#CurrentlyWriting I've been very fortunate to have met many many lovely souls all throughout Italy. Benny Bianchini from @localaromas is one such passionate lady. She has gone through a lot of personal hardships in the past 6 years yet has managed to move past those and open a food tour company in the eternal city with her sister!!!!! Her vigor for Roman food and people + her love for the city is so amazing and additive. @localaromas offers Wine tours, cooking classes and tasting in and around Rome. Stay tuned for my experience of their food tour🍷🍝
How much does a tour cost??
Local Aromas offers different tours, tasting and classes in the city of Rome and the cost depends on what you are really looking at! That being said, the average cost of a Roman street food tour costs around €50-55 while a four tasting Pasta Tour costs around €74! You can check more tour details here.
Why should you book through Local Aromas??
I don’t think I need to reiterate that the founders are Romans. They know it all. The city. The food. The people. Tutto. If you are visiting Rome and are looking for something authentic, there is no one better to book than with them!
I’ve taken tours with other organizations all over Rome and the best ones for me are the locals that know the city!
Which tour did I take??
My husband and I took The Christmas Food Walking Tour (we traveled during Christmas!!). We were thoroughly spoilt! Not only was the tour fun because we were swapping Italy stories but also so delicious and more personalized! I also learnt a lot more about the Roman neighborhood of Trastevere thanks to the tour!
Benedetta was an excellent host and we had a very enjoyable evening. She enriched us with her knowledge of regional food and history of Rome! (Valeria- see you the next time!!)
We stopped for traditional tastings that more or less included wine at every stop 😉
Whats new at Local Aromas??
Local Aromas has recently also launched their Rome by Night Wine Tasting Tour at €95. I’ve already recommended this to a friend who is in Rome this month and can’t wait for her to try it! Please show some love to the Local Aromas family on their Instagram pages:
