Tour duration

11 Hours, Includes Breaks


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! 10 Tastings is indeed BIG. You won’t find a more fun or satisfying food experience when in Rome! Your foodie guide is from Rome and she has chosen her favorite snack spots in the historic center. Indulge in a delectable food tour that takes you across the River Tiber during the enchanting early evening hours. Feast your eyes on spectacular views in all directions while making stops at some of the most picturesque locations in Rome. Savor the best cuisine the city has to offer as you unwind in tranquil piazzas, tucked-away side streets, and delightful riverside paths.

Delight in a diverse selection of regional cuisine that is as bountiful as it is unique. You’ll try: suppli, calzone and pizza, pasta to share (cacio e pepe, carbonara or amatriciana), parmigiana, arrosticini and bruschetta, filetto baccalà, salami with a small glass of wine, ciambellina al vino, tiramisù, coffee, and limoncello.
