Campo de' Fiori

In Ancient Rome they mosty used honey and cheese to prepare their cakes, often served with wine at the end of their banquet. They used to call desserts Secundae Mensae. Sugar was unknown until the Crusades and it is only at the end of the Middle Ages and after the discovery of the New World that will beused more and more in pastries preparations. In more recent times new desserts were created and became very famous such as Tiramisù and Zuppa Inglese. The mix of cheese such as Mascarpone, coffee, liqueurs and other local ingredients gave this cakes a special flavour and worldwide fame. On this tour you will taste a large variety of Italian cakes and pastries in many different typical shops where you will have the chance to meet and talk to the artisans.

We did the sweets tour with Maria and had a great time. She is so personable and told us lots about the areas we walked through as we went from stop to stop…and she was able to skip some sizable lines to get us some delicious treats! Come very hungry and expect to leave very full. It was a wonderful start to our trip!


My daughter and I did a private dessert tour with Greta. Greta was great. She made tour interesting and told us a lot of history. We stopped at seven places and had some really good desserts. It was a really nice time

Our first full day in Rome, we met up with Giorgia for a dessert tour through the center of Rome. We had seven dessert stops - definitely sugar overload! It was more than just dessert though - we also visited some sites such as the Pantheon. Giorgia did a great job picking out very different types of desserts, and sharing background about the shops or desserts as we went. She also then gave us some ideas of good places to eat for the rest of our trip (and our favorite meal in Rome was at a place she recommended). Overall, a sweet way to be introduced to Rome.
