Covid-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

Your tour will begin in a place that is surprising to many, but not to anyone who knows anything about the history of Roman food - the old Jewish ghetto. In the company of your expert foodie guide and just 11 other travelers, you’ll pop into one of the neighborhood’s beloved trattorias and taste traditional, seasonal Roman starters as you learn how Jewish culture has influenced Roman food over the course of some 2,000 years. Leaving the ghetto, you’ll head to an artisanal cheese shop to learn the long history of local cheese making as you taste pecorino Romano and other Italian cheeses over a bottle of local white wine. Pairing food and drink is important for Romans so your next stop will be one of the city’s most iconic delis to try the deep-fried mozzarella and rice balls called supplì with a glass of Italian beer. Another is the encyclopedic range of charcuterie that you will try at a nearby butcher. From salamis spiked with fennel, truffles or Barolo wine, to cured pork and a few surprises, you’ll enjoy a wide range of meats along with a nice glass of red wine. Be sure to save some room because the best has been saved for last. After a quick tasting of olive oil and balsamic vinegar, you’ll step into the kitchen of a real Roman pizzeria and make your own pie. The dough will already be risen and waiting, so you’ll learn all about kneading out a (near) perfect circle, how to spread just the right amount of tangy tomato sauce and the important differences between Roman style and Neapolitan style pizza. Finally, you’ll do as the Italians do and take a comfortable stroll through the city, stopping for a cup or cone of gelato. This tour will be wonderfully in-depth and hands-on. As you eat your way through the city and its history, your guide will also give you practical tips and suggestions on how to avoid tourist traps and eat well during your stay in Rome. You won’t just leave with a full belly; you’ll leave with a lot of new knowledge of Italian food.

This was one of our favorite activities in Rome!

This was a great way to experience Rome! We walked through the Jewish Ghetto and were able to try several cheeses, meats, and other Italian favorites. Our Tour guide was fun and very interesting. The tour was also away from many of the crowded places so it was a nice change of pace. Be prepared to eat quite a bit!! At first it didn't seem like a lot but, by the end, I couldn't finish half of the pizza I made.
