Return Details

Trastevere, Rome, Metropolitan City of Rome, Italy
Meet your guide in front of Ristorante La Carbonara in Rome’s Campo de’ Fiori at 5:15pm to start your 5:30pm walking tour. With your guide and group together, you’ll then set off on foot to discover the food of Rome.

Work your way past the lively pavement cafes and buskers, and explore the city center while your guide regales you with stories of Roman history and food. Stop for a classic aperitivo of wine and artisan salami, and learn about the salami’s PGI (protected geographical indication), which is also a hallmark of quality Italian food.

Sample more PGI produce at a historical cheese shop, and pair the cheese with another wine. You’ll also try a signature Rome dish of baccalà fritto, which is a tasty, salted cod. Visit two other eateries to chow down on crispy pizza — ordered by the slice — and sample supplì, the melt-in-the-mouth morsels of fried risotto rice that are typical Roman fare.

After a short walk to work off the food so far, you’ll take a seat in a cozy Trastevere restaurant for a light supper. Tuck into traditional Roman antipasto and two primi (first course) dishes, washed down with two varietals of wine. Finally, you’ll head outside to a gelateria to finish on a high note — with gelato, of course. Your tour ends around 9:30pm, outside the gelateria.

My family had a fantastic evening on a food tour with Adrian. We couldn't have asked for a better guide - knowledgeable, fun & very personable. We learned lots of interesting stories about Roman history & got to sample delicious food and wine at some little hole-in-the-wall eateries we would have normally overlooked. Great fun with the group and certainly a highlight of our trip! Just don't eat anything leading up to this tour - you certainly won't leave hungry 😁

We thoroughly enjoyed our walk from the Campo de Fiore throughout the beautiful vias of Roma. Tasting all along the way! Adriano was our Guide and our group was a great mix of Europe, US and Canada. If you want to have some fun while tasting a bit of Rome and sampling the wines of the region this is the way to go!!!

I good day to eat and find out more about the city when travelling alone. The guide was good and friendly though a little more detail about the food would have been appreciated. The me at cheese pasta rice balls gelato and wine were good. The battered fish and battered courgette flowers were stodgy. A different fish course and some vegetables would have been nice.good company

don't expect good food you will find it elsewere

The food was more than disappointing, the fried fish and rice were so dry and tasteless that most people did not finish it. The pasta was below medicore the same goes to the gellato. I just got the impression that the guide gets paid from tourist traps who did not make any effort. 80 € per person are way too much for bad food. It will be a wiser decision to pay for your own food and eat at least 2-3 times for this sum. The guide has also to improve his English at times it was hard to follow his stories. I think he really had no clue what he was talking about.
