Rome Off-the-Beaten Path 3.5-hour Walking Tour

9. Rome Off-the-Beaten Path 3.5-hour Walking Tour

Your 3.5-hour tour begins in Rome’s Jewish Ghetto, one of the most important, but greatly ignored neighborhoods in the city.

LOVED this activity on our first night in Roma. We wanted to sample many of Rome's best foods and not be limited to one unknown restaurant. Our guide led us to multiple locations and provided great information about the region, history, and the food. The food and drinks were fantastic!

Claudio war ein super Guide! Er hat uns so viel von der Umgebung erzählt und Orte gezeigt, die wir sonst nie gesehen hätten. Das Essen war typisch römisch und sehr lecker - auch für Vegetarier geeignet! Wir würden es jedem empfehlen!

Very great experience! My husband I got a good history lesson on Rome along with 5 different places of bites of food with drinks. My guide even accommodated my gluten allergy. Highly recommend!

An absolutely must for everyone that likes food and history. Loved that we walked around and our guide had so much knowledge about the history and food. So fun.

Excellent food and drink. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly. Thank you!
