REAL FOOD. REAL PLACES. REAL PEOPLE.
Roman cuisine (cucina romana) was born in Testaccio. So where better to eat your way through all that Rome has to offer than the city’s original foodie neighborhood? Testaccio is not only home to the famous quinto quarto (offal) that Rome is renowned for; it’s also the place where you’ll get away from the tourist crowds and get a glimpse of daily life. Meanwhile, you’ll discover a hidden gem of restaurant that’s set right into Monte Testaccio itself, find out what coda and trapizzino are (and, more importantly, what they taste like!), and sample Italian craft beers!
Our movable feast through Testaccio is perfect for the adventurous foodie who’s looking to try something that pushes the boundaries beyond pizza and pasta. Our local guides will regale you with personal stories, fascinating history, and a unique glimpse into local Roman life. Plus, as this is an evening food tour, you can expect plenty of wine, spirits and beer along the way! Why sit down to dinner when you can eat, learn and meet the locals all in one adventuresome evening?
You must be 18 years or older to take this food tour.
