Food and drink

Sample Roman cuisine in all its forms at the Roman Festival. From roasts, Parthian chicken and Lucanian sausages made especially for the Roman festival to berry wine, mulsum (a type of mead) and Roman stews and moretum (garlic and herb cheese spread) – there's something for everyone!

Our knowledge of Roman cuisine stems from recipes and lists of ingredients that have been handed down and from burnt food remains, paintings and mosaics. It was characterised by daring combinations and elements of surprise! But one thing's for sure – the Romans were true gourmets.

Hot dogs, risotto or Flammkuchen are also available for those who prefer something more modern.

Please note that there is no ATM on the festival grounds. You can pay by card at the entrance and at the catering. At most of the market stalls you can only pay with cash.
