Food Tour of Rome: Culinary Stroll

Rome might be famous for its artistic and historical wonder, but the eternal city has another spectacular tradition that cannot be overlooked: cuisine. Start the day with a morning coffee of your choice at one of Rome’s most beloved cafés while our local food and wine expert explains the history and secrets of Italian made coffee. This tour is about exploring food in a cultural context. We’ll visit a market and learn about seasonal foods and also the local cucina povera. We’ll stop in at a local forno, where bread has been made by the same family for decades, to try some pizza bianca. A visit to the Jewish Ghetto will allow us to discover how a culture that has been a part of Rome for hundreds of years still has a tremendous influence on the cuisine of the city today, while sampling either carciofi alla giudia or fritti misti depending on the season. Next comes a stop in a cheese shop to taste artisanal cheeses accompanied by both white and red wine. After a morning filled with trying local foods, pasties, olive oil and more, we’ll finish off this delicious and delectable tour with a gelato. Our mission is to serve our guests the best local, organic and seasonal foods made with fine ingredients, while also supporting local producers and farmers, prompting us to choose our tour locations based on relationships with providers who guarantee our guests will experience the best in Roman food culture. After our tour, we’ll be happy to suggest a local trattoria for lunch.
