ROMAN STREET FOOD
Ironically enough, street food in Rome is something old too. Even though world-wide this is a phenomenon that has really boomed in the last few years, Rome has had friggitorie and pizza al taglio since the early 60s. We had to include a few typical stops of Roman street food. On our Rome Food Tour your guide will stop at once of the most delicious pizza-by-the slice spots in Rome and you’ll take it to Largo Argentina, and while looking at the beautiful lit Roman excavations and hearing about Julius Caesar, you will be tasting this prominent Roman delish.
Street food in Rome also includes supplì. A typical rice-ball with tomato sauce and juicy stringy mozzarella all to eat while walking through the beauty of Rome.
“This was a truly fulfilling food tour by all means. We went to places we would never have found on our own and tried things we never would have dared to try and everything was fantastic!” – Anna L. Stockholm, Sweden
