Trastevere Food Tour

Kick off the 3-hour walking-tour in Piazza Campo de' Fiori, famous for its open-air market filled with appetizing cheeses, cold cuts, pasta and other traditional Italian delicacies. Accompanied by a local guide, discover this authentic market, which is probably the best possible place to experience the richness and diversity of Roman cuisine. Next, head to Trastevere, one of the most nonconformist areas of the country’s capital, by crossing Ponte Sisto. Upon arrival in Piazza di Santa Maria, a lively meeting place especially at night time, you’ll head to a genuine pizzeria and order a takeaway homemade pizza. There are so many varieties that choosing the toppings will be an arduous job! While you enjoy your succulent pizza, your guide will tell you about the legend of why the Margherita Pizza is named after Margaret of Savoy, who made this recipe famed. After devouring your pizza, you’ll continue the walking-tour and visit a suppli food stand. These delectable rice balls with cheese and tomato are definitely worth trying. Afterwards, your guide will lead you to one of the most popular ice-cream parlors in Trastevere, where you’ll eat a mouth-watering “gelato”. During the last part of the tour, you will enjoy a wine tasting in a typical tavern along with an assortment table of cheeses and prosciutto. The ideal way to conclude a foodie tour!
