This tour begins with a large-group (maximum 30 people) walking tour of Rome’s most famous ancient monuments. Begin your walking tour with a guided trip through Rome's 2,000 years of history with an expert, professional guide. See the streets come alive as your guide takes you to key, ancient Roman sites - Navona Square, the Pantheon and Trevi Fountain. You will learn first-hand about the role of these places in Rome’s development and imperial rule, admiring these marvels of Roman ingenuity that have withstood the tests of time.

Your walking tour concludes at Trevi Fountain, where you’ll join a small group of up to 12 people and retire to a nearby restaurant for your Roman cooking class. Under the guidance of your expert Roman chef, you’ll learn to prepare a fantastic Italian meal. Learn lots of cooking secrets and come away with a spectacular, hands-on Roman cooking experience as well as the know-how to prepare a fabulous Italian meal at home. Try your hand at making fresh, authentic, homemade pasta, then sample your creations with your fellow aspiring chefs, sipping on congratulatory glasses of local wines.

Please note: Rome's Trevi Fountain is currently under restoration until late 2015. A walkway above the central portion of the fountain will allow you to catch a glimpse of the ongoing work. Water will be drained during the process, but you'll still be able to cast your coins into the fountain for luck.

Our tour guide was amazing. She was very knowledgeable, well paced, and friendly. We also did the cooking class and had an amazing time making three different types of fresh pasta. Our instructor was very friendly and a wonderful teacher. This was definitely well worth the money!

5 stars to the cooking class. It was fun, we had a great teacher, and the staff was wonderful. Chef Fabio even came to check on us. I've always wanted to make pasta and this class was the best. I give the walking tour 3-1/2 stars. The guide was knowledgeable but not personable.

The cooking class was WONDERFUL! The chef Fabio was so nice and the food was the best that we had the entire week we were in Italy. We visited Venice and Florence first and could not find good food anywhere. The food here was so good we came back the next day to eat dinner. After the short walking tour you are taken to "That's Amore" restaurant where you will take your cooking class. One thing to note is that the only thing you are making is pasta. You will be making 3 different types of fresh pasta. The chef then takes it in the back to cook the food. Even with that, the class was so much fun. I would definitely recommend the restaurant and cooking class. The walking tour was just ok. We had a mixed crowd, some German and some English speaking participants. The tour guide had to then repeat everything she said in German as well. This took away from the tour as it was hard to pay attention to what the guide was saying. I think for future classes it needs to be all one language. Perhaps have different tours for different languages.
