Rome (Civitavecchia) Culinary tour Excursion Reviews
Taste of Italy tour was really lovely. We made pasta in the Rome countryside at a Farmhouse restaurant and had a lovely 3 course lunch with wine. Very well done. We later got to go into Rome proper and see the major sites from our bus which was fine since we had done all the Rome things before. We had a horrible bus with NO shocks and the seats were meant for children not adults. We all had bruises on our behinds from the seatbelt fixtures poking us for 6 hours. Other than the bus it was lovely.
This was a olive oil tasting. The tour did not match the description at all. We stopped in a little town for 45 minutes where we walked around. Then we headed to a farm where we had less than a 5 minute exp,a nation of olive oil. We then went to the farmhouse where we were given a piece of stale bread with olive oil, a little pasta, and some cheese, along with a glass of wine. The name of this excursion implied we would trying different types of olive oil. There was nothing informative or exciting about this tour.
