Traveling to a country and planning the activities where you don’t know the language can be quite a daunting task. I hate wasting time aimlessly wondering new cities and at places that don’t serve great local food. I’d read a lot of reviews about cooking lessons and food/wine tours in Rome, but a lot of people weren’t taking tours because of the Monday holiday after Easter. When booking with Foodie & Tours Rome, they could’ve easily told us no when checking our flexibility with our schedule for another day, but instead rearranged the normal tour to some other stops to accommodate our tight schedule. Maria, a native from Spain, though now a local in Italy, was extremely informative about the history of the city and architecture, which was a bonus considering we booked to taste some good local Italian food. We met at Campo dei Fiori, at the Center close to Giordano Bruno statue. She then took us straight to have a glass of prosecco and limon cello at Roscioli Cafe. Originally the quiet area in the back was closed but Maria’s charm got us in. ;) This place has some really nice modern print art on the wall by Giuseppe Stampone. After that, she took us to some of the most beautiful local churches in the area, the Santa Andrea della valle e chiesa nueva, and then we ate dinner at il Corallo Pizzeria. We ended with Gelato at Giolittie’s and more walking to some other landmarks. What was great about the night was that had we not had a local showing us around and getting tables for us, we would’ve missed out on some incredible food at places we would’ve have never known to go had it not been for the time Maria took to meticulously choose delicious places AND, most importantly, get us in. ;) Thank you Maria! We had an unforgettable night!

Maria and Ivano made our vacation in Italy stress free. We told them what we wanted to see and they helped us figure out how to get there. They also told us to go to places we didn’t know of—which made our experience even more memorable! I love food, so their guidance on the best places to eat was a perfect. I would without a doubt go through them again if I get another chance to go to Rome!
