Day trip from Rome: Sulmona, the town of Confetti and Pacentro - private tour

By Divine Horizon
Enjoy your private trip from Rome with your English speaking driver to Sulmona, the town of confetti! Thanks to a long tradition and the presence of quality raw materials (mainly almonds), the town situated in the Valle Peligna is considered one of the major producers of this delicacy widely used during celebrations such as weddings, christenings, birthdays etc. Sulmona is definitely one of those centers in Abruzzo fascinating for its architecture and the atmosphere you breathe. The best thing is to walk by sneaking in the side streets, peeking through the courtyards, stopping to admire the ancient buildings, enjoying that feeling of being in a timeless place. Continue to Pacentro, a tiny medieval village famous to gave birth to the grandparents of the singer Madonna, to the paternal ones of Mike Pompeo, American secretary of state under the presidency of Donald Trump, and to many Italian emigrants to the US. A stop for lunch is included during the day ( fees at your own expense )

          Best way to see the Colosseum!
          We booked our private tour through Viator and operated by Love Holidays. You'll definitely need your walking shoes for this one! While it's a pretty lengthy tour with lots of walking, it was totally worth it! Our guide coordinated picking us up in a private car and getting us to the Colosseum as well as getting us through the LONG line and security extremely quickly to avoid the Easter weekend crowds. She was well versed in the overall Roman history of these sites and provided us with some great photo stops along the walking tour, taking excellent pictures of us for special memories. She was full of very interesting historical knowledge and background information without being overwhelming or boring. We visited the main two floors of the Colosseum, then we ventured out to the Arch of Constantine, climbed the Palatine and ambled through the Ancient Roman and Imperial Forums filled with temples, monuments, the burial site of Cesar, etc. It was a tour PACKED with sites and facts that we would definitely recommend to anyone looking to explore that area and history of Rome.

          Informative and fun experience at the Roman Forum and Colosseum with Pasqualino from Divine Horizon Tours.
          We really enjoyed the informative tour of the Colosseum and Roman Forum. It was a fun experience as we learned a lot about Ancient Rome. Our guide, Pasqualino, was an amazing person and he taught us a lot of the history behind the Forum and Colosseum. 3 hours was the perfect amount of time as we got to see everything that there was to offer. Overall, the 5 of us (3 kids) (2 Adults) really enjoyed this experience and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good tour.

          Every tour was better than the previous one!
          Our recent experience in Rome with Divnehorizon Tours was truly memorable. From start to finish, they delivered a personalized and immersive experience that exceeded our expectations. Alessandro our guide, was a fountain of knowledge, infusing Rome's history with passion and captivating storytelling. Divinehorizon lived up to its promise of skip-the-line access, allowing us to maximize our time at iconic sites. What set them apart was their commitment to revealing Rome's hidden treasures. We explored charming alleys, discovered local gems, and indulged in authentic cuisine. Their meticulous planning, from transportation to accommodations, ensured a hassle-free journey. The culinary journey was a highlight, with gelato, pizza, and pasta that left us craving more. Every day brought unforgettable moments, from the Trevi Fountain to the breathtaking views of Palatine Hill. In summary, they created an unforgettable Roman experience that left us in awe. If you seek an exceptional tour operator in Rome, look no further. We can't wait to explore more of Italy with them.

          Worst tour guide ever!
          I hired this tour via my hotel. It was to be uner 10 persons, but there were 11 or 12. The tour guide from the beginning had a poor attitude. She was annoyed as there were so many guests for which English was not their primary language. The paying guests were not complaining! She always walked far ahead in the crowded Vatican and recited her verbiage that we could have purchased from a book. ...but it gets worse. In the Cistene Chapel she just walk ahead not paying attention where were her psying guests. AND she left an 80 year old Asian, limited English speaking women behind. This old lady was lost and panicked and did not know what to do. This guide did not even backtrack to find I spent the next 1.5 hour 'babysitting' an 80 year old to find her family. Her pathetic excuse." There were other paying customers ". Happily I found her family at the Vatican exit. The tour guide had already left the Vatican! I complained to the Tour Company as I wanted my money refunded. However, they just said this tour guide felt bad and was crying, but how about the 80 year old anxious and crying old lady? I would NEVER use or recommend this guide again, or this Tour company. I advised Hotel Baglioni Roma too as to what an uncaring, unprofessional rip-off vendor. There is no possible excuse. JMR

          Divine Horizon | Love Holidays - Great tour & general services
          We recently took a longer trip to Italy, specifically Rome and Naples. Love Holidays/Rome Top Tours came highly recommended. We booked the following three tours with them: - Colosseum, Roman Forum, Palatine - Catacombs on the Appian Way &Villa dei Quintili and Capuchyn Cript - Tivoli - Villa Adriana and Villa d’Este. Additionally we asked them to manage ground transportation to and from the airport, book trains to and from Naples, and ground transportation to/from the train stations in Naples and Rome. The team was very professional and quick to respond ... even on the weekends when you thought that they might not be in the office. The cars and drivers were great and very personable. The tours were well planned and the guides knowledgeable. Cannot recommend enough.

          Great Guide to a Great City
          This was day 1 for us in Rome and we learnt so much in a relaxed way from a great guide. It seemed that every time we turned a corner there was a new delight and rarely were we near more than half a dozen other tourists despite the throngs ! Very clever. So good we booked another tour for the next day. Great value for money

          Touring the MV with a friend.
          My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the Vatican Museum that we scheduled through you. The tour was made doubly enjoyable by the knowledgeable guide provided our group. I cannot remember his name but we have provided a picture. His mixture of knowledge and humor, along with sharing a bit of himself made our tour more like a walk with a friend than a lecture of information. When we found out that St. Peter's was going to be closed our guide was quickly able to adjust and take us through another group of rooms to give us a full guided experience at the MV. We will highly recommend your tour! Sincerely, Kevin and Carrie Brooks, Michigan U.S.A.

          Ina was amazing!
          Ina made the tour of this entire area come to life. It was like getting a history lesson from one of the most interesting history teachers ever. I always thought the colosseum would be the best part of this experience, but due to Ina's expert guide experience, the Palatine Hill/Roman Forum segment was the highlight! She also was very accommodating when my daughter was getting overheated, making sure she got her in front of lines for water and loaning her an umbrella for the sun. Couldn't be happier with this tour.

          Amazing tour with Federica Bannetta August 11
          My husband and I booked the Vatican underground, Museum, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica along with the Castel Santa Angelo. We had Federica Bannetta as our guide. She did a fabulous job! My husband is very knowledgeable about Roman history and Federica immediately picked up on that and customized our tour for him. We packed in a full day of fascinating sites and new information. We were very impressed with her knowledge of subject matter, her warm engaging personality and thoughtfulness.

          Great and seamless travel experience!
          Ms Mara helped us put together an itinerary of private tours for 4 persons over 5 days in Italy which included 3 days in Rome (Day 1 - Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, St Peter's Basilica, Day 2 - Colosseum, Roman Forum, Palatine Hill, Day 3 - Trastevere, Tiber Island, and Jewish Ghetto Walking tour), 1 half day Naples Tour, and a 2hr Pompeii guided tour. Ms Mara was so easy to work with to customize the tours, she offered great recommendations and advice to help us plan our trip to Italy. We were picked up on time each day. We got to meet different guides each day, and are impressed by their knowledge and professionalism. It was a great way to learn about the history and culture of the cities we visited in the limited time that we have. We didn't have to stress about standing in line for tickets and figuring out what to see. The guides on our private tours took care of all the logistics, and guided us to the highlights of the sights and explain the history that are relevant. It was a pleasant and seamless travel experience. We will gladly engage with Rome Top Tours again to plan our future trips to Italy! A big Thank You to Ms Mara and her team of tour guides!

          Professor Erik is the Absolute Best
          We cannot say enough good things about this tour and most especially our guide, Erik. Not only was he highly educated and informed about everything related to the Vatican, he had a great sense of humor as we stopped and discussed the important works of art and locations around the city. The private setting was perfect for being able to absorb the things he was teaching us and afforded us the opportunity to ask a lot of questions. We were consistently amazed with how much he knew and how fluently he spoke Italian. He was born in America but moved to Italy 25 years ago to continue his passion for learning. We knew we were in good hands. If you want to tour the Vatican, while learning as much about it as you want, and have a great time while doing it then you definitely need to book a tour with Professor Erik. We can’t wait to return and book another tour with him.
