Sergio G.

Roma, Rm, Italy

Ciao, a few words about myself: instead of a Tour Guide, notwithstanding my official license, I'd rather be considered your friendly "Local Expert", your "Buddy in Rome".

One of my guests reviews may explain what I mean:
"Sergio was a fantastic tour guide. He had such extensive knowledge of history and art in Rome. He was very personable and had great English. The best part of his time with us was his bond with my 1. 5 year old daughter. He took her into consideration the entire tour and edited where needed to make the trip enjoyable and possible with a little one in tow"
The word I like the best is: "edited"!
All my tours are different because. . . they develop following my guests' needs and interests!

I was born and raised in Rome, where I still live in a nice and quiet area close to the Vatican. Even if my teaching experiences lasted only a few months when I taught Italian for foreigners, most of my colleagues call me: "The Professor", may be because of my University Degree in History, or may be because I look pretty serious. . !! To tell the truth I have a deep sense of Humour, expecially when I talk about our politicians!!

I started working in tourism in 1970 (for Hertz rent a car). In 1980 I moved to the Reception of a centrally located Hotel in Rome (front desk staff). In 1987 I've got my licence as a Italy and Europe Tour Guide.
In the following. . 20 years (Oh mamma mia!) I worked mainly leading Tours in Italy and Europe, but in the last ten years, as a licensed Tour Guide mostly in Rome only: I love this caotic city! A great mixture of past, present and, why not, future! One day I was leading as a location manager (I did that too. . . !) a BBC crew filming here by the Campo dei Fiori fruit and vegetable market. . . Talking with one of the speakers I told him that Rome. . "Is like a beautiful woman. . sometimes you hate her. . . but you can't live without her. . . " He liked this so much that he wanted me to repeat it in front of the video camera: what a shame!!!

Do not hesitate to contact me for any curiosity, info, request you might have: your questions are more then welcome and dear to me. .
By the way my wife is a musician (baroque violinist) so we might also offer private concerts as well. .
I like cooking, good food, good wines, good music, singing, driving and. . taking pictures. . That's why in some of my Tours I propose using a rented car.

*** IMPORTANT ***

I can accommodate various groups of travelers, up to 50 guests. If you have specific transportation requirements, pricing inquiries or if your preferred start time isn't listed, please send me an email by clicking on the 'ASK A QUESTION' button that's listed on my tour page and profile. I will reply to you promptly. One more thing: all my tours are private tours so I can customise them around your specific requests. Would you like multiple days tours? Let's talk about! By car or, why not, by train (I'll organize and take care of all relevant bookings) I am and will be at your disposal to make your "Journey to Italy" an amazing one, just like Goethe, Sthendal, etc when they came here doing their "Grand Tour"! Thanks!

*** As a Official Italian Tour Guide since 1987 I possess multiple special licenses. I am authorized to enter the restricted area of the Port of Civitavecchia, as well as a lot of "specific" sites (top museums and sites, such as Coloseum, Vatican Museums, etc). Furthermore, I can assist you with skiptheline tickets, train tickets, etc. Let's talk about: I will suggest you the best way to enjoy any minute of your visit!!
