The tour unfolds in two neighborhoods in the center of the capital: Monti and Esquilino for a duration of about 3 and a half hours.


Monti is the first district within the heart of the city. With its narrow streets and alleyways full of shops and clubs it offers many spaces where you can dine, or simply have a drink. A tourist district, yes, but evocative, full of history and things to discover. The Esquilino is less recognised than Monti, and perhaps for this reason, it is more true, original and rich in historical shops where the locals routinely go, and hereby often remains unknown to the visitors of the city.

Both districts have historical testimonies that start from the 6th century BC, passing through Imperial Rome, to the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the unification of Italy and to the present day.
With such a history, there are an abundance of stories and legends, leaving the listener stunned and fascinated.

Your local guide will take you on foot through the wonders of history and palate on a journey that is not too demanding, but will involve a good amount of walking alongside some stairs. So arm yourself with sneakers and... an empty stomach!
Morning tour departure at 9.30.

We will be happy to share with you our love for Italian food, and Roman in particular!

In between the tasters, your guide will tell you stories and anecdotes related to the city, the neighborhood, and especially to food; detached from the most common tourist routes.

If you want to experience real authentic Italian cuisine interspersed with this beautiful city's food and social history, this is the best tour for you! You will easily not forget it!

The Tour (What You Will Eat And Drink): 

You will start the tour with a fantastic coffee toasted italian style (or cappuccino) with cornetto,then in one of the oldest patisseries in the area, the "maritozzo" (a roman typical breakfast cake full of whipped cream).

Then you will continue with pizza: white, red, and with mortadella, the so called "pizza e mortazza",the most typical, from a traditional baker in the Esquilino neighborhood.

In another stop you could try the legendary supplì (fried rice balls stuffed with stringy mozzarella), the most famous Roman street food together with "chinotto", a traditional italian frizzy drink.

Leading on from this, you simply cannot miss the famous roman pasta; you will enjoy two different kinds of it: gricia and cacio e pepe, and a glass of red local wine.

To close the tour, a tiramisù or a refreshing homemade ice cream awaits you, your choice!
