Follow an Italian chef to some of Rome’s culinary hotspots on this food walking tour. Visit one of the city’s oldest markets to learn about the history of Italian cuisine, and explore the Prati district, near Vatican City, where you’ll stop at local shops to try Italian favorites like mozzarella and gelato.
  • Rome food walking tour
  • Treat your taste buds to perennial favorites like cheese and gelato
  • Learn about the history of Italy’s culinary inventions from a knowledgeable guide
  • Discover Roman specialties you won’t find back home
Your Roman food experience begins by meeting your professional chef-guide and heading away from the typical crowded areas of the city in search of family-run gems beloved by locals for generations. As you walk, hear from your guide about the origins of popular Italian dishes like gelato and pizza.

First visit the market (mercato) at Cola di Rienzo, where your guide introduces you to some seasonal produce and tells you how to recognize the best products. Then head to Gastronomia for tastings of regional ham, salami and cheese, including buffalo mozzarella. Continue to a venue known mostly to locals for samples of pasta, panini or Parmiggiano-Reggiano, and then finish on a sweet note with some of the best artisan gelato in Rome.

Loved this tour! Our chef and guide...
, Oct 2016
Loved this tour! Our chef and guide were fantastic and we ate some of the best food. By doing this early in our trip, it also gave us a good insight as to where we'd like to go back over the next few days. Because we were staying at an Airbnb apartment in Rome, we were able to buy some of the food in the market, take it back and create a great meal. Lots of fun!

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed this trip--the chef was very professional and the meal was great. The hosts could not have been nicer to us or more welcoming. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone else.
