Indulgent

From sumptuous supplì (fried rice balls oozing with ragù and mozzarella) and ‘Jewish-style’ fried artichokes to fillets of baccalà (think English fish and chips, but so much better), I’ll take you to try it all.

Informative

Over the course of three indulgent hours, my Rome Bites tour will nourish you with stories, anecdotes and enough Italian food to last you a lifetime!

A Local's Perspective

Come with me and you’ll be exploring Rome with a local, venturing off the beaten path to discover the places the Romans try to keep to themselves.

Start your Rome Bites tour in Campo de’ Fiori


Famous for its daily farmers’ market and vintage fashion stores, Campo de’ Fiori is also a favourite among food lovers (which is essentially every Italian!). I’ll give you the fascinating history of this square, which means the “square of flowers”, before we duck inside one of its most long-standing salumerie to munch our way through some meaty treats.


A balanced diet is the most important thing for an Italian so we’ll be seeking out a range of delicious street food as we go. Fancy some deep-fried
baccalà (cod-fillet) or heavenly zucchini? A platter of local cheeses washed down with regional wines? How about a few slices of Roman pizza? (Much thinner than its Neapolitan counterpart, but just as delicious in its simplicity.) I have the perfect Rome bites itinerary in mind, but can chop and change its order depending on what you want to eat!

Continue your foodie adventure around the Jewish Ghetto and Trastevere


Not many people know that Rome’s most classic cuisine is infused with Jewish cooking. But la cucina romana-ebraica, as it’s called, is one of the city’s most beloved culinary staples, and nowhere do they do it better than in the Jewish Ghetto. Walking the short distance from Campo de’ Fiori past ancient temples and medieval churches, we’ll venture into the Ghetto to try its famed artichokes. Deep-fried until they’re crispy, they taste a little like potato chips. Only so. much. better.


From the Ghetto it’s a short stroll across the River Tiber to the trendy area of
Trastevere. And you’ll be grateful for the walk because we have so much more food to get through! One of the absolute highlights is trapizzino – a warmed, hollowed-out bread roll filled with such succulent delights as meatballs, parmigiana and even hunter’s chicken, Roman-style. Everything up to now will have got your appetite going because after exploring Trastevere we’ll sit down for dinner.


Sample classic Roman pasta and mains over a sit-down dinner


What better way to round off your Rome Bites foodie adventure than with a sit-down meal in an authentic trattoria. Sat among local friends and families engaged in the serious business of dining, we’ll taste our way through a true cornucopia of Roman classics: the delightfully simple cacio e pepe, carbonara(which originates from Rome!) and amatriciana, just to name a few.


Linger on with wine and flowing conversation, until you’re ready to end the evening (or indeed start it by heading out on the town). But before we part ways I’ll take you to one of my favourite gelaterias (or even a tiramisù shop!) to indulge in the creamy stuff of dreams.
