I recently attended a wine tasting Beppe e i suoi formaggi, in Roma. Everything about it was wonderful! The restaurant was very hospitable, Beppe himself was so friendly, the waiters were very knowledgeable, while the wine and cheeses were out of this world. During my tasting, I tried four wines. Two white, one red, and a passito wine. The wines were great. An experience like this was so important to try different wines and expand your palate. The overall selection of wines that I tried that night were very good. When pairing them with the cheeses they were even better. The cheeses were extraordinary. I tasted a creamy blu cheese, a type of goat cheese, and two types of cow cheese. The plate was beautifully decorated with walnuts, an amazing home made jam, and the tasty cheeses. The experience was wonderful. Sarah made it easy and fun to experience the wine pairing and tasting. The restaurant was wonderful the food and wine were even better. Overall the experience was so worth it! I recommend it 100%!

Exploring Rome or the Castelli Romani and Lazio countryside with Sarah and Ettore | Antiqua Tours is an absolut pleasure ánd must. We spent only two days in Rome, but thanks to their tour to Simoneta and Marco Carpineti we learned so much of Roman history, the connections with the surrounding towns and countryside etc.. And the suggestions they handed us for exploring Rome on our own were the best.

On the first morning of our stay we took the tour with Sarah. She told and showed us perfectly how the Romans get though they day with food and drinking. Worked perfect for us to get accustomed to the pace in Rome. We tried foods and went to shops we would never find ourselves. Sarah has a sparkling passion for wine and cheese, which we loved!
Thank you so much for taking us around the quieter places of Rome while tasting all these great foods and drinks, while learning about Rome!

Het was echt een geweldige tour, iedere cent waard. Lunch hebben we overgeslagen en we hadden meteen groot deel van de stad gezien. Sarah neemt je mee naar winkels waar de locals komen, kleine groepjes, zodat het geen invasie van toeristen wordt. Super!

Enjoyed a marvelous tour through this company of the Castelli Romani area outside Rome. We were treated to a great day, starting out in Rome, visiting a vineyard, enjoying a private wine tasting of the vineyards vintages and their olive oi...l, an authentic Roman style lunch, a visit to a wonderful museum housing remains of Caligula's pleasure ships found in Lake Nemo, a visit to a wonderful hill top midevil town where we sampled the best Strawberry cakes our mouths have ever encountered and a stroll along an ancient Latin road in the hills that led us to a wonderful view of two Castelli Romani lakes.
Ettore Bellardini and Sarah May Grunwald are great guides and very knowledgeable.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND this company while visiting Rome. From ancient history to culinary delights and wine sampling these are the folks you want to use.

If you really want to know all about Roman history, food and wines( or one of these subjects), you should definitely book their tours. We had a lovely and fun time, saw the most beautiful places in Lazio, which you"ll never manage to find on your one. Sarah and Ettore really love what they are doing and are incredible guides. Highly recommended!!
