What you'll do
We will enter the shops, bakeries, cafes, bars, butcheries, pastryshops and markets. We will taste specialities, selections of food, fresh made courses, finger food, wine, desserts, gelato. You will walk with me in Testaccio during a normal morning and we will relax far from the touristic areas. We'll seat in a market surrounded by the cahotic life of vendors, families, clinking cups of espresso and cappuccino. We will discover the Roman food and mingle with the locals, while chatting and meeting people and stand owners. You will choose only what you like among the many delicacies we will be offered: everything will be fresh and made express. Vegetarians and Vegans are welcome and will be not disappointed!
I am native of Rome and I have a master degree in art and history: I've been working for years guiding people to the major attractions, like the Vatican and Colosseum. But my passion is food! I know all the shopkeepers and stand owners in Testaccio where i am used to take my guests. I encourage everybody to fully embrace the Roman cuisine and the local wine, and spend time with me or Sylvia (my co-host for this experience) in Testaccio for an unforgettable culinary experience. The price of the food is not included but this works best for you as you can choose only what you like, at a very reasonable price.

Where you'll be
I will take you in a vibrant Roman neighborhood, during a normal day. Testaccio is an old working class area, turning fast in a gentrificated district where traditional food is along side with modern finger food. Old families running old food stalls are next to modern gourmet stands that have evolved the traditional flavour and delicacies of the roman cuisine. It is the perfect place where to relax and have a connection with the local life style.
