local guide.   Taste gianduiotto, the local ingot-shapped chocolates with an interesting history. Legend has it that the gianduiotto was born as a result of the continental blockade imposed by Napoleon. As cocoa was considered an expensive, luxury good, many chocolatiers in the region began replacing it partly with hazelnuts, abundant in the hills of the region. Sip bicerin, which in Piedmont means "glass," a local non-alcoholic drink which originates from another 18th century drink called bavareisa, composed of coffee, chocolate, and milk cream and served in round, transparent glasses.   Sample vitel tonnè with a glass of wine. The term vitel tonnè comes from the Piedmontese dialect and refers to a meat dish topped with an anchovy sauce. Although the origins of this dish are shrouded in mystery, it is known that anchovies from nearby Liguria were widely used as an alternative to salt, which had prohibitive prices in the Middle Ages.   Last but not least, sample an array of delicious local cheeses, many of them recognized with protected designation of origin (DOP) status.

Alessandra was an excellent guide, flexible, nice person and added a lot to the trip. Barolo beautiful. The winery is a smaller one, but this is a lovely place and it has interesting history. Matteo is a real professional, who told a lot about wine making. The tasting and wines were good, of course. The journey between wineyards was spectacular and was crowned with the view from the top of the hill. Thank you Alessandra, recommended!

Good guide

This was our first experience through lokify and was pleasantly surprised. Communication with lokify and agent a few days before welcome. Guide was nice, great English, on time and considerate. We walked our backside off over 5 hrs and we cut short by an hours as our backs and legs were shit. Guide Francesco was reasonably knowledgeable and we sAw far more than if we had attempted on own. A good time and learned about the city

Virginia made us discover her city in perfect French, with lots of anecdotes and very interesting information. We can see that she had prepared our visit well and it was a real pleasure to talk to her, that's exactly what we were looking for. Small bonus: a list of culinary recommendations that served us well in such a gourmet city.

Eventhough the weather wasn’t great, it was a wonderful experience to drive around the small villages with our guide Marco, hearing their story and ending it with a well executed and tasteful wine tasting. This is a great way for beginners to the Barolo area to experience the wine and history.

It was a pleasant two hours spent in the company of a local guide who was able to explain the history of the dishes we tasted, without her we would never have found these fantastic places! Thanks
