Street food and drink, the funkiest neighbourhoods, tradition and the best bites you can have in Rome You can tell everyone back home that you came to Rome for the history, art and culture, but we know what you are really looking forward to: the food! And we happen to agree. Rome is so much more than its Forum, fountains and ancient artifacts. In fact, you haven't even scratched the surface until your sightseeing is done for the day and you can get to the real heart of the city - or should we say, it's stomach! Since the time of gladiators (and in the case of some wineries, even earlier!), Romans have expressed themselves through their hands and their food. You already know about the pizza and gelato, but have you heard of angry spaghetti? How about supplí? From artichokes to oxtail, from traditional charcuterie to a modern treat that dares put a twist on pizza, there's a story behind every dish. And there's no better place to learn about Roman food than in two of its most traditional and, nowadays, funkiest neighbourhoods: Testaccio and Trastevere. Think the coolest spots in Brooklyn or Berlin, but with an Italian Nonna's cooking thrown into the mix. Join our food tour through these historical neighbourhoods, where you can admire street art and street food , and learn the history of the area while sipping on a craft beer or Aperol Spritz. We'll visit the tombs of Keats and Shelley, one of Rome's most beautiful churches, and we'll show you a pyramid almost as old as the actual pyramids and older than the Colosseum itself! Our knowledgeable local guide will take you to a mixture of ours and everyone's favourite stalls and fast food joints. And don't worry, we will be stopping for a gelato! DETAILS DAYS Every MONDAY, THURSDAY MEETING TIME 10:30am  MEETING POINT Outside Piramide Metro Stop INCLUDED Your foodtastic local Italy on a Budget guide At least 16 food samples 3 drinks included All the info about the delicious food you´ll be sampling Tour of Testaccio and Trastevere DURATION 4h NOTE Come with an empty stomach :-) COMBO Why not combining our Rome for foodies with the Rome by night? or the Vatican & Sistine Chapel walking tour?
