PIZZA BAKING CLASS
It’s said that a pizza slice a day keeps the sadness away, and what better chance than your Italian escape to learn how to make and bake everybody’s favorite food? Join our family-friendly class of no more than 12 people at the That’s Amore restaurant, a few steps away from the Trevi Fountain. We’ll meet there for this hands-on activity. Spoiler: kids will love it! Our local trusted pizza chef will introduce you to the noble art of pizza making, a pretty serious tradition that requires a very precise process. Don’t be scared though: they will show you every technique and follow you through every step. During this afternoon class, you’ll learn what ingredients are needed to make the perfect pizza dough, how to knead it and how to top it properly. And you’ll do it yourself, choosing your own ingredients: you’ll be free to experiment with various recipes and toppings. Bake the pizza in the oven and wait for it to turn into a thin-and-crispy-butstill-fluffy delicacy. While the pizza is in the oven, enjoy your well-earned rest! Relax and immerse yourself in the unique experience of an Italian pizza dinner. Start with a tasty bruschetta and make a toast to the good life: water, wine or a soft drink is included. Taste the pizza you prepared and find out whether you developed the skills of an authentic pizzaiolo (Italian for pizza-chef); then celebrate with a lovely dessert. Tour ends after the dinner at the restaurant, return to the hotel on your own.

ROME FOOD TOUR
Foodies of the world, unite! Whether you’re a seasoned gour - mand or just a food lover wishing to find out more about Ro - man cuisine and Italian food traditions, reach our meeting point. You’ll join our local food connoisseur guide for a food walk, in a group of no more than 12 people (and yes, you’ll try and taste lots of different treats!). We’ll meet mid-morn - ing and enjoy a lovely walking tour through local food markets, grocery stores and gelato shops in the areas of Campo De’ Fiori, Trastevere, and the Jewish Ghetto. We know that exercise makes one hungry, that’s why we thought you’d appreciate some pit-stops. For instance, you’ll enjoy a slice of freshly baked crispy pizza bianca (Rome’s own version of focaccia) cut in half horizontally and filled with thin slices of freshly cut mortadella: a traditional, more-Ro - man-than-theColosseum easy snack that locals love. And what about trying a supplì? This little ball of deep-fried to - mato sauce risotto with a heart of melted mozzarella cheese is everyone’s favorite street food. Pasta will be on the list too, along with some dishes from the Roman Jewish tradition: the carciofo alla giudia a Jewish style deep-fried artichoke that resembles a tiny sunflower or the fried zucchini flower (according to seasonality). And save some space for dessert, because we won’t skip our portion of artisan gelato ! Tour ends after the dinner at the restaurant, return to the hotel on your own.
