A Recent Review of this tour

This was our last tour in Rome, all with Dino. Wow! Castelli Romani was an incredible experience. We stopped in several small towns, had the best lunch of our 5 days in Rome, and the scenery was breathtaking, peaceful and beautiful. We can't wait to get back and visit this area again. Dino is a "walking enciclopedia", full of energy and ready to share his knowledge of Rome and nearby towns. He is outstanding and will do. Anything extra to make your day perfect. A Must Tour!
