Francesca Maria C.

rome, RM, Italy

Hello, I'm Francesca Maria, and I am an Archaeologist and Qualified Tour Guide in Rome and Vatican.

I've a bachelor's degree in Conservation of Cultural Heritage and a master degree in Cultural and Archaeological Heritage at the University of Rome.

I was born and raised here, so I am 100% local! Before becoming a tour guide I was working as an archaeologist in several archaeological sites. My archaeological background brings a unique perspective to my walking tours of Rome. With me you will discover more about this beautiful city, its art and history, the fascinating historical sites, the hidden gems, Romans and the Roman way of life.

I can customize tours according to your interests. I specialize in private tours for small groups of all ages, including families with younger children. I have children myself, and I am happy to work with children and families as well as adults.

My tours are all private, so the visit will be exclusively for you and can be tailored to your wishes and physical abilities. I will be happy to help you to organize the perfect guided tour. I will be your local friend in Rome, and give you suggestions on restaurants, shopping, exhibitions and things to do.

I look forward to bringing Rome to life for you!

A Recent Review of this guide

Francesca was awesome. She taught us so much. My daughter also loved the tour as she had just learned about ancient Roman history. Francesca was knowledgeable, friendly and her English was great. She was able to answer our questions and keep the tour interesting. Which can be hard with 13 year old girls. Tha
