In pictures: Birra Moretti's Gran Tour kicks off in Edinburgh


Heineken beer brand Birra Moretti delivered the first leg of its Gran Tour festival at the Summerhall in Edinburgh last weekend (9-12 July).

The Italian-themed food and drink street festival, which is now in its second year, saw attendees dine on traditional dishes such as pizza, arancini balls and a sandwich known as Panino Teca.

Vendors including Arancina, Paste E Basta, Cooking Cooks, The Arancini Bros and Gelupo returned this year, meanwhile another 12 have been added to the line-up.

Attendees were also able to take part in cooking masterclasses led by Italian street food chefs Bash and Joe Herd throughout the three-day event. 

The tour will visit London on 15-19 July, and finally Leeds between 30 July and 2 August.

Birra Moretti selected agency Space to devise the tour for the second year running.
