Flaminia was great. She gave us as much or little detail as we wanted and we got a tremendous amount out of our visit to the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peters. Well worth the time and money. We recommend her enthusiastically.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Steve, thank you for your kind review and say hello to all the family.

This tour was extremely well organized by our very knowledgeable guide Flaminia. Not only does Flaminia know her history but she seems to love what she does. She was able to answer every question. She also possesses a very upbeat and enthusiastic personality. She will make your tour most enjoyable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Alan, thank you. Was my pleasure meeting you and Michelle

Flaminia was an excellent guide for our afternoon walking tour of Rome. When we had to change our plans at the last minute, Flaminia was very flexible and accommodating both on the start time and the content of our tour. She showed us the main sights of Rome, from the Pantheon, to Trevi Fountain, to the Spanish Steps, and along the way, she provided interesting and charming insights into the buildings and activities surrounding these historic places. Very highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm happy we made it, rearranging our day. Hope to see you again in Rome if the project goes through the Vatican.

Flaminia did a wonderful job with our two teens. We expressed an interest in seeing the Pope mobiles and she was very accommodating!!!! She's sweet and enthusiastic...it was a perfect ending to our trip!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Amy, thank you and say hello to all your boys ;)

Flaminia was so knowledgeable, easy to be with, and fun. She immediately was able to sense our level of interest and tailor the tour specifically for the four of us. We enjoyed a fabulous afternoon, not someone reciting a litany of facts. She truly takes pride in her work and her city. I even observed her twice quietly picking up a brochure or ticket that someone had carelessly discarded. She is a gem!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Betty, thank you for your kind words. Was very nice meeting all of you twice :)

Flaminia was an excellent tour guide. She knew everything about our tour of the Vatican and museums and The Sistine Chapel and so much more. She told me all kinds of "secrets" about the artists and the art work. I asked about other places of interest and she knew about all of them. She took us expertly in, got our tickets, explained in detail about what we were going to see. Flaminia was extremely knowledage, energetic, funny, sweet, and kind. I will always try to use her as my guide. ❤️

Flaminia is a fun and easy going. Her knowledge of the Vatican and all the details and art works gave us a memorable experience. We were glad to have her as our tour guide. Ciao!

Flaminia is a fantastic guide. Lots of knowledge and energy. Our whole family enjoyed spending 2 days/2 tours with her in Rome. The Vatican tour is even better than described and a great way to see the site. She took great care of us! Grazie Flaminia!!
Peter BassettUnited States
We engaged Flaminia for a 1 1/2 day tour of Rome. She was timely, well spoken (good English), informative and all-around pleasant and knowledgeable guide with a good sense of humor who added substantively to my knowledge of many of the usual sites that I (but not my companion) had visited previously and introduced us to a few I hadn't. We recommend her without hesitation.

Flaminia did an excellent job keeping the group together under very crowded conditions. She also did a particularly fine job of giving special attention to the young teens in the group, making sure that their questions were answered and that they were included in every aspect of the tour.

Key was a driver picking us up at the hotel - to expedite our ability to meet w/ Flaminia. Once inside, Flaminia's passion for art history was contagious! Her book & humor help bring the stories to life. Our 2 teenage children's attention was captivated the entire time. And, w/ our origins in Calabria, Flaminia customized the tour to that end. She was mindful to abide by the rules where necessary, being sure we didn't embarrass ourselves. She took amazing pictures of us as a forever keepsake. A+ tour-TY!

The Vatican is crowded and can be hard to navigate. Flaminia did an excellent job of outlining the history of the buildings, the artwork, and the styles and techniques of the artists. She was superb in organizing the limited time available (you could easily spend a week there) and made certain that we saw the most significant places, statuary, and artwork. She was informative, entertaining, and engaging and we thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with her. This tour is highly recommended.

Flaminia kept it really interesting and the pace moving at just the right level, and despite a tough audience (my kids!) we all had a good time and know a lot more know than we did about the Vatican!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Daniel, Thank you and say hello to Noah and Eva
Stuart MillerUnited States
Flaminia is awesome!!! She is so kind, smart and knows how to keep everyone engaged. We have a 10 year old daughter and two sons 14 and 16. She was wonderful with them. Made for a perfect tour!!!!! We got her again tomorrow!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie Stu! You really have very good kids

Day 2 with Flaminia to visit Vatican and Sistine Chapel. We moved quickly and efficiently into the various museums where Flaminia showed a great depth of knowledge once again and then into the Sistine Chapel. Flaminia had sat down with us in the coffee shop before to explain the Sistine Chapel ceiling which made the actual viewing so interesting. The Basilica was closed at short notice for a service so we will return to look at it. Walker & Meadows families
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Miriam, thank you. Paul was such a nice boy !

This was an excellent tour. Flaminia was very knowledgable, and knew how to use our time efficiently. She navigated us to all of the highlights. We would definitely book a tour with her again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: grazie

Second day with Flaminia, better than the first because it didn't rain hahaha. As stated before, Flaminia is professional, caring, patient, and very well versed on the sights. She did the normal guide things like where to take the best picture. However she stood apart by taking the time to explain the Chapel and Vatican prior to entering each one, pointed out the unique things to look for and why, and even her favorite spots (the tapestry room and her name sake village). I highly recommend her.
Ken ChadwickUnited States
Flaminia was a delightful guide with lots of interesting information. She was organized, pleasant, and fun to be with for our tour of the Vatican. She was very considerate of our needs and paced the group accordingly. I would highly recommend Flaminia to anyone visiting Rome and wanting to tour any of the famous landmarks!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie! Say hello to all the five lovely girls

I would highly recommend Flaminia to any group looking for a knowledgeable tour guide. One who can add a personal touch in visiting the most important sights of Rome. Flaminia's command of the English language is impeccable and her bubbly and lighthearted personality added to the joy of the time we spent with her.
