Our 90-Minute Tours: The perfect Food & Wine Tour formula

We have created the perfect food & wine tour formula: 90-minute experiences that focus on single foods and drinks. In just 90 minutes, you get an in-depth understanding because you taste, talk and learn about your favorite food or wine, all throughout. Right, your favorite local food or drink, because you have many different single topic tours to choose from, one or any combination of them, and they are all located in downtown Rome.

We have designed a tour for every palate and we have framed them around your needs: morning and evening tours, walking tours, sit-down tastings, family & kids friendly tours, tastings for wine lovers. And they are all under €60!


Our Special Editions: Exclusive Food & Wine Experiences

When it comes to designing local food & wine experiences, the sky is our limit.
