Taste of Testaccio Guide

Taste of Testaccio Food Tour Guide

Testaccio is the original foodie neighbourhood of Rome and where cucina Romana (Roman cuisine) was born. It is no coincidence that it’s known to Romans as the “heart of Rome”. Walking and eating with us through the streets of Testaccio lets you experience Rome like a local, in a neighbourhood where people actually live, eat and shop.
