Twilight Local Food Tastings and Hidden Places Tour
Was a nice way to end our trip
Pier was super chill, fun and professional. He's also knowledgeable and passionate about Frascati/Castelli Romani. We liked him a lot. My husband and I also really liked the tour. It was a quick ride into the Termini Station from the city center of Rome, then 20 mins via a very quiet, clean train to Frascati. It's completely different than Rome. It's very serene and little to no tourists. Its also very, very beautiful. The tour starts off a little slow at a Church but I must say, the wine that can be purchased there that's made by the Monks, is the best wine ever. It's literally only 3.50 euros also. I wish we grabbed more!!! Be sure to get some and support the smaller towns that have a hard time competing with the big city, Rome. After Frascati, we drove to Castelli Romani which was my fave. Very beautiful!! My hubs and I are already planning to return and stay there. We stopped at several local places, which we loved. We tried so many foods we usually wouldn't and loved all of it. We went home with most of it, along with more vino! We ended at my favorite place of all which was lunch at an old farmhouse winery. It was a true, true Italian experience. It was beautiful and we learned how to be pro winers. We had a wonderful meat and cheese platter and several free wines to compliment the food. The pasta was to die for. Everyone was great to us and we loved their dog!!!! It was just what the doctor ordered after a busy busy stay in Crazy Rome! Thank you Pier!!!!!! We loved it and won't forget it!!
Day Trip to the Beautiful Castelli Romani
Great tour, go for it!
We booked a last minute tour to Castelli Romani and Pier accommodated us in a friendly manner. The communication was smooth and he made us feel welcomed. He customed the tour according to our desire: more walking, time for photos. We spent more than 3hours but he did not mind at all.
We saw beautiful villages from this area, an unique church, Pope's summer house, amazing views over the lakes, we had a coffee and delicious strwaberries.
He was really nice showing us Frascati, his home town( best pizza place, the oldest city oven). He took time to have lunch with us even that was not part of the schedule.
After the tour communication and recommendation with other nice places were much appreciated.
Definitely recommended tour!
Pier, many thanks!
Day Trip to the Beautiful Castelli Romani
A peaceful place.
We did this on our last day in Rome and it was the perfect way to finish off our time in Rome. Pier shows you around and explains the history of it. It did not feel like a tour guide it was more like a friend showing us around. He even took us right to our train stop and was patient and calm. I really loved this tour and I highly recommend anyone who wants to do it. You see so much and the process of getting to frascati is so easy and coming back is easy too because Pier explains everything well. I loved it and it was a great way to finish by time in Rome.
Day Trip to the Beautiful Castelli Romani
A relax getaway from the historic center of Rome
Frascati is just 30min from Rome by train, but you are transported to a serene, fresh and beautiful area. We were lucky to have Pier showing us the area in his charming Mercedes. The sights were wonderful: lake Nemi and its ships, the summer residence of the Pope, and the lazy Frascati cats. Pier brought us to a nice place to relax with some wine, cheese and bread with olive oil and black truffle. Pier is not just a guide, but like a friend showing you around when you visit.
Day Trip to the Beautiful Castelli Romani
Great tour, Great day
As a tour guide I always know what to expect from other guides ,but Pier was nice surprise .I travelled in Rome with my friend and I think that we started to explore Rome it's history, it's wine and it's delicious food when we met Pier- Local guide in Rome. He is very . Flexible , helpful ,passionate and enthusiastic, he loves his city and knows the history . Also knows all the local places where you can find not typical souvenirs and taste wine and pasta. Highly recommend
Day Trip to the Beautiful Castelli Romani
WOW...CUISINE AND CULTURE AT ITS BEST
Max and his wife entertained us for hours with excellent food, wine and lots of great insights pertaining to Rome and it's culture. Six course meal was so wonderful , very tasty and beautifully presented. This was an unforgettable experience to take back home to the United States complete with pictures. Max picked us up from the hotel and delivered us safely so we would not get lost.
THANK YOU, PHYLIS AND MARY
Italian Dinner at Max’s place in Rome
Best tour ever!
We looked for something unique, not just a tour of the Colosseum and the normal stuff that everyone sees. It was the best tour we took part in. The guide was unbelievable, with knowledge that doesn't end. He is a true Roman and you can tell he loves his town. He also speaks English fluently, and it is easy to understand him. We ended the tour in the BEST caffe in rome! I would have never come across this bar without our guide!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Crime tour of Rome
Just stunning
Pier was a wonderful tour guide. My husband and I loved every moment of this special tour of Castelli Romani and the villages around. We have made a pact to come back to Italy to stay near lake albano. The villages the food the wine the views. In a word just stunning. Pier made it so special too taking us to a very historic taverna and tasting the frascati. It was all so lovely. Do yourself a favour and do this tour!
Day Trip to the Beautiful Castelli Romani
Fantastic day out
Pierre was a great guy who was really informative about the area. The trip gave us a different perspective on Rome and was the highlight of our first time trip to Rome. The visit to the farmhouse vineyard was the icing on the cake and comes highly recommended. Booking was easy and Pierre kept us up to date right up to the day of the trip as well as providing directions and info about train times.
Day Trip to the Beautiful Castelli Romani
Michele was great!
I took this tour on my last night in Rome and I think it was a really cool way to end my time in the city. Michele was my guide and he was very informative and explained the crime events that took place really well, with a lot of detail and passion. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting the city as it gives a different perspective of Rome. I loved every moment of it!

Immersive and relax
Since it was our last day in Italy, it was the nicest way to visit those beautiful villages. Pierpaolo is nice and speaks a really good french! He will bring you in some cute alleys, throught the history of this region. At some time, we had the feeling that we were really enjoying the italian life, at its best. My mom and I totally recommand this tour.

Our tour guide Mike was awesome! He was so knowledgeable about the history behind these dark happenings and his method of storytelling was captivating! Being my second trip to Rome, I was insearch of the unconventional. This was it!
If you are thinking about doing this tour, DO IT. You won't be disappointed!
Crime tour of Rome
Interesting and informative
We had already spent a week in Rome seeing all of the “headline” sites. This tour was a fantastic end to the trip — a great walking tour through some less known sites and some that we had seen but with new perspective on the events that happened there. I would highly recommend it.
Crime tour of Rome
Great Tour
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the colosseum and surrounding area. Our guide was very knowledgeable and very attentive to the group needs. She took her time and made sure that there were opportunities for pictures and for breaks.

Overall an excellent experience.
