Description

A wise man once said: “know the food, know the Romans!”.

And it’s true, knowing the Roman food tradition is knowing the Romans. Taste the truth during an engaging Food Tour! Rome’s food is such an important part of the city’s soul, that it is simply impossible to leave Rome without having a taste of its delicacies. But beware: many places in large Italian cities serve“tourist-adjusted food”….

Enjoy a fun, informative delicious Food Tour in Rome, led by the knowledge of a local food and culture expert!

Discover Rome’s beautiful city center and authentic Roman fare, learn about the traditions, join the locals in their favorite haunts, and taste only the best, original, Roman flavors.

Our Food Tour, Rome, allows you to treat yourself, and savor the specialties! From street food treats to decadent deep-fried stuffed seasonal vegetables and typical pasta dishes, the whole city is a soul-comforting festival of tantalizing tastes. And Romans simply love to share their delicious fare! Discover the Eternal City using your senses, dive into the local gastronomic heritage and taste traditional specialties during a wondrous "Food Quest" through two of the most charming districts of Rome.

Start with the famous “Espresso e Cornetto” in Rome and learn the Italian tradition behind il caffè, “brown gold”. Stroll through the streets of the historic Trastevere district, (“across the River Tiber” “trans Tiberim”, in Latin) the most characteristic, colorful, and evocative of Rome’s neighborhoods, where the working classes lived during Ancient Rome; Follow your dedicated small group tour guide for a unique insider’s view of the city’s vibrant soul, a “sniff” of its appetizing scents, and delicious morsels of local specialties. 

Wander down charming cobblestone-paved streets to Campo de’ Fiori, a delightful square filled with sparkle. On weekday mornings “Campo” hosts a typical open-air market, a great place to check out the daily fresh produce and listen to the colorful voices bargaining. Let your guide lead you to the ancient fornai (bakeries) and botteghe (local delis), browse through the shops, lose yourself among aromas and sensational flavors.

Your Food Tour in Rome, includes signature snacks, like scrumptious pizza bianca romana, crispy fragrant ciambelline al vino, supplì, and much more, meet the locals and share their stories… there is no better way to make friends than at a table full of specialties and toasting with some “vino de’ li’ Castelli” (wine from the hills north of the city).
