Trastevere Food Tour Description
Discover businesses that have their roots grounded in the community and delicious Roman-style street food. Get to know the lives of the locals in this memorable evening food walk.
Locally Owned Biscuit Bakery
During your food walk you will visit a biscottificio (biscuit bakery) complete with an original oven from the 1940s. You will be able to chat with the owner, Stefania, about the history of her family.
Sample different biscuits all made with organic stone ground flour and gentle flavors of local almonds and jams. Imagine yourself enjoying these biscuits every morning for breakfast as the locals do.
Roman Street Food Sampling
Bite into a freshly fried ‘suppli’ (fried rice appetizer) tasting its crunchy breaded exterior with melted mozzarella and ragú oozing from the inside. From mid-morning snack to a late-night fix, this fried treat is the most common street food in Rome to be found nowhere else.
In this tasting tour, you’ll explore different varieties of cured meats and cheeses that go beyond the simple prosciutto and parmigiano. From liver and orange salame to raw milk, pecorino let us show you what local producers are excited about.
You Cannot Have a Food Tour in Rome Without Pasta!
If you’re channeling your inner Italian you can move onto the holy trinity of pasta that defines Roman staples. Try some creamy cacio e Pepe pasta and rustic amatriciana from the outskirts of Rome. Last, not to be missed, is an authentic carbonara.
Learn about the ingredients in these dishes so that you can try making them at home with all the secrets your expert guide will share with you.
Warm Your Heart With Some Trastevere Wine or Craft Beer
Have no fear! This is also a wine tasting tour. You will try various local wines with your local guide helping you along the way. We will introduce you to some native (more than 300) grape varieties that make up the real heritage of this country.
Since the 1980s Italy has also caught up with the craft brewery scene and has since created some award-winning beers that you will find here.
Discover The Neighborhoods of Trastevere
On the Trastevere food tour, we will also visit the famous Basilica of Santa Maria of Trastevere as well as enjoy the piazzas (squares) which Romans use to leisurely lounge in such as Piazza Trilussa.
