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.

Domenico was outstanding, knowledgeable, fun and enthusiastic. He's known by the locals which is testament to being accepted as a local. I was delighted to find that we visited a deli that was part of a food programme I watched before going to Rome, a great surprise and the quality was outstanding. I would suggest adding in a coffee to the programme, perhaps at the Pasticceria. It's not Italy without coffee. The market visit was fun, lunch was underwhelming, 3 plates of pasta and average sauces. Wine was cheap and undrinkable. Otherwise an outstanding experience, my 12 year old daughter loved it. Go at the start of your trip so you can experience an untouristed side to Rome. 10 out of 10 Domenico.

This tour is a great way to enjoy the local cuisine and people. The walking tour was well laid out and not all tiring, since we were given the opportunity to sit and enjoy the sites at several intervals during the tour. Our guide was from the UK so there was no difficulty with the language at all. We enjoyed this tour very much.
