We will meet in Campo de Fiori, the square that every morning is the location of an historical food market, and in the evening sees people gathering for the "happy hour" in one of the bars nearby. From there we will head to our first stop: a family shop of cold cuts, where you can taste different kinds of salami, from barolo wine to truffle flavour, all accompanied by a sip of local wine. Leaving the square, we will go to the Jewish Ghetto, where you will learn the history of this small quarter and the experiences lived by its community during World War 2. You won't leave the Ghetto without trying the famous Jewish artichoke, or the Roman zucchini flower, typical Roman/Jewish appetisers. From one stop to the following, save room for the other tastings: we will pass by an old bakery that makes one of the best pizza in town and if you are lucky, with the wind in favour, you might smell it already along the way. We will see the place where according to the chronicles of the past, Julius Caesar was assassinated, the ruins of a Roman wellness center, and listen to funny histories on the monuments that I will show you, including the Pantheon. When the tour will get there, the Pantheon will be closed, but I will give you all the main information you need to enjoy a visit on your own. You will learn lots of things, 3 hours of history, food, local culture, and fun!
Hi! My name is Virginia and I'm a tour leader, specialised in street food tours. Visiting a new place is always a pleasure, and if you can discover a city also through its food, it's amazing. This is the aim of my Rome Street Food Tour: a 3-hour sightseeing in one of the best known areas of the city center, with tasting stops to flavour samples of the most famous Italian and local street food: from the crunchy sliced pizza to the Roman supplì, a fried rice ball, and much more. On the way, I will tell you anecdotes on the places that we are going to see and will discover hidden corners and histories that you can't find on your own. Mattia, Alessia, and Ruggero collaborate with me in doing the tours. Follow me and let's go, or better..."andiamo"!
Food is included in the price
We will stop into historical shops of the city center, where locals use to go for their light lunch or dinner snack
