If you are interested in ancient Rome and enjoy wines that have over 20 centuries of documented history, join us on this fascinating full-day private tour to Aquileia, the most important archaeological site in northern Italy and capital of one of Friuli's premier DOC wine districts!

This great day out is a perfect combination of culture and oeno-gastronomy as it allows you to explore a land known for its refined cuisine and prestigious wines and step back in time to relive the fascinating history of the so-called "Second Rome", walking through remains of ancient ruins, precious treasures and listening to intriguing legends. The tour starts in the morning with a visit to the magnificent archaeological site of Aquileia in the company of your guide who will bring this ancient Roman metropolis alive for you.

You'll visit the forum, remains of public baths and private houses, Roman roads with visible chariot tracks and the ancient Basilica which hosts stunning Byzantine frescoes and one of the largest and most spectacular early-Christian mosaic floors of the West! Lunch in a typical agro-tourism of the area with appetizers and samplings of local delicacies such as salami, San Daniele ham, Montasio cheese and a typical Friulian dessert.

In the afternoon you will visit a leading estate of the Aquileia D.O.C wine area producing award winning red and white wines. You'll meet the winemaker, share his knowledge about the wine-making process and take a tour of the plant and cellars before enjoying the taste of a good vintage and eventually bring a few bottles home!
