Meeting at the weekly flea market of Porta Portese we will peruse the stands and enjoy the atmosphere of a relaxed Sunday morning. Between antiquities and vintage fashion passing through everything in the middle Porta Portese has something for everyone, but it's not just that, it's about being in contact with real Romans and savouring life like them. After snapping up a few unique items we will continue our walk through to Circus Maximus, discussing as much history as you want along the way. The farmer's market of Campagna Amica will be waiting for us with its incredible variety of food from up and down the country. Here we will taste our way through a curated selection of vendors (cheese, meats, pastas, fried treats and of course wines and craft beers!) and then part ways on the Capitoline Hill with the stunning backdrop of the Roman Forum.
After travelling extensively from a young age I've settled in Rome where I have been designing and leading tours for 6 years. I combine my academic training as a historian and my professional experience in the kitchen to create experiences that will enrich my guests. I've always been a big believer in living a city like the locals do which is why I enjoy creating unusual experiences for visitors.
We will start with a typical Roman breakfast and then carry on our gastronomic exploration with whatever is in season at the…
Starting from coffee we will make our way down the list of the best Italian beverages to wine and amaro and everything in…
We will be visiting a number of well established stands in the flea market of Porta Portese where the benefit of a local's guidance will help you spot the real from fake and make sure the price is right! From there you will be led down my favourite alleyways of Trastevere to find our way into the old city and to the farmers market by the Circus Maximus where I will introduce you to my favourite stalls and vendors!
Comfortable Shoes & Clothing (we might be stepping into churches, a shawl or scarf to cover knees and shoulders is always handy)
This is an experience designed to put you in touch with the local culture without overlooking the history and the value of what surrounds us. It is in this mindset that I designed this activity, please contact me with any questions or concerns!
