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 center 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.

Itinerary :

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.

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 5 years ago - it’s flown by.

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

The tour was okay but it could be a lot better. The sites are amazing and it's nice to see a little bit of Rome. The guides spent a bit much time plugging their other tours which was kinda off putting. we thought the storytelling was disappointing. I don't know if it's too fast or too expensive. We chose the tour in English, so I cannot confirm if it's the same for French or Italian tours. Explanations were very descriptive and not focused at all on the how or the why. Very little added value. I had the feeling that I would have known as much if I visited all by myself. 15€ for that is kind of expensive.

La nostra guida Giulietta si è dimostrata molto competente e preparata. Ha personalizzato il tour modificando il percorso in base alle nostre esigenze/conoscenze. Con nostro piacere, il tour è terminato più tardi del previsto e Giulietta è stata estremamente disponibile da questo punto di vista. Consiglio assolutamente questa esperienza con Giulietta.
