An introduction to Roman food favourites…
Known to locals as the “Heart of Rome”, Testaccio is the city’s original foodie neighbourhood and where cucina Romana (Roman cuisine) was born. Our 4-hour walking food tour lets you experience Rome like a local, in an authentic neighbourhood where people still live, eat and shop.
Escape the crowds and get a real glimpse of daily life while tasting the best of what the city has to offer. You’ll visit our local market and meet the vendors who have been there for generations, taste the most delicious pasta in the neighbourhood, and sample everything from a traditional antipasto to a typical Roman street food snack.
Along the way your local guide will give you a fascinating insight into Rome’s culture and history. You’ll also discover some of the city’s most fascinating landmarks, like the ancient Pyramid of Cestius and John Keats’ mysterious tomb.
There is no better way to really experience Rome like a local than on our Taste of Testaccio Food Tour.
Please note: this tour is in the same neighbourhood as our Twilight Testaccio tour and has some similarities. If you’d also like to join one of our evening experiences as well, we recommend you choose the Twilight Trastevere tour.
Tour stops, tastings and number of tastings may change slightly to reflect seasonal produce, vendor opening hours and availability.
