Booked the Eating Italy Food Tour through Viator.com.   This was a nice tour with a great guide who made the day enjoyable despite the heat and walking.  Was a bit surprised that we spent over one hour in a cemetery during a food tour.  Think this time would have been better spent in the Testaccio Market visiting with local vendors and sitting down a bit.  I'll let the pictures below do the talking on this one.
