Cooking Vacations In Rome (Lazio)

Explore the flavors of Rome on our Italy food tours in the Lazio region

Journey to the Eternal City of Rome, the capital of Italy’s Lazio region, on an authentic cooking vacation in Italy with The International Kitchen and experience the country like an insider. Rome is one of the most visited cities of Europe, and it’s easy to see why. Whether your tastes run to the ancient – such as the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, the Circus Maximus, and the Palatine Hill – or to the ecclesiastical – with the Vatican City and some of the world’s most famous churches and religious works of art – Rome has plenty to offer every traveler on our culinary tours of Rome and Lazio.

But Lazio is not just Rome. Travel outside of the capital city to experience the stunning gardens of the Villa d’Este in Tivoli, the hilltop castle towns of Bracciano and Odescalchi, ancient Etruscan tombs and Roman cities, miles of coastline with pristine beaches, and so many authentic foodie experiences to satisfy any culinary traveler on a foodie tour of Rome and Lazio.

Lazio is home to a microclimate that produces some of the country’s best fruits, vegetables, and olives, allowing Roman culinary specialties to flourish, and you can explore them on our food tours in Rome and its surroundings. Roman cuisine definitely has its fair share of meat, but Lazio is dotted with lakes, so there is also an abundance of seafood. Lazio is a very diverse region, offering sandy beaches on the stunning coast of the Tyrrhenian sea, volcanic mountainous regions, charming hill towns, and its main city, Rome. Our cooking classes and food tours in Rome and Lazio will afford you the opportunity to take full advantage of the region’s bountiful harvests and ancient culinary traditions.
