We think Fabio is short for Fabulous. He is knowledgeable & personable - and provides a tour exactly as needed or desired. He can speak to any question and also had a sense of humour while remaining completely professional. He has a passion for Rome and is super experienced. At the risk of him becoming too busy to ever give me a tour again- you need look no further than Fabio for a truly fantastic day!
Fabio is experienced and very knowledgeable in art history. He provided excellent explanations on topics of history, mythology, culture, religion and politics as we toured the historic sites. Fabio was also very open to questions and provided well thought-out answers. We would highly recommend Fabio!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your lovely review. Hope to see you again here in Rome

Wow! What an incredible day with Fabio. He really knows the history of the Colosseum and the book he brought along really helped my three teenagers understand the complex history. He also brought a book and explained all about the Sistine Chapel, which was so helpful. Be prepared to be outdoors and to walk. We loved it; but not all may be able to handle the heat and walking in the middle of the summer. Enjoy!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Laura! All the best to you and your family. Fabio P.

Fabio is probably the most knowledgable tour guide I've ever dealt with. His impeccable attention to detail and deep thoughtful explanation related to all aspects of history, not just covering Roman Empire but from ancient Egyptians to modern day Italy, is beyond impressive. If you are looking for a guide just to find the best gift shop or pizza in Rome, Fabio can do that for sure, you would be wasting your opportunity to truly learn from such a wonderful guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ilya! I'm going to blush! Thank you so much for you kind words, it is indeed a pleasure to read such a wonderful comment on my tours. All the best to you and your family. Fabio P.
Fabio is an art historian and art curator - who else would you want as your guide around the Colosseum and Vatican? Our family of eight ranging in age from 19 to 50+ years were all enthralled by his engaging tour of these vast areas. His highlights were excellent! And his English was perfect - also with a great sense of humour! The use of audio phones certainly made it easier in the crowds to hear everything he said. A well- organised tour of complex sites - time flew and we learned so much!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! Happy new year!!

What better way to see Rome than with an art historian. Fabio is a super guide. Besides his superior knowledge he communicates and guides well. We strongly recommend him.

We could not have been any more pleased with our Full Day private tour of Rome conducted by the easy going and most knowledgeable, Fabio. His expertise with regard to history and the arts puts him securely on the highest level of tour guides - especially working in a city like Rome where the amount a good guide needs know is mind boggling to a layman. He did a terrific job, especially, considering the excessive crowds we encountered on a religious holiday for the Roman Catholic Church. BRAVO

Our tour of Rome and the Colosseum with Fabio could not have been better. We had asked Fabio to modify his normal tour somewhat and show us a few "off the beaten path" treasures that Rome has to offer which he enthusiastically did. His knowledge of the art and history of Rome from the Republic, through the Empire, and to the present day was impressive, his english impeccable, and his love for his native culture endearing. Be sure to ask him to show you some of the underground history of his great city.

Excellent tour. Very knowledgable and personable. Would highly recommend and when we return to Rome I will definitely be booking another tour with Fabio.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Paula and Mike. I'm really glad you had a good time. Looking forward to seeing you here again.
We had a wonderful tour with Fabio in Rome. He met us at our hotel and we proceeded to walk to the Colosseum and Forum, and then to the Pantheon. After lunch we traveled by taxi to the Vatican where we had a tour of the Vatican Museum,Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica. Fabio was very knowledgeable, flexible and well organized. We would not hesitate to recommend him. Words of caution: Be very careful with your valuables especially at the Rome train station where I had my wallet stolen the next day.
We would personally want to thank Fabio for his services on our recent tour in Rome. He is a highly experienced guide who knew how take us through the highlights of Rome in a very enjoyable day. He is knowledgeable and well rounded, being highly easy to relate to. We learned lot about Rome, it's culture, and people - for which we would like to thank Fabio.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. I hope to see you again here in Rome.

If you have limited time in Rome, book Fabio immediately. He was able to expertly guide me thru the highlights of ancient Rome and the Vatican with deep knowledge, humor, and flexibility - all while setting a perfect pace. I appreciated his wide range of historical, cultural and artistic insights that for me, captured the huge sweep of Rome's history. I also liked that he stopped to show works at the Vatican that most other tourist blow by in their rush to get to the Sistine Chappell. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Doug, Thanks so much for your great review and rating. All the best! Fabio
