REAL FOOD. REAL PLACES. REAL PEOPLE.
Formerly known as the Daylight Trastevere Food Tour, Trastevere for Foodies is a delight for the true foodie looking to get a real flavor of Roman life, through our food! With its narrow cobblestone streets and laneways, Trastevere is the most picturesque Roman neighborhood and one you need to visit during your stay. During the day, it’s like a small village with timeless and artisan shops serving the same local families for generations – many of which we’ll visit together, tasting the amazing food and exploring these local spots along the way.
On this 4-hour guided walking food tour we visit the colorful outdoor food market and meet some of the stallholders who have been selling their produce there for generations. You’ll also visit local food stores and talk to the wonderful families working hard to preserve Roman food traditions. This tour features some unique cultural and historical sites that few tourists get an opportunity to see. Join us for a day living like a true local!

FOOD HEROES YOU’LL MEET ALONG THE WAY
"If you ate our cookies 50 years ago, they taste more or less the same today. I used to watch my dad bake and it seemed so easy but in fact, far from it! Artisan products like ours require quality ingredients, but honestly, the most important ingredient is love."Learn More
"Gelato has been my favourite food ever since I was a child. Althought it's more work I prefer to make everything myself for my gelato: sauces, infusions...I want to make sure that everything is natural and fresh."Learn More
Adamo & Emiliano
"My great-grandfather opened this stall in 1920." "My favourite part of my job is selecting new products to satisfy our clientele."Learn More

"The best part of working at the market is that every season brings new and unique produce. I spent most of my life at the market, my mother even went into labour here!"Learn More
"I worked in the stock market for nine years... I gave it up to open I suppli with my brother in law and have never looked back"Learn More
“I started working here in 1963. I was only 13 years old. My dad wanted me to stay in school but I chose this job. Doing it is a labour of love.”Learn More
