Some Say We Have the Best Food Tours in Rome


Experience Rome Like a Local

From ancient monuments and iconic museums to theatre and shopping (and oh, the amazing food!), Rome is a fascinating city with no limits to what you can see or do. But when it comes to food, most guidebooks and bloggers will send you directly to touristy spots. The views and people watching might be nice, but who wants to travel all the way to Rome for a touristy dish that you can get anywhere in the world?

As easy as it is to get a great meal in Rome, it is just as easy to sit down in a crowded touristy restaurant and eat a pre-made or even frozen dish warmed in a microwave. Joining a walking food and wine tour of Rome is one of the best ways to experience the breadth of Rome’s food culture and to ensure you are eating authentic Roman dishes at restaurants and food venues frequented by locals!

Our entertaining local food tour guides walk you through the backstreets of Rome and share a taste of local life with you – through authentic dishes, drinks and entertaining stories about the neighborhood’s history and the food itself. Each neighborhood in Rome has its own signature flavors that you must taste, from the Pizza Bianca in Trastevere to Suppli in Testaccio. Our food tours in Rome are a great way of discovering these amazing bites on the backstreets of Rome, far from the tourist traps.

We’re confident that not only will you leave our Rome food tours stuffed, but also ready to explore Rome with the confidence of the local, like a true Roman insider.
