We will start our amazing tour from the largest square in Rome, Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II, also known as Piazza Vittorio. The beating heart of multi-ethnic Rome. Nowadays, the market has been moved into the old milk plant without losing affordable prices and its folklore, but it has been enriched with ethnic products. Our tour will stop inside the market to discover local products, listening to the screams of vendors and the aromas of their products. 
Here in Suburra, we will spend most of our time, walking across alleys, artisan shops, gourmet restaurants; glimpses of an old district that has not lost its popular identity, allowing us to grasp secrets and curiosities about Italian cuisine and local gastronomic products, off the beaten paths... We start our journey in Piazza Vittorio with a cappuccino and a "cornetto" (croissant), then a typical dessert of the Roman tradition. We will arrive in the Monti district tasting a traditional Italian recipe in a street food format combined with a soft drink. Finally a sandwich ("panino") with typical Roman bread and a fruit. Then we will stop in a cosy bistro to taste a plate of local hams and cheeses, accompanied by a glass of wine and we will finish with a fantastic Italian gelato (don't call it ice cream !) and coffee.


Duration: about 4 hours. The tour starts at Piazza Vittorio underground station. The tour ends at the Colosseo underground station. The tasting is included in the price. The tour is in Italian, but we have a pool of interpreters that if required will accompany you during the event.
