Top 9 Wine Tours & Tastings in Vatican City, Lazio

May 16, 2022 Hector Krause

Sure, Vatican City is tiny—110 acres—but it houses the world's largest Catholic church (St. Peter's Basilica) and has perhaps the best collection of artistic masterpieces in the world (the Sistine Chapel, Michelangelo's Pieta, the Laocoon Group, etc.). And maybe only 800 people live here, but one of them's the Pope. It's a pretty good argument for quality over quantity.

We had the most wonderful tour with Luca and his vintage mini! The night tour is absolutely magical as the city comes alive under the lights! Luca is a fantastic host who loves his city and he will have you feeling the same way. Luca arranged reservations for us at one of his favorite restaurants and then he picked us up at 8:00 pm to begin our tour. He will take you to all the must see sites as well as some hidden gems. (As well as a bar stop for a delicious cocktail) We wished we had done it at the beginning of our trip as we may very well have booked a second tour. Luca definitely provides VIP treatment and you get cool berets and driving hats for the ultimate “cool” experience! It’s worth it!!!!

A lovely lady called Gulia took my husband and I on a walk round Rome sampling food and drink from various shops and a superb pasta lunch. If you are going todo this tour I advise you not to eat much beforehand as we finished the tour around 2:00pm and did not eat another thing all day. We had meats and cheese with some wine to start off with and then followed this in a picturesque market square with tasting various oils and vinegars. Roman Pizza and beer were next, followed by a delicious lunch of two different types of pasta. Then followed dessert of either cannoli or tirimisu at another stop off point, ice cream and coffee to finish. Never felt so full. Guila was full of interesting conversation about her city. All in all a great day out ending at the Trevi fountain.

The Agency was helpful in the booking office, but the purchased time slot was not available even though we had booked it in advance and paid. However they were able to give us an earlier time slot. The booking stated that the host accompanied us to the correct entrance at the colosseum. This didn’t happen and we where given verbal directions at the booking office which was about a 5 minute walk away. This wasn’t as advertised and I think was poor customer service. It added stress and hassle to the trip which I had paid to avoid. The booking details are inaccurate and should be changed to suit the actual service provided. The Colosseum itself was brilliant and awe-inspiring!

We had a very enjoyable and informative all-day tour of Rome and Vatican City. Our guide, Nicola, was very knowledgeable and friendly. He arranged the schedule perfectly and gave us keen insights on each point of interest that we visited. Our driver, Claudio, expertly navigated the routes and was very friendly as well. We engaged Claudio to give us another half-day tour of Castel Gandolfo, which was superb. I strongly recommend Limousine Service in Italy for your travel needs.

This time we have chosen to discover Palermo in a walking tour. That was our first time in Palermo and our guide, knowing this detail, made a point in explaining and making us discover the main landmarks of this beautiful Sicilian city. After that he suggested a wonderful local restaurant where we had lunch and it was indeed very good food reasonably priced and the restaurant was full of local people, which is, when you don't know a city, the best token for good quality. After lunch our guide walked us back to our cruise. Thank you very much Tour Travel for this great experience
