Description

Indulge in an exclusive food and wine tasting experience at a Roman cistern dating back to the 1st century AD. Choose from a range of tasting options at 11:00 AM, 1:00 PM, 3:00 PM, 5:00 PM, or 7:00 PM, ensuring you can fit this unique experience into your vacation schedule. Begin your journey at a secret wine cellar nestled in the heart of Rome's Trastevere district. Delight in traditional Italian delicacies expertly paired with a selection of excellent wines, all while receiving insightful commentary from our knowledgeable staff. Stimulate your taste buds as you learn the art of culinary pairings with fine wines in a welcoming, rich-in-history environment. Relish in the authenticity of seasonal products, each one recognized by Presidia, an organization that champions small-scale food productions to protect traditional and artisanal products that are at risk of disappearing. Embark on a tasting journey that spans from the North to the South, a true culinary exploration of Italy. Try products like DOP gorgonzola, Taggiasca olives, DOP Parma ham, Parmigiana Reggiano, cured pork fat, DOP Bolognese mortadella, salami from the Marche, DOP Tuscan “sciocco” bread, Amatrice bacon, and Veroli PGI bread. Sink your teeth into Roman focaccia, buffalo mozzarella from Campania, Moliterno PGI pecorino, provolone del Monaco PDO, Podolica beef, and PGI Crusco pepper. Before or after your tasting journey, enjoy a hop-on hop-off cruise that stops at Isola Tiberina ( on the Lungotevere Degli Anguillara side), the Angelo Bridge ( on the Lungotevere Tor Di Nona side), the Justice Palace (on the Lungotevere Marzio), and the Popolo Square (on the Lungotevere in Augusta). Cross through the historic center of Rome and take in iconic sights and historic monuments from the water. Snap photos of the Castel Sant'Angelo, St. Peter's Basilica, Justice Palace, and the Basilica del Sacro Cuore. See and stop at Tiber Island, pass by the church of San Giovanni Dei Fiorentini and the Fontanone del Gianicolo. Glide under bridges like the Ponte Sant'Angelo, the Ponte Umberto I, the Ponte Vittorio Emanuele II, the Ponte Principe Amedeo, the Ponte Giuseppe Mazzini, the Ponte Sisto, the Ponte Garibaldi, and the Roman bridges Ponte Cestio and Ponte Fabricio. You can take the boat to and from the tasting experience, just 700 meters from the Tiber Island stop. Going to Piazza di Ponte Sant'Angelo and taking the riverboat would be best. (Take advantage of the 24-hour open tickets for your boat cruise). For the river cruise, board the boat at S. Angelo Bridge. Go down the stairs to the pier and show the staff your voucher. In about 45/60 minutes of navigation, you will arrive at the Isola Tiberina pier. Get off the River Boat and reach Fabullus Wine Cellar, Via dell'Arco di San Calisto, 19, a 10-minute walk away.
