Half-Day Food and Wine Tasting Tour in Rome
From US$86.77

Snack and sip your way around Rome with this evening food and wine tour led by a native speaker. In an intimate group of 12 people or less, this tour includes traditional tastes of Rome such as aperitivo, salt cod, and pizza. Avoid tourist spots with a light supper at a cozy restaurant in the neighborhood of Trastevere. The walking tour wraps up with a taste of gelato.

What to Expect

Meet your guide in Campo de’ Fiori in front of Ristorante La Carbonara for this small group food and wine tasting tour of Rome.

Explore the city center, passing vibrant cafes and buskers, while listening to your guide sharing stories of Roman food and history. The first stop is for classic aperitivo, including wine and artisan salami. Learn about the salami’s protected geographical indication, or PGI, an important element of food in Italy.

Taste more PGI products at a charming cheese shop, then sample the traditional Roman dish of baccalà fritto, or fried salt cod, pizza ordered by the slice, and supplì, fried risotto balls.

After a short walk to Trastevere, settle into a cozy restaurant for a light dinner. Snack on traditional Roman antipasto and two primi, or first course dishes, alongside two different types of wine.

The final stop is a gelateria where you taste rich, creamy gelato in the flavor of your choice.

It worth it beware

Extremely disappointing. Our guide did not introduce herself and did not appear interested in giving us any history of the areas we were walking through or why we were tasting the specific foods. She appeared to be casually strolling through the tour waiting for it...More
