Our guide was amazing, very personable and spent time getting to know the group so if you’re flying solo you’re in great hands. She also has the most amazing relationships with each venue we went to and everyone went out of their way to be so wonderful to us. They are small local businesses who all have sustainable practices which was important to me.
The pace of the tour was very leisurely and I would highly recommend this tour to those seeking a true Roman experience that is very comfortable and worth every dollar/euro. Abbie is much more than an amazing tour guide, she is like your personal Roman Food and Culture Coach and you can not go wrong with a Devour Rome Tour with Abbie!
I am from Rome, so I usually do not go on tours and such around my own city, but I decided to accompany a British friend and I could not have organized something better myself. If you are wondering if this will be a genuine Roman experience, listen to a Roman. DO IT!
What to Expect
**IMPORTANT: NEW VACCINATION RULES**
The Italian government has recently announced new regulations to better control the spread of the virus. All people ages 12+ are now required to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination, a recent negative test (obtained within the previous 48 hours), or proof of full recovery from COVID-19 to enter public indoor venues in Italy.
As you can see, this new regulation will affect your ability to enter the bars, cafes, and restaurants we visit on our Rome tour, as well as any other leisure spaces you plan to visit during your time in Italy.
In order to comply with these new legal regulations, your guide will be checking for this information at the start of the tour. If you are unable to provide either of these, we will be unable to run the tour.
You can read more about the requirements on the digital certificate website here.
Please let us know if you have any additional questions. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to welcoming you on tour.
Spend an evening exploring Rome’s picturesque Trastevere neighborhood. We’ll hop from enoteca to local bar, from osteria to gelateria, 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 learn that the Italian drinking scene is not just about wine. Here, you’ll have the chance to make your own negroni! After a quick course in Italian mixology, you’ll learn the secret behind making this famous aperitivo cocktail for yourself.
Next up we’ll weave our way through the charming backstreets of the neighborhood to visit a fantastic enoteca with a modern twist. Here we’ll sample a spread of local delicacies. Think tomato, pesto and mozzarella bruschetta and a traditional balsamic vinegar salad 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 osterias for a dining experience true to the city. Enjoy classic Roman pasta and meatballs prepared by an award-winning chef. And if you thought it couldn’t get better—we’ll be sipping two types of hearty Italian red wine selected by an expert sommelier.
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!
