*Two Wine tastings (total of 6) and tours + food sampling* Insiders Tour & Exclusive Wine & Food Tasting at Eataly and a Local family-run Enoteca. We will spend the afternoon exploring the undiscovered, uber-cool area of Ostiense (my former neighborhood). I've put together an interesting mix of authentic activities so you can get a real sense of the neighborhood and feel like one of the locals. We'll begin with an insiders tour and exclusive wine tasting with food pairing at Eataly - completely customized for us. I've also factored in some time for you to browse around this massive, mecca of supermarkets (where you will receive a special discount) before we head over to our last and final stop - a second-generation, family-run enoteca, loved by locals. This 90-minute degustation in 2 locations explores the 3 different Italian regions of Lazio, Tuscany, and Piedmont with one of the most gracious and passionate sommeliers in Rome. Tasting includes 6 wines total (a prosecco, white and a red) paired with some light finger food. Everything prepared according to the local traditions and only using fresh and seasonal products. Also included is a brief tour of the underground wine cellar. Our evening ends with a little walk and some gelato at one of the best places in Rome.
Ciao! I'm Lauren, an Italian-American from Brooklyn, former NY ad exec, now turned resident of Rome. I am passionate about all things Italian (especially when it comes to food & drink) and am so happy that I can share the very best of my beloved Rome with those who are visiting. I've been giving food tours with a small, local company here in Rome which led to me creating my own aperitivo tour on Airbnb Experiences. I absolutely love that I can introduce this extremely Italian ritual to others but what I am passionate about most is creating customized itineraries for my clients to have the most authentic experiences and bridging the gap between those visiting to my favorite, local establishments - many of which are off-the-beaten tourist track.
The following food samplings are included: -Gelato -Customized food tasting (meats, cheeses, bread) at Eataly -Light snacks…
-Exclusive Tour & Wine tasting (3 total) at Eataly -Customized Wine tasting (3 total) & tour of 2nd generation family-owned…
This tour explores the very heart of Ostiense an uber-cool, but generally unknown neighborhood - full of locals. I've created this itinerary which will be a good sampling of not only food and drink - but it will also give you a good feel for this neighborhood and the locals who live in it.
Please let me know of any food allergies or dislikes prior to the tour so I can make arrangements to accommodate appropriately! Non-Alcoholic drinks can be provided, if requested in advance.
