A wonderful day in Castelli Romani
We had an amazing day trip with Pier - our local guide. Pier is a super nice guy, highly knowledge with a sea of information about the history of the region, the country and the local traditions. He loves his home - and his excitement is catchy.
We enjoyed the scenery, met beautiful people, tasted excellent wine and ate a delicious lunch in a local restaurant. It was nothing short of a perfect trip!

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!!!

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.
Criminal tour of Rome
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.
Unconventional Rome and giants murals 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!

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!!

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.

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.

A wonderful trip to Castelli Romani with Pier
Pier was a great guide and we had a wonderful trip visiting the many sights of the area. Pier was friendly and made the experience of visiting the local villages and the lovely scenery fun and very enjoyable. Would highly recommend this tour to experience a different side of Italy when visiting Rome.
Day Trip to the Beautiful Castelli Romani
Awesome Experience
Pier is an excellent tour guide and company. We joined the tour to Castelli Romani, we visited a few cities in the area, and enjoyed the beautiful volcano and lovely cities. The scenery is amazing.
What's more? Pier is knowledgeable and passionate, he knows Italy and the area so well that he brought us to local restaurants with "grandmother" favor, and we can enjoy the delicious local food (such as wines, mushrooms, home-made pasta and local strawberry desserts) that are not available in the cities. We enjoy the tour very much and would recommend it to everyone.
Day Trip to the Beautiful Castelli Romani
Most definitely magical!
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!

Stunning half-day trip to Castello Romani
Had such a wonderful trip with our guide Pier. He was friendly and knowledgeable, and took us around beautiful mountainous villages and the town Frascati. Would highly recommend this trip to all. It is perfect if you want to get out of Rome for a while.
Day Trip to the Beautiful Castelli Romani
Wonderful.
Day Trip to the Beautiful Castelli Romani
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,
Magical Tour of Rome by Night
The perfect magical tour!
We traveled through Europe for 2 weeks and ended it in Rome. We went on over 7 tours during our time in Italy and none of them were nearly as good as Pier’s Night Tour. He really made our last night in Rome Magical. He went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed ourselves.
Seeing Rome during the day is nice but seeing it at night is something so different and magical. Pier was the perfect tour guide who made you feel like we were friends visiting each other and showing us around his city.
I promise you, you won’t regret taking the Night Tour with Pier. In my option he should be charging a lot more for his service, he was that good!
Magical Tour of Rome by Night
wonderful time in castelle romani with Pier
Pier met us at the train in Frascati and took us to several villages. He was in no big hurry. He was fun. We ended up going several hours past our official tour time because we stopped along the way to enjoy the villages, the fresh air, the beautiful scenery and people and fabulous food. Highly highly recommended!!
Day Trip to the Beautiful Castelli Romani
Great Tour of Rome by Night
Pier met us promptly at the meeting point and provided a tour of Rome which one can not see during the day. We visited many places where the larger tourist crowds would not go or did not know about. Pier provided a wealth of history, during our tour, and suggestions regarding additional activities, food, and more. We had the opportunity to take many photographs and it was evident that touring guests, at night, was a passion for Pier. If you want to see a different and "Magical" side of Rome, take this tour!!!!
