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.
Visit the legendary Barberini pastry shop to try its mouth-watering Italian pastries that have been sold for over 50 years. Then, browse gourmet produce at a bustling local food market. 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.
Further highlights include visits to the Giolitti Caffe and Gelateria, where artisan gelato has been made for over a century. Next stop is fantastic Volpetti cheese shop, home to 150 regional cheeses.
After eating your way around Rome's foodie heaven, you'll end up two blocks from where your tour began, approximately a 5-minute walk to all major public transport options.

The food tour was a lot of fun. I have been recommending it to our friends and relatives. The tour guide was knowledgeable, enjoyable, and engaging.

Loved this. We met at an easy to find meeting place and Sebastiana, our guide, gave us a brief rundown of the history of Testacchio and a quick timetable of our tour. Off we went! We love our food and we always try to do a food tour on the first day in any new place, it gives you ideas of good restaurants to try and what to avoid. Sebastiana is definitely a foodie, she was so enthusiastic about her home area and took us to some wonderful bakeries, delicatessens, restaurants etc where were tried local produce. She gave us lots of information about Roman food and the Italian culture and, a nice surprise, we also visited the non-Catholic cemetery where Keats and Shelley are buried. This was a lovely tour, at a good pace for everyone, a sit down lunch in the middle, and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. Definite a must-do and very good value for money!
