Hello :) I'm Selene and in my energetic and positive Team we are all Archaeologist specialized in Ancient Rome and official Tour Guides.

Romans since generations, we have studied in this amazing city, doing many archaeological excavations in the area that we will discover togheter, so we will give you many information that you can't find on guides ;)

We have created this unique and charming experience to immerse you in a city of 2000 years ago, pointing out the traces of the daily life of the past that are still visible all over around, but that only an "Archeological Eye " can read !

It will be fun, engaging and informative :D...

Where you'll be

Like real Archaeologists we will explore the Colosseum, and skip the lines over at the Roman Forum and head inside for a full tour of Ancient Rome's bustling civic center and the Palatine Hill.
We will literally walk in the footsteps of men like Julius Caesar (the roads contain their original paving stones) and we will end on an amazing rooftop for memorable pictures.

Esperienza davvero soddisfacente. Chiara e Gianmarco sono delle guide preparate, appassionate del loro lavoro e dalle ottime capacità relazionali: è stato come girare per il Colosseo e i Fori insieme ad amici molto esperti, non è il solito anonimo tour. La comunicazione con Selene è sempre immediata e chiara. Purtroppo la pioggia ha ridotto la durata della visita ai Fori, ma il tempo rimasto è stato utilizzato per fornire consigli sulle attività e sui locali di Roma, molto graditi.

Chiara and Gianmarco were such great hosts. Their tour was engaging and provided a mesmerizing background to how these places would have been in the past. The tour was filled with nuggets on the lives of the people, emperors, gladiators and commoners. Definitely worth the time and money.
