Oil Tasting

From EUR 10

Olive oil, protagonist every day on our tables, is the gold we add to delicious dishes to make them tastier, healthier and more nutritious; an integral part of the daily diet of every Italian. The Mercato Coperto offers a selection of quality. You may taste two types of oil wich compare the traditions: to start the Brisighello Oil DOP produced with native olives from Brisighella, Emilia-Romagna, then from Puglia the Oil of Olives Peranzana and to finish the Oil of Olives Taggiasche from Liguria, all of them accompanied by our artisan bread, from the classic and traditional version to the most particular.


The experience will be complemented by a GUIDED TOUR OF THE MERCATO COPERTO by the staff, to discover the history, architecture, furnishings and enogastronomic thinking of the place.
