Enjoy this private experience, smells, tastes and good company will remain forever in your memory and on your palate ... a real privilege!
Enjoy the italian gastronomy, one of the most prestigious in the world, tasting the best products of all Rome, in this fantastic Private Tour. Walk through the Vatican City district, famous for the incredible St. Peter's Basilica, but also for its pleasant local atmosphere.
The experience offered by this tour is a real luxury: your host is a real Roman chef and gourmet, born and raised in the Vatican, who knows every corner of the area and owns a small restaurant. He will take you to discover the Mercato Trionfale, located in the heart of the Vatican district.
Visit this incredible market, where a large number of cooks, chefs and citizens buy fresh products daily. With nearly 300 stalls, the Mercato Trionfale has seemingly endless rows of vendors selling fresh vegetables, fruit, spices, cheese, seafood, meat, wine and more. See where the real romans go to stock their kitchens and learn the secret of great Italian cuisine: high-quality local ingredients. This is the focal point of roman gastronomy.
Make a complete gastronomic route inside the market, through the most outstanding stands. Try the delicious bruschettas, made with local roman products of great quality. Tempt yourself with a selection of different slices of the most traditional roman pizza, made on the spot by the market's expert chefs. Discover also the exquisite taste of ‘suppli’, these delicious rice croquettes filled with peas and minced meat, a classic of roman street food. A taste of Porchetta and Bufala mozzarella is a must in Rome! The owners are from Battipaglia, where the fresh mozzarella comes out every morning, and Porchetta from Ariccia, the house of pork. Different goat cheeses, homemade bread, olive oil, truffle delicacies, all made with natural products are part of the menu. Always pairing the flavors, with exquisite roman wine.
The best part of the tour is the unmissable private cooking class given by your chef, in his cozy restaurant, very close to the market. Cook the traditional 'Pasta Carbonara' in the kitchen of your private chef/guide with fresh products bought at the market. The best fresh pasta, guanciale (similar to bacon) and pecorino cheese (typical Roman goat cheese) are the main ingredients.
To crown the fantastic day, try one of the most prestigious gelatos in all of Rome, while your private guide, an expert in roman gastronomy, but also in the history of the neighborhood, will explain everything about the history of the Vatican, the Popes and their incredible religious buildings - an unmissable experience!
This tour is adaptable to your needs (vegetarian, vegan, celiac options), 100% customizable.
