Description

Tour Details

You’ll start in one of Rome’s most vibrant piazzas, the Campo de’ Fiori. The farmer’s market here overflows with produce and traditional food products from the surrounding countryside. You’ll learn all about the seasonality of Italian food from the people who produce it and be introduced to a family who has run one of your guide's favorite stands for over a century. As you try their homemade olive oil and balsamic vinegar, you’ll learn their story along with what makes seasonal eating so important to Italians.

The market includes a variety of tastings and even more key facts, like the differences between cured meats...why you’re not automatically offered parmesan for every pasta in Italy...and whether mozzarella di bufala really comes forma a buffalo.

After seeing where Rome’s food comes from, it’s time to see how it’s used. At a local pizzeria, you’ll roll your own pizza using fresh, locally sourced ingredients and some of the best dough in town. Fun for both kids and adults, you’ll roll the dough, add your ingredients and slide it into the huge wood-burning oven. As you feast on your gourmet treat, your expert foodie guide will explain some of Italy’s pizza traditions and give you an inside look at the culture that surrounds this most treasured food.

After you have eaten your pizza, you’ll enjoy that most Italian of treats – coffee!

As part of a group of 12 people or fewer, you’ll have plenty of time and access to quiz your expert foodie guide on everything you want to know about Roman food. The guide will also offer you advice on when, where and how to eat in Rome so you won’t just eat well during the tour - you’ll eat like a local for the rest of your trip!
