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

Miami Culinary Tours – Little Havana Food Tour

Get to know Miami beyond South Beach and venture to off-the-beaten-path places for curious eaters. This Food Tour is all about experiencing Traditional (Rustic) Cuban Cuisine.

  • Visit family-owned restaurants, and get the story behind the foods.
  • Our specialty is smaller, non-touristy, more remotely located hole-in-the-wall-type places.
  • Stories and background of the foods we sample and meet the people who make them.
  • We avoid crowds so you can experience the intimate charm of each unique place we visit.

Meet in Little Havana, a lively, family-friendly neighborhood, and begin a guided edible journey through one of Miami’s oldest neighborhoods. Learn about traditional, rustic Cuban cuisine by tasting your way through the must-visit street in the area — Calle Ocho. This tour is designed for both locals and visitors who want to learn about the area’s history while tasting some of the most delicious foods that have been prepared by the same families from recipes handed down through generations. Meet local artists, watch cigar rollers, take a peek at Domino Park – all while getting the insights of a vibrant Miami neighborhood.

“And while Little Havana has always been a mouthwatering Mecca of Cuban food, visiting this neighborhood on a Miami Culinary Tour is like having your own private Rosetta Stone, without all the annoying repetition.”
