After doing my "travel research" for a recent trip to Rome, I found this tour and all the rave reviews about it. Signed up, and was not disappointed at all! The tour was one of the most fun days I spent in Rome.
The tour is held in the Testaccio neighborhood of Rome. From the Termini, the easiest way to get there is the Metro line B, and get off at the Pyramide stop. From there, it is about a 5-10 minute walk, less than a mile. I loved this area - not many tourists at all, a little "rough and tumble" but certainly safe. Arrived at the meeting spot, and met our guide Domenico, who was lively, fun, informative, and does a great Mick Jagger imitation!
The alotted amount of time was perfect. We strolled to different shops, listened to great information about the area and the selected food, and had delicious samples. I was glad to take this tour 2 days after arriving in Rome - had plenty of time to use what I learned about the area and the food. We received a map and names of the shops and markets we stopped at. We even made a stop at the Non Catholic Cemetary, which was calm, tranquil, and very beautiful. The amount of walking was perfect, especially after eating. It really was the perfect balance of eating, walking, learning, and getting to know a great area of Rome.
Most of all, this tour is an incredible value for the price. I checked out several other food tours, all ranging from 100-350 Euros. At 65 Euros, this tour was a bargain. This really is an essential tour for anyone visiting Rome. Very well planned and thought out. Great work Domenico and Kenny, the owner and founder.
