A step into street food heaven…

Rome is known for having some of the country’s best-loved street food. From ancient classics like supplí – fried risotto balls oozing with fresh mozzarella cheese, to the trendy Trappizino – a hybrid of pizza and calzone – you will enjoy them all! 

This fun food experience will give you a taste of daily life in Trastevere, a popular bar and restaurant district that has managed to cling on to its traditional roots. You’ll indulge in the city’s best street food at places the locals still cherish. Plus we introduce you to the professional chefs, bakers and butchers behind these classic eats so you can hear the stories behind the food you try.

If you’re looking for an authentic taste of Roman cuisine and culture, join us on this delicious afternoon experience. 

*Formerly known as Trastevere for Foodies

Please note: this tour is in the same neighbourhood as Twilight Trastevere, so we recommend you join the Twilight Testaccio tour if you’re looking for an evening experience as well.

Tour stops, tastings and the number of tastings may change slightly to reflect seasonal produce, vendor opening hours and availability.

Toni was amazing – warm & friendly and authentically passionate about Rome’s food and culture. Really loved that she took us to family-owned places that are equally committed to and passionate about food and traditions – and places we never would have known about on our own. And she took us to a couple special places we researched before our trip and had hoped to visit while in Rome.

We had a great time – kids included! It was a fun-filled and delicious tour of many food stops that we would never have discovered on our own. Val was a terrific host and guide. Highly recommended!

- Rossu (TripAdvisor review)

We thoroughly enjoyed our Trastevere food tour with Chris. He was absolutely ideal with our group of 8 people so much so that our kids (14 and 17) are telling their friends it was one of their highlights of our 10 day stay in Italy.

- Roger (TripAdvisor review)

Valetina was a great guide! Kind and helpful, she did a great job educating us! It was great to see how close she was with all the stops we had. Would recommend to others!

- Derek M.

Luca did an exceptional job with the tour, talking in detail about food, history, and culture. We went to some fantastic places — some we have already gone back to for a second visit. Thanks Luca!
