Description

    Rome is filled with plenty of authentic and delicious restaurants, yet we still hear horror stories about 50€ plates of pasta, microwaved food and tourists traps.  We highly recommend our food tour so you can take the guess work out of your stay and ensure yourself some authentic eats. 

    On this tour, we'll choose the restaurant and the food!  All you have to do is follow our local guide from place to place while they entertain you with anecdotes about local Roman cuisine.  Like any Roman meal, libations are included!

     

    Rome's Foodie Neighborhoods (Campo de' Fiori, Trastevere & Jewish Ghetto)

    The Trastevere "Locals" Food Tour in Rome is an excellent way to see Rome's foodie neighborhoods. We start in the area around the famous Campo de' Fiori where you'll be shown some amazing places we doubt you'd be able to find on your own. Your Roman food tour begins with a glass of Italian Prosecco or wine, after which you'll learn the true meaning of “Aperitivo”.

    The Italian culinary exploration will continue across the Ponte Sisto bridge into Trastevere, a popular Roman neighborhood. This foodie neighborhood is home to hundreds of outstanding Roman restaurants, where you will eat your way through a myriad of meats & cheeses, pizza and local Roman pasta dishes. 

    Your evening will culminate walking with your guide through the Jewish Ghetto learning about some of the oldest culinary traditions in Rome.  Our last stop is an artiginal gelateria where you will sample a few flavors and have have a "cono" or cup of gelato! 

     

    Roman Restaurants

    Among many other stops, you'll visit a farm to table "aperitivo" spot serving amazing finger foods that will delight the senses. We'll also visit a Roman "Piazza al Taglio" shop where you'll see how they cut and weigh pizza for purchase.  Even a sit down Roman restaurant acclaimed for its Authentic Roman Cuisine.  We are normally able to reserve outdoor seating in this beautiful piazza so we can dine "Al Fresco"

     

    A Foodie Experience

    This particular Italian food tour focuses on the enjoyment of a typical Italian, or Roman, dinner. Hearing about Italian art and history all day definitely works up an appetite, so this tour is well deserved after a day of walking around the Eternal City. Light walks between each popular Roman food stop will definitely keep that metabolism going as you fill up on exceptional traditional Italian food & drink!

    This food tour in Rome takes you through the courses and finishes with an exceptional dessert. You have been warned, come only with an empty stomach!

    There is plenty of food to fill up even the above average eater on this tour.  If you have food allergies or dietary restrictions we will do our best to accommodate.  Please email us after you book and we will make notes so your guide knows.  If you'd like to be certain before booking, email us at [email protected] or [email protected]

    You may see this tour on our The Roman Guy website or The Roman Foodie website.  Both tours and websites are one and the same so feel free to book on either!
