Description


Roman Castles and wine tasting


You will meet your driver at ship dock or at tender mooring; he will wait for you handling the Onirikos arrival board.

He will drive you to Rome where you will meet your Professional Guide in order to experience a unique excursion.

Leaving the roar of the city traffic behind, you travel along the ancient Via Appia and Via Tuscolana roads southeast of the Italian capital to reach a series of ancient towns, better known as the Castelli Romani. The "Roman Castles" are comprised of sixteen historic hill towns, immersed in a landscape of lakes and woods which, since the times of the Empire, when the nobility of Rome built some of their most sumptuous out-of-town retreats here, have been admired for their immense beauty, clean air, and pleasantly mild climate. To this very day, any number of the patrician villas which once served as summer residences for Italy's aristocrats and popes, can be seen. Your exploration of the Castelli Romani begins in Frascati, famous for the delicious white wine produced here.

The wine of the Frascati area has always been Rome’s most famous wine, both in Italy and in the rest of the world. It is possibly the wine with the longest historical tradition.

You will visit one of the largest estate of Frascati, The estate extends over an area of 118 acres out of which 100 are planted with vineyards. From there you head to Castel Gandolfo and the elegant summer residence of the Pope. Here we admire the work of the architect Gianlorenzo Bernini, to whom both the fountain in the main square and the baroque church of San Tommaso da Villanova have been attributed.

You will see many other amazing locations, your visit will be instense and extremely interesting!

After the tour your driver will escort you back to the Port.

About Us

We offer unique access to some of the most unavailable & undiscovered experiences one can imagine. A Milan shopping experience in a fashion designer’s showroom? A private dinner in Venice on the roof terrace of Peggy Guggenheim? Quad bike trekking on the active Etna volcano with an extreme-sport guide? Whatever your client can dream, we can deliver. We focus on designing non-Googleable experiences—watching the Palio di Siena horse race from a hot-air balloon; visiting the private castle where the Godfather trilogy was shot. Kids love visiting an ice cream factory, while big kids clamor for a chance to drive a Maserati or Lamborghini.

Visit to Excavation underneath the Vatican • Truffle Hunt in Tuscany or Piemonte • Vasari Corridor in Florence • Private visit to the Sistine Chapel
