Follow your host on a fascinating day-tour back to the roots of Italian olive oil tradition.
You'll discover the enchanted Sabina region, just 30 km North of Rome, along with the secrets of one of the best olive oils in the world: the Sabina DOP (protected designation of origin). You’ll taste a variety of different olive oils and learn the difference between a mass-produced oil and a high-end product, what makes an olive oil great and what you need to know to pick a good olive oil from a bad one.
After that, you’ll move to the medieval village of Palombara Sabina and visit the breathtaking
Ulivone, as locals call one of the oldest and largest olive trees in Europe!
A delicious lunch at a traditional agriturismo will be the cherry on the cake of a spectacular experience.
On this private tour you'll get to visit the enchanted Sabina region, a pristine land just 30 km North of Rome. A perfect getaway from the crowds of the Eternal City to peacefully enjoy the rural side of Italy!
Your local host will guide you on a unique journey through unspoilt lands, where olive groves and oak woods stretch as far as the eye can see, embraced by the Apennine Mountains and scattered with picturesque medieval towns, castles and monasteries.
Ancient Romans planted their first olive trees in this region, where local farmers still proudly produce one of the best Extra Virgin Olive Oils (EVOOs) in Italy.
You'll have an exclusive opportunity to visit one of those farms and to discover the secrets of a local culinary gem: the Sabina DOP (Protected Designation of Origin).
After a special tasting of different varieties of EVOOs, you'll take a nice trip to the medieval village of Palombara Sabina, where you'll visit one of the oldest and largest olive trees in Europe: the monumental Ulivone (as locals call it).
After breathing in all this beauty, you'll enjoy a delicious meal at a local agriturismo (rural, traditional restaurant) with a tasting of local specialties, guided by your experienced host.
That's also the best way to learn something more about the different uses of the royalty of local products: the unique Sabina DOP olive oil.
The highlight of the day would be a free sample of olive oil to take back home with you to remember the flavors of this magical land (one bottle per group).
