Why join a Streaty tour in Rome?
Rome is without any doubt one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. As you know, mass tourism brings changes to the city life, and so it happened to Rome, where the large majority of restaurants nowadays promote fixed menus for tourists. The quality and the variety of food has been largely standardized in all of the city center.
This is the reason why you should join a Rome food tour with Streaty. Rely on us when it comes to good and authentic food in Italy. Our company is purely Italian, and only the local guides decide what and where we should take our guests to enjoy the local cuisine.
So why Testaccio district? Our Roman guides have indicated Testaccio as the last of the authentic districts of Rome, where the market vendors are not working to make tourists happy, instead they work to supply locals and they do this since ever, being most of the vendors running a family business for generations. Here at Streaty we all like traveling, and we all agreed that the Testaccio district is the perfect stage where to experience street food tour of Rome, since it gives the fizzy vibes of experiencing Romans’ daily life. At Testaccio, locals don’t have to behave, they are just themselves.
What will I taste during the Rome food tour?
The Roman cuisine is well known in Italy for being simple but also very tasty and extremely mouth-watering in all of its shape, texture and tastes. Our Food tour guide have drawn for you a well balance list of must-try recipes from Rome and Lazio region. You will start off with a delicious soft maritozzo, then dive into the Rome street food and finally embrace the tempting pasta alla gricia!
We are very strict when it comes to selecting the dishes. On Streaty tours we only serve specialties from the city or the region. So you will never find a Spritz in our Rome tour, being a spritz a classic Venetian drink. You will never find a Suppì in our Florence tour, because the crunchy supplì is strictly a Roman specialty.
