What You Can Expect
Stop by shops and eateries like the Barberini pastry shop, where you can sample baked treats that have been enjoyed here for more than 50 years. Visit a food market for a look at high-quality produce, and chat with some of the local vendors. At Testaccio Market, you’ll have the chance to sample authentic buffalo mozzarella and make your own bruschetta.
Next, enjoy a fried rice ball, a local specialty known as suppli, at Trappizino, and then visit one of the neighborhood’s best restaurants for traditional Roman cuisine, where you’ll taste fresh pasta and wine. Other stops on your tour include Giolitti Caffee and Gelateria, where artisan gelato has been made for more than 100 years, and the Volpetti cheese shop, where 150 cheeses can be found.
While you walk, your guide will share some of Rome’s lesser-known history and point out sights like the city’s only pyramid and the Protestant Cemetery, where John Keats is buried. Your tour ends just a couple of blocks from your starting point; you are free to continue exploring on your own from here, or hop on public transport, a short walk away.
Best tour I have ever experienced throughout my extensive travel. Offered much more than food experience and a very pleasant tour guide. Highly recommend but skip breakfast that day, you will be eating...a lot.
Emma was fantastic. She made the tour better.
We would recommend this tour as a must for people visiting Rome.

The tour was fantastic. I learned more about different food and it was a very enjoyable experience.
It was a fantastic way to learn about Rome and what to eat and where to dine.
We had a wonderful time and had the best ever tour guide Dominico who had so much local knowledge. He was so entertaining and such good company and made everyone feel so relaxed like spending the day with a good friend.
The food was wonderful and don and #39;t have breakfast first! Not to be missed!
The tours was amazing. The tour guide Sarah was excellent. The food was all delicious. Would absolutely recommend to anyone!! We did the morning tour, absolutely want to go back and do the evening tour.
Absolutely wonderful!!! Carmella was the absolute best, while she did not speak much English her singing in Italian made up for it!!! In addition to Carmella, Olivia was a fantastic guide in Florence...her knowledge and passion was so refreshing. If you are looking for a great way to spend your day and get a literal taste of Italy...you will not go wrong here! Book it!!!
We were very pleased with the tour. The four hours went so fast. Bethany was a very informative guide. it helped that she was from WI, as we were! . The previous reviews were correct...DO NOT EAT BEFORE...even thought you get what seems like small amounts of Good Italian food....you are full at the end! I loved going to the cemetery and seeing famous people graves. Our only bad part was the weather. Damp,drizzly and cool.
We had a great guide and this was the best of the food walking tours we've done ANYwhere. I can't recommend it highly enough. We ate well and saw a part of the city that most tourists don't get to see.
