  • 2-in-1 St. Peter’s Dome Climb & Rome Street Food Walk

Beat the crowds and start your day with a climb to the top of St. Peter’s Dome for the most stunning panoramic view of Rome, then regroup later for an authentic street food experience led by a born and bred Roman – join us and eat as the Romans do!


  • Tour St. Peter’s Basilica literally from “Top to bottom” with this exclusive guided tour
  • Get up close and inside Michaelangelo’s majestic dome and experience a view of Rome like no other
  • Go behind the scenes with a Roman-born local foodie guide
  • Enjoy 10 different foods after a morning of climbing and walking


First steps up to the top of Michelangelo’s dome begin on the marble paving stones of St. Peter’s Square. There are 551 steps in total so we take the elevator part way which cuts the count to an easier 380 steps. Don’t worry — we take our time and enjoy plenty of staircase breaks! After taking in the remarkable views from the dome, rest awhile before entering St. Peter’s Basilica, where Bernini’s sculptures and Michelangelo’s art rise above Holy Papal tombs and the perceived necropolis of St. Peter himself.  After a morning of walking and climbing, be sure to bring your appetite for a food tour like no other!

Meet your guide in Trastevere, the most characteristic neighborhood of Rome. From there we set off on Rome’s ultimate street food journey across the Tiber and through the cobblestone streets and squares of the Eternal City on a mission to taste the most genuine food Rome has to offer. Try an authentic Roman pizza (which of course goes hand-in-hand with a crispy fried supplì with melted mozzarella), sink your teeth into a crispy panzerotto, and to wash it all down – a taste of  some delectable Lazio region wine!

The protagonist of this foodie adventure is naturally an out-of-this-world carbonara, which is not just a dish of pasta but a way of life for Romans. After this piece de resistance,  enjoy  the sweet contrast of ciambelline al vino. And last but not least, experience the sweet ambrosia of a tiramisù and an artisanal gelato. This epic food tour offers far more than just a chance to taste delicious food—it’s a journey of discovery, connection, and gastronomic immersion you won’t forget!
