Know More about this tour

Your Rome food walking tour takes you off the beaten tourist path to the historic Roman neighborhood called Testaccio, and ideal place to get a real taste of Rome. Savor its delicious food, soak in its vibrant culture, and meet the people who keep so many wonderful food traditions alive.

After meeting your expert guide, head off to discover the culinary gems around this must-see foodie district. As you walk, hear tales of Rome's lesser-known history from your guide, and see sights that many tourist maps miss, such as Rome's only pyramid and the Protestant Cemetery, where the poet John Keats is buried.

While shopping, your guide will introduce you to some of the more colorful characters who work there. Make your own bruschetta and try real buffalo mozzarella at the famous Testaccio Market.

Continue your tour to one of the neighborhood's best kept secrets, Trappizino, to try suppli, every Roman's favorite fried rice ball. Sample some of Rome's best pasta along with wine at one of Rome's best restaurants for authentic Roman cuisine.

  • Wonderful food tour lots of interesting facts and tips about this area of Rome. Nice food.
    Good value and would reccomend.

  • A wonderful and original foodie tour of Trastevere in Rome, a local neighbourhood that has a plethora of dining treats. Our guide expertly guided us through the traditional foods of Rome and where to find them. The tastings were extensive, you are definitely not going to leave the afternoon hungry. Highly recommend this tour, definitely do this one!

  • fabulous, took us off the beaten track with some historical inclusions

  • This was a fabulous way to experience the real culture of Rome. My daughter will be studying in Rome for 4 months and while she is there she will see all the significant sites and so we wanted something different. Our tour guide, Dominico, was awesome! He shared wonderful tips, customs, a little bit of the language, etc. and it all made Rome more welcoming and personal. We were there during a slower tour time January and so our numbers for the tour were small, but he used that opportunity to find out more about us and then relate it to what our Rome interests were. The stops were all very nice, the shop keepers were very friendly and inviting and the food was all great! For those four hours we felt less like tourist and more like we were living there... He shared a lot of history and small things about traditions that I have not gotten in other tours. We had a lot of fun and did not go away hungry for sure!

  • it was great - our tour guide was Luca and he was entertaining and fun to spend the day with. He took us to 9 different places - we learned about the food but also a lot about Rome. He also gave us good recommendations on places to eat. This trip is highly recommended and Luca was a star!

  • This was one of my favorite food tours I have been on!

  • Wonderful tour, Mimo was friendly, engaging and very knowledgeable and the food: fabulous!!!

  • This was the very best food walking tour we have ever had in any country that we have been in! If you are in Rome you must do this tour and you must have Domenico Scola be your tour guide. Domenico knows everyone!, they all love him and this shows in the great service the vendors provided us. Domenico loves what he does and he provided us with really great food and history information...this guy knows good food and the best places to get it. You will walk away wanting to dive into Roman food.

  • Absolutely loved this tour. Domenico shared his passion for Rome, and his energy was infectious. This tour was exactly what I wanted and surpassed what I expected. It was like touring a local part of Rome with an old friend. He was so knowledgeable and well-spoken, and knew just about everyone in the area. You could tell he was very loved and respected in the community, and that was comforting. If you love food and are in Rome, I highly recommend this tour! Its focus is food, but you really gain the feeling of being a local as with food comes history and community. Book this tour!

  • This was a delightful experience. One of the highlights of my trip.
