Dine like a local in Rome’s original foodie neighbourhood…
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 original foodie neighbourhood? Testaccio is not only home to the famous quinto quarto (offal) that Rome is renowned for, it’s also where you’ll escape the tourist crowds and get a glimpse of real daily life.
Our movable feast through Testaccio is perfect for the adventurous foodie who’s looking to try something that pushes the boundaries beyond pizza and pasta. We take to you around this historic neighbourhood as the sun sets and introduce you to some of its best-kept secrets, including a stylish eatery with stunning views over Monte dei Cocci and a retractable roof that opens up on starry nights.
Our local guides will regale you with personal stories, fascinating history, and a unique glimpse into local Roman life. Plus, as this is an evening food tour, you can expect plenty of wine and spirits along the way! Why sit down to dinner when you can eat, learn and meet the locals all in one night?
Note: this tour is in the same neighbourhood as the Taste of Testaccio food tour and has some similarities, so we suggest joining the Trastevere Street Eats tour if you’re looking for a daytime experience as well.
Our trapizzino stop is closed on Mondays so we visit an alternative stop.
Tour stops, tastings and number of tastings may change slightly to reflect seasonal produce, vendor opening hours and availability.
