What You Can Expect

Rome Food Walking Tour

Rome Food Walking Tour

Your Rome food walking tour takes you off the beaten tourist path to the historic Roman neighborhood called Testaccio, and ideal place to get a real taste of Rome. Savor its delicious food, soak in its vibrant culture, and meet the people who keep so many wonderful food traditions alive.

After meeting your expert guide, head off to discover the culinary gems around this must-see foodie district. As you walk, hear tales of Rome's lesser-known history from your guide, and see sights that many tourist maps miss, such as Rome's only pyramid and the Protestant Cemetery, where the poet John Keats is buried.

Visit the legendary Barberini pastry shop to try its mouth-watering Italian pastries that have been sold for over 50 years. Then, browse gourmet produce at a bustling local food market. While shopping, your guide will introduce you to some of the more colorful characters who work there. Meet the market trader, affectionately known as the ‘Tomato Poet,’ and learn about the 45 varieties of tomatoes that he grows and sells.

Continue your tour to the 00100 Pizza Restaurant to try suppli, every Roman's favorite fried rice ball. Sample some of Rome's best pasta along with wine at one of Rome's best restaurants for authentic Roman cuisine.

Further highlights include visits to the Giolitti Caffe and Gelateria, where artisan gelato has been made for over a century; an upmarket delicatessen called Lina & Enzo's Alimentari, where you'll try fresh mozzarella di bufala; and the fantastic Volpetti cheese shop, home to 150 regional cheeses.

After eating your way around Rome's foodie heaven, you'll end up two blocks from where your tour began, approximately a 5-minute walk to all major public transport options.

Great time. Our guide was wonderful. Forgot her name. She was tall. From America. Married an Italian man. I learned so much. I would highly recommend.

This was such a great way to find local places to eat! Our guide Vincente was great. We ended up with a group of about 12 people. We were given a list of places in the city plus a map of the tour. The food was delicious! We left the tour stuffed. The variety of things we ate was great. After the tour we went back to a couple of the places and then ended up at dinner in the restaurant and gelato at the same place on the tour. What I really liked was that these were all local places. The tourists were no where to be found. Especially liked the visit to the cemetery. I highly recommend this tour.
