About Rome’s Testaccio Neighborhood

Cucina romana – Roman cuisine – was born in Testaccio. So where better to eat your way through all that Rome has to offer than the city’s most foodie neighborhood? Testaccio is not only home to the famous quinto quarto (offal) that Rome is renowned for; it’s also the place where you’ll get away from the tourist crowds to sample cheeses, meats, vegetables and even beers that you’ve probably never heard of!

About our Testaccio Supper Stroll

Our 3-hour evening tour of Testaccio is perfect for the adventurous foodie, looking to try something that pushes the boundaries beyond pizza and pasta… We stop at 7 different vendors for around 10 unique, authentic food tastings. Plus, you can expect plenty of wine, spirits and beer along the way – this tour is for adults only!

Just like our popular Taste of Testaccio daytime tour and Twilight Trastevere evening tour, our new evening tour of Testaccio isn’t just about tasting food and drinks. Our local guides will also regale you with personal stories, fascinating history, and a unique glimpse into Roman life.
