Experience Rome like a local, in an authentic neighborhood where people live, eat and shop. Together we will explore the local markets, meet the vendors who have been there for generations, and taste the most delicious pasta. We start our walking tour at Panificio Passi, where you'll taste some of the best food this long-standing family owned bakery has to offer. Then, we take a stroll down the road to Masto for some of Italy's finest meats and cheeses – and a glass of local wine. We'll follow this with a walk through the famous Mercato Testaccio, sampling some of the best bruschetta and buffalo mozzerella. Ready for pasta? We'll taste 3 Roman classic pastas at Flavio al Velavevodetto. What Italian food tour isn't complete without authentic gelato – We skip the stuff you see along the tourist paths and head to one of our favourites, which has been serving gelato since 1914.

In the morning the tour begins at Piazza della Repubblica. Your local guide will take you on a pleasant stroll through the historical center, where you can admire the Trevi Fountain, Bernini’s Palazzo di Montecitorio, Piazza Navona, and other sites. The bus stops adjacent to Vatican City so that you can admire St. Peter's Square while listening to your guide’s commentary on the Basilica.

The tours were mostly walking which didn't justify the price. For the classical tour all through the tour the guide appeared time poor. For example we had "7 minutes" to experience Fontana di Trevi. Highlighting how important time was to the tour it was threatened that we'd be left behind if we weren't at the meeting point after the 7 minutes. With the justification that we had a packed agenda the timetable felt reasonable but this turned out not to be the case. It was a hectic pace up until we reached the final location, the Vatican. The Vatican is one of the most artefact dense areas on the tour. It is a location where having a tour guide would be most valuable. Except after sticking to our strict timetable and loosing 25% of the group along the way we were left to our own devices for an hour (1/3 of the tour) with no guide. It didn't make any sense why we were so rushed through the first 2/3rds of the tour only to guide ourselves for the final 1/3 rd.
We had a wonderful trip around Rome and got to see a lot. However, there were big differences between the 2 guides we had and the headset you get handed out works poorly, so it requires that the guide can find out and speak clear English. The breakfast that is included in the price is not money be, choose to find a place yourself.
We were picked up from the hotel as promised (great service). In the morning as well as afternoon we had excellent guides that deserve praise! Coliseum and petersdome without having to wait. Lunch in a typical Italian restaurant. Highly recommendable and big praise to the guides.
With our guide Patrick Westmeier we got to know Rome from the best side. His great knowledge of the interesting city has inspired us. We would book it again immediately. Thanks Patrick
if you wanna fo this tour do it without the lunch.
