Francesca gave a wonderful tour. She engaged well with out 13 year old grandson, she gave interesting information, her English is excellent, and she knew many shortcuts to help avoid crowds. We were very pleased and highly recommend her.

Francesca was great! We could not have toured the Vatican and Sistine Chapel without her. Francesca's knowledge was superb and we did not have a lot of time so she expertly guided us through the crowds. We would recommend Francesca 100%!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Roseann, Jeff and Brent. Grazie mille! Hope to see you and your family soon in Rome for new adventures! Ciao! Francesca

We highly recommend taking a tour with Francesca. She provided a lot of information and presented it in a fun and interesting way. In addition to being an exceptionally knowledgeable and personable guide, Francesca was incredibly attentive to our mobility issues. One member of our party has standing/walking limitations, and Francesca made sure we had access to chairs whenever possible. Thank you, Francesca, for a fascinating morning and for all your assistance.

We loved our tour through the Vatican Museum and Saint Peter's Basilica. Francesca was an amazing guide! We learned so much...and she took her time. We never felt rushed, and she gave us some great tips to navigate through the Vatican City. Great tour and guide!!

Donna AhernUnited States
Francesca was absolutely wonderful! We really enjoyed our second tour with her, our first being the day before at the Colosseum and Roman Forum. Nothing compares to a private tour with a knowledgable tour guide. Francesca knew many important details and history that she shared with use throughout the tour. She guided us through the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peters Basilica, stopping at important points to share information. She is also a real nice person!

Francesca was a knowledgeable guide who really enhanced our visit. Her commentary was excellent. My husband is in a wheelchair and she was also fabulous at getting us through the crowds and also showing us galleries when they were not as busy. I will definitely contact her again when in Rome and suggest her to friends.
Heidi CorteseUnited States
This was a great tour of the Vatican and all the history. So much to see and so little time. We were able to get quite a bit of history and information from Francesca and it was personalized to us. Very helpful in getting around and making sure we were reunited with our taxi. She showed us local areas in addition to the tour and explained everything in detail to our group of six. Excellent guide.
Terry MooneyUnited States
We spent three mornings with Francesca. It was like taking a class with a great teacher. We highly enjoyed all 12 hours or so and would recommend her to anyone. Book her early . She is GOOD.. We went to the Colloeseum, Roman Forum, Paladium, The Vatican and the Museum and the Borghese Gallery. All must sees when in Rome.

Henry StoverUnited States
Fantastic young lady. Very passionate who ensures you truly experience the entire atmosphere.
Francesca was a wonderful tour guide! Couldn't recommend her enough. Knowledgeable, informative and helpful. We had our six year old son on the tour and she would try to make it as interesting as possible for him by pointing out the animals and other fun facts in the sculptures and art. The "skip the line" options was the only way to go if you are in Rome for a limited time. I would highly recommend anyone to use her when In Rome.

We toured with Francesca for 2 consecutive days. The first day we did the colosseum, palatine hill and roman forum. The second day was the the vatican. Francesca was super nice, on time, very accomedating, patient and very knowledgeable. She is an archeologist so she offered great amount of historical informations and references. She also was able to get us through the lines much faster. Thank you so much Francesca... we hope to see you again very soon.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Manal, it has been a real pleasure to meet you and spend two days together! It's easy to do my job when I meet people like you and your friends. I hope to see you again very soon! Ciao!

John HutchisonUnited States
Our guide Francesca, was excellent. With only an afternoon to explore the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's Basilica, Francesca was artful in directing our tour to wonderful highlights in each area. She made what could have been an overwhelming experience into a truly memorable one especially in preparing us for the Sistine Chapel. And she pointed out lovely details that made our tour feel quite personal even among the huge throngs. There was ample time for photos; our tour was never rushed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: John, thank you for your great review! I hope to se you again and show you more of Rome! Grazie mille!
Laura ClarkUnited States
