Overview

Discover Frascati, the pearl of the ancient wine-producing area of the Castelli Romani! Experience a taste of everyday life in this laidback locale with its unique mix of countryside living + small town sophistication. Take a traditional evening “passagiata” (stroll) through the historic center stopping to sample typical specialties and meet the high-spirited proprietors. Sip local wines & savor more than 10 taste samples: from savory & sweet baked items, a selection of fried delicacies, to artisanal gelato. Book this tour at the start of your Frascati visit & I promise that you will never have to take a wrong bite while here!

ABOUT ME: Residing in Frascati since 2002, I am a food/wine-obsessed American married to a like-minded Roman. From the women in my Italian family, I was introduced to the finest local purveyors who offer the highest quality products. I am not a traditional or history-focused tour guide; what I am is a passionate curator of gastronomic experiences. Come join me!

The top of the garden in the villa has remained derelict and damaged since the American bombing during the Allied invasion in World War II.
