Shopping in Rome - Tours in the Country

Cooking Lessons & Food/Wine Tours:

Cooking lessons
You can choose between cooking classes in Rome with “chef” Dana or combine then with a day in the country, in the land known since ancient times for its olive oil: la Sabina. All dishes will be prepared according to time tested recipes, enhanced by extra virgin olive oil. “Chef” Anna will teach you to make olive bread along with 14 additional antipasti, all in a traditional wood burning stove. You'll also learn to prepare three types of fresh pasta such as fettuccine, ravioli and stringozzi as well as three types of sauces.

Food & Wine/Cultural Tours
Our food & wine/cultural tours combine a visit to the sights with a sampling of some of the area's wines or a stroll through some of the most well known local produce markets where the colors and aromas will stimulate your senses. You'll get a taste of the best ice cream (gelato) and we'll introduce you to what is possibly Rome’s best gourmet store…” (New York Times – Sophisticated Traveler). We can enjoy an espresso while admiring the wonderful “Fontana dei 4 Fiumi” by Bernini seated in a comfortable caffè in Piazza Navona. After a walk among the ruins of Teatro di Marcello, built by Augustus for his sister Ottavia in 23 b.c., we can stop in for a “crispy carciofo alla Giudia” or sip a limoncello while under the spell of the Colosseum.
