Food tours in Rome and other tours as well

Jump to last reply

Yes, I'm still asking questions. Thank you for your patience with me this go round.

I have Minchelli's food app and read the wonderful trip report written here about the food tour with her. I contacted her and she would be happy to do a food tour with us and it sounds heavenly. The glitch? The price. I'm gasping a little.

So, my first question is if you can recommend anyone else for a food tour? I see that VinoRoma has one and they will even go on a Sunday which would fit perfectly in our itinerary. Has anyone used them? Any other suggestions? It doesn't have to be a private tour, but I would prefer a very small group.

Secondly - I am not a novice to tours in Rome. We have used Context and Walks in Italy. Both were excellent. I'd give the nod to Context just because of group size and not having to wear those dratted head phones. These tours were both over 4 hours with lots of standing and information. Enjoyable, but tiring.

This time we are looking for something less indepth and not as long. More of a really interesting overview of Ancient Rome - Colosseum, Forum, etc. Same thing with the Vatican. Any suggestions? Perhaps a private guide?

Also, I have found that you can buy the early entry tickets to the Vatican but not go with a group. You enter with the early groups but you are on your own. Any thoughts on that?

I can't tell you how much I appreciate your help, thoughts, suggestions.
