"Castelli Romani Tour - The Best Day In and Around Rome I Have Ever Had"

14 apr 2016

By Paul D on Tripadvisor

Francesco is one of the happiest people I have ever met and his lust for life comes through in the way he runs his business.

It was a fantastic time, his operation is very sanitary (he is meticulous in keeping things like the helmets clean), his beautiful Red Vespas are well cared for, a joy to ride and most of all, Francesco brings the experience of a history and archeology major to his passion for Rome to complete an incredible experience.

I have been to Rome many times but there are some things near by I had never been to able to see. When I heard about the Castelli Romani Tour offered by Roma Rent Bike, it sounded all inclusive at a very fair price and I thought I would give it a try over some of the bigger companies. I could not be happier that I did!

We saw some lovely parts of Rome to start our day with Francesco sharing stories all along the way. We stopped for a full tour of the catacombs that could not have been more fascinating.

On our way to Castelli Romani, he took me to places where the original Appian Way is best preserved and even took me to his special spot where you will see the aqueduct in its most preserved state.

If you like movies, he took me to where they filmed Ben-Hur and we even drove by Cinecittà, Rome's version of Hollywood. This was all in addition to the best part of the trip; visiting Castelli Romani.

We went everywhere while enjoying incredible views of the volcanic crater lake, the rolling countryside and vineyards and spectacular views of Rome like you have never seen it.

We even managed to have a lovely lunch in the hills in traditional style topped off with a coffee at a proper Italian coffee shop. All told, we traveled over 80km over the course of more than 6 hours.

As a consultant that helps companies across the globe with their customer experience, I seldom run into experiences where everything is done just right but this is one that does.

I look forward to sharing my Roma Rents experience story as best practice in my professional career and hope that others get to have a day like I had today and share in Francesco's lust for life and how it comes through in his business.
