Fun Food Tour in Rome

On the day we arrived in Rome, we participated in an evening food tour: Twilight Trastevere Rome Food Tour (check it out on the "eatingeurope" website. It was the best way to stay up to a decent bed time after our night flight from the U.S. It was both fun and delicious and it provided us with enough food to qualify as dinner. Our tour guide, Walter, led us to several restaurants, food stalls, a butcher shop, a bakery, and of course, we finished off the evening with gelato!

Yes, they emailed / texted us the meeting place. We found the tour guide without a problem.

I took and enjoyed that tour a few years ago. I think there have been quite a few positive reviews here on the forum.

Thanks for the review. You made up my mind. I’ve taken Eating Europe tours in Rome, London and Paris. Always great. I definitely recommend them. The Rome Twilight tour is now on my to-do list for next year’s trip. As is the Florence Twilight tour.

We took this tour in October 2022. It was great but come hungry! Lots of foods to “sample- almost full portions” very easy to meet up. Trastevere was lovely at night. We did tour our first evening in Rome & it was definitely a highlight of the trip.

What time slot do you recommend for the tour. Thinking of taking this tour in June...

It looks like this tour has lots of time choices! I don't recall that many when I took it.
I would choose the time that fits best with your other plans for the day, and when you'll be hungry.

We switched to the earlier tour from the twilight tour, we were just too jetlagged even after two days in Rome. There were about 15 people and two guides so they split us up into two groups. Lots of tasty food and a very informative guide, so we were quite pleased with our tour.

Hey, I'm travelling to Rome in May from India and would love to try this food tour. However, my husband is a vegetarian (not vegan). Would you still recommend we take this tour or does it involve a lot of non-vegetarian foods that we might not be able to enjoy?

There is generally an option for vegetarian when signing up for food tours, but I haven't paid attention to what has been substituted.

I might start a new thread asking vegetarians about food tours to get more eyes on your question.

There were plenty of vegetarian options when we did the Food Tour in April, and a few vegetarians in the group. There is a stop in a butcher shop, but I seem to recall them offering cheese instead.

Love the Eating Europe tours in Rome! The Get your Guide tours also offer food tour options.

My husband was at a conference in Rome all day for 4 days, so I would go on a different neighborhood walking food tour every day - that covered my lunch and introduced me to different parts of the city. It was fabulous and fun!
