1. New York City: Little Italy Italian Food Tasting Tour
Immerse yourself in the food culture of Little Italy on a 2-hour tasting tour, and visit 4 different venues in the famous New York neighborhood. Every venue you will visit is more than a century old, and the tastings will make up the equivalent of a 4-course lunch. Start at La Bella Ferrara, the delighting denizens of Little Italy since the late 1800s, and get some of its Italian Rainbow cookies. Then, visit the family-owned Alleva Dairy, where more than 4,000 pounds of fresh mozzarella prosciutto and rice balls you'll ever taste. Then, go to the oldest pizzeria in America and see a 106-year-old coal oven at Lombardi's Pizza. Along the way to Ferrara Bakery, your guide will point out movie locations from blockbuster films, such as “The Godfather,” “Donnie Brasco,” “Mean Streets,” and “Sex and the City”. Next, see the bootlegging depot from the days of Prohibition, and discover a square named after New York’s first Italian detective. Finally, peek inside St. Patrick's Cathedral to see where high-profile weddings and memorials take place before concluding your tour.
