Your essential contribution, sensibility, wishes, inclinations, tastes and background become mine and I lavish them on my next tour. It becomes a moment of cultural exchange and a personal benefit not only as a tour guide but mainly as a person. Meeting people for me is like traveling with my imagination and so my philosophy is that experiencing Rome is never a one-way conversation, but a chance for a reciprocal growth. I can proudly say I have had a lot of customers but I also have many friends.
This awareness however is the result of a long journey starting with a Degree in Preservation of the Cultural Heritage in Sicily and a Master Degree in Classical Archaeology (i. e. greek and roman).
So I'm an archaeologist and an official guide of Rome and its province since 2009 but mainly I'm a traveler.
This is why my tours are 100% clients oriented, never forget that it is your tour not mine! I can handle any kind of experience like the regular tours with adults, or family tours, where I can say I'm an expert! My two daughters help me every day! And in general I'm at your disposal for any kind of customization according to the time available and your interests.
I can provide an overview of the city covering the main attractions as well as discovering the hidden treasures and visiting the off the beaten tracks sites for those who already had a taste of the city.
Contact me also for driving, electric bike, running and segway tours, for a different way to explore the eternal city.
What makes my tour an unique experience though are two goals to achieve on a tour. .
The first is to make my love and passion for what this marvelous city offers contagious, and second, as a consequence of the previous, to leave this city with a feeling of respect of the past and the wish for every possible visitor after you to enjoy the same beauty!
Being not merely a guide though but digging since the age of 18, what I offer is not a simple tour, but a way to breath history.
I'll do my best to let the monuments come alive as I had the privilege to take part to the excavation of an area very close to the Colosseum. The experience turned afterwards into my MD focused on Nero and the Flavians, the dynasty of emperors who built the Colosseum. So the valley of the Amphitheater is like my second home as it was the introduction of my dissertation.
Well. . I did my best to convince you. . I hope it worked:-)) See you in Rome! ciao!
