You may have heard that when in Rome, you should do as the Romans do. On this ultimate foodie tour, that’s exactly what’s on the agenda! Start your morning in true Italian style with coffee and pastries in a bakery that serves as the meeting point for locals all over the neighborhood. Following a typical Roman’s daily routine, you’ll make your way to the local market. While there, you’ll meet a few of the passionate vendors—some of whom have had their stalls for 40 years. Try incredible local pizza, farm-fresh vegetables, artisanal cheeses, and cured meats. You’ll also enjoy a sandwich from a stall that locals can’t stop talking about — and revisiting time and time again. After the market, it's time for lunch. You’ll head to a family-run trattoria to try pasta with true local roots paired with Italian red wine. As you eat, your guide will give you a crash course in Italian mealtimes. End the day by topping all these delicious bites off with gelato. Enjoy a cup or cone of the flavors of your choice at a historic gelateria serving up delicious gelato made on site every morning. Between each foodie stop, your local guide will point out important landmarks, including an Ancient Roman archaeological site and a 19th-century slaughterhouse that led to the rise of the modern neighborhood. When you part ways with your guide, you'll have a deeper appreciation for this hidden gem of a neighborhood and know how to eat and drink like a true Roman.
