What You Can Expect

Rome Pizza Walking Tour

Enjoy the best pizza while in Rome!

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 Santa Maria Maggiore, one of the biggest churches in Italy. Hear from your guide how Pope Francis celebrated his first mass here after becoming the pope, and then enter the church to see the tomb of baroque artist Bernini.

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.

The tour was wonderful. The guide was very informative and the places she took us to had delicious food. Even the historical stops were very interesting and informative. Highly recommend the tour and tour guide, Allesandra, we believe was her name.

This tour exceeded my expectations. I knew it should be ok, but it was a thoughtful and interesting presentation. Plenty to eat, come hungry.

This tour was spectacular. They use an inductive approach to pizza. First trying crust, then sauce, the ingredients, then finished pizzas of all kinds. At the end of it I knew so much more about the Italian approach to pizza, food, and culture. The tour gives you a nice tour of the Monti neighborhood but Alessandra gave us restaurant recommendations for all over. We had better meals because of this tour. The group size is small, we had 5 including us on our tour. Don't eat lunch before you go. You get a lot of pizza.

The absolute best! Our guide Chiara was AMAZING and the food we were able to sample was some of the best we had on our trip to Rome....we even ventured back to the places we visited a couple of days later! Worth every penny!
