Take a guided walk in Rome’s Prati district, an area that’s off the traditional tourist route and in the shadow of the Vatican. Stop at a historic pasticceria for breakfast, sample Roman street foods and wine, and discover old-style Roman specialties.
What to Expect
Take a leisurely walk through Rome’s Prati district and see its historic markets. Meet your local expert guide at the Cipro Metro station and head off to explore an area that’s definitely off the traditional touristic route.
The first stop on your 4-hour food tour is Trionfale Market, said to be the first market in Rome and one of the largest in Italy, boasting 273 stalls.
After soaking up the market’s atmosphere, you’ll continue on to the main shopping streets of the Prati district. The streets were built so that none has a view of St. Peter’s dome, demonstrating the strained relations between the Italian State and the Papal States during that time.
Take a walk along the axis that runs from Piazza Risorgimento to the Tiber River, where Piazza Cola di Rienzo is located. At one time this was home to large fashion stores, gastronomic specialty shops, and coffee shops.
During your walk you’ll stop for breakfast at a historic pasticceria, taste some Roman specialties at a local bakery, enjoy other local products at a cozy bistro, sip a traditional coffee, and finish with an excellent homemade gelato made with seasonal products.
The tour ends at the Lepanto Metro station.
