Passport to Eataly

Passport to Eataly is a journey around our marketplace for kids ages 8-12. Passports in hand, kids discover the food and language of Italy as an Eatalian guide tours them around our marketplace. At each destination, kids hear from an expert, learn an Italian word or phrase, and earn a stamp in their passports. Markets and meals become demystified as kids discover the value of whole ingredients – with delicious tastes along the way! During the tour, Eataly offers each parent or caregiver up to two cups of espresso at Lavazza.


Step outside the classroom. Not quite sure where to start, how to navigate this massive market or just want to learn more? Let one of our senior staff members lead you through a guided tour. He or she will be sure to cover every corner with a behind the scenes peek at each department. You will also be treated to delicious tastes along the way.
