    Elisabeth was a very passionate guide who showed us a couple places with different kinds of food. She told us passionate stories about the food and the stories behind the food. Elisabeth also spoke about the history of some Rome places which we encountered during the tour. Would recommend. We had the tour

    This tour is absolutely incredible. Oir tour guides name was Elisabeth, and she was absolutely amazing. Asa matter of fact, we ended up being the only 2 people on the tour, so it was a private tour accidentally. Our first stop was a salami market in the Field of Flowers. There was so much food, we couldn't even eat it all, even with the wine we were given. Our second stop was a pizza place that serves pizza by weight. We had the Margherita pizza and Suppli. The Suppli was my favorite and paired well with the blonde beer. Our next stop was in the Jewish Ghetto. We had fried artichokes, which were also delicious. The final stop was at a local Gelato shop, where there were unique flavors, to say the least. I would recommend this tour to anyone, but I specifically recommend Elisabeth as your guide. She was the best part!

    My tour with Elisabeth was fantastic! I was able to see parts of the city that others tours of Rome did not take me on. You really get to know how the food of Rome is influenced by the city and the people. Not to mention you get to eat some too! I would definitely recommend this tour for people visiting Rome who are looking to see more of the city other than the main attractions.
