Embark on a journey through Testaccio, a historic Roman neighborhood that's off the beaten path, on a walking tour led by a knowledgeable food enthusiast. Discover the local culinary scene by visiting market stalls and nearby eateries. We start our walking tour at the central square of Testaccio. You'll taste some of the best food from a long-standing family owned bakery. Drink espresso or cappuccino like a real Italian! After this, taste the best cheeses and cured meats paired with delicious wines. Explore Rome's most popular food market and converse with local vendors while admiring the high-quality produce on display. At Testaccio Market, indulge in authentic buffalo mozzarella and craft your own bruschetta. Learn to make your own bruschetta al pomodoro before savoring fresh pasta and wine at one of the neighborhood's top restaurants serving traditional Roman cuisine. Stop by a 105-year-old gelateria and choose from the most delicious assortment of flavors. As you stroll, your guide will enlighten you with Rome's lesser-known history and point out sights such as Europe's only pyramid and the Protestant Cemetery, the final resting place of John Keats. Your tour concludes just a few blocks away from the starting point, allowing you to continue exploring on your own or access public transportation, which is only a short walk away.
