Rome: The Vatican Market Experience Tasting and Class

1. Rome: The Vatican Market Experience Tasting and Class

Visit the Vatican City district accompanied by a local chef born and raised in the Vatican, who knows every corner of the area and owns a small restaurant. Discover the Mercato Trionfale, located in the heart of the district. With nearly 300 stalls, the market has seemingly endless rows of vendors selling fresh vegetables, fruit, spices, cheese, seafood, meat, wine, and more. See where Romans go to stock their kitchens and learn the secret of great Italian cuisine: high-quality local ingredients. Make a complete gastronomic route inside the market, through the most outstanding stands. Try the delicious bruschettas and a selection of different slices of the most traditional Roman pizza. Discover also the exquisite taste of "supplì", these delicious rice croquettes filled with peas and minced meat, a classic of Roman street food. Also, taste Porchetta and Bufala mozzarella, different goat cheeses, homemade bread, olive oil, and truffle delicacies. The flavors will always be paired with exquisite Roman wine. Then enjoy the unmissable private cooking class given by your chef, in his cozy restaurant, very close to the market. Cook the traditional "Pasta Carbonara" with fresh products bought at the market. To crown the tour, try one of the most prestigious gelatos in all of Rome, while your local chef explains the history of the Vatican, the Popes, and the incredible religious buildings.

A really great course! Anton/Antony is a perfect teacher who has nice background stories about the dishes. You get all the attention and many extras such as a welcome drink and snack. The cooking course is highly recommended!

An absolute must when in Rome. Marco is an amazing person, and seemingly pretty famous. His generousity is unmatched. If there was only one thing I could do while in Rome, it would be this tour!

Wonderful experience. A must when visiting Rome. Tom was an outstanding, very thorough, fun instructor. Delicious food and a lot of it. Drinks included. We will do it again.

One of the best experiences in our life. Our chef Davide's was personable and knowledgeable. We are completely satisfied and thank you for this great event.

Everything as described - on request we were shown in the kitchen how carbonara is made - everything was very tasty (was also made by myself)
