    What to Expect on Your Tour

    TOUR SNAPSHOT:
    Spend an evening exploring Rome’s picturesque Trastevere neighborhood. We’ll hop from enoteca to local bar, from ristorante to trattoria, as we dive into the world of Roman gastronomy and Italian wines. Get ready for regional cured meats and cheese, delicious local pastas, a variety of different Italian wines and, of course, our favorite aperitivo cocktail. Consider this your crash course in all things Italian wine and dining, setting you up to eat and drink better for the rest of your stay!

    STOP BY STOP:
    We’ll start things off by saying “cin cin!” with a glass of prosecco in hand. We’ll pair it with a variety of local meats and cheeses at this wine bar known for its extensive wine list and warm, laid-back atmosphere.

    At our next stop you’ll take part in a quintessential Italian tradition. No evening in Trastevere would be complete without Italy’s favorite aperitivo cocktail. What better place to enjoy one than this bar where locals meet and socialize with friends, surrounded by decor that hasn’t changed in 50 years?

    Next up we’ll weave our way through the charming backstreets of the neighborhood to visit a fantastic local restaurant with a modern twist. Here we’ll sample a spread of local delicacies. Think tomato and burrata bruschetta and fried salt cod paired with two different regional varieties of white wine.

    Not done yet, it’s time to hit up one of the area’s most renowned traditional trattorias for a pasta experience true to the city. Enjoy classic Roman pasta paired with hearty Italian red wine at this spot that dates back to the 19th century.

    And what would dinner in Rome be without dessert? We’re off to an artisanal gelateria famous for its local, seasonal flavors. You’re going to love the gelato here, and we’ll show you what you need to look out for to separate the real-deal gelatarias from the tourist traps.

    And as with all Devour Rome tours, your guide will give you a copy of our Devouring Rome guide, which is packed with all our favorite places to eat and drink in the city! So put down your guidebook and get ready to experience Rome like a local on our evening food and wine tasting experience!

    Great question! A Devour Rome food tour is a fun, fascinating and (most importantly!) delicious introduction to the city of Rome. Our food tours visit some of the city’s best traditional establishments including trattorias, delicatessens, wine bars and hidden gems that few even know exist! You’ll taste some of Rome's best local food and gain fascinating insight into the Trastevere neighborhood. We keep our groups small, and every tour is led by an English-speaking guide who knows Rome like the back of their hand.
    The tour lasts approximately 3 hours (give or take 15 minutes). The tour covers approximately 1.8 kilometers (1.1 miles) and there is seating at three stops.
    Don’t worry, you won’t be part of a massive crowd following a guide with a flag!
