Mangia Like the Real Romans Do!


A Unique Off-the-Beaten Path Food Tour in Testaccio

When in Rome, you can either eat… or you can mangia like the real Romans do. For a unique and delicious food tour, no one shows you produce and dishes in the heart of this working class Roman neighborhood of Testaccio quite like Kenny Dunn does. He and his expert guides take you on a four-hour food tour where you will get to eat in various authentic Roman eateries and specialty food shops – and more than just the usual sample you’re given on food tours. His company, Eating Italy Food Tours, takes you on a journey to the Testaccio food market, one of the best gourmet food shops in Rome, a 100-year-old gelateria, a decadent pastry shop and it even includes a sit-down pasta meal with wine at a typical Roman trattoria. The tour isn’t just about food though. Kenny and his foodie guides give you tidbits of historical background about the quartiere and he also introduces you to the families that have been running the Testaccio food market for generations or churning out a hearty plate of carbonara at the local trattoria for ages. You definitely won’t walk away hungry after taking this tour.
