Bring an appetite, and make your way to a centrally-located meeting point in the heart of historic Rome, where you’ll meet a local guide for a specially-designed tour of Rome’s best sweets. Learn how dolci, or sweets, have been a part of Roman life since ancient times, and stop at a series of pastry shops and bakeries along the way.
Meet and talk with the artisans who craft Roman sweets each day, and sample a series of rich treats. In Rome, the sweets change with the season and with availability, but some favorite samples include cannoli, tiramisu, and sfogliatelle. Lesser-known to foreign visitors are layered, cream-filled diplomatici, babà, cassata, zabaglione, sfogliatelle, zuppa Inglese, and brutti ma buoni, cookies that are “ugly but good.” .
As you walk, you’ll also see some of Rome’s many landmarks, and your guide will share stories about the city’s history and culture. This 2.5-hour tour of Rome’s sweets concludes at the original departure point.
