Live the dream of all wine lovers and join us on an amazing wine tasting evening event, where you get to know Italy through its wine and food culture during this gourmet tasting experience in Rome.
This unique experience provides a delicious opportunity to gain insights into Italy’s long winemaking heritage from your sommelier guide. After meeting in a traditional Roman Enoteca (Wine Bar), you will be delighted by this authentic place with its wooden booths and wide antique shop counter.
Get to try some of the carefully selected wines, produced by prestigious and emerging wineries, as your sommelier shares information about Italian wine and how it fits into the country’s beloved culture.
During your tasting session, you’ll enjoy samples of antique local white- and red grape varieties, including vino Bellone, noted for its riper aromas of Asian pear and papaya with grilled, spicy notes, Trebbiano or Malvasia puntinata (as in whites) & vino Nero Buono, cultivated on the hills of the small-town Cori, – or vino Cesanese, with its rustic flavors of wild game and iron pan (as in reds).
Each wine is paired with Italian appetisers, such as Roman ricotta cheese (ricotta romano), other typical salty hard cheeses from the Lazio region, premium salumi and a flavourful selection of high quality hams and porchetta, a spit-roasted pig, stuffed with wild herbs.
Expand your wine knowledge while you sip and eat, as after the introduction on wine production areas, you will dive into further details and learn about the process of winemaking, which will allow you distinguish the different flavours and aromas as well as experiencing how food enhances certain aspects and tastes of the wines.

"Vatican Museum Tour"
We made our way towards the Vatican museum ticket office and luckily bumped into a very nice Spanish guy who suggested this company. Maya tours were absolutely brilliant. Our tour guide was Lebanese and was very knowledgable and funny. He made sure all the 20 people in our tour got the best out of the visit and his explanation of the history behind how the Vatican came to be and Michael Angelo’s Sistine chapel made us appreciate what we were looking at so much more than if we had just bought a ticket. The tour lasted about two and a half hours. Definately recommend this company.
"Worth every cent for Vatican Tour"
Our family of eight visited the Vatican during late December. The lines were hours long and we decided to join a Maya Tour. It was worth the cost in every way: we skipped the horrific lines and learned a great deal from our guide Deborah. The headsets allowed us to hear Deborah while looking somewhat independently during the tour. The tour group was huge — at least fifty, but Deborah was knowledgable and kept the tour interesting and snappy to young and old alike for several hours. Comments directed at a family accused of being gypsy pickpockets were a shock and the accuracy of the accusations is unknown. You might say this set the tone for theft and taking whatever one pleased as we learned about the history of the Vatican. Watch your pockets, indeed!
"Excellent tour of the Collosseum, Palatino and Roman Forum "
We started under a “meteorological bomb” aka lots of rain, but our guide Diego, had so much information and was so full of energy that we stick to it and did not regret it. Booking a tour is 100% worth it as you skipped all the lines, you are given a headphones and can hear the guide perfectly , even if you fall a bit behind or look at other things while listening.
I am 100% convinced that we got much more with being with a guide _ as an historian I usually do the reading myself and/or take the audio guide, but this skipping the line make the extra $ worth.
"Best guided tour that i ever had!"
In a few words, we had the luck to find a guide very passionate about his job. A person with tons of information about cultures, religion, history and arts. His name is Ribal Abighanem. He explained, in detail, every single piece of art or history that we’ve meet along the Vatican tour. It was really a celebration of culture!
Thanks to Gabriel our tour guide we had an amazing experience at the Vatican! Was so helpful, kind with a very good English. Thank you Mayan Tours for this opportunity!!
