“Really enjoyed this tour -- we tried a lot of different foods, and thought the supermarket stop was a quirky and fun part of it. Urban Adventures are great for the first day in a new city, to help find your feet.”

“Enjoyable tour with friendly knowledgable guide.”

After meeting your expert local guide at Piazza della Rotonda in front of the iconic Pantheon, you’ll head to a local coffee roaster that has been in business since 1938. Here you’ll enjoy an espresso just how the Romans drink it.

Next, we’ll take a walk through the labyrinth of alleyways along cobblestone streets to arrive in the Quartiere Ebraico, the Jewish Quarter. Along the way, we will pass the Portico d'Ottavia and Piazza Mattei and see the many kosher restaurants and Jewish owned businesses.  We’ll stop at one of these locations to taste one of the oldest recipes in Rome, a crispy fried artichoke that was traditionally prepared to celebrate the end of the Yom Kipper fast and the holiest day of the year in Judaism.

We will then visit the oldest Jewish bakery in the area where five generations have been baking original sweet and savoury kosher treats. Along the way, we’ll stop to learn about the Stumbling Stones, memorials to the Jews who were arrested on October 16, 1943, during the Nazi occupation of Rome.

We’ll then arrive in the picturesque and quaint district of Trastevere. Pass by some of the city's important churches including Santa Cecilia built upon ruins of an ancient Roman house. Continue walking along cobblestone streets to reach the Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere, the heart of the neighbourhood and a great place to witness everyday life in Rome.

It’s time to tantalize our taste buds at a local street food stop for some true Roman pasta – handmade and fresh where you can choose from cacio e pepe (made with Pecorino Romano and black pepper), carbonara, or arrabbiata (pasta in a spicy red sauce). This is one of the most local street food places in town where we’ll also meet the owner, Alessio, who will welcome us into the kitchen.

After filling up on pasta, we’ll head toward Piazza Trilussa, one of the most popular spots in Trastevere where you can see local street artists and buskers.

At our last foodie stop, we’ll try local suppli. Suppli is a delicious fried rice ball similar to arancini. Enjoy the pop of flavors accompanied by a glass of fresh, crisp wine from the region at internationally acclaimed Trapizzino from Roman pizza guru Stefano Callegari.

From here, you can walk back to the city centre over the Sixtus Bridge or head back into Trastevere to continue exploring this stunning Roman suburb.
