First stop is Campo de' Fiori to explore its famous food market – popular with locals and tourists alike. Browse the heaving market stalls with your guide, admiring artistically arranged stands of vegetables, cheeses and meats, while soaking up the market’s friendly ambiance. Your guide will introduce you to some of the traders here, who’ll happily let you sample some of their high-quality offerings.
A large concentration of the capital’s restaurants and bars are found in the picturesque cobblestone streets of Trastevere – a vibrant neighborhood where bustling eateries spill outside into its pretty piazzas. On a stroll through this eclectic end of town, your guide will show off some of the local’s firm favorites -- sample a classic Roman pasta dish inside a top restaurant and then stop at a café to try out the best pizza bianca (tomato-free pizza) in town. Taste fresh mozzarella with locally cured salami, and then stop at Fata Margana gelaterie for an artisan gelato – the Italian’s far superior answer to ice cream!
Continue your tour through Rome’s Jewish Ghetto, an equally bohemian neighborhood -- just south of the city’s historic center. Hunt out the ghetto’s most popular delicatessens and grocery stores that are peppered throughout the streets, sandwiched between interesting artisan studios and vintage shops. Try suppli – every Roman’s favorite fried risotto ball – and then sample some of the staples of Italian Jewish cuisine, like fried artichokes and codfish in Piazza della Cinque Scole.
After discovering the best foodie haunts around Trastevere, Campo de' Fiori and the Jewish Ghetto, your tour ends in San Cosimato Square (Trastevere).

Danielle, our guide, was terrific. The tour itself was well planned and fun, even for my 2 teenage granddaughters. The group was small so that we interacted rather than just following a guide. The 5 o'clock tour turned into dinner for us that evening. The choice of foods was great and we even cooked 2 of the meals when we returned home.

Wonderful. Informative. This takes you to places you could not find on your own. Our guide was great and treated us like family. Two other couples had to reschedule and we were her only clients. She did not try to shorten or rush the tour. She explained Roman food and helped us look for quality in pasta, gelato, pizza, mozzarella and threw in some history along the way. This was one of the most fun things we did in Rome. Don't miss it!
