TWILIGHT TESTACCIO: TASTY TRENDS

Roman cuisine (cucina romana) was born in Testaccio. So where better to eat your way through all that Rome has to offer than the city’s original foodie neighbourhood? Testaccio is not only home to the famous quinto quarto (offal) that Rome is renowned for; it’s also the place where you’ll get away from the tourist crowds and get a glimpse of daily life. Meanwhile, you’ll discover a hidden gem of a restaurant that’s set right into Monte Testaccio itself and find out what coda and trapizzino are (and, more importantly, what they taste like)!

Our movable feast through Testaccio is perfect for the adventurous foodie who’s looking to try something that pushes the boundaries beyond pizza and pasta. Our local guides will regale you with personal stories, fascinating history, and a unique glimpse into local Roman life. Plus, as this is an evening food tour, you can expect plenty of wine and spirits along the way! Why sit down to dinner when you can eat, learn and meet the locals all in one adventuresome evening?

TRIP HIGHLIGHTS

• Live like a true local by trying real Roman street food.
• Enjoy a typical Italian aperitivo to kick off your evening.
• Get adventurous with Rome’s famous quinto quarto – offal! We promise you’ll love the coda (oxtail) if you try it.
• Dine in one of the neighbourhood’s best-kept secrets: a restaurant set into Monte Testaccio itself!
• Find out what all the fuss is about with the Romans’ favourite stuffed pizza-dough snack.
• Push your palate with cheeses and cured meats you’ve probably never heard of.
Taste authentic gelato (and learn how to tell it apart from the fake stuff!)

Plus: See Rome’s famous slaughterhouse, and the neighbourhood’s very own “mountain”.

Please note that this tour is in the same neighbourhood as the Taste of Testaccio food tour and has some similarities; therefore if you’re looking to also do a day tour we recommend participating in the Trastevere Stree Eats tour.

Also, our trapizzino stop is closed on Mondays so we visit an alternative stop.

Tour stops, tastings and numbers of tastings are likely to change slightly to reflect seasonal produce, vendor opening hours and availability.
