1. Rome: The Vatican Market Experience Tasting and Class
Visit the Vatican City district accompanied by a local chef born and raised in the Vatican, who knows every corner of the area and owns a small restaurant. Discover the Mercato Trionfale, located in the heart of the district. With nearly 300 stalls, the market has seemingly endless rows of vendors selling fresh vegetables, fruit, spices, cheese, seafood, meat, wine, and more. See where Romans go to stock their kitchens and learn the secret of great Italian cuisine: high-quality local ingredients. Make a complete gastronomic route inside the market, through the most outstanding stands. Try the delicious bruschettas and a selection of different slices of the most traditional Roman pizza. Discover also the exquisite taste of "supplì", these delicious rice croquettes filled with peas and minced meat, a classic of Roman street food. Also, taste Porchetta and Bufala mozzarella, different goat cheeses, homemade bread, olive oil, and truffle delicacies. The flavors will always be paired with exquisite Roman wine. Then enjoy the unmissable private cooking class given by your chef, in his cozy restaurant, very close to the market. Cook the traditional "Pasta Carbonara" with fresh products bought at the market. To crown the tour, try one of the most prestigious gelatos in all of Rome, while your local chef explains the history of the Vatican, the Popes, and the incredible religious buildings.
