Private tour guide Valerio

Valerio C.

Rome, Lazio, Italy

Ciao! My name is Valerio, I'm 31 years old I live in Rome and I'm an archeologist.

I graduated in Archaeology in 2015 and in the late 2017 I got a Master Degree in Science of Archeology and Methodology of Archeological Research.
I passed my exam to become a tour guide in July 2018, I can legally exercise the profession on national level, and I have also the license as tour leader.
I was born and raised in Rome, and I chose to be an archeologist at a young age, fascinated by the work that I saw everytime I went in the center of my city, by the huge buildings thousands of years old and the incredible history behind them. That feeling of pride and luck and fascination, is still the same, even today.
With my friends I found the passion of telling the history and the secrets behind the Coliseum, the Imperial Forums, what did we archeologists do on a dig site, and I found them so interested in what I was telling them to make me ask myself: why do I not make this a profession? I mean, I enjoy telling stories, I studied hard to do so, so why not?
So I became a Tour Guide, and I enthusiastically lead people who choose me as their guide on the same paths that fascinated me, assured that the feelings that pushed me to study archeology will be felt by those same people I'm leading. Rome has so much to offer, from the Roman to the Dark Ages, Renaissance, Contemporary and Modern times, and I can't wait to tell you, my dear reader, what there's to know about the Eternal City.
