Are you looking for the best food tour in Rome? If you're as interested in food as you are the Vatican Museums, this is one of the best Rome tours for you. Embark on a food tour in Trastevere that offers an excellent introduction to one of the best foodie districts in Rome.
Walking around the Eternal City is an excellent way to work up an appetite; a food tour is the best way to end your day of sightseeing. Led by a local foodie guide, visit some of our favorite restaurants and trattorie in Rome. This 3-hour tour includes:
Remember, come hungry!
Monday to Saturday
At this stop, learn more the history of bakeries, or forni, in Rome. Get acquainted with a major part of Roman culinary tradition by ordering a hot square of pizza bianca for lunch. In Rome, people line up for these olive oil flat breads stuffed with prosciutto, parmesan and rocket. As opposed to red pizza served by the slice (al taglio), pizza bianca is not what most people associate with pizza. After you've tasted this treat, you'll understand how pizza need not have sauce or cheese to be delicious. Pizza bianca is a piece of chewy and crispy culinary heaven.
While a sit-down meal of creamy carbonara accompanied by copious amounts of Sangiovese is more likely associated with the best Italian fare, street food is nothing to sneeze at. Some of the most delicious cuisine in Rome includes quick and casual street food. From deconstructed pizza sandwiches at Trapizzino to traditionally fried filetto di baccala at DarFilettaro’s near the Campo de' Fiori district, Rome street food is hard to beat. In the spirit of experiencing the joy of Roman street fare, enjoy a stop at one of our favorite local spots.
An evening food tour in Rome isn’t complete without a stop for a multi-course Roman dinner. Sit down and relax in a friendly local restaurant and sample an antipasto starter, tastes of two popular Roman pastas, a traditional meat dish, and wine. No Italian dinner is complete without a digestivo to wash things down and help you digest your meal. Limoncello will be served at the end of your meal and only then will you feel like a true paesano. As opposed to the other stops on this walking food tour in Rome, this is your chance to rest your feet, enjoy your dinner and learn more about what makes the Eternal City so special when it comes to dining.
You didn't think we'd finish a food tour without gelato, did you? If you've been to Italy, regardless of the time of year, you'll know how important it is to end the evening with a gelato. It's a staple food for Italians (and certainly a staple for The Roman Guy team). Learn how to spot good quality gelato from ones with additives and try some new flavors. From caffè to fragola to pistacchio, there's a gelato flavor for everyone. Oh, and did we mention.... its organic too!
Piazza Farnese - near the fountain on the right hand side (when facing Palazzo Farnese building). Our guide will be holding a sign with "The Roman Guy" written on it.
