What you'll do

On our Secret Urban Wine Tours: Rome, you'll enjoy a variety of classic and amazing Italian wines.

We'll introduce you to the complex world of Italian wines; sampling from Tuscany, Piedmont, Sicily, and local wines from the Roman countryside.

Our expert sommeliers will take you on an unforgettable journey exploring secret locations, enjoying Italian wines, and learning about the best pairings in an atmosphere that is comfortable and relaxing.

Please be aware the legal drinking age in Italy is 18. Therefore, we are unable to accommodate anyone younger than 18.

However our Secret Food Tour: Rome is child and family friendly, and a great option for children over 6 and under 18.

A thoughtfully curated Upgraded Food Package is available.

  • We'll start in the Monti district, Rome's most traditional rione. Here, local artisans, trendy shops, and traditional restaurants exist in harmony.
  • Steps away from the Roman Forum and Colosseum are hidden cobblestone streets. We'll navigate and show you hidden views of the ruins, as we head to our first enoteca (wine bar).
  • You'll taste six Italian wines including: Prosecco, Nebbiolo, Nero D'avola, and Rosè.
  • We'll visit three unique enotecas, where your guide, an expert sommelier, will reveal the stories behind our wines and their unique heritage. You'll learn about the winemaking techniques, and little known facts about several of the wines you'll be enjoying.
  • Enjoy our Secret Sip while gazing at Roman ruins during sunset.

The tour includes food pairings at each stop, but does not consist of a full meal. If you want to enhance your wine tasting experience, consider adding the Upgraded Food Package.

WHY THE MONTI DISTRICT?

On this Urban Wine Tour we'll be exploring the backstreets of Old Imperial Rome, the Suburra, a popular district where even the Emperors ventured in disguise in search of the real voice of the people of Rome. Nowadays Monti (as we call it today) became the place to find the coolest shops, restaurants and wine-bars of Rome. Only a few steps away from Colosseum, Monti still manages to remain an undiscovered place of magic, hidden off-the-beaten track amongst ruins that have stood for thousands of years.
In the shadow of the arches and columns, you'll feel like you're returning to the time of the gladiators, emperors and the citizens going about their business. We'll lift our glasses and toast just as they did, in the times before.

Foreign Transaction Fees

A few banks have charged their customer an extra fee while booking with us (this isn't the booking fee but another fee added by the bank). We think this is unfair, if this happens let us know by showing us in your bank statement and we will refund this fee as a gesture of good will.
