Local Food, History and Hidden Places: +20 Food Tastings

From

79 EUR

In a authentic area close to the vatican walls, we will stop in 7 hidden places, owned by the same families since generations.
Heart of the experience will be in the biggest market in Italy. A real hit will be the stop at the artisanal pasta shop because we are the only ones allowed to go inside ;)

This was an AMAZING experience. The guide was so knowledgeable and a genuinely nice person! They take us to hand picked places mostly family run and have been around for almost 80-90 years and are authentic to what they are doing. We did a bit of cheese tasting, meat, Olive oil tasting (so good), local jams (got four flavours for myself and it was home made), bruschetta, pizza, lunch with some really nice red wine and gelato . Every single stop was totally worth it. If you are in Rome and if you are a foodie you HAVE to take this tour! Thank you for the incredible food journey!!

We will become coffee experts, in a local bar where the "Cornetti" are homemade with love by the 70 years old "nonna"

Exploring the biggest local market in Italy as real Romans do, we will discover from the vendors of the stalls, secrets and traditions of these families, tasting the best mozzarella, prosciutto, aged cheeses and "suppli", fried at the moment just for us.

You will create your own bruschetta, meeting the "Poets of Tomatoes", and during a gourmet stop we will have some Truffles products, directly from a truffle hunter.

After the tasting of an organic olive oil , awarded as the best in the world in 2018, we will spot a chruncy pizza in the oldest bakery of the area, opened in 1915

We will than have, an exclusive acces, inside the first pasta shop opened in Rome,discovering their amazing pasta.

After a stop with local wine in an Apulian street food shop, it will be the time for some sweetness:
a creamy Tiramisu, in a special chocolate cup and an amazing real gelato in a tiny hidden place, elected by the Pope, as his favourite gelato place :)

THE MOST AMAZING TOUR OF ROME
Real insight into Italian lives and Roman way of living, beautifully told history of the city in the context, delicious food and plenty of it, warm and exciting tour guide, hack and advice for life when it comes to food! Great value for money, responsible when it comes to disposable single issue plastic. Would recommend it to anyone! Loved it to bits, now I seek it in other cities.
A Treasure!!

Don't lose it
I cannot describe in words how marvellous it was. I felt like a friend, not like a tourist. I'm a huge foodie and Selene took to such places I wouldn't be able to find myself. I enjoyed every moment. Selene as a leader was OMG. Such passion, such energy, such sincerity. I think I met the best guide ever. And that was Selene. Definitely will join you next time
Wonderful Team!!!
I would recommend RomaEat to anyone traveling to Rome- especially first timers! Our tour guide made my first visit to Rome a great experience. I felt it was more of an authentic local experience. We ate amazing foods and met wonderful people. Another plus - the groups are kept small. Making for an overall better experience. Thank you RomaEat for a wonderful time! I'm back in the states but dreaming of Roma!! :)
Incredible... A MUST!!!
This experience was incredible -- I just loved it! I'm back home and haven’t stopped raving about this experience yet. I visited Rome many times since and just started doing these experiences to try something new and this one was so worth it. We learned, ate and laughed so much, it was just the most perfect day. The hosts were extremely knowledgeable, friendly and engaging. I think this experience should be on every Rome visitor’s to do list. I highly recommend this and can’t wait to do it again!
