“A great team!”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Ettore and Sarah are EXTREMELY knowledgeable about all things Italy- history, food, wine, culture, etc etc. Both past and present. We could listen to them talk for hours and hours and never get bored. They filled our minds and our hearts on a recent 12 day trip to Rome and the countryside and we haven't stopped talking about them since. We took 3 tours with the team during our stay and recommend them VERY highly. Their attention to detail and customizing your experience has yet to be matched after several trips to Italy. Thanks!

“Wine tour and tasting”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Incredible afternoon with Antiqua Tours in Frascati. This was my first experience travelling outside the walls of rome and I was absolutely amazed at first by the hilly picturesque landscape of Frascati. The history that is intertwined with this winery is interesting as well since it uses an old roman aqueduct as the location for the aging. Our tour guide Ettore was extremely informative and knowledge of the wine producing in Lazio. Next the actual tasting took place where we tasted 4 wines, including frascati, syrah, cabernet sauvignon and a passito. Also to go along with these great wines (the frascati being my favorite) we tasted the olive oil. Overall it was a great trip and i would recommend it to anyone even partially interested in wine.

“Awesome wine tour in Frascati”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

This group tour to Frascati was an overall wonderful experience. Our guide, Ettore, was extremely knowledgable and personable and covered the whole process of winemaking- we saw everything from the grapes on the vines out in the vineyard, to an ancient aqueduct, and even got to taste some of the products with the winemaker. This is something that I would suggest to anyone looking to have a very genuine wine culture experience. If I ever get the chance to visit a vineyard again I would choose to go with Antiqua Tours every time.

“Great winery visit in Castelli Romani!”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Wonderful group day trip to Frascati with Antiqua Tours. Ettore, our tour guide had so much knowledge and could answer any questions we had. We were able to see the vineyard (still learned a lot of interesting things even though there wasn't much action in February). We also went down into the ancient aqueduct where the wine is stored. We then went down the road to taste some of the wines. The owner of the winery (the DOCG representative for the region) even spoke to us. We tasted four different wines and got to taste the passito!

Overall, it was an amazing day. I recommend this tour to anybody looking for a winery visit from Rome.

“Amazing wine tour!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

The group tour in Frascati was so enjoyable. It was very personable and was a great experience. We were given a complete lesson on how the wine is made from beginning to end by our tour guide, Ettore. He was great. We tasted four different wines and they were all delicious! I would recommend this wine tour to anyone that is looking for a special trip.
