What You Can Expect

Taste the City: Food Tour of Rome

Time for Wine

Your Roman food experience begins by meeting your professional chef-guide and heading away from the typical crowded areas of the city in search of family-run gems beloved by locals for generations. As you walk, hear from your guide about the origins of popular Italian dishes like gelato and pizza.

First visit the market (mercato) at Cola di Rienzo, where your guide introduces you to some seasonal produce and tells you how to recognize the best products. Then head to Gastronomia for tastings of regional ham, salami and cheese, including buffalo mozzarella. Continue to a venue known mostly to locals for samples of pasta, panini or Parmiggiano-Reggiano, and then finish on a sweet note with some of the best artisan gelato in Rome.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

Loved this tour! Our chef and guide were fantastic and we ate some of the best food. By doing this early in our trip, it also gave us a good insight as to where we'd like to go back over the next few days. Because we were staying at an Airbnb apartment in Rome, we were able to buy some of the food in the market, take it back and create a great meal. Lots of fun!
