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.
