We start our walking tour at Panificio Passi, where you'll taste some of the best food this long-standing family owned bakery has to offer. Then, we take a stroll down the road to Masto for some of Italy's finest meats and cheeses – and a glass of local wine.

A super fun experience. Rome from another point of view. It is amazing to move freely through the streets and lose yourself. In addition the treatment of the store staff has been wonderful. They include some sandwiches to your liking and water as well as backpacks and magnets. Great experience that we recommend to everyone! Many thanks!! Isaac and Marta from Madrid !!
