The ultimate Extra-Virgin Olive Oil experience

The Italian Region is known Worldwide, for the vast amount of goods this fertile land delivers. Needless to say, Italy’s at the top of the chart when it comes to production of great wines, cheeses and other local specialties. But there is one product, that wins it all. The one and only Extra-Virgin Olive Oil, or EVO, only Italian olive groves can harvest. During your Italian Vacation, we will take you to discover the secrets of the Olive Oil Experience. Your private tour driver will welcome you at your hotel in Rome, at approximately 8:30am.

From there you will head to the Tuscia Region of Viterbo, the heart of Norther Latium. This part of the region is a multicolored weave of different landscapes and quaint villages and mesmerizing features. Joint by one common thread: Harvest, agriculture and EVO production. Not all know, that the Northern locations of Latium are the major Italian Olive oil producers, even before the neighboring Tuscan Region.

To make this experience as intriguing as possible, before a full insight on Olive Oil, we will arrange a visit to one of the Ancient villages in the area. You can choose between the Village of Caprarola, a small village located on the Volcanic hills of the Cimini hills, most famous for the reinassance  Villa Farnese, or  a stop in Sutri , known for the famous ancient Roman Amphitheatre, carved in tuff sediments and a very well preserved and fascinating Etruscan Necropolis.
The choice is yours!

Your next location will be an olive-mill, in Vetralla, another small, quaint Etruscan village in the region. Immersed in the Countryside, where hills turn silver from the reflections of the olive groves. You’ll meet the owner, and your EVO Experience will start.

This World Famous product has an incredible background.

Visit the Groves, where centenary Olive trees salute you, swinging in the wind. You will learn about the harvesting process and hear all about the next step in oil making, as you’ll head to the mill. This is where the farmers collect the crops. Where the final product is created.
They call it the “green gold”, because of its tremendous value, and for what it represents in the lives of so many, from farm to table.

Speaking of which, you can’t leave without a private tasting. In fact, the next step in the itinerary is a private Extra Virgin Olive Oil tasting.
You’ll hear fantastic explanations on how to pair this product with the perfect dish, how to use it in the kitchen, and enjoy the different flavors of a selection of olive oils, with local bruschettas or appetizers. Finally, at the end of this wonderful experience, you’ll find out that EVO is not just a dressing. It tells a story.

Before heading back to Rome, your tour driver will make some restaurant recommendations, for a delicious lunch. Take a moment to relax and unwind, this land has so much to offer, from amazing landscapes to fine living and great culinary traditions. We’d be also happy to arrange your lunch in an oil farm, for the ultimate Evo experience. (Lunch price not included, as it will depend on the olive farm you’ll be visiting).
