Details

Our food tour will be centered in Rione Monti, it is a district rich in historical monuments and churches and is considered the prettiest, most characteristic and off the beaten track district of Rome. It is a hidden gem standing between Venice Square, The Forums and the Colosseum. Monti has an amazing medieval atmosphere setting through a maze of lanes and alleys with many small family run shops, restaurants and bars to explore. 

  • The first stop is at a hundred year-old bakery where,you will be introduced the PIZZA ALLA TEGLIA cooked in a special baking tin. You will also learn about the three different ways of making Italian pizzas and their relation with history in this very charming retro-style bakery.
  • The second stop is in a Deli or Gastronomia as a local would say. Here you will taste pure, artisan ingredients used as topping for the different kinds of pizza (margherita, capricciosa, etc), and also learn which topping to add while baking and what to add after. It will also be the right time to taste the 1932 first typical Italian soft drink called CHINOTTO.
  • After the Deli stop on your Rome Pizza Tour, we visit the heart of the Monti District for a historical sight stop where our guide will share information and anecdotes about this area of Rome, that is also famous for housing her majesty the Flavian Amphitheatre, aka the Colosseum.
  • The next stop presents sliced PIZZA ALLA PALA, cooked this time not in a tin but on oven flint rock.
  • Now it’s time to indulge your sweet tooth with an ITALIAN GELATO TASTING! With your guide you will taste the best gelato shop in Rione Monti who make their own creations by hand with seasonal ingredients.
  • The next historical stop leads us to the most famous and largest Marian Basilica of Italy, the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore. Completed in year 440 ad., according to the Mussolinian 1929 Lateran Treaty, the Basilica,located in Italian territory, is owned by the Holy See and enjoys extraterritorial status similar to that of foreign embassies. It is here that our POPE FRANCESCO has celebrated his first mass as a Pope.Here you will also discover the tomb of one of the most important Italian Artists, Gianlorenzo Berniniand of Paoline Bonaparte, the sister of Napoleon.
  • The final stop on the Rome Pizza Tour will let you sit and stretch your legs in a WOOD OVEN PIZZERIA, where you will have the chance to relax and enjoy the art of making round pizza by watching the PIZZAIOLO, the pizza man.
