It’s no secret that 90% of the reason why we love to travel is that we also like to eat. Before we head out to any destination we are looking up restaurants and best food tips before we are looking into major attractions. So when we were planning our trip to Rome we were really excited to well… eat! But we were really overwhelmed. We know what good American Italian food is but the real deal- we didn’t even know where to start.
That’s when we found Eating Italy Food Tours in Rome and thought it was the perfect solution for us. A tour where we could learn how to find the best food in Rome and sample some amazing delights along the way? Right up our alley. What we didn’t know was that it would end up being one of the highlights of our trip.
During the tour you visit seven different places and sample a myriad of different flavors, cuisines and staples to the Roman culture. You will not be hungry at the end! The tour takes place in the historic Testaccio area (which we are told means the heart of Rome). It’s a unique area that is often overlooked by tourists but there is so much to see and learn, we loved that not only do you eat delicious food you also get to tour some of the interesting historical areas as well.
Here are some of the tasties we enjoyed:
This is not a comprehensive list of all the food you sample while on the tour. Many times we gobbled up the food before we got a decent picture. That’s what happens when you pair a couple of hungry American tourists with some of the world’s best food I guess.
The best advice we can tell you is to 1) book the tour and 2) do it towards the beginning of your trip. We definitely made the jaunt back for more pizza and a few other goodies too towards the end of our trip.
*Our tour with Eating Italy Food Tours was hosted by the company but it in no way affected our opinions.
