What You Can Expect

Rome Food, Pizza and Colosseum Small-Group Tour

Colosseum Guided Tour

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.

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.

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.

Our guide, Alessandra, was great. We toured the archaeological area of the Roman forums on the way to the pizza places, and she shared excellent historical information. We then essentially tasted the construction of a pizza from the crust up - tasting the crust first, then the possible toppings, then the final product. We also took the side trip to climb up to the Church of St. Peter in Chains, which we might otherwise have missed.
