Tour description

Testaccio has a wonderful history that almost destined the village to become the place in Rome to try real Roman food. Our food tour will take you to discover the food and architecture of this charming neighbourhood, one of Rome's most traditional.

Testaccio has a distinctively Roman spirit which hasn't suffered as the village has gentrified. In fact Testaccio is a fine example of Roman's old and new combining to create something modern and exciting. We'll take you to taste the classic Roman dishes: Cacio e Pepe, Amatriciana, Coda alla Vaccinara or Pollo alla Romana but also to some of the great new interpretations of these classics like a bolito sandwich in the market or a pizza bianca sandwich pocket filled with with stewed chicken.

The market in Testaccio is one of Rome's best: lively and characterful. Depending on the season the market is awash with green artichokes, piles of chicoria or crates of Roman Zucchini with their beautiful flowers ready to be fried. It's a great place to people watch and taste: pizza, arancini from Sicily or bruschetta crammed with fresh tomatoes, olive oil and basil.

Discover all these treats and the history of this legendary Roman Neighbourhood, with a local guide with our Testaccio food tour.
