Ancient Etruria and Wine Tasting Tour
Discover the ancient Etruria region and Roman-age Aurelian Way, built in the III century B.C. by the Romans after they defeated the first inhabitants of the area: the Etruscans. One of the first roads built by the Ancient Romans, driving through it, you can admire the ruins in the middle of the olives trees and vineyards.
Vulci and the Archaeological Site
Our first stop will be at the Archaeological Park in Vulci where you will start a guided tour and admire the ancient Francois Tomb. This is a unique piece that represents the sixth king of Rome (Servio Tullio) who had Etruscan origins. Next to that, you will have some time for a pleasant walk through nature and the ruins of an ancient Etruscan village, beautifully well kept. From there, by a guided path you can easily reach the Pellicone pond, an hidden small lake surrounded by steep rocky hills.
Tuscan food and wine
Together with your driver, you can reach one of the local restaurants for an authentic and delicious lunch with some traditional Tuscan food based on simply vegetables, tasty cheese and beef. For vegetarians, it’s easy to find alternatives on the menu.
In the afternoon, we will drive you through a very small and unique medieval village that only counts 9 inhabitants living there, to reach a local winery. We’ll start a guided visit of the estate and you will learn about the wine production processes from the grapes in the vineyards, to the ageing cellar. The guided tour will conclude with a rich ‘Est Est Est’ wine tasting, paired with some small snacks and cheese.
At the end of the tour your personal driver will take you back to your starting location in Rome.
