Small-Group Rome Food Walking Tour: Trastevere, Campo de' Fiori and Jewish Ghetto

Small-Group Rome Food Walking Tour: Trastevere, Campo di Fiori and Jewish Ghetto

Meet your guide in Piazza Farnese, central Rome, and then set off on your 3.5-hour food walking tour around the city. Like all Italians, Romans love to eat, so your expert local guide is well placed to introduce you to Rome’s favorite eateries.

First stop is Campo de' Fiori to explore its famous food market – popular with locals and tourists alike. Browse the heaving market stalls with your guide, admiring artistically arranged stands of vegetables, cheeses and meats, while soaking up the market’s friendly ambiance. Your guide will introduce you to some of the traders here, who’ll happily let you sample some of their high-quality offerings.

A large concentration of the capital’s restaurants and bars are found in the picturesque cobblestone streets of Trastevere – a vibrant neighborhood where bustling eateries spill outside into its pretty piazzas. On a stroll through this eclectic end of town, your guide will show off some of the local’s firm favorites -- sample a classic Roman pasta dish inside a top restaurant and then stop at a café to try out the best pizza bianca (tomato-free pizza) in town. Taste fresh mozzarella with locally cured salami, and then stop at Fata Margana gelaterie for an artisan gelato – the Italian’s far superior answer to ice cream!

Continue your tour through Rome’s Jewish Ghetto, an equally bohemian neighborhood -- just south of the city’s historic center. Hunt out the ghetto’s most popular delicatessens and grocery stores that are peppered throughout the streets, sandwiched between interesting artisan studios and vintage shops. Try suppli – every Roman’s favorite fried risotto ball – and then sample some of the staples of Italian Jewish cuisine, like fried artichokes and codfish in Piazza della Cinque Scole.

After discovering the best foodie haunts around Trastevere, Campo de' Fiori and the Jewish Ghetto, your tour ends in San Cosimato Square (Trastevere).

We had a wonderful guide Fredericka she was very knowledgeable and helpful. She made sure everyone who had different food requirements that they were all met. It was a very historic view of Rome with great food thrown in. We have done other food tours and this was a nice pace and the food outstanding. Make sure you don't eat before the tour though or you won't be able to fit everything in.

Great tour! Great guide I think her name was Francesina! She was very spunky and knowledgeable. We enjoyed every bite.
As a fellow traveler: The afternoon tour does not go to the market, but is worth it nevertheless.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this walking tour. Our tour guide, Valeria was an absolute pleasure. She was knowledgeable and thorough in covering all the areas we visited. There were only 5 of us in the group and we hit it off with the other 3 people. It was a beautiful day in Rome which added to the positive experience we had. This was our 2nd Walking Tour, having done the Testaccio one 2 years ago. I recommend this tour and Viator in general.
