Tour description

Rome’s street food scene is blossoming, attracting foodie fanatics from all over the world to come and sample its delicious offerings. Situated around Campo de' Fiori, the city's last daily open-air market, you'll find a cornucopia of culinary delights served up to satisfy discerning travelers.

On your private Roman street food tour, your foodie guide will take you to discover the city's best loved spots. In the warm Roman sun and rejuvenating breeze, go in search of pizza, supplì, trapizzino, baccalà, gelato, and a whole host of other beloved staples of delicious Roman street food.

Start with a slice or two of freshly baked pizza

Indulge in long, thin strips of crispy Roman pizza smothered with an array of toppings and then sliced and sold by weight. No real Roman can resist a slice of pizza bianca made freshly in the morning and eaten on the way to work.

Seek out some supplì too as you walk Rome's historic streets. These delicious treats of fried goodness are Rome's answer to arancini: pomodoro-coated risotto, warm, gooey mozzarella, and a rich ragù sauce oozing from a deep-fried, breadcrumb ball.

Fry me to the moon at a local friggitoria

Your private Roman street food tour can take you to explore Rome's fried food scene. Bit into a crispy fried fillet of baccalà (salted cod) or some zucchini flowers stuffed with mozzarella and anchovy. Italians aren't well known for deep-frying its food. But when they do, mamma mia, they don't half do it well.

To wash down this Roman street food, we'll go in search of whichever drinks you like. Italy is of course most famous for its red, white, and sparkling wine, but the country is undergoing a renaissance in its beer. From IPAs to stouts, blondes to ambers, your guide will know exactly where to take you depending on what you want.

Linger over gelato - the creamy stuff of dreams

No Roman street food tour would be complete without going for gelato. Eating gelato by the bucketload is a fundamental part of Italian identity, wherever in the country and at whatever age. Avoiding Rome's many tourist traps, your guide will take you to an artisanal gelateria where in a cone or a cup you can indulge in this sweet delight.

To finish up this moving feast, why not take a traditional caffè (shot of espresso). Taken at the bar, alongside the locals, it's the perfect energiser for the rest of your day in Rome.
