What To Expect
Explore the district of Rione Monti, which is considered the most beautiful and off the beaten track in Rome with its historical monuments and churches. A hidden gem located in between Venice Square, The Forums and the Colosseum, Monti has a unique medieval atmosphere with its alleys filled with family-owned shops, restaurants and bars.
Experience the neighborhood's rich culture and culinary tradition as you head to the hundred year-old bakery where you'll be introduced to the Pizza in Teglia. Learn about the three different ways of making Italian pizzas in this charming retro-style bakery.
Continue to a Deli or "Gastronomia," as a local would say. Taste pure, artisan ingredients used as toppings for different kinds of pizzas and learn which toppings should be added while baking and after baking. Try the Chinotto, a typical Italian soft drink produced from the juice of the myrtle-leaved orange tree's fruit.
Then, visit the heart of Monti District for a fun-filled historical tour. Your expert guide will share interesting stories and anecdotes about the area which also houses the famous Flavian Amphitheatre or the Colosseum. The next stop presents sliced Pizza Alla Pala, cooked this time not in a tin but on oven flint rock.
The next stop leads us to the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, the largest Marian Basilica of Italy where Pope Francesco celebrated his first mass as a Pope. Discover the tomb of one of famous Italian artist Gianlorenzo Berniniand of Paoline Bonaparte, the sister of Napoleon.
Your final stop will be at a wood oven pizzeria where you can stretch your legs and relax while enjoying the art of making pizza as you watch Pizzaiolo the pizza man.
