Our tour with Alessandra last week was fantastic! We learned so much history and had many laughs with members of our group being transported back in time to fulfill roles of characters in her stories as we walked through the colosseum, palatine hill and Roman forum. We were very lucky with beautiful weather and such an energetic and creative guide. Definitely book this tour and ask for Alessandra for your guide !

Simonita was very knowledgeable and funny. Learning about the three places was well worth the price, as I would have been lost without a guide. I would have spent a few minutes at each place and been done but with Simonita, it was fascinating to hear the facts.

our guide was very knowledgeable and interested in sharing facts with us. he had great explanations about every corner of the places we visited and made the tour much more interesting than it would’ve been had I gone alone. highly recommend.

The tour and organization were very good, the meeting point was clear. The guide was good and managed to capture the attention of children and teenagers

Our Guide Laura was really well prepared and was an excepcional experience
