What you'll do

We'll meet at the Frascati train station at 4:24 PM (when the 3:54 PM train gets in from Roma Termini) and I will show you the most beautiful, authentic, and quintessential sites in Frascati.

Visit one of the last wood-burning ovens in Frascati, here you will see the chestnut branches used in the oven and smell the delicious smoky aroma that fills the piazza. Taste the bakery's wine cookies dipped in their house wine and chat with the 94 year-old baker Nonna Rosanna.

Enjoy the fresh air, cool breeze and beautiful view of Rome in the distance.

Walk over to Claudio's hole-in-the-wall pizzeria and learn about the five ingredients are all you need to make pizza dough from scratch.

Our master Pizzaiolo is passionate about his craft and wants to teach you how to make a pizza here in Frascati with a recipe you can remake back home for your friends.

Our Pizza Maestro will teach you how to kneed the dough, how to stretch and flatten the dough, and which topping to use for authentic Frascati pizza. You will also learn how to put it into the wood burning oven.

When your pizza is ready, you will eat it paired with local seasonal vegetables, Roman pasta and more!

While you enjoy your pizza you’ll learn about three local wines from your host who is an ONAV licensed wine taster. You will taste Frascati Superiore DOCG, Red Vagnolo IGT and Sweet Wine followed by limoncello & grappa!
Other things to note
There is a lot of food & wine involved in this experience (try to have a light lunch;). We also have wonderful, fresh & seasonal vegetarian alternatives!

Our Pizza Making and Wine Tasting experience in Frascati has been unforgettable. We first met with Giovanna, our local professional guide and a wonderful and welcoming person. She led us to many different historical and cultural places of Frascati while telling us the different stories behind them as she did for the Villa Aldobrandini or the old wood-burning oven Ceralli where we tasted some delicious biscuits and local wine. She has been friendly and professional at the same time: without her, our experience would not have been the same. After the tour, we went to a beautiful family-run restaurant and we ate different gastronomic specialities while drinking the delicious DOCG white and red wine (Controlled and Guaranteed Denomination of Origin). Here we learned how to make the real Italian Piazza starting from the dough and finishing with the wood-fired oven cooking. I recommend to everyone who wants to spend a special day surrounded by genuine Italian food, delicious wine, special people and historical gemstones to try this experience!

I signed my parents and I up for this tour and we all really enjoyed it. Our tour guide, Giovanna, gave us a nice tour of Frascati and gave us a great sense of the town’s history and every day life. We got to see the historic center and stopped by a delicious traditional bakery. After that, we headed to the pizza making class. It was really fun to try and make our own pizzas, and Claudio was very friendly and had lots of patience as we struggled with using the proper techniques. :) We are a ton of delicious food and drank some great local wines and came back to Rome completely stuffed! Definitely recommend this to others who want to do a good class and get outside Rome and get a sense of culture and life in a smaller Italian town.

This was a side trip booked by my son and Dtr in law. I wish I had the time to go back to Frascati to spend more time. The pizza making class was informative, hands on and so much fun. Claudio, his wife and our tour guide made it an evening to remember.
