Taste of Testaccio Rome Food Tour

Known to locals as the “heart of Rome”, Testaccio is the city’s original foodie neighbourhood and where cucina romana (Roman cuisine) was born. Our guided 4-hour walking food tour lets you experience Rome like a local, in an authentic neighbourhood where people live, eat and shop.

You’ll get to escape the crowds and really get a glimpse of daily life while tasting the best of what the city has to offer. You’ll visit our local market and meet the vendors who have been there for generations, and taste the most delicious pasta you’ve ever had (no joke). You’ll also be sampling everything from classic Italian dishes to a typical Roman street food snack. Along the way, your local guide will entertain and educate you with stories and insights into Rome’s culture and history, while exploring the city’s most fascinating offbeat landmarks. There is no better way to really live like a local than on our Taste of Testaccio Food Tour.
