Wine Tasting Inside Piscine Romane

The Piscine Romane/Cisterne Romane/ Roman cisterns are located in the city of Fermo in Le Marche. If you’re in the area, you should not miss visiting this marvelous engineering sight. Thanks to the Mayor of Fermo, DiscoverMarche and the lovely hosts from Vigneti Santa Liberata, I had a specially curated wine tasting inside Piscine Romane.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wine Tasting Inside Piscine Romane

The Piscine Romane form part of a huge underground archaeological complex. Located just below the main piazza of Fermo, they were built by the Romans around 1st century A.D.

Piscine Romane were built with mind blowing engineering details that makes it possible to use them even today! 

Along with my friends from Marche, I walked with a glass of wine in my hand completely in awe of how the Romans built structures. The dimly lit underground area was super cold but I felt fortunate to be able to stand on the commendable marvel of the Romans!

These perfectly preserved cisterns are worth visiting. I am unable to fathom the time, resources and brains that went into making them.

SALUTE to the ROMANS!  What an experience!

Important Info:

  • The entry to the Piscine Romane costs a mere €6,50 which includes a guided tour + entries to parts of Palazzo dei Priori, Teatro dell’Aquila and Scientific Museums of Villa Vitali.
  • A jacket is highly recommended when visiting the complex as it is extremely cold.

    Wow, how awesome to tour and taste wine while down there. The engineering of ancient Rome never cease to amaze me. When you think about what they did, how they did it, and how they have stood the test of time…just incredible! Oh, and to have some good red wine…that’s awesome too! 🙂

    What a fascinating place. It looks like you had a great time. I love places with so much history and wonder what stories the walls could tell.

    What an interesting tour, thank you for sharing. Ishita, I am not sure if you realize that I also import Italian wines into the USA under the name Girasole Imports. You can learn a bit more about what i do from our website, IG or Facebook pages. This would be a wonderful place to explore, perhaps after Vinitaly in April.
