  1. DO NOT BOOK with this agency. They do not follow their cancellation policy. They will not refund tours cancelled due to COVID-19.

  2. I'm Roman and live in Rome and still didn't see it all. There's so many things if you like art architecture and history that you'll never finish to learn. 2800 years stratified in one city

  3. We took 3 different tours with this company and absolutely love all 3. We did the Colosseum, the catacombs and a wine and food tour. We then did a bus tour of Italy and Sicily. Those 3 tours with the tour guy were the best!

  4. I followed the same itinerary spread over a span of 2 days and fell in love with the city. 1 day would be very tiresome but if you don't have time go ahead with this one.
    1 recommendation for food buffs with limited time in the city. If you are at termini (the main train station in Rome) do visit the Mercato Market. You'll find a little bit of everything there to tick all italian food items on your bucket list 🙂

  5. I'm italian and I live in Rome, one thing I can say is that even though I see all these places almost everyday, I never get tired of them. they keep their magic. A little advice, visit Rome at night, it's a whole different experience. Ofc not the vatican and the museams. Enjoy and thanks for the kind words about Rome

  6. How can you learn about Rome history In one day?
    I know tourist are busy and what to see as much as possible but I still think it's to little.
    Also the Vatican is of the church not truly Roman

  7. I've been to Rome several times. My best picks are: The Vatican (it's simply a MUST), Pantheon, monument to Victor Emmanuel II (Including the nearby Basilica di Santa Maria in Ara coeli and Campidoglio), Roman forum, Scala Sancta and the Lateran church.

  8. Ive been Rome 3 times and Ive yet to see it all! Im goung AGAIN in April 2020..So I need you Roman Guy as wanna book a tour guide for myself and grandson..? Can you give me the link? Also best time to go Vatican museum ,is early? What time do the doors open?
