Do Trastevere like a local, complete with all the tastiest spots.

Italy is just as famous for its cuisine as it is for landmarks like the Colosseum and the Trevi Fountain. If you want to taste the best the country has to offer but you’re not quite sure where to start, you can’t beat a tour with a local who knows all the best spots. Our food walking tour takes place in Trastevere, Rome’s most bohemian district and home to some of its tastiest delicacies. You’ll get three hours to sample some of Italy’s best bites, so there’s no need to rush.

We’ll meet up at the Largo di Torre Argentina square and follow the tantalizing aroma of freshly-baked goods to your first stopping point, where you’ll enjoy a traditional Italian breakfast. You’ll learn that choosing and drinking coffee is a serious business in Italy, and you’ll also get to sample the best cream cornetti (croissants) in town.

Then, it’s straight to our next stop: The farm products market. Amid the colorful local delicacies and bustling activity, you’ll try a selection of quality cheese and meats, truffle and olive oils, spices, and vinegar. Basically, you’ll be living the dream.

After wandering through some of Rome’s most picturesque and tranquil streets, you’ll move on to the ultimate icon of Italian food: Pizza. Your guide will take you straight to the finest pizzeria in Rome to enjoy some pizza al taglio, all while learning about the fascinating history of pizza and how it’s made.

Finally — chin-chin — it’s time to raise your glass and let your feet up as you try three classic pasta dishes of various shapes, sizes, and sauces from a local chef.

You’ll end the day with gelato, the Italian ice cream also known as an edible work of art. This is found at none other than an original Roman gelateria, where each ice cream variety is still made without any artificial flavors or additives. Trust us — you can taste the difference.

      We had a great time in this experience. While the start was a little late, we enjoyed meeting other travelers. I couldn’t believe how good the pasta was that we made ourselves. Definitely an eye opening experience!

      This was an amazing, authentic and informative experience! The food tasted great and let us explore Roman culture and cuisine. We look forward to bringing our new skills home to cook for friends and family!

      We had a great Pasta and Tiramisu making/cooking experience! It was excellent and we cannot wait to try to make both when we get home! The whole evening was fantastic! The chef was very thorough in explaining the processes and where pitfalls can happen during making the recipes. He was very patient with our attempts! I would recommend the Pasta and Tiramisu class to anyone looking to do something a little more hands on in Rome!

      Was a fun way to learn how to make pasta and tiramisu from scratch. The tiramisu we made was the best we had on our trip to Italy!

      This was such a fun experience. We got to learn not only how to make the different dishes, but fact and knowledge about past and Italy you wouldn't normally learn from visiting. Igor was very knowledgeable and very passionate about cooking. They actually contacted us a few days before our class and offered for us to move classes because the first class we booked was full and they said it would be a better experience if we moved. We were able to change and ended up having a private class. It was very intimate. Igor was able to modify the menus based on our dietary needs and preferences which was amazing! Ive taken other Airbnb cooking classes where you are with a group of people and it seems very cookie cutter. Those classes were amazing and worked for us at the time but this was in a small, intimate restaurant and it just made the experience that much better. I can not recommend this experience enough!

      What a great family experience. Igor was kind and made all ages feel welcome and comfortable. It was super hands on and we learned both about what we made as well as about things having to do w Italian culture and ingredients. A memorable experience!
