We chose the historical centre of Rome because it has the most to offer in terms of culture, history and of course wonderful food. This is where most of the fascinating Roman ruins are found, many of them well over 2000 years old, and the food is just delicious if you know where to go. Plus, given its very central location, we can show you more than one area, including the famous Piazza Navona, Campo dei Fiori, the Jewish Ghetto.
Firstly, your local Italian guide will take you to a delightful little café at the world famous Piazza Navona, to soak up the atmosphere and taste "brewed to perfection" Italian cappuccino or espresso. Next you will try the best and most fresh pizzas in town (three types).
Your personal guide will explain the history of the square and the surrounding areas including the Jewish Ghetto, Campo dei Fiori the oldest market in town, the medieval and intimate "off the beaten paths" neighbourhood, until the Jewish Ghetto, the birthplace of Roman cuisine. Your tour will continue to a shop that specialises in Supplí, fried risotto balls and you will take a trip to the fantastic vegetable market at Campo Dei Fiori. You will get a detailed explanation of the main monuments we meet on our way and you will learn the connection with the local traditions and history.
Taste two typical Roman pastas including Carbonara, in a small restaurant near the old Jewish quarter. In one of the best delicacy shop in Rome you will enjoy the finest Italian cheeses, paired with the best wines.
Nothing better to finish the tour with a wonderful artisanal Gelato, made with the freshest ingredients, in the most charming area of Rome.
