Discover a hidden gem unknown to most visitors, the historic neighborhood of Testaccio. The birthplace of contemporary local cuisine as we know it, it's culinary significance actually dates back to ancient Roman times. A specific dining destination for all Romans, you'll be enjoying Testaccio's most sought after food and drink in the company of a true local. Tours last 4 - 6 hours and consist of 12 or more tastings covering many of Rome's traditional delicacies. Day tours we start with breakfast, snack our way through the market, have lunch at the best local trattoria, and finish with my favorite childhood gelato. Evening tours start with an aperitivo (a friendly tipple), we snack our way through the neighborhood (getting to try the city's best Roman style wood-fired pizza), have dinner at my go-to trattoria, also finishing with the neighborhood's most ancient gelateria. Tours cost 150 euros per person, private tours can also be organized. I grew up in Testaccio, and am a chef and sommelier, so you will also be trying some of the best wines this country has to offer, as well as going over how to prepare many local dishes, including but not limited to the delicious things you'll be trying on tour. We’ll cover a bit about the history of Rome and of the neighborhood itself, and you’ll learn vital tips regarding how to choose authentic places to eat in and avoid tourist traps during the rest of your journey. Come VERY hungry, there will be a lot for you to enjoy!
