What to expect
Choose a tour time that suits your schedule, and then meet your guide and group at the designated location in Rome's Testaccio neighborhood. It’s the city’s epicenter of food culture, which many travelers and tour groups seem to overlook. Stop by shops and restaurants that serve authentic Roman food. Visit a bakery for a local treat, and then peruse a food market where you’ll learn how to pick out the best quality produce. You’ll also learn how to make bruschetta and sample some buffalo mozzarella. Other stops include chances to taste gelato, Italian cheese, fresh pasta, wine, and suppli, a fried rice ball. Your guide will tell you about the neighborhood’s history, culinary and otherwise. Stop at the Protestant cemetery, burial place of John Keats, and see one of the city's only pyramids. Return to your starting point and go home with a food guidebook to use on the rest of your stay.

Tasting tour through Testaccio
Jun 2021
Really enjoyed this walking tour and would love to take others around Rome. The history, markets and street art in Testaccio are wonderful, and Domenico brought it all to life. We met many friends and had fabulous food bites along the way. We added the drink package, which I recommend - even if it starts in the morning. ; )

Fun delicious tour with Rish. Testaccio is a rather hidden food heaven
Oct 2020 • Friends
holiday with him. Being the only ones who had booked the tour we had him as our private guide. Rish is not only incredibly passionate about his job and can answer any question about food and the area. He also has a great sense of humour and knows how to fulfill his guests wishes. Highly recommended and would definitely book a tour with Rish again!!

The Best Food in Rome is in Testaccio!
Aug 2019
Hands down, I had some of the best food EVER on the Taste of Testaccio Tour in Rome in June 2019. Everything I tasted was delicious, there wasn’t anything I did not like. Our tour guide Chiara was so friendly, knowledgeable, and made the tour memorable. She made it a personal challenge to memorize all of our names (there were about 12 of us) when we kicked off the tour. And she did! We had such a great time with Chiara, and her passion for being a tour guide was evident. I am so glad we booked this tour last minute. It was the best food tour! Chiara was amazing and the food was the best I had in Rome. Five stars easy!!

Super Tour
Feb 2020
Ask for Chiara! We have done a lot of food tours in many different countries and Chiara was a top notch and fun guide. We felt as if family were showing us around their neighborhood. We learned a lot and tasted some delicious foods. After doing many tastings along the way, the tour actually included a huge lunch. I would highly recommend this tour for your next visit to Rome!
