Type of Service: Trastevere stroll with Exclusive Private Dinner at a Villa
Quaint, charming and truly authentic, you will begin your evening with a leisurely stroll through the narrow streets of Trastevere. The neighborhood’s name translates to “beyond the Tiber,” and is, without a doubt, one of Rome’s most famous and characteristic areas.
After you’ve soaked up the atmosphere, you’ll enjoy an exclusive dinner in a private 17th-century villa. Here in the heart of this picturesque neighborhood, sitting in a gorgeous garden you’ve ever seen, you will enjoy a genuine, regional Italian 4-course meal paired perfectly with wine.
You’ll first meet your expert, local English-speaking guide in one of the city's most famous squares. This area is known as the beating heart of Rome, one of the most ancient and beloved quarters of the Eternal City. As your guide escorts you through the hidden alleys and narrow streets, you’ll be as enchanted by what you see as by what you hear and learn the history, culture, and stories only a local would know. You'll even be able to imagine yourself living in Trastevere as its secrets come to life before you. Look above at the charming homes and private terraces and soak in everything there is to see during your stroll.
On to the lesser known and less crowded section of town, whereupon an almost hidden street you’ll be invited into a spectacular private residence. Only the most privileged enter this villa. Its beauty will leave you speechless and be knowing that this family still lives here may leave you a little envious. But imagine how coveted your experience will be by those back home and even by other tourists in Rome who did not have this exclusive opportunity. Reserved for select groups of 15 people or fewer, it is a truly remarkable, intimate experience that cannot be rivaled elsewhere. Upon your arrival, you will be welcomed by the chef. The villa’s warm atmosphere will immediately make you feel like you’re part of the family. Seated in the charming garden, your taste buds will be treated to an authentic four-course Italian dinner, accompanied perfectly with wine. Your chef will delight you with his regional cuisine of the freshest and highest-quality ingredients, not to mention his commentary. This is a culinary quest not to be missed.
