Eating Italy Food Tours

Has anyone done Eating Italy Food Tours - We are going to Rome for a long weekend in November with our two little girls. Thought this would be a fun kid-friendly activity. Other suggestions of kid-friendly foodie activities in Rome would be appreciated.

  1. Hi Sasha,
    Eating Italy recently asked me to try out one of their tours, but I haven't had a chance to do it yet.

    How old are your girls? Depending on their age, you might want to do a pasta making class with them? Otherwise, maybe work in a food related activity to break from more traditional sightseeing things. (rather than a full fledged only food tour?)
    Food for kids in Rome can be easy and fun.
    Some things to aim for:
    pizza bianca and other pizza by the slice.
    Frullati: The Italian version of a fruit smoothie
    Gelato: of course!
    Biscottificio: There are a few old fashioned biscotti bakeries in town. Would be fun to go to one and let them choose a few kinds.

      Thanks for your response. The girls are 1 & 3.5 so quite small, but they both like to eat and the older one likes to cook (we make focaccia together regularly). The 3.5 year old calls Italy the land of pasta, but I wonder if she is too small for a pasta making class. I guess I thought the tour might work well because they are happy to be in their strollers, see the sights, and snack. The biscotti bakery sounds fun, can you suggest any good address?
