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).

It was such such a great tour! All the food was delicious - we watched how to make a roman pizza, how to order it like a roman and then tasted it the can-not-stop-eating buffalo mozarella in a 100-yrs history shop surprisingly good kosher food all kinds of weird biscotti with weird names and after all, pasta and gelato. the tour guide gave very informative introductions of the tour, not only about the food itself, but also comparison with similar items in other regions, fun facts, neighborhood history and funny stories. Sorry I have difficulty in names but I remember the guide has a doctor degree in ancient coins, that probably made the trip with so much historical information. Anyway, love it and totally recommend to anyone who would like to travel to Rome.

Valeria was great, her exuberance and insights into roman cuisine was wonderful to hear and it was a real pleasure to have her as our tour guide. Hearing her knowledge into traditional roman dishes, ingredients and the growth of both roman and Italian cuisine was much more interesting than I had anticipated. The amount of food we received was ideal, we had the correct amount which left us able to continue tasting more and not leaving our stomachs overwhelmed. We later visited a couple of locations from the tour and we were not disappointed. Definitely would recommend travellers to take this tour. Thanks Valeria for a wonderful experience!
