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.

Guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgable and really helped with all the questions we had
Marta was an excellent guide. She was very knowledgeable about all the foods we were learning about. The pizza making was especially fun for the whole family. My 3 boys ages 17, 14, and 9 really enjoyed making the pizzas. It was a wonderful tour and I would highly recommend it.
I loved this tour. I'm a big foodie! It was great to taste the fresh local foods. I also loved making my own pizza. It was a great experience.

Such an amazing tour! Andrea was great. The tour was so relaxed and well organized. We all loved it.

Francesca was awesome! We had her as a guide again for the tour to Pompei. And the pizza was delicious!
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.
Had a lot of fun and good food! It was my second Walks event.
We thoroughly enjoyed the trip as a result of the really interesting knowledge of our guide and the quality of the venues/tastings experienced.

Kylie was great, thank you so much for a wonderful experience.
this was one of the highlights of our trip! the guide was great and all the tastings were delicious. my only complaint is that we didn't get to try as many cheeses as i had hoped for.
What a wonderfully fun and informative tour! We really enjoyed our guide and we learned so much about meats, cheeses, olive oils, balsamic, and pizza making! Would definitely recommend this tour and company to anyone traveling to Italy!

Enjoyed the whole tour , the tastings, and the knowledge of the guide. Keep up the good work.
We loved our time with Erica! We really enjoyed every facet of this tour. Everyone in our group of 4 had previously been to Rome, but we all still learned something new! Besides being educational, the tour was a lot of fun!
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

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 was awesome and showed great enthusiasm. She was well informed. I'd recommend this tour to anyone.
The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The food was great!

This tour was very informative and provided us with an opportunity to sample some of the foods of the market. Our guide was able to offer some great food tips and the pizza-making was great. Our guide was very knowledgeable but seemed just slightly disinterested.

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 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!

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 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.

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.

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

Again, this young lady was highly knowledgeable on the topic of the various foods that she talked about and wonderfully enthusiastic in her presentation! The tasting tour was great fun, the group that we were in was most enjoyable and by the time we arrived at the pizza shop to make our lunch, we were all "best" friends and had a wonderful conversation at the table! I have some great pictures of the event and think about it with great fondness! Our guide was exceptional! Please tell her that Phil and I still think about our tour with her! It was fabulous.

Marta was an excellent guide. She was very knowledgeable about all the foods we were learning about. The pizza making was especially fun for the whole family. My 3 boys ages 17, 14, and 9 really enjoyed making the pizzas. It was a wonderful tour and I would highly recommend it.
I loved this tour. I'm a big foodie! It was great to taste the fresh local foods. I also loved making my own pizza. It was a great experience.
I think it was one of the best decisions we made, to go on this walk. Marta was amazing and witty. It was just not the places where she took us but how she delivered the why behind it all that made it special. She is very passionate about food and Italy, which clearly showed. Thanks a lot for a great time!

Marta was funny, informative and even took us to her favorite gelato spot afterwords! Great tour and amazing guide, recommending her to all my friends!
Such an amazing tour! Andrea was great. The tour was so relaxed and well organized. We all loved it.
Walks of Italy was one of our favorite events during our 10 day trip around Europe. Marta was fun, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to about anything Rome/Italy related. The only suggestion I would have would be to include a short snippet on pasta given the integral part of Italy's history and culture that pasta plays. Walks of Italy was a great tour, and I'll recommend it to all my friends who plan to travel to Rome.

Julia made the entire experience wonderful with her charm, wit & personal touch. We started & ended right on-time. It was a fun hands-on introduction to the Campo di Fiori markets with insight to the products of the region. Julia had a great relationship with the vendors & we received special attention. I would definitely try a Walks of Italy tour again thanks to Julia!!

Small group, well informed, enjoyable day.
This was an add on for us. We had booked the Colosseum VIP tour and it closed unexpectedly on the day of our tour. You graciously offered us a free city tour and we booked this one. I am so happy we had the opportunity to go on this tour. Our guide was amazing and interesting and fun. We sampled wonderful cheeses, meats, olive oils and balsamics. Making the pizza was just fun. I would recommend this tour to anyone. thank you for letting us take part!!!
Excellent way to spend Thanksgiving morning at the market...then making our own pizza...awesome!
Francesca was awesome! We had her as a guide again for the tour to Pompei. And the pizza was delicious!

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.

Had a lot of fun and good food! It was my second Walks event.
Loved this walk and it was just what I was looking for in a food tour. It was an excellent variety of food choices ( meat, cheese, bakery, and the market); the pizza making was great and the resulting meal was delicious. Joseph was a great guide and we enjoyed his talk and sense of humor. Thanks for offering this session!
We thoroughly enjoyed the trip as a result of the really interesting knowledge of our guide and the quality of the venues/tastings experienced.
Guide was excellent! (Francesca)
Francesca was wonderful!

this was one of the highlights of our trip! the guide was great and all the tastings were delicious. my only complaint is that we didn't get to try as many cheeses as i had hoped for.
What a wonderfully fun and informative tour! We really enjoyed our guide and we learned so much about meats, cheeses, olive oils, balsamic, and pizza making! Would definitely recommend this tour and company to anyone traveling to Italy!
We were thrilled with our walking food tour and our guide Erica. She did an excellent job showing us the "Rome" she knows and lives in. Positive, insightful, fun and educational. We especially appreciated her tips on Italian culture, the neighborhoods we should visit to be around Italians (rather than the throngs of tourists) and where to eat. That evening we walked to one of those neighborhoods and had a delightful evening. We so appreciated Erica! We are sold on the value of the Walking Tours of Italy and will definitely sign up for more the next time we come.
Melanie was a wonderful guide - very knowledgeable and enthusiastic!! I really enjoyed my tour with her and would definitely recommend (already have in fact) to my friends!

A lot of fun!
Great tour, my daughter had so much fun. Everyone especially our tour guide was exceptional. Very knowledgable, friendly, organized and professional. Would highly recommend your company👍😃 Thanks so very much, Deanna and Alysha Burnett, from Canada
Melanie was amazing. She gave a great mix of history and food knowledge. She was honest and easy to talk to. Very receptive to questions. Would love to take a tour with her again
Enjoyed the whole tour , the tastings, and the knowledge of the guide. Keep up the good work.
We loved our time with Erica! We really enjoyed every facet of this tour. Everyone in our group of 4 had previously been to Rome, but we all still learned something new! Besides being educational, the tour was a lot of fun!
