Full description

Try out authentic delicacies as you immerse yourself in the local culture of Rome on a small-group walking tour. Taste unmissable Roman foods such as pizza from a family-run establishment, Supplì (fried mozzarella rice balls) and typical seasonal dishes from Rome’s Jewish Quarter. Meet in Piazza del Biscione before whetting your appetite at a local charcuterie at your first stop. Sample some typical Italian cured meats and some local wine there.

Then head off to try Rome's well-known tasty street food, Supplì. Your guide will fill you in on these rice delicacies' 19th-century beginnings and how they earned their name. Next, taste some classic Roman pizza and Menabrea beer at Roscioli, an establishment run by the founder’s grandchildren.

After this you’ll be heading to the Roman Ghetto, Rome’s old Jewish Quarter. Here, sample traditional zucchini flower fritters or carciofi alla giudìa (deep-fried artichokes), depending on what is in season at the time. Finish up the tour with a delicious artisanal gelato at Punto Gelato near Largo di Torre Argentina, the site of four ancient Roman Temples and Pompey’s Theater. Savor the unique northern Italian flavors at a gelateria that featured in Gambero Rosso’s Top 10 list of the best gelato in Rome.  Choose from either a private experience just for your group, or a small-group experience with no more than 14 people.

Elisabeta did an outstanding job curating this tour! She brought us to each locale, explained why it was representative of the fare and what made it exceptional. During these moments history, food and technique were married! There was excellent variety in what we tasted the deli was gorgeous—very old school Italy, the pizza was true Rome especially the Margarita. The Gelato was divine—we went back again. The Suppli came with a recipe which I shall make and all in all the 5 places we experienced at night were perfect. Safety was well managed—masking, distancing, sanitizing all good. Enjoy!

Elisabeth was great! She made us feel really welcome right away. She gave us so much info and answered all our question. I learned a lot and kept thinking how I should have booked this tour right away. The food was excellent and it ended right by the area we wanted to explore. Definitely recommend booking this tour as soon as you get to Rome!

Wonderful street food tour! Lisbeth chose a great variety of stops for a selection of Roman street foods. She was also very knowledgeable about the city’s food and history regaling us with stories about everything from the history of carbonara to the death of Caesar and the Republic. Highly recommend!
