Rome Food Discovery

A privately guided food tour of Rome’s historic center.

Our historic center neighborhood passeggiata introduces food lovers to an area of Rome located within the Piazza Navona, Pantheon and Campo de’ Fiori triangle.

In this central part of the Eternal City, food lovers are guided by local food experts who focus on showcasing only small, family-run businesses, and who love creating friendly connections between travelers and locals.

During the walk guests taste delectable neighborhood specialties, savoring the local lifestyle, and learning about the area’s food traditions and trends.

Sweet and savory tasting adventures in Rome’s Centro Storico may end toasting to la dolce vita with a glass of wine or with a flight of craft beers

    We enjoyed a wonderful tour of Rome. We visited a neighborhood food market and several local food merchants, including a bakery, a pizza place, and a cheese and prosciutto store. Our guide was very knowledgeable about food, history, and traditions. Highly recommended!
