Monica C.

Rome, Italy

Hello Everybody, I am a licensed tour guide based in Rome.

I was born and raised in Rome, then I traveled the world because of my father's job. I came back to Rome where I graduated from college in History and Philosophy with a minor ( I would rather say: a true passion!) for art history and archeology. I lived in New York for several years and then I came back to Rome where I am blessed to "play tourist in my own city" as a job.
I love my city, the Eternal City, which means " no matter who the ruler is" this city is eternal. I love to share the history of some of the most important and famous venues in town, but I also love to make my clients feel "insiders" when they explore Rome and Italy. Living abroad gave me the chance to see my country with different eyes and actually, I love being " a cultural bridge" for people who visit Rome.
I do a lot of tours, but I am also very flexible when it comes to matching my client's expectations. I love helping my clients to tailor their trip to Italy from the moment I have the privilege to receive their first email.
I will make sure to make your visit to Rome and Italy an unforgettable "album" of memories. I have a network of people helping me to do so. While you are in Rome, you would like to visit Pompei? We'll be there in no time with a day trip which will exceed your expectation. Have you always wanted to visit the gorgeous Capri? We will make it happen.
All you have to do is sharing with me your dreams about what seeing in Rome or from Rome in a day trip.

I am looking forward to hearing from you
See you soon. . . A presto

A Recent Review of this guide

The tour was GREAT! We saw more sites in one day than I would if I had planned the whole tour myself. The advantage was the guide with an unbelievable amount of information. After reviewing over 20 guides' information, I selected Monica primarily because of her experience. She took us places that no one includes in their tour. She gave us a great perspective of the 'touristic sites' and what Rome really was in those days. Her 3D Oculus projection of the Colosseum was amazing. I Strongly recommend Monica.

Some of the numerous reviews I received :

28/02/2018 Best of Rome.
Friendly and Informative with a good sense of humour. I really liked the way she introduced herself and asked where we were from before the tour started, this is the first time I have had a tour guide do this.

Thank you, Monica, for sharing your passion for the Borghese Museum with us. We so enjoyed spending the afternoon with you and learning so much about the history of Bernini, Caravaggio and so much more. You shared your wealth of knowledge with us in a way that had us engaged and interested in all you had to say. I think you are one of the best tour guides we had
