Full description
Start your morning the Italian way with coffee and pastries in a bakery that serves as the meeting point for locals all over the neighborhood. Following a typical day’s schedule, you’ll make your way to the local market to speak with some of the passionate stall owners who have had their stalls for 40 years.

Try one of Rome’s famous pizzas as well as cheese from all over Italy. After taking a look at the monument which has greatly influenced Testaccio’s history and food, you’ll relax with an original Roman panini and some wine from a multi-generational family vineyard more than 100 years old.

Next, get a crash course in all things local at a traditional delicatessen. Sample locally produced prosciutto and salami, marinated vegetables, and, of course, learn the ins and outs of two of Italy’s most famous exports — olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

In a nod to the traditional Italian-style lunch, you’ll try the three most famous Roman pastas paired with local red wine at a traditional trattoria and earn more about what meal times typically involve for Italians.

End the day by topping all these delicious bites off with gelato as you taste the produce at a historic gelateria serving up flavors that are made on site every morning.
