Overview

No one goes to Italy on vacation without plans to eat. Cross pizza off your list on this food walking tour with a knowledgeable guide. You’ll visit family-run bakeries and favorite local pizzerias while sampling different toppings and learning about different types of pizza, such as the Roman specialty ‘scrocchiarella.’ Plus, stop for gelato, enjoy a beer and visit the Basilica of San Pietro in Vincoli. This pizza tour is limited to 12 people to provide a more personalized experience.
  • 3-hour pizza tour of Rome, led by a food-expert guide
  • Sample pizza and topping ingredients like mozzarella in five eateries
  • Learn about pizza in Italy and of classic variations like capricciosa
  • Visit the beautiful Basilica di San Pietro in Vincoli in between pizza stops
  • Small-group tour with a maximum of twelve ensures a more personalized experience
Your pizza walking tour starts near Piazza Venezia, where you’ll meet your foodie guide and head to your first stop, a century-old, family-run bakery. Enjoy a piece of pizza by the slice—pizza al taglio—before continuing on foot to your next eatery.
As you walk, listen to your guide’s commentary about the history of pizza in Italy, including its origins in Naples and the differences across Italy’s many regions; Neapolitan pizza today is known for its doughy edges, while Rome’s version is a crispy, thin-crust style called scrocchiarella. You’ll arrive at a delicatessen to hear about various ingredients that go into pizza, like capricciosa (made with ham, mushrooms, olives and artichokes). Sample mozzarella cheese, cold meats and pickled veggies, and enjoy a refreshing chinotto, a citrusy soft drink.
Walk deeper into the neighborhood of Monti, stopping at a bakery to try pizza alla pala, which is pizza baked on flint rock rather than a tin surface. Then visit Rione Monti for a sample of Italian gelato before continuing your tour to the Basilica of San Pietro in Vincoli.
End your tour at popular pizzeria known for its wood-oven specialties. Observe the bakers at work in the kitchen, and enjoy a slice accompanied by a beer. Your guide will say goodbye here, where you are free to stay on your own or continue exploring.

This is an excellent tour and Bob was a great guide. He shared great historical facts about pizza and history in Rome, and having the Colosseum as a part of this tour is smart. We skipped the line and he did an amazing job of teaching us the history.

We enjoyed the small group atmosphere only myself, my husband and another couple. Our tour guide was very friendly and informative. We got to walk around a neighbourhood of Rome that we did not plan on visiting. Come with an EMPTY stomach. My husband is a vegetarian and they were very accommodating. Our favourite was the deep fried Naples style pizza. Wear comfortable shoes as there is a lot of walking.

Learned a lot and ate more than I thought. It seemed like we ate every 5 minutes. So delicious, and I am a picky eater.

We thought the tour guide was awesome! She threw in lots of info about roman culture that we wouldn't have learned otherwise. Also, the visit to see the St. Peter in Chains tour was a very nice addition to the pizza stops. We ended up becoming pizza experts thanks to her expertise, and we found her advise useful for choosing pizza and gelato for the duration of our trip.

Thoroughly enjoyed this particular tour. Our guide, Alessandra, was entertaining and informative, and shared her knowledge of the area very well. Don't have a big breakfast, as there is lots to eat in the way of pizza, pizza toppings and tasty desserts!

This was so much fun, we enjoyed every minute. The food was great and plentiful and it's a great way to see and hear about a cool Rome neighborhood and taste its best offerings. Lucilla Lucy was a great guide and made the experience very enjoyable. Lots and lots of walking, wear good shoes.

Yes yes and yes! Pizza in Rome? What more could you ask for. I specifically liked this tour because our guide took a through traditional pizza, the history of pizza, and the different kinds. But be prepared: it's a lot of food!

Awesome tour and not just about food. Do not eat before going, there is way too much to eat.

Very nice tour. We did a lot of pizza eating and got to see a different area of Rome that we probably would not have seen with out the tour. Our guide was very nice and informative. We took this tour three years ago and still talk about it. It was fun day.
