Know More about this tour

After heading to the meeting spot for the 5:30pm departure time, your group will depart on this 4 hour walking tour from the most vibrant and dynamic square in Rome: Campo de’ Fiori. Here, among bustling cafés and street musicians you will meet your guide. Just in time for the Italian 'aperitivo' you will be tasting a selection of artisanal Italian salamis, so special they have protected geographical indication (PGI). This will be accompanied of course by your first taste on this excursion of the country’s notoriously fine wine.

As you stroll through the city center, your guide will be divulging the strange and wonderful history of the area before you taste your next culinary delight: cheese. The historic shop we will be visiting also contains only PGI protected cheeses of various Italian origins and will be complimented by a carefully selected wine. They will also be providing us with a must try Roman specialty: fried salted cod or ‘baccalà fritto’.

Immersion into local cuisine will continue with a tasting of two other typically Roman foods: pizza ‘at the slice’ and supplì. Your guide will be taking you to two eateries that specialize in the production of these scrumptious Italian foods, where these new tastes and aromas will be an unforgettable novelty for your palate.

After a walk to digest these tasty delicacies, you will almost be ready for supper in one of the coziest restaurants in Trastevere. Known for the quality of its food, this quarter is considered to have the best restaurants in Rome. Here, your group will be tasting an exquisite Roman antipasto and two first courses, accompanied by two different Italian wines of protected production and origin. Finally you will finish the tour in Trastevere by trying some delicious locally made Italian ice cream in flavors typical of this famous ice cream shop or ‘gelateria’. Your tour will then be concluded around 9:30pm.

By the end of the tour, not only will you feel content and full of excellent food and wine, you will have immersed yourself in Italian cuisine, a fundamental part of life in Rome. You will feel far more a part of the city than you ever would have imagined you could be.

  • Amazing variety of food and wine, with information on each. My wallet was stolen by a pickpocket just before this tour. This will be my last time in this city of thieves.

  • Fantastic tour, lots of food and wine, so come hungry. I did not eat before and still was full by the end, could not finish the pasta tastings. The guide was great, very knowledgeable and pointed out interesting historical sites along the way. Highly recommended.

  • Marcello was a very nice, joyful and friendly guide. He made all in our group feel well. We ate us from Campo di fiori to Trastevere and we were really full, almost bursting after four hours. A lot of really good wine too! Highly recommended!

  • This tour was by far the best part of our Rome experience! Alfredo was an amazing guide and the food, wine and walk around that part of Rome was the complete package.

  • Tour was literally 4 hours long!! Started with an amazing Italian wine and cheese tasting followed by street food. Cold cuts and more wine were next and this gave more real Italian flavours! Pizza al forno a legna was incredible to end with pasta and more house wine. Artesan gelato closed the night!!!!

    Maria, our guide, was also amazing and charming...she made sure everyone was well taken care of! We also met lovely people. Instructions to get to the meeting point were clear and easy to follow!!

    When in Rome, I'd say it 's a must! Will take you thru beautiful areas from Campo di Fiori, Jewish ghetto and Trastevere... a way of peeking into real Italian culture!

  • Easily our favorite tour! We sampled so many foods from some of the top shops. Our guide was phenomenal! So friendly, knowledgeable and funny. We came starving and left not being able to eat another bite.

  • Excellent tour, highly recommend! Our tour guide Marcello was amazing, very friendly, and has a passion for food and sharing Roman culture with visitors. We sampled various cheeses, meats from a family shop, fried cod, margarita pizza, fried pumpkin flowers with cheese and anchovies, suppli, spaghetti cacio e pepe, and amatriciana pasta, and delicious fresh gelato, and of course lots of red and white wine. It was a wonderful way to spend an evening, I'm so glad we signed up for this tour! I would definitely do this tour again, it was the highlight of our trip!

  • Our guide was Marcello and he did an excellent job of getting us around and describing the various places we went to. Great tour for someone who likes food and wine the group was great and everyone got along. Highly recommend

  • One of the best food tours I've been on. The tour guide was amazing as was the food and wine. We were brought to the best, local spots and learned the history of each Roman delicacy that we were enjoying. A GREAT value - we ate our money's worth not even halfway through the tour! I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone visiting Rome.

  • Excellent!! The food and wine tour was beyond our expectations. Alfredo was the best guide we could hope for. His knowledge of history and culture of Roma and Italy are awesome. He is very friendly and fun. He is definitely a great foodie that will take you to local places where you'll enjoy delicious food and wine and also learn a few interesting things. Go hungry, it's a lot of food to enjoy. This tour was the highlight of our vacation in Rome. A must do.
