This 2.5-hour tour of Rome’s sweets concludes at the original departure point.

Amazing, delicious and fun!
Dec. 2018 • Couples
We did this tour while on our Honeymoon and WOW, what an amazing tour!!! Our guide, Virginia, was not only knowledgeable about the local food, but also the history, architecture and people of Rome. We had so much fun exploring all the food Rome had to offer and we visited some key monuments along the way. Virginia ordered everything for us, so all we had to do was enjoy. This tour is well worth the time and money! We had a great time doing this just as a couple, but it would also be amazing with a small group of people. We were super happy to have Virginia as our guide and if you are lucky, maybe you will get her as your guide too :) . Definitely do this tour if you love trying new foods.
