Pizza & Gelato

A privately guided tasting tour featuring some of Rome’s best pizza and gelato.

You can never go wrong with pizza and gelato: two of Italy’s favorite foods.

During our pizza & gelato walk, food lovers guided by our local food expert, are introduced to the many faces of pizza in Rome, with all kinds of toppings as well as signature gelato flavors, in a fun collective experience for all ages. 

On our leisurely passeggiata between tastings, we discuss the difference between thin-crust Roman style and classic Neapolitan pies, as well as share tips on where to find the best in town.

We also share tools to notice the differences between commercial and proper gelato, in order to consume only quality products.

Alternating between pizzas and cones or cups of gelato, guests come away with a deeper understanding of the wide variety offered in the Eternal City.
