Rome: Food Market Tour with Pizza Making Class

1. Rome: Food Market Tour with Pizza Making Class

After gathering at your meeting point at the restaurant, you will depart for a brief market tour. Take a walk in the most beautiful and ancient market in the heart of Rome, Campo de Fiori. You can sample the products of local producers, and can also enjoy meeting new people. Campo de Fiori is probably the oldest and most traditional market in Rome, where the so-called "vignarole", ladies who came from the countryside every day, sell their vegetables. Throughout your market tour you, will be able to sample catious cold cuts accompanied by a glass of wine. You will also be presented with fruit and vegetable banquets, before sampling some Amari (bitters) and liqueurs. You will taste two types of balsamic vinegar, two types of extra-virgin olive oil, two pate, and of course, limoncello. Once the tour of the market is over, you can create your own pizza back at the restaurant, with your dough already pre-risen. You can prepare your own unique pizza for lunch, as you choose your own toppings and bake your very own signature pizza.

Lonely Planet Experiences: Rome Small-Group Highlights Tour

2. Lonely Planet Experiences: Rome Small-Group Highlights Tour

Experience the best travel stories for yourself! Join a local expert and uncover hidden gems on this Lonely Planet Experience. Your dolce vita adventure begins where the famous film was written by Italy’s greatest film director, Federico Fellini. Enjoy a stroll down the Via Margutta, a street famous for inspiring painters, sculptors, artisans, poets and musicians and learn about the artists that have lived here through the centuries. Ready for an injection of movie glamour yet? Pass by the home of Fellini where he lived with his actress wife Giulietta Masina and as you do you guide will talk a little of about his life and career. Staying with the Hollywood theme, then check out the house that stood in as Gregory Peck’s home in the iconic Audrey Hepburn movie Roman Holiday. Fun fact: this is the first Hollywood film to be entirely filmed on location in Rome. Nearby, stumble across the apartment where Pablo Picasso lived, over 100 years ago. An espresso stop at a local cafe that was once the private art studio of Antonio Canova , a well-known and respected sculpture artist of the 19th century, is up next. Admire the elaborate marble sculpture as you enjoy a true Roman Espresso (your guide will teach you how to order it, the Roman way) and listen to your guide talk about Italian coffee culture and the many local roasters that have sprung up around the city center. Your next stop is the Monumental Staircase. A total of 135 steps lead to the Trinita del Monti church that overlooks the Spanish Steps and the Barcaccia Fountain by Bernini. As you wind your way through the atmospheric Roman streets, heading towards the Trevi fountain, stumble across one of the tour operator's favourite wine bars, where you will stop to taste local wine from the foothills of Rome, accompanied by local salumi, cheese (including Pecorino Romano) and delicious focaccia bread. It couldn’t be a ‘dolce vita’ themed tour without a visit to the world-famous Trevi Fountain, which has become the stuff of legend since Anita Ekberg’s midnight frolic caused an international sensation in the 1960 movie that’s given our tour its title. Next up, pass through a shopping gallery dedicated to Roman legend and comedy actor, Alberto Sordi only to arrive at the Pantheon, one of the world’s greatest and best preserved Roman temples. In the 7th century AD it was transformed into a church and remains one of the most astonishing sights in Rome; guarenteed take your breath away. Don’t forget to admire the beautiful fountain outside too, crafted by Giacomo della Porta. Your taste of the Roman good life will end at the Piazza Navona, site of the spectacular Four Rivers fountain by Bernini. Before you go, don’t forget to ask your expert local guide for more tips on what else to see, do and eat during your stay in ravishing Rome.

A great experience! Our guide Rita was very friendly and very enthusiastic! She made us taste some culinary specialties. Be careful not to have too much breakfast before going: indeed everything goes from limoncello to vinegar, including cheese and cold meats. In short, she makes us discover a typical market and more than a century old shops. I highly recommend!

Absolutely fabulous! So much food! Great, interesting information shared during the tour. Experience was above and beyond expectations!

Very good activity. Really friendly guide. Good tastings at the market and a great experience learning to make your own pizza!
