Your Rome culinary adventure starts in Piazza Farnese, where you’ll meet your guide and set off on your walking tour, making your way first to Campo de’ Fiori. Visit the popular food market here, where stalls overflow with fresh veggies, meats and cheeses. While you take in the bustling atmosphere, meet some of the vendors, who will provide samples of their tasty goods.

Next, head over to Trastevere, a quaint neighborhood whose cobbled lanes are home to favorite local restaurants and cafes. Walk through the district with your guide, stopping at various eateries for tastings of classic Roman dishes like pasta, pizza bianca (pizza with no tomato sauce), fresh mozzarella cheese, locally cured salami and artisan gelato.

Then continue to the Jewish Ghetto, a bohemian district south of Rome’s historical center known for its vintage shops and art studios. Stop by local grocery stores and delicatessens around Piazza della Cinque Scole for samples of specialties like risotto balls, known as suppli, and fried artichokes and codfish.

With a full stomach, your tour ends in Trastevere.

The tour was well paced and the food was delicious and filling without being too much. Our tour guide was informative and had her finger on the pulse of roman culinary knowledge. I wanted to learn the recipes of many of the dishes that we ate and our guide offered to email them but unfortunately I have not recieved them but it does not take away from this enjoyable eating and walking experience.

Our group first went to a family-owned bakery best known for panetoni. They make Roman style pizza(rectangular rather than round). The two we had were a potato and cheese, and margarita. The next stop in the Jewish quarter served us Roman rice balls and stuffed zucchini blossoms. The last stop gave us mozzarella ala buffalo, then our choice of pastas with a glass of wine. All were excellent, and our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend.

This was a great tour! Valeria was a great guide and we learned sooo much from her about Italian and Roman food! She also provided many interesting facts and history. We had cheese/meets, traditional pizza, risotto balls, deep fried cheese stuffed zucchini blossoms, pasta, and gelato! We learned a ton about the different kinds of cheeses and how they are very regional throughout Italy.

The day after the tour Valeria emailed us a list of restaurant recommendations in Rome and all over ItalyFlorence, Siena, Amalfi Coast etc! She was a fabulous guide and her email was so helpful for the remainder of our visit! We would do this tour again!

Clelia was great at showing us the taste of Italy and some historic sights. We had a lovely time and would DEFINITELY recommend as the first thing to do. We went back the next day to revisit the food and interesting area and it was wonderful!!!! Try the pomegranate juice and feel strangely alive again! IF YOU'RE ON THE FENCE, DON'T BE. IT'S REALLY THE WAY TOO EAT AND RELAX LIKE LOCALS DO. Very impressed!!! Bravo

Met our guide Valaria near Camp de' Fiori who then led us to that market where she explained the market's operations, the various types of produce and it's origins if not grown in Italy, it's country of origin must be noted and the various types of vendors. Then the eating began...pizza from a forno oven, fried stuffed zucchini and fried rice balls, cheeses, salamis and gelato. All this as we walked through Trastevere and the Jewish Ghetto. Valaria was an incredible tour guide. Have already recommended this tour to friends headed to Rome.

Awesome!!! Antonia was amazing as a guide and this tour was a wonderful surprise to my husband and I. We took the tour because we had some time to fill. Boy are we glad we did. We tried so many delicious foods and saw some really out of the way areas that we wouldn't have seen otherwise. We highly recommend it
