Explore Trastevere and taste typical Roman street food
Trastevere is considered one of the most typical districts of Rome. This neighborhood is a labyrinth made of tiny streets, small shops, and all kinds of eateries. Trastevere, whose name means ‘across the Tiber’, hides a lot of historical spots too — among them Piazza Trilussa, dedicated to a famous Roman poet, the Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere, probably the first Christian church in Rome, and a lot more. Local food is, without a doubt, the leitmotiv of the tour itself, as Trastevere is full of typical Roman takeaways and restaurants.
Trastevere remains very traditional and boasts the presence of many old-school craftsmen and traders. Discover their work, unchanged by modernity, like the cold cuts store, where you can taste salami and cheese cured in the local Italian tradition. Your guide shows you off-the-beaten-path spots and helps you familiarize yourself with the district, full of local restaurants and bars and pubs where young locals spend their nights having fun with friends.
The tour includes around six different food tastings. You taste one of the best pizzas in town, savor the greatest salumi like local Porchetta, and cheese like Parmiggiano Reggiano. You also try Roman pastries from a local family bakery established in 1940.
Before the last tasting, step on Sistus bridge on the Tiber and take pictures of the big Cupolone, the Saint Peter’s dome that reveals itself in the background. This tour is a wonderful option to discover the real Roman culture and its food! Don’t miss it!
