Finding a good cigar

I enjoy an occasional cigar. Something like an Arturo Fuente Hemingway Classic, which runs about $7.25 US or $5.50 Euros. Any suggestions for finding a good smoke in Rome? Are Cubans available?

Go Bucks!

Jack, my husband quitted cigarettes and enjoys a good cigar too. He thinks that the Italian "Antico Toscano" are very good ones. You can find cigars in every Tobacchi. There is a big T outside the shop. Anyway Tabacco's heaven for him in Rome is FINCATO in Via Colonna Antoniana n. 34 - near Piazza Colonna and Via del Corso. It's close to Italian Parliament and GVT site. So there u might have the chance to see Italian politics.........they are a weird Italian genre. Worth the visit .....LOL

You can find also Cubani cigars but ...can u take them back home?

ciao

Hi Jack,

As Stettola said, cigars are available at any Tabacci. Cubans are readily available. Prices (even with the low dollar) seemed pretty decent, much better than buying when in Canada.

Grazie stettola and taylorj, the information is very helpful.

Yes stettola, Cuban cigars are still illegal to bring back into the States.

Go Bucks!
