Fun tour made even better by our incredible guide Silvia! She was so passionate and knowledgeable about the locations she took us to, her excitement was contagious. The tour was a wonderful combination of tasting food while at the same learning the history behind it. I would absolutely book this tour again or recommend it to anyone interested in Roman food!
