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.

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.

Loved this tour. Lots of fun seeing the less touristy side of Rome, as frequent visitors to Rome, we now feel as though we have a new neighbourhood which we will return to. Insightful info, delicious food, definitely worthwhile. Kids loved it too.

Saw the reviews on this and decided to sign up even though not foodies. The BEST part of our trip to ITALY! HIghly recommend this as it take you away from the tourist parts of Rome and you get to experience and eat like a local Luca was are gastro- guide and took us from trying balsamic vinegar, to gelato and everything in between. Small group tour that starts as strangers and ends as friends- hard to be strangers when you eat together
