About Rome With Sophie
I'm Sophie Minchilli, half Italian, half American and fully in love with Italy. I'd like to show you Italy (and Rome in particular) (and food most of all) through my food tours and cooking classes. I will be giving you a little glimpse into the streets, homes and life of the Italy I love.

Sophie's AMAZING tour was USD$135/person (including PayPal fees). We had a very small group of 4 but I don't think she ever has more than 6. It was worth every cent, she is fabulous!!!
