“Il Dolce E Salato” Gourmet Melbourne Shopping Tour
“DOLCE E SALATO” GOURMET ITALIAN SHOPPING TOUR OF MELBOURNE
While on holiday stock your pantry with all things Italian and have a fantastic day out with Italian Delights Tours in Melbourne’s famous Sydney Rd and Lygon Street
If you are like Jim and Lynette, the excitement of finding great cheese, great cured meats, great coffee and authentic Italian wine, pastries and gelati is like being a child in a toy shop! Put simply it is a day out in heaven! Italian Delights Tours welcome you to come along on our small group “Dolce e Salato” (Sweet and Savoury) shopping tour of Melbourne (max. 7/min. 2 guests). We take care of all your groceries during the tour. Once you have bought your items, they are safely stored away in a cool place in our well–appointed vehicle and all you have to do is sit back and look forward to the next stop on this gourmet shopping tour!
We have chosen the best quality Italian food stores that also represent great value. We take you to all of Jim and Lynette’s regular haunts for stocking the pantry – places that they have been visiting with their family members for decades – Unpretentious and unashamedly Italian! Shop owners invariably speak Italian as their first language and many of the customers do too! This mix of gourmet Italian food stores also offers a range of products which will make great gifts or special treats for you, your friends or loved ones!
After the shopping part of the tour guests have time to enjoy a casual lunch at the many great Italian cafes and restaurants in Lygon St before we conclude the tour.* Lygon St is a celebration of all things Italian and is the location that introduced the espresso machine to Melbourne in the 1950s, hence launching the city’s famous love affair with coffee.
