Explore a hidden gem unknown to most visitors, the historic neighborhood of Testaccio. The birthplace of contemporary local cuisine as we know it, Testaccio's culinary significance dates all the way back to ancient Rome. A favorite dining destination for all Romans, you'll have premier access to the neighborhood's most sought after food and drink. We'll be visiting 6 or more local food businesses where you'll enjoy an array of tastings covering many of Rome's traditional delicacies. 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.
