What you'll do

If you are searching for a unique experience that combines Food, History and Secret Places in the oldest District of Rome, this is the experience for you.

Rione Monti is a quiet treasure, very close to the Colosseum and Forum, but complitly off the beaten paths.

In 90 minutes you will taste some of the most famous products of our culture, in hidden places where only Romans go, and where we are sure you'll go back many times during your stay.

Being all archeologists, for the first part of the experience we will take a "time machine" together, showing you around amazing little details around the area, secret passages and hidden ruins that talk about the daily life of 2000 years of history.

We are even a big foodies and in the second part of the experience, we will taste the best of Rome starting with a an amazing espresso in one of the last “Torrefazione” (coffee roastery) of the city.

We will then jump in the smallest local market of the city center, having a Rustico (Typical Italian savory pie)just out of the oven.

Out off the beaten paths, we will taste some amazing cheeses and salami from a tiny grocery of the area.

Our day will continue with a deep fried Suppli and a round crunchy Pizza: two of Rome's best street food products.

We will finish with a "Maritozzo" a sweet roman tradition, really hard to find in other places =)

Where you'll be

Among the most picturesque districts of Rome, there undoubtedly is the Rione Monti, that - more than any others - has maintained that authentic atmosphere described in the film "La dolce vita" by Federico Fellini. You'll find yourself walking around the narrow lanes characterised by the ever-present cobblestones, surrounded by elegant buildings and shops with old and worn signs.

Esperienza fantastica!! Se volete immergervi nella vera cultura e nei veri sapori di Roma questa attività è assolutamente da provare. non il solito tour turistico, ragazzi preparatissimi che sanno trasmettere la loro passione per la città. Peccato non si possano mettere più stelle, grazie a Chiara che ci ha accompagnati!

Nous avons été accueilli par Chiara, personne solaire, souriante et très sympathique. Nous avons été immédiatement mis dans le bain par son professionnalisme et sa passion tant culinaire que historique. Je recommande chaleureusement cette activité et me réjouis d’ores d’en faire une autre avec eux.

Good tour, albeit I expected more stops and more things to taste, so left a bit dissapointed unfortunately. The guide was however very friendly, very informative and really seemed to want to share her passion for Rome and food!

Our guide Stefano was the best! He took us around to all the local shops and we got to sample coffee and pastries from different regions of Italy. Along the way he shared with us the history of Rome and some interesting details that we wouldn't have noticed without an expert archeologist!
