Walk & Taste is the perfect choice to gain a deeper knowledge of Italian wines in a friendly and relaxed setting, discovering some curious aspects and some little-known corners of Rome.
The meeting point is at the Pyramid, in the heart of Ancient Rome, same area as Circus Maximus and Colosseum.
We start our wine tour near the Colle Aventino, one of the magical Seven Hills on which the city was original built. Here, even the trees are ancient and are cared for as an integral part of Rome’s historic heritage. Nowadays, the Aventino Hill is an elegant residential district, where the villas of the rich and famous rise side by side with ancient churches and where you will find some of the most beautiful green areas and panoramic views of the historic city.
We make our way through the streets of Testaccio, another ancient district of Rome, with a genuine and popular soul and typical shops and wineries, as well as a famous street market. Here, even the smallest shops have room for an incredible variety of foods: salami, ham and cheese coming from all over Italy, warm bread and crispy focaccia, artichokes, mushrooms and olives of all sorts, olive oil, pastry and biscuits. After feasting your eyes, it is time for a customized tasting with Italian wines under the guidance of your expert guide.
