Testaccio Market Food Tour in Rome
Introducing Our Brand New Testaccio Market Food Tour
The neighborhood of Testaccio is often cited as having some of the best food in Rome, so Local Aromas is proud and excited to announce a new Testaccio Market Food Tour. Come with us as we peel back the layers of Roman cuisine from ancient times until today, tracing the history of the area and its development, eating as we go.
Testaccio has played a large part in the food of Rome; from the ancient inner city port and its surrounding warehouses which stored olive oil, grains and wine from across the Roman Empire, to the immense slaughterhouse constructed in the late 19th century which shaped the traditional Roman recipes that are still enjoyed today. Testaccio market provides a fascinating insight into over 2,000 years of Rome’s culinary history under one roof. Join us as we meet the people of the food market, hear the stories of the family-run stalls selling their home-grown produce, and discover the new businesses injecting a modern flair into time-honored Roman recipes. We’ll be stopping along the way to taste delicious, locally-made food and wine.
