Leaving the Ghetto, you’ll head to an artisanal cheese shop to learn the long history of local cheesemaking as you taste Pecorino Romano and other Italian cheeses over a bottle of local white wine. Pairing food and drink is very important to Romans so your next stop is one of the city’s most iconic delis to try the deep-fried mozzarella and rice balls called supplì. Another is the encyclopedic range of charcuterie that you will try at a nearby butcher. From salamis spiked with fennel, truffles or Barolo wine, to cured pork and a few surprises, you’ll enjoy a wide range of meats along with a nice glass of red wine.
