Take a trip across the Tiber river to the medieval quarter of Trastevere for a food and wine adventure tailored to your tastes. Join A&K’s expert guide as you explore the bustling market places and family-run trattorias and pizzerias, considered by the locals to be the best in Rome.
Discover this lesser-known side of the Eternal City, with its ancient maze of streets. Your guide will lead you to the market where you can browse the stalls selling fresh fruit and vegetables. Sample some of the mouth-watering traditional delicacies on offer from baccalà fritto (fried salted cod) and to an Amalfi-lemon flavoured gelato. Enjoy a visit to the city’s best-loved food stores to chat with some of the families who have worked hard to preserve Roman food traditions for generations. Learn more about the various Italian cheeses and cured hams and fine wine.
During your tour of Trastevere, you can choose to visit Piazza di Santa Maria, the heart of this labyrinthine district, lined with shops and pizzerias. This vibrant neighbourhood square, which beats to the sound of buskers, is dominated by 12th-century Basilica di Santa Maria. At the end of the tour, relax on a pavement café with a cappuccino and watch the world go by, before being transferred back over the river to your hotel.
