Full description
Imagine yourself walking down the tiny alleys of Rome and, as a local, you know every corner of the city. You will start with an aperitivo with a sparkling wine (and appetizers) in one of the best wine bars of the city. After that, you will visit a local market (not always available) and have a taste of some of the most traditional Roman street food, such us pizza con la mortadella or supplì. Your Food Ambassador, a licensed local guide and food expert, will introduce you to traditional Roman cucina povera (poor cuisine): the use of simple ingredients to create great dishes. You will taste some pasta and a main course or local cold cut and cheeses. The tour ends with a delicious dessert, that may be a cannolo or a gelato.

Wir hatten das Glück die Tour nur zu zweit zu machen. Manuela war eine fantastische Gastgeberin. Die Auswahl der Speisen und Lokalitäten waren eine Inspiration

Wir hatten einen sehr guten Führer, namens Mirko, der alles wunderbar erklärt hat , seine Art hat die Truppe für uns perfekt gemacht Am Abend haben wir noch länger zusammen gesessen und viel gelacht und erzählt. Die Lokalitäten waren gut ausgesucht , es gab gute , typische italienische Küche.
