Rome is typically known first of all for its historical and architectonical treasures like the Colosseum or the Pantheon. On our tour we will show you a different side of the eternal city – exploring the Campo de’ Fiori, Ghetto and Trastevere areas you will learn what it is like to delight your palate like a true Roman citizen.
Our 3-hours tour starts in Campo de’ Fiori – in a typical delicatessen store, where our guide will introduce you to the fascinating world of Italian cuisine while you enjoy your breakfast with a brioche ( or cornetto -the Italian version of the French croissant) followed by a true Italian cappuccino.
The guide will then accompany you to the Campo de' Fiori market – a colorful mix of flavours, scents, freshly picked fruit and vegetables, cheese and many more.
Foodies can’t of course explore Rome without a compulsory stop for a slice of pizza – in Rome it is served thin, contrarily to what you may find for example in Naples. Pizza bianca ( white pizza = without tomato) or pizza rossa ( red pizza = with tomato) – we will stop in a local take-away snack shop/ pizzeria where you can select your preferred slice. Alternatively, if you wish to be a true Roman for one day we recommend tasting the supplì instead - it is an Italian snack consisting of a ball of rice with tomato sauce, typical of the Lazio region.
Step by step we will now walk towards the Ghetto area – here you will find out that some of the most traditional Roman dishes actually originated from the fusion of the Jewish and Roman traditions passed on for generations. A perfect example would be the so-called carciofi alla giudia – deep fried artichokes which we recommend tasting during your stay in Rome.
Crossing one of the most ancient bridges in the city you will now reach the Trastevere district – once a working-class area it is now among the most charming and colorful areas of Rome and a real food mine. Filled with pizzeria, cafès, restaurants, trattorias small shops it’s a perfect location for a foodie journey. Like a true Roman citizen you will stop for a pasta dish - in Rome when you say pasta you mean Carbonara ( made with egg, cheese, bacon and pepper), Amatriciana ( with the typical sauce based on guanciale, pecorino cheese from Amatrice, tomato and pepper) or Cacio & Pepe ( meaning basically cheese and pepper).
Once our culinary exploration is over we recommend tasting a typical artisan gelato ( ice cream) - one of the most tasty and healthy desserts in Italy.
