Alc Gourmet Walking Tour: Welcome to the city’s first gastronomical walking tour! We have just begun to market the Alicante Gourmet Walking Tour, which has been designed to allow people to discover part of the essence of the Mediterranean diet and to showcase products that are typically found in the gastronomy of the city and the region of Alicante. Scheduled to run on a regular basis, the tour is led by an expert guide who provides visitors with a vision of Alicante that combines the history of the city and local “denomination of origin” products.
The itinerary features some of the most traditional establishments in the city’s historical centre. Store owners and employees explain the delights of Alicante’s gastronomic products to those taking part in the tour, and of course all the participants get to taste their specialties.
