The only way to explore one of Italy’s top culinary destinations is alongside a local foodie, devoted to spreading the love for Italian food. Our Rome food tours are run by local foodies who get to the heart and soul of Italian cuisine, and know just where to find the gastronomic hotspots from the finest markets of the city to the boutiques where the locals queue out of the door for their favorite dish, served up to perfection.
Your foodie adventure begins at one of Rome’s most historic outdoor food markets at the heart of the Trastevere district. The colors of the freshest regional delicacies of the season are a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach. Make friends with a passionate family who have been selling cheese in the market since 1920 as you sample some of their best mozzarella or buffala.
The market tour is followed by a scenic stroll in the charming little streets of Trastevere with flavorful sips and nibbles along the way. You’ll stop inside a revered salumeria and sample a platter of local cured meats and olives artfully selected for you by a passionate professional. Continuing the stroll, you’ll fall in love with the irresistible suppli, the mouthwatering fried risotto balls that are Romans’ favorite street food.
Take a rest at a traditional osteria where a warm welcome and some copious servings of roman specialties are waiting for you. You’ll enjoy an assortment of roman pasta such as carbonara, amatriciana or cacio y pepe, paired with two glasses of local wine for each guest. You’ll also discover the famous Roman-Jewish-style artichoke cooked in two ways, fired and glazed, bliss for your taste buds (when in season).
After the hearty and savory meal awaits the coffee and the dessert in some tucked-away gems just around the corner. What could be better to conclude you foodie fantasy than with a warm and aromatic coffee, some roman biscuits and an ultra-fresh handmade gelato? Yummy!!
Romain was AMAZING!!! I will 100% be recommending him to our friends! Our Louvre tour was one of my kids favorite things we did and they said it was because of Romain.
Highly recommend. Private tour is a great way to get more personalized insights on Paris history. Guide was very knowledgeable. Will definitely use again.
We have done several tours with Localers and they are definitely worth the money! We are pretty independent travelers, but there is no substitute for local knowledge. Localers has the best guides!
I did 2 tours with Localers and would enthusiastically do more when I return to Paris. The main reason is the quality of the tours themselves, the fact they are authentic experiences, and you learn so much!
