Valentina S.

Roma, Italy

Explore the Eternal City on a private tour with a professional Roman archaeologist!

I am a licensed Tour Guide and I really love to share my knowledge and passion for Ancient Rome with others!
Since 2003 I am working as field director on several scientific and emergency excavations downtown and in the province of Rome.
As I have a deep knowledge of the Roman archaeological sites and museums, I think I would be a great tour guide for those who want to understand ancient Roman architecture, art and social life.
It will be my pleasure to guide you to the world famous monuments - as the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and the Pantheon - or to show you hidden treasures less known - as Villa dei Quintili on the Appian Way, the Bath of Caracalla and Ostia Antica.
Visit these archaeological sites with the eyes of a local archeologist and get to know the secrets and stories of every corner of Ancient Rome! I guarantee you will have an unforgettable experience!

Please, note: all my tours can be customized. If you are interested in visiting a specific archaeological site, please send me a message and I will make an itinerary just for you!

Valentina was an awesome guide, very knowledgeable & passionate about history. There seemed to be nothing she didn't know. She also handled the different ages of our group very well, particularly the teenagers. Would highly recommend
