We are now standing in the heart the main piazza or square in Trastevere of called Piazza di Santa Maria in Trastevere, the hive of activity of the neighborhood. Everyone do a little pirouette and take a good look at the gorgeous buildings and great atmosphere of this piazza.

with consists of four arcades with a large "eyeglass" circular on the central pylon, which has always worked as an alarm bell when the river is full.
Toni was phenomenal. She knew her stuff, was fun, engaging and I’d request her if you can! We learned Trastavere history, food, market tips, butcher tips, recipes and the food was delicious. Do not eat before this tour.
Fabulous and fun way to learn more about Italian culture

GiGi was our tour guide and made our trip so enjoyable! She was friendly, fun and knowledgeable. The food choices were fantastic and most of them we had never tried. Come hungry because there is a lot to eat on the tour! I definitely recommend this tour.
We loved this food tour, we got to try the local favorites and our tour guide Domenico was phenomenal, he was the highlight of the tour. We had a small group of four and domenico explained to us that entering these shops and restaurants was similar to entering their homes and taught us phrases on how to great and thank them in Italian. We loved all the food especially the porchetta and were happy with such an authentic personalized experience.
This was a wonderful experience. Who doesn't want to try different food in Italy?? this tour covered so many restaurants and so much food it was amazing on all counts. Plus, the neighborhood of Trastevere is very special and a great difference from central Rome. Our tour guide was not only extremely knowledgeable,, he was so nice, funny and made the tour great. I would highly recommend this to all who visit Rome, love food and want to get a close look at the neighborhoods and the people who grow, make and eat the local food.
This was the best way to keep us upright after flying overnight to Rome. We walked around this small neighborhood and were wowed with the tasty items and the history of the food, shops, traditions. After the tour, we checked into our hotel had left luggage there earlier and were in bed by 5 pm but slept like babies through the night and then off to our cruise ship the next morning.
Francesco was an engaging group leader giving a bit of historical background to the various shopkeepers businesses. The food was great and a chance to spend time as a group enjoying the local area from a different angle than one normally would,
This tour was one of the highlights of my Rome stay. We had a small friendly group, and Dario, our guide, was enthusiastic and very informative about the area and the food tasting was excellent. Would highly recommend, and it's best to come a little hungry. Revisited some of the places in the following days after the tour and was not disappointed.
Awesome tour! Our tour guide, Sarah, was informative and very helpful. We toured the streets of Trastevere of some family owned bakeries, restaurants, a butchery, and fresh market. My two teenage daughters loved the tour as well-- we all had plenty of food! I would highly recommend this tour.
