MONTI Food & Secrets w/an Archaeologist
Among the most picturesque districts of Rome, there undoubtedly is the Rione Monti, that - more than any others - has maintained that authentic atmosphere described in the film "La dolce vita" by Federico Fellini. You'll find yourself walking around the narrow lanes characterised by the ever-present cobblestones, surrounded by elegant buildings and shops with old and worn signs.
If you are searching for a unique experience that combines Food, History and Secret Places in the oldest District of Rome, this is the experience for you.
Rione Monti is a quiet treasure, very close to the Colosseum and Forum, but complitly off the beaten paths.
In 90 minutes you will taste some of the most famous products of our culture, in hidden places where only Romans go, and where we are sure you'll go back many times during your stay.
Being all archeologists, for the first part of the experience we will take a "time machine" together, showing you around amazing little details around the area, secret passages and hidden ruins that talk about the daily life of 2000 years of history.
We are even a big foodies and In the second part of the experience, we will taste the best of Rome starting with a an amazing espresso in one of the last “Torrefazione” (coffee roastery) of the city.
We will then jump in the smallest local market of the city center, having a Rustico (Typical Italian savory pie)just out of the oven.
Out off the beaten paths, we will taste some amazing cheeses and salami from a tiny grocery of the area.
Our day will continue with a deep fried Suppli and a round crunchy Pizza: two of Rome's best street food products.
We will finish with a "Maritozzo" a sweet roman tradition, really hard to find in other places =)
