Meet your foodie local host close to St. Mary Major Basilica and be ready for a nice, easy-going gourmet stroll in one of the coolest areas of Rome city center: Monti ‘rione’.

This place is very popular among local people, especially at night. But it is during the day that you will experience the authentic atmosphere of a lively area that is different from others in a town is still full of artisans, historical shops and local people.

Let’s stop to taste an amazing gelato from one of the best shops in town; learning how to distinguish good gelato from ice-cream.

Then head off to taste a very typical Italian street food: panino. Here you’ll have the opportunity to taste a gourmet creation by a street-food chef who is famous, to select local and traditional ingredients and combining those to create new flavors.

At every stop your foodie guide will tell you the history and the legend of recipes you are tasting for deep immersion into culture of food in Rome.

A few more steps and we’ll discover tiny squares and streets. You will see people living a ‘dolce vita style,‘ and in every corner an amazing view and sight that only Rome can offer. Continue strolling to one of the historical grocery shops of Rome, the oldest in the area for a cheese and local products tasting. Then visit the famous bakery to taste some roman-style pizza. Espresso coffee will close your tasting journey.

This will provide you enough food to skip the lunch and be ready to carry on your visit to the City.

Colosseum and Piazza Venezia are located a two minutes’ walk from the end of tour. Your foodie guide will provide you a very useful list with recommendations for eating in the next days. This is an amazing opportunity to live a morning off the beaten path, in a very local style.
