Trastevere Food Tour

Summary

Rome is known not only for its lifestyle, but also for having one of the most delectable cuisines in Italy. Your senses will explode as you sample the best food Rome has to offer in fantastic and diverse venues

We’ll start our journey from the Tiber Island, then travel through the Jewish Ghetto to taste the famous Jewish artichokes of Rome and other specialties while learning how the famous ghetto evolved over the centuries. Then we’ll make our way to Campo de’ Fiori, one of the oldest squares in Rome, for some more delicious tastings. Next, we’ll head across the Tiber River to discover one of Rome’s best-kept secrets: Trastevere, a charming neighborhood with ivy-coated buildings and cobblestone streets. You will walk down the winding alleys of the historical city center with a local Roman guide who will help you pick out the best Italian delights. This moving feast will allow you to try typical Italian pizza, pasta, salami, cheese, and other local dishes, and finish off the evening with a delicious Italian gelato. You’ll also enjoy some of Italy’s best wines to complete this authentic Italian experience!

This tour also gives you the opportunity to chat with our expert foodie guide in order to gain a better understanding of Italian culture and traditions and experience life as the Romans do on a typical evening out. We recommend beginning this tour in the late afternoon (4:30 PM in the winter / 5:30 PM in the summer) so the food samples, wine tastings, and sit-down meal can serve as an amazing dinner.

    My husband and I, along with our adult daughter, did a private walking food tour. It was amazing. Sara, our guide, was very personable and expertly introduced us to a delicious variety of local favorites. We tasted the fried artichokes in the Jewish Ghetto (amazing), pizzas, cheeses, fried cod, and meats. We ended up at a Trastevere restaurant for a meal of capers salad, prosciutto, and melon, cacio e Pepe, and tripe. Wine was included at some of the stops. What a great way to learn about various areas of Rome, culture, and history through food! Loved this tour!
