Street Food in Rome

A privately guided tasting tour of Rome’s street food.

In Rome’s growing street food scene there’s a strong impulse to evolve from the ubiquitous choice of portable snacks.

On our walking street food adventure, food lovers are guided by local food experts to Rome’s prominent cibo di strada destinations for a curated exploration of how the street food phenomenon has evolved in the course of the centuries, bringing the city to a superb level of quality and choice. 

We focus on showcasing only small, family-run food artisans, and we love creating friendly connections between travelers and locals. All while tasting delectable street food specialties, now part of the city’s social tissue and lifestyle, and learning about ancient food traditions and modern trends.
