From here we will visit historic shops and delis to try Roman specialties as well as stopping at brand new establishments that are re-imagining classic Roman dishes.
After tasting spectacular cured meats, cheeses, pizza and supplì, we will grab a refreshing gelato at one of the best places in Rome before heading for a sweet finale at an award-winning bakery.
During the tour not only will you taste amazing foods, you will also meet the people behind them as we stop to chat to vendors and shopkeepers. Fully immerse yourself in the laid-back daily life with this gastronomic experience in one of Rome's most authentic neighbourhoods.

Where you'll be

Trastevere is often described as a village in the city of Rome due to its tight-knit community of local 'Trasteverini'. On this food tour we will join these locals as they go about their daily life, visiting market stalls and businesses which have been family-run for generations as well as some modern eateries that have taken the Rome food scene by storm.

If you want to taste amazing local food, experience a wonderful neighbourhood with a truly local feel and on top of that accompanied by a very nice and welcoming guide/host, who has a true passion and great knowledge for everything about Italian food, then this tour is a must for your visit in Rome! My boyfriend and I are still dreaming of the delicious food Kate introduced us to on the afternoon we spent with her in Trastevere - Kate was wonderful to hang out with and managed to create a fun and laid back atmosphere, which made it a memorable experience and one of the highlights of our time in Rome!

This was the best tour we have ever done! Kate was incredible, and so wonderfully accommodating with our two year old toddler. The (many many) samples are not small, and everything was fantastic and delicious! Come hungry because you will leave stuffed, for sure. Kate also knows all the shop owners and it really feels so personal, like you're being invited into the real inside of Rome and life here. Amazing value, considering all we ate, and a truly amazing experience with the best guide.

Great experience!! I spent 2 hours with Kate who is very friendly, discovering typical food in Trastevere. She is living in Roma since 20 years. She loves eating products of high quality and knows personally many people / producers (such as the backer or butcher) in the neighborhood. It was as if I was with a good friend of mine and went out for eating (and chat 😊) in my own aera where I am in expert with local food. Highly recommended 👌🏻 go with an empty stomach you will love it !!
