Great experience with Pier!
You will absolutely love this little excursion away from the big city. It is a beautiful area and Pier was so friendly and warm. We went to several little villages and loved each one. Pier even suggested lunch at a lovely wine farmhouse which was amazing. It was great to have a local show us around and we had a great time! Thank you, Pier!!!

Dinner was wonderful!
We had dinner last night with Francesca! She was absolutely a pleasure and the food was unbelievable. It is a bit far from the city but such a unique experience that it was well worth it. Her place is so tiny and quaint and my husband, two teens also loved it. My daughter is a vegetarian and she carefully made sure each plate she served worked for her. Get out of the city and enjoy this experience. Thank you, Francesca!

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

Criminal tour of Rome
This is a wonderful way to see parts of the City. Fiona is extremely knowledgeable, full of enthusiasm and gave us a series of real stories at various sites of political murders, ancient Roman intrigue, and high society manipulation . You will also be shown interesting bits of architecture and historical snippets along the way. It isn't so much criminals, and should maybe named Martyrs and Murders. Great fun way to see the city from a different angle.

Could have eaten in Rome
Nice food, plenty of decent wine, polite host.
For most is an 60 minutes tour with a bus from Rome center. We took a taxi costing 30 euro. Back it was 25 Euro.
Dinner with wine cost 37 Euro.
But I can't see the idea. Small apartment with no personal touch, shabby table and .... Just no personal touch and local touch to justified the time and expense. Host was nice and polite, however a bit tired.

She did not have a clue.
This was the worst art gallery tour we have ever had. Our tour guide, Francesca, did not have a clue about the subject matter. She neither knew the art that was presented nor the galleries nor the context. She limited her role to taking us to five addresses and suggesting that we look around.

On top, while we booked the tour for 5 pm, she deferred to 5.15, and eventually got there at 5.25 pm. She promised to send us a list of the galleries we had seen but never did. A disappointing experience.

Great night!
Francesca was wonderful, food was great and we really enjoyed ourselves. Just a long taxi to her parents’ home because we had too many people for her to accommodate in her apartment. But her parents were lovely so worth the trip!

Francesca is lovely!!
we ate at Francesca's place on September 27, 2018 with my wife and our cousin. It was a long day and we got a bit lost on our way there and as a result, got there one hour later than planned. However, Francesca and her boyfriend Simona were patient and waited for us to complete the cooking. Upon our arrival, the conversation was pleasant and flowing. Appetizers were good and they catered to my cousin who does not eat pork. The wine was more than adequate and both Francesca and her boyfriend engaged us throughout, including providing explicit directions back to central Rome. For those staying in and around central Rome/Vatican City, be aware that adequate time should be planned to get there if going by train and bus. I would recommend this to my friends and family, especially those into home cooked meals. It was lovely after being in Italy for two weeks to get actual home cooked food straight to your plate. I think the genuineness of the host and hostess was our favorite part in addition to the food.

Best Experience Ever!
My daughter and I couldn’t be happier with our experience with this studio. Both mosaicists were extremely knowledgeable and helpful in educating us about the history of mosaics and their construction. More than that, both were wonderfully warm, caring, engaging people who clearly love what they do. We took the 2 hour class but had such a good time we’ll plan to take their 4 day class the next time we’re in Rome. As a side note, they made an exception for my daughter, who is 6, as their classes are usually for older children. Both artists were so patient with her that she’s hooked on making mosaics!
Ancient Mosaic-Making Workshop in Rome
Not what I expected
Location is far away from Rome center and was difficult to find a place. We were 16 people ! Like at restaurant and couldn't feel home atmosphere.
Apart of this, menu was as at every corner - mozzarella with dried tomato, lasagna and tiramisu. The main dishes was very simple and small I really expected something from reach Italian cuisine, unfortunately no.

Fantastic experience - Highly recommended
I've visited Rome a few times so I was seeking a more local experience so chose this tour. Other friends were arriving into Rome so in the end we were 6 (mid age) women. Nicola our guide could not have been more accommodating, apart from the murals we also wanted to stop and sample some food/wine along our route so he happily incorporated this too into our ride. What we all really loved was exploring another side of Rome away from the tourists and the classic must sees, on this tour we visited exciting and quaint neighbourhoods and saw how the local folk really live and some really fantastic murals! Nicola was informative and we learnt some great information too. Nicola is really easy- going and wants you to have a great experience and each of us, regardless of our cycling skills (from near none to a tri-athlete) had a fantastic time. Do yourself a favor and book this tour, you won't regret it.
Giant murals and alternative Rome by bicycle
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!
Criminal tour of Rome
Fantastic! Highly recommend!
Francesca was so hospitable and super enthusiastic about hosting a dinner. As we were a small group, we also had additional guests present. She made all of us feel welcomed! There was no uncomfortableness whatsoever which is usually present when you meet someone for the first time.
The food itself was so delicious, we had 4 courses, and I was literally full after an appetizer. So please come to Francesca very hungry, as portions are huge! The tmosphete was that of a big family gathering for a nice Sunday meal. I highly recommend everyone to book this dinner. Francesca was also very nice to hail us a taxi when our uber failed to show up after 40 minutes of waiting.

Off the Beaten Path Food & Wine Walking Tour in Rome
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!!

Do yourself a favor and book this experiance
My wife and I had a wonderful evening spending time with our amazing cook and hostess, Francesca. The food was incredible, the conversation flowed nicely and the genuine warmth we felt from Francesca made for an event we will always cherish and never forget.

PS. If she asks if you like surprises, say yes!

Evenings in Rome are wonderful
Thank you to Pier for being a great guide. It was our first night in Rome and he truly helped us get the lay of the area. The follow on days were so easy to navigate having spent time with him walking around the city.
Magical Tour of Rome by Night
Max was delightful
We had a great time with Max enjoying a home cooked meal and nice conversation. This was a very different experience that we took a chance on, and it paid off. If you are in Rome and want something unique to do - have dinner with Max!

lovely break in beautiful setting
How wonderful to see a different side of Italy to the busy touristy places of Rome. Pier showed us some picturesque towns and the amazing lake. He was easy to talk to and we had a lovely trip. He communicated well over whattsapp with us to make the collection arrangements. lovely few hours away from the heat, madness and mayhem of Rome.
