How to Eat Your Way Through Rome

Rome is a bucket-list worthy destination for any traveling foodie. And while every visitor to the Italian capital should dine al fresco at a trattorie, the food experiences in Rome go far beyond the restaurant table. Here are your options.

Food-Centric Walking Tours
One of the best ways to experience the breadth of Rome's food culture is to sample the city’s best offerings on a food tour. Each neighborhood has its own signature flavors, from the pizza bianca and fresh mozzarella of Trastevere to the suppli and fried artichokes of the Jewish Ghetto. These tours are an excellent way to get off the tourist path and eat like a local. Those pressed for time can take a walking or biking tour that hits both the cultural and culinary highlights.

Italian Cooking Classes
Sign up for an Italian cooking class and you'll bring home the ultimate souvenir—the ability to recreate the flavors of Rome at home. Learn the secrets of making handmade Italian pasta in the home of a local chef or master pizza-making in a Roman restaurant kitchen. Cooking classes can be combined with a city tour, and there are even classes geared toward kids. Sweet tooth? Try your hand at making tiramisu or fresh gelato.

Dinner Experiences
Rome's landmarks set the perfect stage for a dinner to remember. Enjoy a rooftop meal overlooking ancient ruins; dine in a private cellar near the Pantheon; or feast in the Pinecone Courtyard of the Vatican Museums. Other interesting options include dinner served in the garden of a 17th-century villa; an organic Italian-style picnic in the Borghese or Villa Pamphili gardens; and a historian-led dining experience that takes you back 2,000 years to sample the foods Julius Caesar once ate.
