Let us introduce you to the secrets of our own town! Zagarolo is not your ordinary medieval village. It has a toy museum, a tunnel filled with street art, a weekly farmer’s market, churches with architectural and historical significance plus other hidden surprises. After murdering someone in Rome, painter Caravaggio exiled himself in the palace Palazzo Rospigliosi and created multiple masterpieces. Discover for yourself why people draw inspiration from Zagarolo and the surrounding areas.


We believe the best way to experience Italian culture is with your taste buds and your stomach! We’d be delighted to share some of the secrets of rustic Italian cooking with you during a cooking class here in the countryside of Rome.

Our most popular cooking class is a full Italian meal, with a practical focus on how to organize your ingredients that you can easily replicate the recipes when you return home.

However, we can tailor a class to your wishes and skill level. For example, perhaps you’d rather learn how to make homemade pizza in our wood-fired brick oven.


Wine Tasting

Zagarolo is actually located within one of Italy’s lesser-known wine regions. We’ll take you to a nearby vineyard where you can taste several local wines. You might not be familiar with these grape varieties, but discovering new wines is a delightful way to spend an afternoon!

Olive Oil Tasting

Hundreds of varieties of olives exist in Italy, and each produces a specific aroma and flavor. During this excursion, you will sample olive oils from different regions in Italy. In addition to the tasting, you’ll learn more about the olive oil production process as well as cooking with olive oil and pairing it with foods.



Multiple hiking trails varying in length and difficulty exist near Olive Tree Hill.

We can make recommendations based on your wishes and also suggest nearby lunch spots!
