Testaccio: Guided Food Tasting Tour

1. Testaccio: Guided Food Tasting Tour

Experience Rome like a local, in an authentic neighborhood where people live, eat and shop. Together we will explore the local markets, meet the vendors who have been there for generations, and taste the most delicious pasta. We start our walking tour at Panificio Passi, where you'll taste some of the best food this long-standing family owned bakery has to offer. Then, we take a stroll down the road to Masto for some of Italy's finest meats and cheeses – and a glass of local wine. We'll follow this with a walk through the famous Mercato Testaccio, sampling some of the best bruschetta and buffalo mozzerella. Ready for pasta? We'll taste 3 Roman classic pastas at Flavio al Velavevodetto. What Italian food tour isn't complete without authentic gelato – We skip the stuff you see along the tourist paths and head to one of our favourites, which has been serving gelato since 1914. Tastings and stops may vary based on the day of the week.

Good trip around

We had a wonderful trip around Rome and got to see a lot. However, there were big differences between the 2 guides we had and the headset you get handed out works poorly, so it requires that the guide can find out and speak clear English. The breakfast that is included in the price is not money be, choose to find a place yourself.

Simply great

We were picked up from the hotel as promised (great service). In the morning as well as afternoon we had excellent guides that deserve praise! Coliseum and petersdome without having to wait. Lunch in a typical Italian restaurant. Highly recommendable and big praise to the guides.

With our guide Patrick Westmeier we got to know Rome from the best side. His great knowledge of the interesting city has inspired us. We would book it again immediately. Thanks Patrick
