  • Walk past the MACRO modern art museum, formerly the Testaccio abattoir that supplied the offal for classic dishes. 
  • Meet the vendors who have worked the market for generations and enjoy a sit-down pasta dish in a local trattoria. 

Enjoy a delicious walking and eating tour of Testaccio – one of Rome’s coolest neighbourhoods, really popular with locals, and least visited by tourists. Testaccio has a vibrant community and is really proud of its history and reputation as the birthplace of typical Roman food – Cucina Romana. Walk around the historic market, chat to the friendly vendors – who have worked here for several generations – and sample their offerings. 

Testaccio is a unique area built onto an enormous mound of discarded amphorae – ancient clay jars. You’ll see some amazing street art, as well as the more historic monuments like the Pyramid of Cestio, which marks the Protestant cemetery where the English poet John Keats is buried. 

Your guide will introduce you to classic Roman street food like Fritti (fried foods – like cod and Fiori de Zucca, battered balls of mozzarella, zucchini and anchovy), and Suppli, breaded rice balls cooked in a tomato ragu with a yummy, gooey centre of melted mozzarella. 

Get stuck into some mouthwatering pasta dishes at a local trattoria, and enjoy a convivial meal with fellow travellers on this small-group tour, in Testaccio while it is still a really well-kept secret!
