This tour is for real food, history and arts lovers.
Half day food tour to the beautiful Ariccia, a little town in the national park of Castelli Romani, in the Alban Hills. On this unique tour we combine history, arts and food of Rome. We begin the tour in the beautiful, baroque palace built by the genius of architecture and sculpture Gian Lorenzo Bernini, for the rich and influential Chigi family, in 17th century. With local expert guide we explore the Piano Nobile (The Noble Floor) of this romantic palace, and after the visit of the Noble Floor continue to the baroque museum of the palace. The museum is a large collection of paintings and furniture made by great Italian artists, from all regions of Italy, of the baroque period. The visit allows you to learn more about history of Rome and Italy of 17th century, and to appreciate the beauty of baroque style.

After the tour of the palace and museum, your guide will take you to the local taverna, situated in the same beautiful neighborhood of Ariccia, to try real, 100% authentic, Roman cuisine made with fresh, local produce. This little taverna or Hosteria is family-owned and operated and they specialize in Roman specialties and ancient foods and recipes cooked by Romans since the beginning of time, before the arrival of tomatoes to Italy. This is not just any lunch, but a spiritual experience, a meditation; we sit around a large table and try all kinds of fresh, organic cheeses, sausages, cold cuts, smoked meats, pastas and vegetables, we learn the secrets, the stories, the recipes and the anecdotes behind all these dishes. And of course you will try the most famous Roman specialty of them all: Porchetta. It is a perfect opportunity to make new friends and spend a wonderful afternoon in a company of great people. And, of course, no real Roman meal would be complete without a glass of wine, or two, and a shot of locally made grappa afterwards.

The tour was awesome!I am happy that my partner and I decided to venture “off the beaten path” and take this tour with More of Rome. Everything went so smooth. The palace was amazing and the Roman lunch was to die for.
