Rome: James Bond Spectre Tour by Minivan

10. Rome: James Bond Spectre Tour by Minivan

In “Spectre,” James Bond drives his Aston Martin at a terrifying speed through the narrow, ancient streets of Rome. He’s being hunted down by SPECTRE, the sinister criminal organization, and its mysterious member Franz Oberhauser (played by Christoph Waltz). The Eternal City is the setting for about 20 film scenes. Step onto the open-air set and relive many of these key moments. Take on the role of “Bond... James Bond” or femme fatale Lucia Sciarra and follow in their footsteps.   Your guides would love to put you behind the wheel of an Aston Martin but that’s a little out of the budget. Instead, you’ll slide into a discreet, luxurious and comfortable alternative: a sleek black minivan. And since no one besides Bond should tackle Roman traffic, you’ll have a driver. This will allow you to soak up all the 007 sites and fully enjoy the tour. You will be taken behind the scenes, revealing how the real Rome can differ from the movie-magic version. During this evening tour, experience the energy, excitement and spectacular beauty of the Italian capital after dark. And maybe even a Bond-worthy adrenaline rush. You will be 007 or a Bond girl until the bitter end. To conclude, you’ll toast the evening adventures with a "shaken not stirred” martini, a genuine Italian cocktail. This “Spectre” tour led by a stellar guide has all the elements of the luxurious world of James Bond.

What people are saying about Colle del Gianicolo

Our guide for the trip was Chiara, and our day began with a stop at Montepulciano where Chiara introduced us to a local guide who shared very interesting facts about the area as they brought us around. We then stopped by the Poggio il Castellare vineyard for a lunch (the wine was simply fantastic - several members of my group bought multiple bottles home) and the day ended with a short stop at Pienza. What was simply lovely about Chiara was her enthusiastic and passionate sharing about all kinds of stuff all throughout the trip!

Anna (our guide) and Gianni (our driver) were a great duo who provided an exceptional experience. Anna was incredibly informative and gave us information not only about our tour but about life in Italy as well. While at the winery, Gianni made sure to get our attention and directed us to a scenic overlook we surely would have missed without his help.

The itinerary was really interesting. We enjoyed the day spend with guides Sara and Anna. The food and wine was brilliant. The landscape was extraordinary.

Would definitely recommend this day trip. Tuscany is beautiful and Emiliano was an amazing tour guide, full of knowledge, stories and great fun!

Beautiful scene, great wine, good tour leader (chatty but she knows many things), friendly group.
