Overview
An expert guide will accompany you on a 4 hour walking tour in the heart of the historic food center of Rome, from Campo de’ Fiori to Trastevere where you will taste the best of Italian cuisine. Your small-group (maximum size of 16) will be stopping in local eateries that produce only the highest quality traditional foods and serve only excellent Italian wines before heading to a a cozy Roman 'trattoria' for a superb locally sourced, mouth watering supper.
Highlights
  • Explore Campo de’ Fiori and Trastevere with a native speaker
  • Taste traditional dishes including salt cod, pizza, salami, and more
  • Steer clear of tourist spots with dinner in a cozy restaurant in Trastevere
  • Finish the walking tour with gelato
What to Expect
Meet your guide in Campo de’ Fiori in front of Ristorante La Carbonara for this small group food and wine tasting tour of Rome. Explore the city center, passing vibrant cafes and buskers, while listening to your guide sharing stories of Roman food and history. The first stop is for classic aperitivo, including wine and artisan salami. Learn about the salami’s protected geographical indication, or PGI, an important element of food in Italy. Taste more PGI products at a charming cheese shop, then sample the traditional Roman dish of baccalà fritto, or fried salt cod, pizza ordered by the slice, and supplì, fried risotto balls. After a short walk to Trastevere, settle into a cozy restaurant for a light dinner. Snack on traditional Roman antipasto and two primi, or first course dishes, alongside two different types of wine. The final stop is a gelateria where you taste rich, creamy gelato in the flavor of your choice.

Our guide was very good and knowledgeable of the wines, food and history. We are glad that we did this tour. At the end of the tour, we were provided with a list of good restaurants to try out in Rome.

Great way to learn about the local culture through food and wine. You will make friends with others in the group and will see places that are not the usual "tourist traps".

I booked about a month before flying out. I didn’t want to deal with inconsistent internet service nor did I want to make credit card transactions over the net in another country. I was just being precautious.
