Walkaround tour in Rome
On DAY1, after the welcome and the check in at the hotel, our expert guide will accompany you for a private walkaround tour in Rome. Your English speaking guide will tell you all about the history of these unique places. The Colosseum, built more than 2000 years ago, is still one of the major attractions that Rome has to offer. During its glory days, the Colosseum seated about 50,000 people and presented, among others, spectacular gladiatorial contests. Today, you canstill marvel at its beautiful architecture and you can dream yourself back in time, to those days when the Amphitheatre was filled with the excited voices of thousands of Romans as they watched the gladiators fight. Marvel at the wonderful architecture of Piazza Venezia. Retrace the history of Altare della Patria (the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier), which serves as an amazing vantage point from which you can enjoy breathtaking views of Rome. Follow your guide to the Trevi Fountain, the largest Baroque fountain in the city and one of the most beautiful fountains in the whole world. Completed in 1762, the fountain has for a long time been associated with a wonderful legend. If you throw a coin into the fountain, you are certain to return to Rome.
On DAY2, in the morning time, you will do Italian cuisine courses, where you will learn traditional dishes of Italian and Roman food: pasta, pizza, seconds, and desserts. The courses take place in totally practical way: the chef shows the steps to follow and the participants replicate, each individually, in their desk, in individual portions, the dishes on the menu. First, you will head to the central food market with the Chef for picking up the ingredients for your lunch. You will meet the butchers, the bakers, and the farmers selling vegetables from their gardens. You will learn how to distinguish the highest quality ingredients and taste local foods and wines! After that you will reach the school which is based in front of Basilica of St. John Lateran, in a unique structure: a kitchen with 16 workstations and 16 cooktops, which enable the guests to cook individually and independently; it all takes place on the street level that makes, the present protagonists of a show in the eyes of passers, looking through the windows. Of course, you will eat your own dish, so you’d better be an attentive student while the Chef is teaching! In the afternoon, you will be transferred in Siena with our luxury Mercedes minivan (about 2,5 hours).

Discover “Cantina Antinori”
On DAY5, after the breakfast, you will have the chance to discover one of the most famous winery in Italy, the “Cantina Antinori”.

Built entirely with locally sourced materials, respectful of the surrounding environment and preserving with great care the Tuscan landscape, it’s a milestone in the history of the Marchesi Antinori company. The winery has become a place to discover the pleasures of living and breathing wine and to understand its progression: pressing, fermentation and aging – all without interfering with the wine’s quality. The winery recounts about 26 generations of wine passion, Tuscan essence, tradition and steady innovation to who requests an extraordinary and unique experience. The visit will finish in the “Rinuccio 1180” restaurant overlooking over the hills of Chianti, where Cont’Ugo and Guado al Tasso and the dessert wine Muffato della Sala will accompany dishes from the Tuscan tradition re-elaborated in a contemporary vein.
