The Italian capital is known for being one of the most fascinating places in the world. History, culture, arts and archaeology meet and mix in this city capable of making you dream away. Each and every corner has its own treasure to discover. Every street hides some poetry.
Even weeks and weeks of holiday would not be enough to see everything in Rome, but even if your time is limited, you will see plenty of miracles: the eternal city never disappoints its visitors.
One of the best ways to enjoy your stay in Rome is to join in a walking Food Tour through the capital: in this way you can discover the city through its tradition.
In this article we will give you 5 good reasons to participate in a food tour in Rome, the Italian capital.
1. Discover the gastronomic tradition of Rome
The Roman Cuisine tells us years of history and tradition. This unique city reveals itself through its gastronomy and therefore if you are planning to visit Rome you can’t be satisfied with just having lunch in one of the many fast food restaurants that the capital offers. A decent and traditional lunch or dinner in a local restaurant is a moral duty!
The typical food tradition of Rome is characterised by simple dishes based on popular ingredients, but this does not mean that these are poor or not very tasty dishes. The opposite is the case: the most typical dishes of Rome are a real triumph of flavours.
From the pasta alla Carbonara, to porchetta and supplì, there are tons of dishes to try in the city. For this reason, participating in a food tour in Rome is a great choice: you will have the opportunity to taste at least 4 dishes in different restaurants along the way without having to exclude any of the best places!
2. Try the Roman Pizza
Roman or Neapolitan Pizza? Do you know the difference?
While the first one is thin and crispy, the latter is high and soft. This ongoing discussion is a matter of taste but if you visit Rome, you surely need to try its pizza.
The toppings are various and varied, but the most famous one in Rome is the one with tomato, mozzarella, anchovies, basil, pecorino and pepper.
We are sure that after the first bite, you will want another slice!
3. You will dive into the most typical districts of Rome
