Know More about this tour

Your lunch or dinner experience begins at the banquet venue, located near the Pompeii archaeological site, where you'll meet your local host.

The menu introduces you to the types of food and wine enjoyed by Julius Caesar and his fellow Ancient Romans and was prepared using authentic recipes documented by Latin authors of the day, such as Columella, Apicius, and Pliny. Several courses are served so you can fully savor the array of different foods that were eaten 2,000 years ago, and, of course (as always in Italy), the wine will flow.

In addition to eating, this is also a learning experience. Listen to stories about the customs of a Roman banquet like this and the origins of the ingredients as each course is explained to you using rare photographs and a video presentation. This is a unique chance to experience the unusual flavors of Ancient Roman cuisine, some of which are very different to what you taste today.
