What you'll do

Rome is undoubtedly one of the most picturesque cities in the world to explore. Join me on an enchanting stroll through the city centre as we visit some of the major sights that you really shouldn’t miss, plus some of my off-the-beaten-track spots. My route is carefully curated and I make sure to take characteristic little back alleys that few venture down.

We meet at the base of Trajan’s Column, next to the Venice Square (Piazza Venezia), in the real heart of the Eternal city. After getting to know each other, I will begin to explain the ancient Imperial Forum, the unification of Italy and the rebirth of Rome during the Renaissance.

The Trevi Fountain attracts millions of visitors every year and with me you will find out why! Admire its beauty as I give you the full story behind the fountain and we get to the bottom of the coin-throwing tradition.

The next stop will be in Piazza della Rotunda, the location of the world-famous Pantheon. Experience this most important of Rome’s pagan temples and discover its 2000 years of history.

We save the best till last: Piazza Navona, which is by far the most elaborate of Rome’s squares. Absorb the ambiance as we get into the rivalry between the artists whose works have defined the beauty of this square.

Privately book this experience at a time of your choosing for just 70 Euros. Covid19 Offer!

On Sunday's the Pantheon is closed
Other things to note
The tour is 1.5kms walking.

I’m a travelling addict/history buff from Brighton, in the UK. I’ve been working in Rome since I was 18, when I stumbled across the city on an interrail trip around Europe. The rustic alleyways, warm summer nights and incredible food had me hooked – Rome became home. That was 8 years ago.

I worked with various reputable tourism business’ over the years and quickly took an interest in Roman History. Through experience I realised the value of a 5-star review and learnt how maintain a 5 star experience throughout the entire customer journey. I graduated into working as a tour guide in 2016. It feels crazy to say that was four years ago - it’s flown by.

Now it’s 2020 and I run a small tourism business with my trusted Airbnb Co-hosts. Book now and join us on an unforgettable experience in Rome. We speak English, German, French and Spanish!

Captivant, j’ai passée une merveilleuse après midi en compagnie de Giulietta, c’est une femme passionnée par sa vile natale, elle a su nous transmettre cette amour pour la ville de Rome. Des explications toujours très détaillés, à chaque nouveaux pas que nous faisons c’était un nouveau moment que nous découvrions. Je vous conseille cette activité les yeux fermés.

We’ve done 3 amazing tours with Collin and Russel. The guys were amazing and very knowledgable. They’ve told us a lot about the history of Rome. The first tour we booked with Colline was a walking tour, we already been to some of the places that he showed us but he surprised us with many new stories that we haven’t heard before from other tours we’ve been on. Impressive! He was happy to answer all of our questions. He showed us amazing restaurants and views that only locals would know. The second tour with Collin was to the Coliseum and the Forum. He made it very interesting and enjoyable. I honestly think It was one of the best experience we’ve done in Rome. For our last night in Rome we choose the Tipsy tour where we met Russel. It’s Definitely a night to remember! Collin and Russel are not only knowledgeable and great storytellers, they also know how to have fun!😆 We’re looking forward coming back in the future. Highly recommend to anyone! Great guys and great company!

J’ai vraiment a-do-ré la soirée passée avec Gullietta : immergées dans cette ville magique, nous avons revu tous les lieux mythiques, en les resituant dans l’histoire.... Gullietta est chaleureuse, disponible (elle n’a pas compté son temps), et très qualifiée, de plus elle s’adapte à toute demande .... je vous souhaite vraiment d’avoir le privilège de faire une visite de Rome en sa compagnie, vous en reviendrez enthousiaste, plus cultivée et plein d’étoiles dans les yeux et le cœur... Merci sincèrement Gullietta !!! En espérant que le soleil se lève sur le tourisme à Rome !

Giulietta fue nuestra guía para un tour en Español y quedamos encantados! Muy completo y ameno. Fue atenta desde antes de comenzar, incluso nos prestó un paraguas. Es muy apasionada con la ciudad y se nota por la forma tan cautivante que cuenta la historia. Incluso nos dio tips para comer en sitios muy bien escondidos pero con una comida casera increíble. Recomendado este tour si quieres aprender un poco de trasfondo y disfrutar💕
