Reviewed by FoodTourFinder!
See our review in the Comments section


With its narrow cobblestone streets and laneways, Trastevere is the quintessential Roman neighborhood. While by night it is a happening destination for tourists and locals, during the day, Trastevere is like a small village with its timeless and artisan shops serving the same local families for generations.

On this 4-hour guided walking food tour we eat our way through the neighborhood enjoying 10 delicious food tastings. Visit the local, colorful outdoor food market and meet the wonderful families working hard to preserve Roman food traditions. This tour features some unique cultural and historical sites that few tourists get an opportunity to see. Join us for a day like no other.

  • Sample the fresh ingredients at one of Rome’s most historic outdoor food markets
  • Meet the Polica family who have been selling meats and cheeses at Antica Caciara, their famous delicatessen since 1900
  • Find out quickly why Romans love their suppli’ (mouthwatering fried risotto ball)
  • Homemade ravioli and two other daily pasta specials with wine and fresh bread at a local Osteria
  • Meet Signora Vera, the neighborhood resident pastry chef for 40 years, and taste what she created fresh that day
  • Get educated on real-deal gelato at Fatamorgana, the gelateria that introduced Romans to gourmet gelato
  • Enjoy award-winning homemade dessert at Spirito di Vino, the 35th ranked restaurant on TripAdvisor out of over 5000 in Rome.
  • Savor Italy’s famous moscato (dessert wine) in a wine cellar that’s older than the Colosseum

One Response to Eating Italy Food Tours: Daylight Trastevere Tour – Rome, Italy

    This tour is right up there with the very best food tours we’ve reviewed! Trastevere is a real “foodie” neighborhood, with lots of little shops that are still family-owned. Our guide, Sebastiana, was delightful, and wove local history, personal stories of the owners and food information into the tour throughout. Following quite a few stops at local food shops (including tastes of pastry, cheese, prosciutto, risotto balls called suppli, porchetta, gelato and fruit from the market), you head to a restaurant for samples of three types of pasta (with wine!), a little pre-dessert at an adorable cookie factory, then dessert and a visit to a Roman-era wine cellar at a second restaurant. Will this tour fill you up? Si, si, si! You’ll also get an education about which gelato spots serve the “real stuff” and walk away with a comprehensive brochure listing all the tour’s stops, plus suggestions for recommended dining all around Rome and a few insider tips for touring the city, too. You’ll get the feeling that these guys don’t just want to give you a great food tour – they want you to have a wonderful time throughout your visit. That level of caring makes Eating Italy’s tours a real standout! [NOTE: They also offer an evening Trastevere tour, and other tours around Rome and Italy]
