Join me for an authentic countryside experience just a 20-minute train ride from Termini. This tour is for those who want to experience the Roman countryside and have a relaxing day – far from the noise of the big city.

I’ll meet you at Frascati station and drive you around the Castelli Romani area in my car.

First, we’ll visit Castel Gandolfo – a lovely town where the Pope has his summer residence.

Then we’ll go to beautiful Nemi. This town is special for many reasons! I’ll tell you all of the legends about it, and then we’ll head to Rocca di Papa, the highest town in the area and the best place to admire the landscape.

Afterwards, we’ll stop in Frascati for a walk and to taste the local wine directly from the producers. It’s also possible to stop for lunch at a famous old wine farmhouse in Frascati.

Note: If there’s four or fewer tour participants, we will travel in my car. For 5-8 participants, we will travel in a rented vehicle but that price is part of the tour fee so you will not pay extra.

Wonderful addition to our Rome trip
Very lovely and unique tour. Pier was funny and smart and shared wonderful information and details about the area. Would definitely recommend to a friend!
Highlight of our trip to Rome!
Our private tour with Pier was one of the highlights of our trip. Castelli Romani provided us a nice break from the heat and crowds in Rome. The area is absolutely beautiful and it’s hard to believe it’s just an easy half hour train ride from the hustle and bustle of Rome. Our guide, Pier was the best part of the trip! He is endearing and so knowledgeable about the area. We enjoyed the history he was able to share with us. The stops we made along the way in Castel Gandolfo, Nemi, and Frascati were all unique and picturesque. The little touches provided by Pier, such as a stop at a cafe in Nemi for a strawberry tart and cappuccino, were so appreciated. Just when we thought we were at the end of a perfect tour, Pier took us to one of only three taverns left in Frascati where we shared house-made wine while Pier sang Italian folk songs accompanied by his guitar. Book this tour today! You will not regret it!
Best trip ever - Castelli Romani
Pier is an amazing person and this visit was one of my highlights in Rome. Pier had really left a great impression. I was completely amazed at the beauty of Castelli Romani and Pier made this trip extremely memorable. Right from receiving us at the station to driving us to the quaint and amazingly beautiful villages and to giving me my first experience of a wineyard.. I have no words to stay but a big thanks to Pier. He was so much fun and knowledgeable about the area and best of all he was so humble. I would recommend others to visit Castelli Romani with Pier.
A perfect day in the Roman countryside
Pier was one of the nicest and most interesting people we met on our trip to Rome. It was a great break from the hustle of Rome and we had so much fun sharing the sites he loves. Castle Gandolfo was especially beautiful and we ended our trip with the loveliest lunch at a family-owned vineyard that made us feel we really belonged. Unforgettable. Grazie Pier!
Book this Tour!
I cannot say enough good things about this tour, the sites we visited, or Pier as a guide. This was one of the highlights of my family's 8 days in Rome. Pier is incredibly knowledgeable about the region, its history & culture, and in the end, Pier's just a likable guy to spend a few hours with learning about all the things you'll never read in any Rome Guidebook! Pier made this incredibly easy for my group of 8, with children aged 2 & 4. One of the things that impressed me the most was Pier's communication & follow up afterwards. In every way imaginable, this tour was AMAZING!

Most definitely magical!
for Pier’s tour (Magical Tour of Rome by Night)
During our 4 day trip to Rome, I wanted to give my 21yo niece visiting from Australia a unique experience in this amazing city, that went beyond the main sites we were visiting. Having Pier show us another side of his city on a beautiful summer evening as he shared his passion through colourful stories, did indeed make for a very magical tour of Rome by night. Highly recommended. Grazie mille Pier!
The first thing to do in Rome

Pier is a great guy, welcoming and friendly and will show you another personal and special side to Rome. If you do nothing else in Rome you must take his tour, you will see and learn so much and you finish like friends and feel special emotions from the places he takes you. Fantastic,
