🧀 Cheese and prosciutto at Antica Caciara since 1900

Signor Roberto, whose family has run the shop for over a century, stepped behind the counter at the age of 13 and now he is over 70! With Roberto, you will taste and talk about his refined selection of cheeses and Italian cured meats. You will try the most valuable delicacies like Prosciutto di Parma and Speck Alto Adige hams, Pecorino Romano sheep’s cheese, known since the ancient Roman times, as well as a cult 30-month-old Parmigiano Reggiano cheese made from top quality raw milk! Despite globalization, the only true Parmigiano is exclusively made and aged in a small area of northern Italy around Parma and Reggio Emilia.

🍕 Roman pizza baked in front of you!

Hidden in a small picturesque street, this is one of those pizzerias that every local knows. Pizza at ‘Ivo a Trastevere’ is made from 100% natural and yeast-free dough, which makes it easy to digest. This means there is always room for another slice! You will be offered pizza with Gorgonzola and pear, the Diavola with spicy salami and, of course, the favorite pizza of every second Italian – Margherita with buffalo mozzarella and fresh Pacchino tomatoes. You will see how your pizza is prepared: the dough is rolled out thinly, generously topped and baked in a wood-burning oven. 1-2 minutes and your pizza is ready!

🍷 Italian DOCG wine tasting at Enoteca Ferrara

Wine bars, called enotecas, are an integral part of Roman life and open their doors at the sacred hour of 6pm. Aperitivo time begins! Trastevere is considered to be an area with a particularly fun reputation – you will not find such colorful aperitifs in any other part of Rome! In the most famous wine bar, Enoteca Ferrara, you will be offered the noble red wine from Tuscany – Nobile di Montepulciano, as well as the fragrant white wine Traminer from the slopes of the Italian Alps. You will learn from your expert guide all you ever wanted to know about the best Italian wines. Having this knowledge in hand, you will be able to choose the right bottle without hesitation and enjoy tasting wine in a completely new way, while paring it with the right food. Soon you’ll be drinking the Italian way!

🍦 Grand final with the best homemade ice cream you’ve ever tasted!

What travellers say about us

Erik G

Great and informative food tour. Andrea was a fantastic guide, as well as a great guy to be around. Great value for the money. The food was excellent and everything was highly professional. We got quick service at the places we went to, and Andrea educated us on the relevant foods in a manner that was easy to digest and with good humour too. Cannot recommend this enough.

What an incredible night in Rome! We spent our last night in Rome with and we wish we had done it sooner in the week — it was an incredible insight to Rome, Trastevere, and local food/culture. Our tour was expertly guided through Trastevere to various local shops – cheese and meat, wine, pasta and gelato. We felt like we were walking around with family! Andrea and Alesia made us feel welcome and we quickly found similar interests to talk about. Their local knowledge of the area and its history was so valuable – info you’d never get from a Rick Steves book. It was also fun to hear Andrea tell stories from his childhood and as you walk around the area he was raised in.
Make time for a experience while in Italy… maybe both tours! We were talking about it long after leaving Italy with our friends.

We loved the experience! The food was delicious and the tour was very informative and in a very small group, so it felt like a dinner with friends. Throughout the entire tour our guide Vita told us about the Italian culture and answered all our questions. Certainly highly recommended.
