Monica was amazing! She made us feel like family! She even called a colleague and arranged another tour for us for Pompeii at the end of our tour. She is a wealth of Information about the historical and religious aspects of the Vatican. She loves her job!! She welcomes any question and offered to take photos for us throughout the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Cory for your kind words. It was easy to feel like family with your beautiful family. Enjoy Pompei and come back soon to Rome. Baci Monica

Our first morning Monica took us to the Pantheon and the Colosseum. Monica knew just how to capture my granddaughter's attention and cater to her interests. We had seen Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps the afternoon before. She took us to the Jewish ghetto where we saw the old market, the beautiful synagogue and ate lunch in a wonderful kosher restaurant. Monica took us by the prison and told us some interesting stories. She then showed us some of modern Rome with great wall art
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure having you on my tours. Come back soon. Hugs and kisses to both of you. Monica

This was the way to go! Skipped lines and Monica was terrific - she is a native Roman with a Fine Arts degree and her passion for her city was evident!! Even my husband enjoyed the tour!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Becky, I have no words to thank you for your beautiful words. I am happy I could share with you the love for my city and fragments of its fascinating history. I am glad your husband enjoyed the tour. I hope to see you soon in Rome. Kisses Monica
Monica is absolutely amazing. We had a previous tour cancelled by a different provider and Monica came through for us. She is a delight, very knowledgable and I want to thank her for giving my daughter and I an experience we will never forget. We were brought to tears in the Sistine Chapel without the crowds and allowing us to simply absorb the beauty and spirituality of where we were. Thank you again Monica. I look forward to seeing you again!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marnie, I am glad I was able to give a memorable experience. It was a pleasure meeting you and your daughter. I look forward to seeing you in future. Kisses Monica

I'd say Monica gave us the best tour we've ever had! Her passion made it exciting and fun. We will use Monica whenever possible now!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Emilia and thank you Cory. It was an honor and a pleasure to show you the place where history meets beauty. I hope to see you soon in the Eternal City. Hugs and kisses. Arrivederci a presto
Best guide in Rome! My sisters and I are travelling with our 83 year old mother, who hasn't been to Rome since 1963. Monica went out of her way to make our Sistine Chapel early morning tour one to remember. It was perfect. I had done a guided tour of the Vatican Museum a couple of years ago, with another company, which was great, however Monica really made today very special for us all. I would highly recommend her to anyone contemplating a private guided tour in Rome. Gracie Mille Monica.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sean, it was a pleasure to meet you all and a real privilege to show the restored Sistine Chapel to your gorgeous mom. Thank you for your kind words. I hope to see you again in Rome. Baci e abbracci.

Monica is a great person and a wonderful tour guide! Our tour coincided with our anniversary, and Monica made it a very special time for us. The tour was excellent. There were the three of us, plus one other group of about 20 people, and we were the only ones in the Sistine Chapel for a good 30 minutes. It was incredible! Monica's knowledge of art history runs deep and this came out in our tour of the Vatican Museums. Monica listened to us and personalized our tour. We would highly recommend Monica!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Marcus and John, I am so happy and honored to have been part of your memories, that is why I had to make you were satisfied. A true pleasure meeting you. I hope to see you soon in the Eternal City. Baci e abbracci Monica
