Flaminia has a lovely, engaging personality and did a great job keeping our kids interested and engaged in the tour. She made sure to tailor things to the level we were interested in and also provided a great front-end overview of what we were going to see that gave good context and meaning to the tour.

Flaminia was AMAZING!! She was able to engage our teens in the history of Ancient Rome by using her incredible knowledge and pulling visual guides from her backpack! Our group included ages from 12 to 78 years old and we all left the tour feeling that we learned something new (even those of us who had been here before). Thank you for a wonderful morning!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! Your teens were great, in particular, Erin with a lot of smart questions and congrats on your dad, I thought he was younger, by the way, he's been strong. Hope your mum recovered. Hugs to all of you

We used Flaminia for our family of 4 to tour the Vatican, including the sistine chappel and St Peter's Basilica. Flamina is sweet, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and helped up see the major sites while avoiding lines and crowds as much as possible. She gave us a lot of history and background that helped us undertand what we were looking at. Having the skip the line tickets is a must. We would certainly use her again and would recommend her highly to others.

Flaminia was knowledgable, patient and amazing! She took us through the Vatican Museum at our pace, explaining everything and ensuring we were "ready" to fully understand and appreciate the Sistine Chapel. Her hand-outs ensured that once inside the Chapel, we knew what we were looking at and she never rushed us so we could spend as long as we needed admiring "everything" in the museum and chapel. Stopping at the highlights was key, and she answered every question we threw at her!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Tabatha, thank you for the nice words. It was great (even for me) to spend such a long time in the Sistine chapel with you, I was admired by your deep understanding. Say hello to all the family and take care

Flaminia was an outstanding tour guide! Her first reply to my request contained a detailed proposal that perfectly matched what I requested. During our tour she provided so much detail and took us to all of the places we wanted to visit. She took time to provide the history and background for each location, and she was so accommodating of our needs. If I get to go back to Rome I will be contacting her again for our next tour!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Anne, thank you for your nice review. Hope you all had a good time in Rome and as well in Latina :)

Flaminia was an amazing tour guide! We wanted to see Rome in the time we had from our time off a cruise ship. Flaminia made that happen! We saw Rome in a day! We started at the Vatican. Seeing the Sistine Chapel and all the collections leading up to it, St. Peter's Basilica ( where Pope Francis happened to walk within feet of us) . Then to the Trevi Fountain, the Coliseum, the Pantheon, with stops for lunch and wine. She was extremely informative and interesting. She is outgoing and enthusiastic!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. I cannot take credit for the meeting, was thanks to the toilette pit stop :)

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.
