Overview
Take a fun, informative and tasty food tour of one of the most picturesque and thriving neighborhoods of Rome: Testaccio. Enjoy the new formula "you pay what you eat": you choose what to taste and pay for the items or quantity you choose. A passionate expert guide will take you to family owned eateries that have been handed down for generations. There are bakeries, ice cream parlors, pizzerias, grocery stores and a large open market which is the heart of the district. On this 3-hour small-group tour you will also visit places of artistic and cultural interest: the famous Poets' Cemetery, the ancient slaughterhouse turned into a museum, the ancient pyramid, the city walls and much more.
Highlights
  • Soak in the culture and cuisine of Testaccio, both present and past
  • See highlights such as Pyramide Cestia and the Protestant Cemetery
  • Visit a local market’s shops and street-food vendors
  • Nibble on tasty bites and sample wine (own expense)
  • Small group size means plenty of personal attention
What to Expect
Taste the daily life of Testaccio, one of Rome’s hip—but classic—neighborhoods, on this walking tour of family-owned delis, bakeries, a market, and historic sites. Indulge in a series of nibbles (own expense): pasta at an old inn, Italian pastries, cheese, and salami. Continue as you meet local food vendors on the street, in shops, and at the outdoor market. Walking the streets, you’ll smell food cooking, hear the local banter, and get a sample of the delicious flavor of the Eternal City's everyday life. Between the stops, the tour visits notable Testaccio sights including a visit to the city’s only surviving pyramid (Pyramide Cestia) and the Cimitero Acattolico per Stranieri, the so-called “Protestant Cemetery” where non-Catholics and artists were buried.

Really great fun with Matteu, our knowledgeable guide. A brilliant way to see a less obvious, fun and beautiful part of Rome! Something for everyone- my teenager and my younger daughter loved it too. Don’t miss this delicious experience!
