Full description
Taste your way through some of Rome’s fabled restaurants, markets, and specialty food shops with an expert guide as you discover the succulent secrets of Italian cuisine!

Your 3.5-hour walking tour takes you to some of the city’s best-loved neighborhoods to sample a variety of different delights, from gleaming, beautifully-displayed fruits and vegetables in Campo de' Fiori (for the morning option) to the artisanal gelatos of the picturesque Trastevere neighborhood. Groups are kept to no more than 15 people so that you won't miss a sip, a bite, or an expertly woven point of Roman culinary heritage as you wander through lively plazas and flower-strewn side streets.

The stops include historical markets, bustling bakeries, gelaterias, and traditional restaurants where you'll share the delicious food and wines of the region. Sample pizza bianca, the legendary mid-morning snack of Rome, festooned with thin slices of savory mortadella; you'll also taste cool, flavorful gelato and expertly browned supplì: tomatoey fried rice balls stuffed with creamy morsels of mozzarella. You might even try fried codfish in the Jewish Ghetto and catch a waft of exotic spices in the Campo de' Fiori market. Through tasting, talking, savoring, and sharing, you'll learn about the culinary history of Italy, fundamental to so much of the culture's richness. You'll also get the inside scoop on any special food events taking place at the time of your visit.

By the end of the tour, you'll have learned to order food in Rome like a pro and where to find the best bites in town, preparing you to eat like an emperor for the rest of your Roman holiday!

Outstanding experience!

What a great way to literally acquire the many flavors of Rome. As we casually strolled the streets of Rome, we stopped at a number of unique, diverse food establishments to sample everything from cheeses, meats, pastries, pastas, and other tasty treats. It was extremely interesting, and a great way to spend half the day. We ended up being in a small group of six people who were very compatible, which made the experience even better. Our guide for this trip, Antonia, was absolutely wonderful! Everything about the way she conducted the tour was perfect! Grazie Antonia! I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in this type of activity....

Nice and varied

It was nice to get to know a bit of the city like this. We did this on the first day, so we could get ideas for the rest of our trip. We have tasted many delicious things and learned a lot. I did miss a drink with the snacks .. That was true with the culinary tour in Lisbon and that was very tasty and also made the atmosphere in the group more enjoyable .. But it was fun.
