About this tour

Your three-and-a-half-hour guided food tour will take you to markets and popular restaurants in Rome. In groups of no more than 15 people, you will visit places such as the Jewish Ghetto, Trastevere, and Campo de Fiori.

Taste the food and wine in the restaurants, gelaterias, bakeries, and markets. Enjoy a piece of Rome’s mid-morning snack, pizza Bianca garnished with thin slices of mortadella. You will also sample browned supplì: tomatoey fried rice balls stuffed with creamy morsels of mozzarella and savory gelato. In the Jewish Ghetto, you can taste fried codfish and smell the aromatic spices in the Campo de’ Fiori market.

You will learn about Italy’s culinary history as you taste and savor the food and wine. Discover the cultural heritage that the Italian people are known for and interact with the locals. The end of your tour should leave you with enough knowledge to help you order like a local as you enjoy the best restaurants in town.

An extraordinary experience. Starting with the aperitif with buffalo mozzarella, salami and pecorino. About wafer-thin pizza, wonderful-tasting pasta and the best gelato. Highly recommended. Especially when you get Anastasia as your guide. Then there is even more to see and makes a man’s heart beat faster.
