interesting city tour, but not what we booked!

We booked "Eating like Romans in Testaccio", but were not there with our guide, but in the city center and looked at the well-known highlights and got good explanations. We ate something in a very well-known standing cafe, had a coffee and were in a restaurant in the late afternoon. So it was more of a city tour than getting to know a certain district with its pubs and shops ... which was a shame afterwards!
