I didn't know I loved food tours until I took my first Devour tour in Venice. Now, I can't get enough. The Rome Street Food Tour was, of course, so delicious! Now I know what I want to eat, where to get it, and how to order. The other part that was just as important was learning about the connection between what we were eating and the culture. And how the history of Rome factors in to popular foods today.

The tour was fantastic! A LOT of food and drinks with the tour and Sylvia was our guide and she was fabulous. We had a great time, learned about the street food of Rome, visited a bar/brewery for local beer, made our own pizzas and just had a had a great time!

This was so much fun! Not only were the food stops great but the pizza making was a blast! Worth the price of admission. And a tour is nothing without a good tour guide - Andrea was amazing!
