Rome: Eternal Delicacies (EN)
Unforgetably delicious and a great experience!
Rome, the city of 7 hills, is famous for its culinary diversity. The simple, but highly versatile "cucina povera" - "poor man’s cuisine" - is the soul of Roman hospitality. Cozy Trattorias and Osterias are the Romans’ living and dining rooms - the places where they meet up, eat and drink, gossip and laugh. Do as the Romans do and sample all the delights of the local cuisine in exceptional places.
Your Food Hopping event is like a multi-course meal, where you experience a new location and taste a different food or drink specialty with each course - accompanied by surprising insights and amusing anecdotes about the Eternal City.
Some highlights of your Food Hopping food tour Rome:
- Walking through this inconspicuous gate, you feel like you’ve been transported back in time to a place of silence and seclusion in the center of the hustling and bustling city. In the historical ambience of this hidden jewel, where in earlier times friars pondered the meaning of life, you get into the mood for your Food Hopping tour with a bubbling Prosecco.
- Stars like Terence Hill, Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson have enjoyed this restaurant’s famous specialty, right in the middle of the ancient Jewish ghetto of Rome. While savoring this delicacy, you will learn from your Food Hopping guide why, surprisingly, the stalk is the best part of this Roman food speciality...
- Even the Roman legionaries had these provisions in their field pack – try it freshly cut with two other delicacies from the Lazio region in a Salumeria, which has been family-run since 1935. Osvaldo, the owner, proudly points to an old black and white photo on the wall, which shows him as a child in the shop.
- At the other stops, you’ll encounter a pizza that doesn’t blush, attempt to pull "phone cords" like a local, try the two most famous pasta dishes of Rome in the family business of Agostino and Maria and much, much more.
