Trastevere Sunset Aperitivo in Rome

Sun-filled street in Trastevere
Discover Rome’s trendy Trastevere neighborhood with a guided walking tour focused on food and wine. You’ll visit four venues beloved by locals, tasting over 16 delicious appetizers, main dishes, and sweets. As you walk from place to place, you’ll admire the neighborhood’s interesting architecture, cobblestone streets, and ivy-coated buildings. Tastings include 30-year-aged balsamic vinegar, truffles, cheese, hams, DOCG wine, pizza, homemade pasta, gelato, and more!

Your tour begins at Trapizzino, where you’ll taste Italy’s newest street food innovation, kind of like a calzone cut in half. Choose your favorite Trapizzino, such as traditional pizza toppings and Roman classics. Or, you can try more gourmet and unusual ingredients, such as parmigiana di melanzane (eggplant parmesan), Roman oxtail stew, artichokes, meatballs, and tripe. Pair your dish with a glass of local wine.

Next, enjoy the best cheeses and hams Italy has to offer at an award-winning salumeria. You’ll taste sweet Gorgonzola, Pecorino Romano, Parmigiano-Reggiano (drizzled with a 30-year-aged balsamic vinegar), and truffles. Participate in the great debate and decide which ham you prefer between Parma, San Daniele, and salami. To complement the food, enjoy a glass of DOCG Chianti wine.

No food tour of Rome is complete without homemade fresh pasta, fine wine, and pizza! You’ll sit down at a cozy restaurant popular with the locals, as it’s home to the oldest wood-fired oven. End your tour with a sweet treat and head to the Fonte della Salute artisanal gelateria. Become an expert in gelato by learning how to spot the real deal from imposters. Favorite flavors include lemon from the Amalfi Coast and pistachio from Sicily.
