Experience

Highlights
  • Experience rustic vineyard walks and wine tastings aplenty
  • Enjoy a great lunch with more wine followed by free time for shopping and strolling
  • Taste your way through Frascati shops and bakeries with a local sommelier and foodie guide
Full description
Your guide will meet you as you arrive at Frascati train station. Once introductions are made, your local guide and sommelier will lead you on a walking tour of the shops and botteghe in Frascati, tasting local specialties all along the way including revered local delicacies such as roasted pork (porchetta), biscotti just out of the antique wood fired oven, and jug wine from the oldest bakery and tavern in town. Oldest meaning hundreds of years old yet still adhering to the age old traditions that render their products unlike any other. Be sure to leave plenty of room as the best is yet to come!

Transportation will be provided to the Old Frascati Vineyard, a historic and renowned family-owned winery that has been producing wine in the region for seven generations. Explore the grounds together, wandering amongst hand-tended vines, then look inside the 'secret' underground laboratories used to hide persecuted families during world war 2 and used today to store wine.

Follow with a guided tasting of each of the winery's products, including Frascati Superiore DOCG white wine, Vagnolo IGP red wine, and Frascati DOC White Wine. Savor the family's extra virgin olive oils paired with a selection of delicious breads.

Bid farewell to the winery and swap vineyards for lunch in a hand-picked trattoria featuring the very best cured meats, cheeses, oils, breads, and pasta, and of course - more wine. After lunch and an espresso, wave goodbye to your hosts and head back to Rome.

Frascati is a beautiful small town, great to get away from the city.

Paola our guide and a Paola at the winery were excellent hosts. We very much enjoyed the food and seeing a small family owned vineyard. Also, we actually took an earlier train than what was recommended and had the typical breakfast, coffee and a pastry, while looking out at the country. Once we joined the group, it was nothing but fun because as expected, by the end, many of us were tipsy!

Great experience, Max was an awesome tour guide!

Easy to figure out, train was simple, upon arrival Max met us at the landing and brought us through a unique tour of the town with lots of laughs and info. Food/vineyard/WINE were all great. There are a decent amount of steps/hills/walking so if you’re out of shape just prepare for this as we saw some that struggled. Would definitely recommend!

My favorite part of my visit to Rome!

This tour was phenomenal and such a great value for what we received. The tour guide met us right as we stepped off the train. My group started with the winery tour first, which was very interesting and came with 3 wine tastings and accompanying food samples. The tour of Frascati itself was wonderful, with many historical details and stops at local businesses. They made you feel like a local! The lunch they dropped us off at was incredible and one of my best meals in Rome. The group size was perfect for getting to know one another as well. I could not recommend this tour enough!
