    What to Expect
    Our walking food tour of Rome explores traditional dishes and innovative recipes while walking through Monti neighborhood, an area renowned among Romans for its mixture of traditional life, represented for instance by the local artisans, and a vibrant food, arts and night-life scene. The tour starts with a tasting of white sparkling wine in one of the best wine bars of Rome. This is an occasion to talk about the Italian wine tradition while enjoying the atmosphere of this unique venue where shelves are packed with bottles coming from all over the country. We then will move to the very heart of the neighborhood, where we’ll enjoy samples of local pizza bianca (sounds like pizza but it is not quite the same thing), local cheese and cold cuts, paired with excellent local wine.

    Walking through the narrow with views of the Colosseum or the Forum, and while discovering how centuries of history are still alive in the area, we will sample home-made pasta, a carpaccio of cod fish, a typical ingredient of Roman cuisine revisited by a chef who has been working in a Michelin-star restaurant before opening his own tiny restaurant. Much more is expecting you during our food tour, where we offer only the finest and most authentic food and wine to guarantee a areal culinary experience where only locals go, going beyond the beaten path looking for the unexplored, unexpected, extraordinary and tastiest perspective of Rome and of Roman cuisine.

    Imagine yourself walking down the tiny alleys of Rome and, being a local, knowing every corner of the city. Stop by your favourite coffee place, greet the fruit seller at the local farm market and have lunch at your chef friend’s restaurant, who always reserves the best table for you. That’s a taste of what your experience will be.

    This was my first trip to Rome. So much history and culture here that deserves so much respect. The Monti district is a slice of pleasant surprises with interesting shops and restaurants. It is a quaint area with so much to offer in the variety of restaurants and good wine.
