Our guide Roberto was excellent. He was very approachable and provided a lot of very interesting information on both the Jewish Ghetto and the Campo de Fiori area. All of the food was excellent. You definitely eat a lot so come to the tour on an empty stomach. I would highly recommend this tour for a fun night out, to sample some really good food, and to get to see a different side of the city at night.
We took a taxi to the meeting point, where we met our guide. As we walked around the Jewish ghetto, she filled us in on the history of the place and the relationship to both Roman past and history during the last 70 years. Each food stop featured a different dish (I loved the garlic artichokes). We had a pasta dish in an ancient theater. The dessert was taramisu and Gelati). Along with the beautiful piazza’s we saw a touching memorial to the holocaust victims (Golden name plates with their history in front of their former homes)
Wow! What a great time had by all! Our guide Claudia was passionate about her subject matter and really taught us so much about the Jewish Ghetto, the surrounding areas, the culture, and of course, the food! Make sure to go with an empty stomach...you will eat a lot of delicious food! We highly recommend this tour! Robert and Lolly Romero
What an amazing experience! I wish I had written down the guides name, as he was an absolute joy. He definitely went above and beyond during our tour. This tour is not to be missed, however, make sure to skip lunch, as you will never do justice to the food otherwise. Also, when stopping for tiramisu, I highly recommend the pistachio. Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared for an entertaining, informative, and delicious evening.
The tour begins near the jewish ghetto and is a small group so you do not feel overwhelmed. Our guide was very friendly and the tour was 50/50 historical vs food sightseeing. The portions of both wine/beer and food were very generous and our group wasn't able to finish the food on a lot of the stops. I would very highly recommend this, there is a lot of walking if you are wary of that. I wish we could have done the food tour on our first day in Rome so we could have backtracked to visit some of the places again, which we did our last few days in Rome
Roberto was an engaging, entertaining, educational and thoughtful tour guide through the Jewish Ghetto. His commentary on the various sites included historical and present-day observations. We got a layered and nuanced look at the district and Rome's complex history. He was patient, encouraged questions and has a great sense of humor. We didn't have to wait too long for the food and for some of us the first stop -- for friend artichokes -- was a key highlight. In fact, our party of four returned the next day to indulge in more of the artichoke treat and we encountered another group of four from our previous night's tour doing the same thing! The choice of food and wine stops introduced us to a wide variety of Rome's specialties. After the artichokes, we sampled two varieties of pizza, a wide selection of antipasti, and then we headed to the pasta course in a charming spot with artifacts from early Rome incorporated into our dining room. By the end we were stuffed with history, great food and memories of a delightful evening in Rome. We highly recommend this tour!
Lots of Fun! Recommended for everyone Foodie or not ! Our guide, Roberto, expertly combined history and stories with the walking tour of wonderful food stops. Eggplant Parmesan, tiramisu stop and Sant Eustachio coffee were standout treats. Walking pace and specific stops were flexible to fit the group. Bring a light jacket for an evening tour mid-May 2018.
This is the second time we have done the food and wine tour . We meet like minded people from around the world, a guided tour of some of the not so often seen sights, fantastic nightlife, great local food and wine and good value for money. We can't recommend it highly enough.
