Street food helps you understand a city's culture unlike anything else, and this Rome food tour gives you an inside scoop on local specialties with a bit of sightseeing along the way—something many similar tours don’t do. Plus, with an easy-to-find meeting spot in Campo de' Fiori and multiple tour times to choose from, this tour is perfect for travelers who are pressed for time.
What to Expect
Book your desired time slot for this Rome food tour, and greet your guide in one of the city's famous market squares.

Then, stroll around the food stands to peruse the wares and chat to some vendors. As you walk and talk, taste goodies such as cheese, cured meat, wine, and fruit.

Next, delve into the Jewish Ghetto, a neighborhood of cobbled lanes, piazzas, and fountains, studded with ancient Roman sites. See Rome’s main synagogue and the remnants of Pompeii's Teatro Grande. Sample some of the city’s best pizza, together with suppli (fried rice balls stuffed with tomatoes and mozzarella).

Continue into the area known as Torre di Largo Argentina, home to the spot where Julius Caesar was murdered, and visit a family-run gelateria. Here, taste some of its acclaimed gelato (ice cream) as you learn about the different flavors and how they’re made from the owner.

Your Rome food tour concludes in the city center.
