EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION

EXPLORE A LOCAL PRODUCE MARKET WITH SPECIAL TASTINGS

Your discovery of Italy’s food starts in one of Rome’s liveliest piazzas: Campo de'Fiori. As you wander the stalls, find out how to pick your produce like a local. You'll learn which foods are in season, which aren’t, and why that’s so important to Italians and farmers. Of course, you’ll also taste the goods! Your local guide will introduce you to the family that’s run one of our favorite stands for more than a century. They sell their own, homemade olive oil and balsamic vinegar – you’ll get to try these and more, learning that there's no such thing as 'Italian food'.

Food traditions in Italy differ wildly from one region to another, as does the produce: Olive oil for example, differs wildly in profile depending on where the olives are grown and how they are pressed, as you'll learn during your tasting. This is just one of the many lessons you'll learn along the way. Led by a local foodie you'll stop for that delicious Sicilian dessert, cannolo, and learn about food culture in the south. You'll discover (and taste) the differences between prosciutto crudo or coppa, parmesan or pecorino. Find out why you’re not automatically offered parmesan with every pasta (especially in Rome) and whether mozzarella di bufala really comes from buffalo milk.

MAKE YOUR OWN PIZZA AT A ROMAN PIZZERIA

After all these tastings, it’s time to play chef. At a local Italian restaurant, you'll enjoy delicious starters of olive ascolane and Rome's favourite rice balls, 'suppli', before making your own pizza. Because it takes so long for the dough to develop, that’s already made for you so you’ll roll the dough, add your own toppings and slide it into the huge wood-burning oven, the Neapolitan way.

As you’re walked through the process, find out how pizza is different not only outside of Italy, but from region to region within Italy, too. And discover, once and for all, what pizza with “peperoni” means—so you’ll never be surprised again!

LOCAL EXPERTS TEACH YOU WHAT AND WHERE TO EAT IN ROME

With small groups of only 12 people or fewer, your Rome Food Tour will be more like a casual outing with friends than a traditional tour. You’ll be able to engage more with your guide as they teach you what you should eat in Rome; where to eat it, with recommendations specific to your taste; and how to seek out the best restaurants when you’re scouting on your own. They’ll teach you how to tell an authentic restaurant from a touristy one (not always that obvious), or which dishes on “Italian” menus back home won’t show up in Italy. Because your time in Rome should certainly be measured in meals!

Our local experts are hand picked for their passion for Italian food and produce. They’re obsessive about getting the best meals and the best bang for their buck, making them the perfect people to lead your culinary exploration of Rome. With small groups and friendly guides you’ll truly experience one of Italy’s most pleasurable passions – food!

Guests with food allergies are asked to contact us upon booking so we may facilitate you. For more, please read our Important Notes section.

Andrea was fantastic! Both my son and I loved the tour. It was informative and fun.
We loved the Food Tour with Andrea. He was friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We had fun touring the market and sampling the oil and vinegar that was for sale. Also visited the cheese shop and butcher before making our own pizzas. It was a perfect morning.

Erica was a very good guide very informative and knowledgeable, the tour was very enjoyable, with the various tastings. And finishing with pizza making which was great fun. Would recommend this tour
Great tour content and awesome tour guide. She was willing to provide recommendation for all of her guests for the rest of their visit in Rome. Has a passion for travel and Italy, which was refreshing.
Francesca was terrific. Her knowledge of the products was excellent and samples were amazing. Would have enjoyed a blue cheese sample. Pizza making was great fun . Couldn't eat for the rest of the day. A wonderful experience!
Excellent guide, I forgot his name. He was knowledgeable, friendly and happy to answer questions. Very enjoyable experience!
Absolutely a GREAT day! I travel to Rome at least once a year and once again Walks of Italy provided a great experience. Make sure you're hungry they do not skimp on the tastings!
Great size group (only 4!). Guide was very informative and enjoyed interacting with us! Had a wonderful experience!
This was the highlight of our 3 day trip to Rome. Friendly and knowledgeable guide. Well organised tour.
Very happy that we chose Walks of Italy for our tour! We only had one day in Rome and Shannon really helped us to experience part of an amazing culture. We will really miss the FRESH mozzarella and other goodies back in the States.
Great tour very enjoyable and Melanie was great at taking us around romes cuisine and very knowledgeable.
Thoroughly enjoyed the tour, learnt a bit about Roman food & food culture, Rhianne was great.
I have really enjoyed the time spent with your tour guides. It's so much better than wandering around by oneself. Absolutely wonderful. I see now that one shouldn't do it any other way.
My guide, Erica, was incredible! She was so sweet and friendly, and great at explaining all the nuances of the foods.
Our tour guide Gio was amazing! She was so much fun and very knowledgeable. We brought our two young daughters on the tour with us and they loved it just as much as we did.
Excellent Joseph brilliant guide we loved the tour !
We did the Rome Pizza Making Market tour as a family. This was a great tour, and we all had a very nice time. Our guide was very knowledgeable and the kids loved making the pizzas!
I thought it was wonderful how we got to try so much different things. Everything was really close to each other, so we didn't have to walk very far. The food was incredible, and the pizza making experience was amazing! Our guide was wonderful, nice, and knowledgeable.
Excellent tour which engaged all of us. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and made the tour even better
Jos did a brilliant job....his knowledge and humor added so much to the experience. Well done!
Andrea was a fantastic guide. He was very personable, knowledgeable, efficient, and he had a good sense of humor. I could tell the vendors liked and respected him. We all did! I would rate him higher than a five. He treated us as though he had nothing better to do than to be with us. A+ for Andrea.
I would like to thank Josef who was our guide who made our tour experience great.
Julia (despite her advanced pregnancy) was engaging, knowledgeable and humorous. We appreciated her insights to the local food customs and her willingness to help us take photos and ask non-food related questions. Would definitely recommend the tour and Julia as a guide.
Such a wonderful tour! We got to sample olive oils, vinegars, pestos/pastes, meats, and cheeses all before making our own HUGE pizzas. It was a small group that allowed us to have a conversation with our guide about Rome, food, and so much more.
Our experience was PERFECT!! Our guide was extremely knowledgable and entertaining. All of the shop owners was generous and kind. Our daughter didn't feel well and our guide even offered his own water bottle for her. LOVED IT

Amy our tour guide was fabulous!
Julia was awesome! Tasting the olive oils, balsamic vinegars, cheese, wine, salami, it was all great!
My family - 2 adults + 2 kids - had lots of fun at the market tour and pizza class. Our guide, joe, was friendly and knowledgable, the pizza chef was charming and very encouraging, lunch was abundant and delicious... It was a perfect morning out, we would recommend it highly -- thanks!
Amazing tour! Would do it again. Andrea was very knowledgeable and had a great attitude! Will recommend to all.
Peter was informative, personable and helpful. Well worth the time. I thought there might be more time making pizza dough based on the name of the tour. That said, great time and would recommend.
I thought perhaps the pizza making would be more hands-on but I realize it was a tasting tour and not a cooking class. As a tasting tour it is well designed. Peter was an excellent guide and very knowledgeable, not only about the food but also about Roman history and culture. Douglas
Amy was great, we had a wonderful time. We were with four children of varying ages and she was awesome. Good content, great food and excellent guide!!!! What a nice way to blend history, food and the love of Rome.
This was a very fun tour with Andrea & a nice group of people. Andrea and our other food hosts were most hospitable!

Julia is a real foodie who enjoys passing on her knowledge and dining tips to others. Thoroughly enjoyed this session. Would recommend this tour to others.
We had an amazing time with Camilla. Loved all the food and wine we tastes. Perfect location. Pizza making was fun. Will continue recommending walks of Italy and will try cooking with the chef in his apartment next year.
She engaged the group and and especially made sure the children were enjoying the experience. She was extremely knowledgeable and pointed out architectural highlights that we may want to see later. She shared personal experiences that help us relate to the tour.
The tour was great and Julia was amazing! She was full of information and helpful tips and she was wonderful to be around. We will definitely be rebooking on our next trip!
I was recommended this tour by a friend, who enjoyed her experience. I thoroughly enjoyed mine as well! It was really low key. There were just three of us and a guide, and that definitely made the experience special for me. Would most certainly recommend it to anyone in Rome!
We thought the tour was absolutely fantastic. Lyndy was awesome and not only did we have a great time but we learned so much. I'd happily recommend to anyone visiting rome.
We absolutely loved the tour, and Amy! She was interesting, informative, and fun, and when the tour was over, we were perfectly full, tipsy, and happy. We will definitely be doing more tours with Walks of Italy in the future.
We are still full from all the food we tasted on this tour. Our guide was wonderful and friendly, and made sure we had a great time. She even took extra time after the tour to walk us over to a great coffee place we had heard about.
Loved this tour!! One of my favorite activities during my three weeks in Italy. Our guide was wonderful - very informative, knew the locals, chose the most amazing food! I'd definitely recommend this to anyone - foodie or not - who visits Rome!

Our guide was incredible. So knowledgable and very helpful. She even held our baby so we could make our pizzas together.

I loved this tour! Marta was a perfect guide and the vendors we visited were so warm and welcoming. I was very impressed with the number of food samplings we had, including wine and the pizza. This was one of the highlights of my Rome vacation.
Great tour - Julia was incredibly informative and entertaining. We had 11 and 12 year old girls on the tour with us and they were happy with the tour from beginning to end. Of course, the adults were as well!
We loved the tour. Our guide, Julia, was fun and informative. While the information on local foods was fascinating, the food itself was delicious. Loved the quaint pizzeria where we made our own pies. Would recommend the tour and suggest requesting Julia, she was wonderful.
Unfortunately, I forgot our tour guides name. She was fantastic. She really knew her stuff and her personal connections and interactions with the people in the market and stores we visited really made it better.
We had such a great time on this tour! Julia is awesome! I would recommend this tour for everybody.
This was by the best tour that my wife and I were on while in Italy. Marta was very knowledgeable and it was clear that she had a good relation with the vendors. My wife and I said that when we come back we would try to schedule tours with her again.
Marta, our guid was incredible!!! We loved the trip and would recommend it to anyone.
She gave a wonderful tour and I would recommend her highly
Julia was fantastico! She was so informative and her sense of humor was fun. We had a great time and felt the value for our money was quite high. I will recommend Walks of Italy. Grazie.

Tasting and pizza Making tour was just perfect. Andre the guide was humor personal as well as knowledgeable. All aspects were well organized without stress. We were there With our grandson 10 years and he was very included by Andre and just loved Every minute.
Oct. 16 we had a superb market tour with tastings and panache. Guide is a jewel. Made our own pizza and devoured it. Don't miss this personalized, charming tour.
My wife and I enjoyed every second of the Rome Food Tour, and Marta was a fantastic guide! She was fun, helpful, and very knowledgeable about Roman cuisine. I would recommend this tour to all of my family and friends - and any other foodies out there.
This was our second visit to Rome and again, we took advantage of the amazing tours offered by Walking Tours of Italy. We are always thrilled by the quality of the tours and the incredibly well informed guides
Andrea was super informative and a great tour guide. He allowed us ample time to ask questions and get a good taste of all the market's offerings. Loredana in the office was also very responsive and helpful when we had questions about the timing of the tour and our schedule in Rome.
Great tour. Andrea was informative and engaging, what a nice guy.
The tour was excellent and so was our tour guide. It was everything I had hoped it would be. I would take another one next time we are in Rome. Thank you
We really enjoyed our tour with Marta. I would give it a ten out of ten
All of our tours were wonderful - the guides knew so much about the history of their respective venue and they made the tours enjoyable as well.
Our Rome Food Tour was Oct. 4, 2014. Very enjoyable! Loved the tastings at the farmer's market, the bread bakery and cheese shop with no name. Making our own pizza was lots of fun! Our Guide was delightful!
The tour was lively and fun. Andrea was well informed and had an easy manner that made him a pleasure to be around.
This was a great tour. Our guide was terrific and we saw and tasted lots of wonderful food.
We had the following tour guides: Amy/Twilight; Guido/Colosseum; Can't remember Pizza Making and Vatican but they were all wonderful in their own unique ways. We really loved Amy and Guido.
Sylvie and the Rome foood tour with Andreas. We were impressed with all of the tours and the guides. We would highly recommend this tour group and these guides. The small groups were ideal and the tours were from an American perspective. They were well organized and timely.
Thoroughly enjoyable from beginning to end! Marta was a entertaining and knowledgeable guide with a wicked sense of humour! Every establishment we visited gave us a great welcome and could not have been more welcoming/helpful/informative. 5 stars all the way!
Terrific tour and guide
Andreas was great! Very knowledgeable and personable.
his tour was amazing! It was a nice small group and our tour guide was very knowledgable and attentive. There was so much food to try and the pizza making was nice and relaxing. I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone who visits Rome.
This was a wonderful tour with Gaia and definitely topped my teenage daughter's list of all our Rome activities. Great pace and delightful tastes. And Gaia was so personable and wonderful. So glad we found this tour. Thank you!
Marta was amazing, so informative. This tour was an excellant introduction to the markets and and buying quality foods in Italy. I would highly recommend it to anyone traveling in Italy. We did this our first day and took what we learned and used it every day for the next 18 days.
This was our favorite tour in Rome. Marta was a great guide and it was a wonderful break from the churches, art, and culture. Definitely, do not eat before the tour. You will eat and drink more than a meal's worth of tastings.
Lovely informative tour with Marta, really enjoyed the food.
We toured with Marta. I should have booked all my Italy trips with Walks of Italy. Definitely best tour we took.
Marta was very knowledgeable and the food was absolutely fantastic. So much too eat, so many yummy tastes and making the pizza was the icing on the cake. Really first rate tour. My kids (ages 11 and 13) put this tour as their favorite thing of our three week tour of Italy.
Had an amazing tour with Cosimo! Highly recommend this tour! Well worth the price for all the food you get to try. Pizza making is definitely the highlight!
We had a private food tour with Jeanette for our family of five. She was wonderful can't say enough good thing about her. One of us had allergies. Two young teenagers who loved here. My husband and I are older. She connected well with all of us. Would request here again
An interesting and enjoyable morning spent in the company of our very own bona fide Italian guide. 5* Thank you.
Best tour ever!! Our guide was entertaining informative and friendly Not only did the kids LOVE the authentic neopolitan pizza but the chesse, meat, olive oil, balsamic, bread was over the top We had low expectations but it was tremendous!
Great tour! We thoroughly enjoyed Joseph's knowledge and humor. We are excited to apply our pizza making experience at home. A nice relaxing interlude to all of Rome's history.
Did the food/wine tasting tour in Florence with Ishmael and the food/wine/pizza-making tour in Rome with Marta. Both guides were awesome and the tours were the two best we had during our stay in Italy.
Great morning. Our guide was fun, informative, friendly and kept the morning moving at a nice pace. Really enjoyed it.
My 16 yr old Granddaughter and I had the best time on this tour. Marta was a terrific guide, very knowledgable, and full of fun. I would absolutely recommend this tour. Thank you Marta for a great time! Your office staff was also great to deal with and very helpful.

The tour was excellent and Marta our guide spoke very good English and was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Simona was an excellent guide; showing us things that we would never learn by ourselves. She made an extra effort to accommodate us with our to small children! I highly recommend Simona and the Rome food tour to anyone!
Excellent tour... everything perfect! would and will tell others about your company. we had a great experience. thank you
What a wonderful way to experience Rome. We so enjoyed the authentic markets and shops. Making the pizzas was so much fun. Joseph was wonderful and we so enjoyed his knowledge.
Our food tour with Simona was the absolute highlight of our trip to Rome!! She was engaging, entertaining, and very knowledgable in many respects.
We had an amazing time touring the markets with Joseph and making pizza! We were only in Rome for a few days, so it was the perfect way to see (and eat) the highlights, and still feel like we got a comprehensive taste of Rome. Thanks so much!
A great tour for families - the kids loved tasting and seeing all the different food and, of course, making pizza.
We were on the pizza making tour. Josef was wonderful. We loved the shops we visited and the things we learned. wished I had taken this tour the first day I was in Rome

Some points for improvement, maybe focusing on the market and not only one single store there.

Amy was great. The food tour was wonderful. Our only issue was that we were so full after our tour we were unable to eat the pizza we cooked.
Great guide. Would have loved to know a bit more about the market itself though.

We had a fabulous time on our food tour with Mattia. He was so friendly, welcoming, and knowledgeable.
We had Melanie and she was amazing!! We actually did the bone crypts tour with her Tuesday and enjoyed her so much we booked the food tour Friday with her. She was our best guide that we had all week while in Rome. She was so polite and personable. We felt like we really got a true behind the scenes look into Rome. She stayed after and gave restaurant recommendations which did not dissappoint. We can't express how much we enjoyed her! Thank you for everything!! Austin and Megan
