After heading to the meeting spot for the 5:30pm departure time, your group will depart on this 4 hour walking tour from the most vibrant and dynamic square in Rome: Campo de’ Fiori. Here, among bustling cafés and street musicians you will meet your guide. Just in time for the Italian 'aperitivo' you will be tasting a selection of artisanal Italian salamis, so special they have protected geographical indication (PGI). This will be accompanied of course by your first taste on this excursion of the country’s notoriously fine wine.

As you stroll through the city center, your guide will be divulging the strange and wonderful history of the area before you taste your next culinary delight: cheese. The historic shop we will be visiting also contains only PGI protected cheeses of various Italian origins and will be complimented by a carefully selected wine. They will also be providing us with a must try Roman specialty: fried salted cod or ‘baccalà fritto’.

Immersion into local cuisine will continue with a tasting of two other typically Roman foods: pizza ‘at the slice’ and supplì. Your guide will be taking you to two eateries that specialize in the production of these scrumptious Italian foods, where these new tastes and aromas will be an unforgettable novelty for your palate.

After a walk to digest these tasty delicacies, you will almost be ready for supper in one of the coziest restaurants in Trastevere. Known for the quality of its food, this quarter is considered to have the best restaurants in Rome. Here, your group will be tasting an exquisite Roman antipasto and two first courses, accompanied by two different Italian wines of protected production and origin. Finally you will finish the tour in Trastevere by trying some delicious locally made Italian ice cream in flavors typical of this famous ice cream shop or ‘gelateria’. Your tour will then be concluded around 9:30pm.

By the end of the tour, not only will you feel content and full of excellent food and wine, you will have immersed yourself in Italian cuisine, a fundamental part of life in Rome. You will feel far more a part of the city than you ever would have imagined you could be.

My family had a fantastic evening on a food tour with Adrian. We couldn't have asked for a better guide - knowledgeable, fun and very personable. We learned lots of interesting stories about Roman history and 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!!!

My wife and I took this tour 4 hours after landing in Rome and it was awesome. Adrian (sp?) was a fantastic guide, giving us enough history to keep us interested but never overwhelming. The tour really gave us a great sense of the city and the confidence to navigate it ourselves the following days.

We toured several different neighborhoods, tried many different wines, cheeses and then finished up with a sit down dinner. Our group was wonderful and we really got the chance to connect with everyone due to the small size. Would definitely recommend!
