Testaccio is a neighbourhood worthy of discovering, maybe not on your first visit to Rome as there are so many popular and familiar attractions to see, it's the original food neighbourhood of Rome. By our third visit to Rome we planned a visit through a...More

Testaccio is a real discovery. Next to Trastevere, and within walking distance of the Pirimide metro station and the Colosseum. To be discovered.

I strongly suggest you arrange Francesco to guide you for the Testaccio Food Tour. He is so knowledgeable about the history of that locale and about how Roman food should be served. We devoured the information and the food!

Testaccio was disappointing during the day. No atmosphere. Market was not a visit worth unless you have to do your groceries! Pyramid was nice to see.

If you want to get away from the hordes of tourists, Testaccio is the neighborhood. It is easily reachable on foot and has a number of great restaurants and cafes. The market is a must.

Put the house music on replay and you have Testaccio,
an ancient Roman port and former working class
neighborhood where the bass is set to high almost
every night of the week. Its collection of discoteche
(nightclubs), street parties, and crowded restaurants
give it its well-deserved party reputation. During the
daytime, Testaccio is more easy listening than club
hit, the area is full of locally owned small

We took a walking and eating tour of seven places in Testaccio including the Market. We didn't sit there, but in addition to grocery items there was prepared food to eat so I would guess there was some seating.
