Italy, Rome Guide (B): Eating Like a Local on a Rome Food Tour

Regular readers will know that a good food tour is one of my favourite ways to explore a city. Rome was no exception. A culinary encounter with The Roman Food Tour took my taste buds on an adventure around the city on the best Rome food tour ever.
