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 completely off the beaten paths.

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

As Romans do, we will start with an amazing espresso in one of the last “Torrefazione” (coffee roasting) of the city.

We will then jump in the smallest local market of the city center and see where Romans buy their daily products.

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

The experience will continue with a typical Roman street food mix: crunchy pizza and fried snack.

To end the experience, we will taste the best gelato of the neighborhood, prepared with fresh ingredients following the traditional family recipe.

Additional information:
- The tastings can vary depending on the availability of fresh and season products. The above description is meant to provide an idea of the experience, not to list exactly all the tastings.

- The visit of the Local market depends on the opening time and might not be always available

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.

This was my 2nd tour with Chiara. She is a great story teller and clearly has wonderful relationships with all of the businesses we visited! All of the food we ate was delicious and I truly did feel like I was eating like a local Roman!

We loved it! Chiara was our host and Manuela came too. We got to explore the neighborhood of Monti, and Chiara’s stories were fantastic! She had pictures of the area before it was excavated, and explained a lot of the history. She was great! Also, she taught us about Italian coffee and we got lots of treats. She took us to a local market and we got to sample cheeses and meats and olives. It was the best!

This tour was everything you could hope for! When you come to Rome you should always “do as the Romans do”, and this tour was nothing short of an incredible way to participate in local Roman cuisine. A 10 out of 10. Our tour guide Chiara, was so friendly and answered all of our questions. I would highly recommend! Bennisimo!

This was a wonderful way to spend a morning in Rome. Chiara was a wonderful host and very knowledgable expert of the local history. It was great to have a dedicated archaeologist to explain the details of what you see in Rome as well as learn about how the locals approach food. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking for a more personal Roman cultural experience.
