Two very close but very different quarters: Monti has combined the memories of the Suburra (a large and densely-populated district of ancient Rome) with fashionable places and craft workshops. Esquilino is the multiethnic heart of the city. Join us in discovering their essence through their streets, views of monuments and food!

What you will taste

- Creamy cappuccino and fragrant cornetto
- Traditional Roman ”Maritozzo” (sweet and tender yeasted dough) right out of the oven, stuffed with whipped cream
- Gourmet panino (sandwich)
- Pizza by the slice
- Tasting of salami/ham, cheese and other local products along with a glass of wine

Itineraries and quality stops are “Tavole Romane-guaranteed”, shaped on the expertise of passionate Roman bloggers who constantly keep themselves abreast of the fast evolution of food and wine offering in Rome!

Please note that gastronomic stops and tastings may be subject to change over time in order to guarantee the expected quality of the overall experience and/or to include new openings in the area.


Your guide

An officially certified Rome Tour Guide who shares our passion for the city and its unique cuisine. She/he is also a foodie who will reveal anecdotes and secrets around the recipes and uses of what you’ll be eating. Furthermore, our guide will provide you with plenty of information that you will find very helpful to experience Rome and its food in a non- touristic way, over the time of your stay.


What you will explore

The Esquilino Quarter, one of the 7 hills upon which Rome was founded, which used to be the area of “piedmont people” who came to Rome following the king moving to Rome, now multiethnic center of the city. We will take you up to Piazza Vittorio to admire ancient remains, the Magical Door and the “Fried Mixed”.
Santa Prassede Church, so hidden a gem that even many locals wonder at the beauty of its byzantine mosaics when they discover it.
An unusual and breathtaking external view of the Colosseum as we move to the Church of Saint Peter in Chains where you will be able to admire the impressive Moses statue by Michelangelo.
The pittoresque stone paved streets of Rione Monti, once upon a time being the ancient Rome outskirts, and today a district filled with craft shops, art galleries and small eateries and bars where the locals meet.

The enchanting Madonna de’ Monti Square, the remains of the Roman Argiletum street and the ancient Tower of the Marchese del Grillo.

The itinerary is suitable for both adults and children.

Let’s meet at the meeting point on the selected day!
Upon registration, you will receive a Voucher by e-mail, indicating the nearby location where the Tour will end.
