Tours and Tickets by Old Frascati Food & Wine
Pizza Making and Wine Tasting
This pizza making experience is one that you shouldn't miss when visiting Rome. This tour gets you out of the city to the wonderful town of Frascati. Your local guide will starts the tour with an exploration of her hometown making a stop for wine and treats at the only wood-burning bakery in Frascati. After a little more time exploring, it is time to meet Claudio to learn how to make a proper Italian pizza. Antipasta and wine is served when arriving at the beautifully quaint restaurant followed by a tutorial and hands-on experience of building your own pizza from scratch. After you have made your own dough you will then create your own pizza and cook it in the brick oven next door.
Classic Half-Day Wine Tour in Frascati
Discover all the best Frascati has to offer from its charming city center, beautiful views and vineyards, an historic family-run winery, and fresh local cuisine. This half-day tour from Rome will stimulate your senses and rejuvenate your spirit. Frascati is an easy 25 minute train ride from Rome and is part of the Castelli Romani or ‘Roman Castles. Things move at a slower pace in Frascati. Nowhere is this fact better represented than in the the way food is produced and prepared. Porchetta is cooked in a wood burning oven for over 8 hours. The olive oil is extra virgin and cold pressed. The pasta is all hand-made. Our wine is still made with ancient techniques first used by the Romans. Here, the local baker, winemaker, tavern owner, and restaurant owner all value organic and locally sourced products. Not because its trendy, but because it’s tradition!

We had such a great time, lovely hostess who told us all about the small town Frascati! Then we were introduced to a great pizza maker who makes the dough for over 50 years! What a great way to experience authentic Italian food and do something with your own hands.

Absolutely amazing! Everyone was just so welcoming and kind to us! We walked through the town and learned all about the history and talked to the sweet locals. After we got to try some local wines and make pizza! Making the pizza was so much fun and tasted amazing! It felt very relaxed and after making the pizza we could sit and enjoy some wine! If you are going to Rome I recommend this tour! They give amazing instructions and even videos on how to take the train from Rome!…

This was a memorable tour. Wonderful guide, wonderful itinerary. Great time at the restaurant to finish the day. I've been telling friends to do this tour on their visits to Rome.

Loved this winery! Only 20 min by train from Rome. Pick up at the railway station and brought to the winery. Beautiful countryside, magical setting. We made raviolli from scratch and fettuccine. Lots of fun and camaraderie. Our guide Stephanie was wonderful. We ate what we made and more, they even provided gluten free for me. Wine was delicious and the atmosphere memorable. After lunch came out guitar and piano and the chef came out to sing. Everyone joined in for the refrains. We thought we were dreaming, such a wonderful day! On the way home we were driven through the village to the raiway station .Make sure you book in advance , Alfredo will answer all your questions. Would do it again ! Thank you so much!…
