Full description
Travel outside of Rome along the beautiful Appian Way, enjoying the wonderful view of ancient Roman ruins caught in the middle of vineyards and olive trees, lit up in warm colors and fawned by the fresh, ocean air. Your first stop of the day is to the Archaeological Park of Vulci, where you will be able to take a long and pleasant walk in the nature through the ruins of an ancient Etruscan village. As you continue, pass the beautiful Pellicone Lake, the setting of many famous Italian movies, and stop at a local restaurant in the Park for a delicious Tuscan lunch, accompanied by water and wine. After lunch, make your way to a picturesque medieval village, which counts only 9 inhabitants in all, for some breathtaking views over the landscape. Head over to a local winery where an expert will give you a brief tour, followed by a tasting of four types of local wines paired with three types of local cheese.

Excellent, interesting and well thought out day

We appreciated our guides knowledge of the region and her ability to impart information in a friendly , informal way. We loved the seeing the historical sights, and learning about the area, and we especially enjoyed our lunch at a local , family owned restaurant, with great food, ambiance and wine . We would have enjoyed seeing another winery or two, but we're very satisfied . Laura was excellent and I highly recommend her

Magical day of private touring!

This tour was wonderful. From being picked up by Luigi at our hotel, to touring the ruins and walking through the countryside with our wonderful guide, to a delicious home cooked meal at the Oil Factory to the wine tasting, it was wonderful. I think the high point must have been our lunch and the olive oil tasting, as that was spectacular and everything was delicious. Our tour guide was charismatic, fun and a joy to spend the day with. Her English was fantastic and we really enjoyed spending the time with her. The only area for improvement would have been the wine tasting, as we would have really loved to have tasted some prossecco, but that's a minor note.
