How to Choose a Roman Food and Wine Experience

Rome is one of the top gastronomic destinations in the world making it the ideal place to take a food tour or wine tasting. However, with such an overwhelming choice of culinary tours to choose from, how can you pick the best experience for you?
Read our top tips for selecting the perfect food and wine tour in Rome to suit your needs:


The historic center of Rome is home to most of the city’s major sights and monuments which unfortunately makes it a hive of tourist trap restaurants selling poor quality food at high prices. Luckily there are still some hidden gems known only to the locals. Taking a culinary walking tour in the areas around Piazza Navona and Campo de’ Fiori allows you to roam the quiet, picturesque backstreets and get the insider know-how on how to avoid being ripped-off, as well as giving you the chance to sample some of Rome’s most delicious street food, pizza and gelato.

Another excellent way to learn about the authentic food of Rome is to take a market tour. Whether you opt for chatting with producers at the weekly Sunday farmer’s market or eating your way through the up-and-coming Testaccio Market, getting out of the hectic city centre will give you a true glimpse into Roman life and cuisine.

Our Roman culinary experiences are divided into walking tours and sit-down tastings. Choose a walking tour if you would like to visit several different locations and see more of the Eternal City as you eat. Alternatively, if your legs are tired from all the sightseeing a visit to Rome entails (or if you would prefer a more relaxing experience) try a sit-down tasting instead. Sample delicious cheeses and wines with an expert sommelier, watch real buffalo mozzarella being made, kick back at sunset with a typical Italian ‘aperitivo’ or savor traditional Roman pasta dishes at lunchtime. Whichever you choose, this is a great way to eat and learn without the exertion.

How long?

Although the temptation is to opt for a long, more generic, food tour, considering both stamina and stomach space, a shorter, concentrated experience can be more enjoyable and also more convenient for families with young children or those with limited time in Rome.

Local Aromas tours and tastings are divided into separate categories covering all varieties of Italian foods and wines, providing in-depth, 90-minute experiences with local experts which take place throughout the day from breakfast to evening. This allows you to choose exactly what you are interested in, easily slot a tour into a busy schedule or book several separate tours spread out over a few days.
