Take this tour your first or second day in Rome!!!

This was my second Trionfale Food Tour! It was just as engaging and informative as the first time we took this tour in July 2016 with Laluca. I would recommend taking this tour your first or second day in Rome so that you can apply what you learn on this tour to the remainder of your visit!!

This was an amazing food tour and would highly recommend to anyone who wants to try a huge selection of Italian food. Do not eat before because you will be provided with so many types of food plus beverages. We learnt a lot about the regions where the food and wine was made and how to identify certain specifications about what to order and buy. Our guide was great, engaging and funny which made the time fly by. We were a group of 11 family members and everyone mentioned that it has been a highlight of their time in Rome.

10/10 would recommend; best idea ever.

We are the best food and learned so much about the history of what we were eating! Raluca was a fantastic guide and we would absolutely do this again if we had the chance! Would definitely recommend doing this tour on one of your first days in Rome as it gives you a lot of insight where to go eat and what to look out for in the different regions of Italy.
