This tour was absolutely fantastic and… sweet! I can’t recommend it enough. Our guide was so knowledgeable, engaging and could help us a lot. We loved it so much we booked the daily experience for the next day. It made our trip in Rome so memorable and enjoyable. Loved it so much. A must do! Highly recommended.

If you are searching for a unique experience that combines Food, History and Secret Places in the oldest District of Rome, this is the experience for you.

Rione Monti is a quiet treasure, very close to the Colosseum and Forum, but complitly off the beaten paths.

In 90 minutes you will taste some of the most famous products of our culture, in hidden places where only Romans go, and where we are sure you'll go back many times during your stay.

Being all archeologists, for the first part of the experience we will take a "time machine" together, showing you around amazing little details around the area, secret passages and hidden ruins that talk about the daily life of 2000 years of history.

We are even a big foodies and In the second part of the experience, we will taste the best of Rome starting with a an amazing espresso in one of the last “Torrefazione” (coffee roastery) of the city.

We will then jump in the smallest local market of the city center, having a Rustico (Typical Italian savory pie)just out of the oven.

Out off the beaten paths, we will taste some amazing cheeses and salami from a tiny grocery of the area.

Our day will continue with a deep fried Suppli and a round crunchy Pizza: two of Rome's best street food products.

We will finish with a "Maritozzo" a sweet roman tradition, really hard to find in other places =)

Lovely, lovely, lovely!!!
So happy to have found this experience! The sweet treats were amazing, but the tour and all the insider information we got, was even better! This was the first thing we did while in Rome and I’m so glad, now we have a staring point and some great recommendations on things to try and places to go back and explore more. Having these guys as guides felt like we were meeting up with some old friends and catching up rather then being lead around by strangers. They are passionate and love what they are doing and it absolutely shows. We can’t wait to come back and do one of the other tours Roma Eat (check out their website) provides! Thank you so much!

This tour ticked all the boxes for me.Julieanna,our guide, was very knowledgeable and delivered the tour in an entertaining way . The tour was great value for money! We did the morning tour and will definitely do the twilight tour next time we visit Rome.
Don't miss it while in Rome!
Tour was fantastic! I came by myself and had a great time with Selene and other guys, eating best italian specialties, discovering interesting stories and places about amazing Rome. Selene is full of positive energy, highly knowleadgable and very passionate about the city. I would reccomend this tour to everyone, don't miss it while in Rome! :) Laura
Wonderful night of food and fellowship
We take a food tour in about every town that we visit and this Rome food tour was exceptional. We talked and tasted food, learned a bit about the history of Rome and had a wonderful time exploring the city at twilight. Definitely a tour to do within the first couple of nights in Rome as you will leave with more places that you need to explore. Just make sure you go on an empty stomach because you will need the room!
