    Yas Rome is a wonderful city and personally although they speak of Paris as the city for lovers I believe Rome more a place for romantics. Like you I’m very impressed with Italian wine and particularly the Sangiovese based Chianti Tuscans reds although in more recent years a great deal of Cabernet sauvignon has been grown and we have seen the emergence of the so called “super Tuscans” with super prices to match! Give me a good quality Chianti classico any day and at a fraction of the price. Like Tomp on my far too few visits to Rome when I lived in the UK my cigar purchases were limit to the airport duty free shops. Weatherwise sounds like you didn’t have the best of luck but it’s pot luck anyway and spring or summer can be equally unreliable. Lucky to have a girlfriend who allowed you more than one cigar expedition!

    I am currently in Roma and had the opportunity to visit Fincato LCDH. Wonderful assortment,if a bit pricey. Bought the regional editon which is very good. I purchased Cohiba esplendidos and partagas p2 and d4 as well as petite edmundos. The cigars were well aged and some had blume,which I really like. All in all, a great experience very friendly staff and smoking have a splendid esplendido as I write this.

    Here is a complaint I made to the Italian distributor of Habanos:

    Dear Sirs,

    I believe you are the main distributors of Habanos brands in Italy,

    I purchased a few cigars (Cohiba 1966 Limited Edition 2011) in March 2012 from your LCDH in Rome (Via della Colonna Antonina, 34), since I found the cigar didn’t match my expectations, I took a deeper look into it and found out the ring is not exactly correct, please watch the picture, you will find 3,5 rows of white squares on a black background after the golden lining, there should be 3 not more.

    I exposed this subject to a Turkish cigar forum and some members pointed to some fake cigars intercepted in Rome Airport and all that saw the picture agreed the one I bought from LCDH Roma is a fake. I am still keeping the rings and can send you more pictures at your will.

    Now me and some thousands of forum members are shocked to find out LCDH shops may not be as trustable as they seem, so I am looking forward for your views as to those picture in order to inform everyone about what happened. I am still keeping 2 behike 56, since those rings are holographic I don’t think they can be copied, but still LCDH has lost a huge credit in my view, unless you prove otherwise.

    Kind regards.

    What would be your comments, everyone? Is it possible to find fakes in LCDH shops? (why not??)

    This place is still in business. If you are near the Pantheon you are close. Worth the stop. Has incredible Pipe selection. I purchased some Montecristos, Bolivars, and my favorite Cuaba.

    Wow, I’m glad I found this post. I have a buddy getting ready to be stationed in Italy. Will have to make sure he stops by a few places if he visits Rome.

    Does anyone have any recommendations for must-see cigar shops anywhere else in Italy?
