When I overheard my husband ask our guide how much it would cost to rent an apartment in the Testaccio neighbourhood for a month, I knew the Taste of Testaccio culinary walking tour and food stroll had been a success. We were eating Italian food like a local during a 4-hour walking tour of Rome’s most authentic neighbourhood.
Hosted by Eating Europe Food Tours, it’s one of several Eating Italy Food Tours in Rome but was our top pick because it takes enthusiastic eaters through the real Rome and off the beaten path into relatively unexplored neighbourhoods.
Eating Italy Walking Tour Rome
During this walking tour combined with a cooking class in the Testaccio neighbourhood in Rome we enjoyed 12 different tastings– beginning with espresso and cornetti (sweet pastry) at Barberini cafe/bar, then diving into the taste sensations within several slices of Rome’s top-rated pizza, followed by the opportunity to create our own bruschetta in the Testaccio Market. We also sampled cheese in the “Prada” of cheese shops, lunched in an ancient cave made of amphora pottery and learned the secrets to identifying real gelato. Along the way, we met the owners of family-run businesses and Italian restaurants, lots of food producers and passionate chefs.
Best Rome Food Tour
The concept of this wonderful experience was to wander Rome like a local and get a feel for living in Italy through their rich culture and by sampling some great Italian cuisine, at least for a few hours! Not only were we completely inspired by the stories of the people we met (one couple even offered tips on the secrets to a long-lasting marriage) but we were so stuffed with gourmet food we walked all the way back to the Spanish Steps and didn’t eat for the rest of the day. Well, not unless you count gelato and ice cream as food.
Later that week, we followed our guide’s suggestions (and Eating Italy Food Tour) recommendations for great Rome Restaurants. We weren’t disappointed and enjoyed one of our best meals in Italy!
