Knowing the Roman food tradition is knowing the Romans. Food is such a in-depth part of the capital’s soul and such a diverse and contaminated scene that is simply impossible not to be fascinated by it.
Discover the real Roman food traditions and taste only the best, original, superb roman flavours as you discover two of the most charming district of Rome with a local guide.
From the street food treats, like decadent deep-fried stuffed seasonal vegetables and sauce-dripping typical pasta dishes, the whole city is a soul-comforting festival of tantalizing tastes. And Romans simply love to share their delicious fare!
You will start off with the famous “Espresso e Cornetto” to learn the Italian tradition behind the “brown gold” and why and Espresso is so important to them.
Then off to walk through the streets of the most local and typical districts of Rome, the settlement of ancient Roman working classes and today the most bohemian, animated colorful and fragrant district.
Follow your tour guide for a unique insider’s view of the city’s vibrant soul, a “sniff” of its appetizing scents, and delicious morsels of local specialties. Stroll down charming cobblestone-paved streets to Campo de’ Fiori, a delightful square filled with sparkle that on weekday mornings hosts a typical open-air market, a great place to check out the daily fresh produce and listen to the colorful voices bargaining.
Let your guide lead you to the ancient fornai (bakeries) and botteghe (local delis), browse through the shops, lose yourself among aromas and sensational flavours. Savour Rome’s signature snack, like scrumptious pizza bianca romana, crispy fragrant ciambelline al vino, supplì, and much more as you meet the locals and share their stories, because there is not better way to become friends than in front of a table full of specialties as you toast with some “vino de’ li’ Castelli” (wine from the hills north of the city).
