The day's program spreads out in this way: at 8:00 a.m. the driver will meet you at the place you have indicated to meet and welcome you before departing in comfort to Caprarola. The road to this location is extra-urban and you will get to see the Latium countryside and its landscapes. Upon reaching Caprarola you will find yourself in the presence of the imposing Villa Farnese. This sumptuous mansion, built by the noble family that gives it its name, is one of the finest examples of Mannerist architecture and has a peculiar pentagonal shape positioned above the town's built-up area. The interior is a veritable treasure trove with impressive artistic works that will leave you totally speechless, opening up a world of colors, images and glimpses that you do not expect. The guide's passion for this important monument will frame an interesting visit that will stimulate your curiosity. At the end of the visit, we will drive up for the second stop of the day, that is, to Civita di Bagnoregio or otherwise known as "the dying town." This hamlet in the municipality of Bagnoregio is located on high ground in the middle of a valley of gullies, which gives it a special evocative quality. It can be reached by a footbridge that connects the town to the parking lot. It is nicknamed the "dying town" as the weathering erosion is causing the decay of the village and the hills where it sits on.

With our energy restored and our stomachs full, we set off again on the last leg of this journey through upper Lazio and southern Umbria, reaching Orvieto.

Of this rich heritage, together with your guide you will walk through the city streets to capture the atmosphere and colors and then visit two important pieces of this heritage, both underground: The Well of the Quarry and St. Patrick's Well (the latter we are sure will leave you speechless). At the end of the visits you will have some free time to continue freely visiting Orvieto before getting back into your car and returning to Rome

This was a fabulous tour. Most food tours have you standing up and eating a small portion as you go. Not this one! We sat down at multiple places and even when we stood, it was for short periods of time and the food was worth it! Hilaria was our guide and she had so much knowledge! So not only did we eat, we learned so much! I would highly recommend this tour and especially Hilaria!

Although the tour was in English, the guide spoke very clearly and was understood perfectly. The amount of food was very good. I would only put to improve that the main meal had some fish or meat. Otherwise exceptional. It included 3 stops with starters. 1 stop to eat a lot of a lot of pasta. And three dessert stops!! Very good and the explanations of the points of interest a ten

Simona was awesome. We thoroughly enjoyed the food, conversation, history, and laughs. Even though this was not a tour for gluten free, Simona called ahead and arranged uptions. Did i mention she was awesome?! Would happily join Simona on other small group food tours.

This was a great experience and we highly recommend you do it. Very interesting and great fun. There is a lot of food so go hungry. Also the food was amazing. Be aware there is plenty of walking.

Taking this tour was a delicious way to introduce us to the foods of Rome. The variety was good and the historical information made these locations come alive.
