Departure Point

Piazza Mattei, 00186 Roma RM, Italy

The meeting point is in front of the Turtle Fountain in Piazza Mattei. Your guide will be holding a LivTours sign.

Return Details

Piazza della Rotonda, 00186 Roma RM, Italy

The tour ends near the Pantheon.

Meet your guide and group of no more than six in the early evening. Your tour coincides with aperitivo time, when locals enjoy pre-dinner drinks and snacks.

Hear about this tradition from your sommelier-guide and begin your stroll to discover the city’s culinary highlights. Venues may vary, but your route includes stops with tastings equivalent to a 4-course dinner.

Start at a welcoming bar, and enjoy a glass of Prosecco and finger food. Then, head into Rome’s former Jewish ghetto, one of the world’s oldest still-lived-in Jewish quarters. Stroll through piazzas and lanes as your guide details Jewish cuisine, and how it provided the foundation of Roman gastronomy.

Visit an eatery to sample the Roman-Jewish staples of artichoke alla giudia (deep-fried artichoke) and fiori di zucca (fried, stuffed zucchini flowers) teamed with more Prosecco.

As the Italian adage ‘l'appetito vien mangiando’ – ‘appetite comes with eating’ goes, feel your hunger build, and then continue into Rome’s historical center.

While you walk and talk, pass some famous landmarks, and hear about their history and connections with Roman food. Learn how Rome’s street food obsession grew during the 1960s and ‘70s, and sample pizza al taglio (pizza by the slice). Savor the authentic flavors, and learn about pinza, Rome’s lighter version of pizza, and the difference between thick and thin pizzas.

Then, head inside one of Rome's most glamorous restaurants, overlooking the 2nd-century Pantheon. Savor homemade pasta with local wine as you admire the floodlit building, and learn about Roman pasta and the significance of your dish.

Next, visit a popular gelateria (ice cream parlor) where the ice cream is made with season-fresh ingredients, and enjoy some of Rome’s most acclaimed gelato.

Your tour then finishes in central Rome.

What a lovely evening in Rome. Our tour consisted of 5 stops all within a short walking distance of each other and it was just an amazing experience full of not only great food, but great sights as well. Our tour consisted of a couple spots for starters, a pizza stop, a pasta stop and then of course a stop for gelato. In between each stop, we got to learn a little bit about the area of the city we were walking in. I was very impressed by not only the amount of Italian food knowledge our tour guide had, but her overall knowledge of Rome as well. Of course the best part was still the food. We were so full by the end of the tour I could barely finish my gelato of course I pushed through tho. This tour is a must for anyone visiting Rome for the first time.

Our guide Tiffany was very knowledgeable, patient and...nice looking. The tour was not only about eating habits, but also about history of the streets, buildings we were walking around. You shouldn't expect fancy food, but it was fun and well arranged.
