Cialone Tour was founded in 1895 by Mr Giovan Battista Cialone and initially provided passenger transport between the station and the city centre in Ferentino (Italy). In the 1950s Cialone Tour also started renting out coaches. Even today, Cialone still offers these two services and is the official carrier for various sports clubs, including All Blacks and Frosinone Calcio. Family business Cialone Tour is run by three brothers from the Cialone family and their children. They are at the fourth generation and the fifth is already being prepared.
