A full-day private tour of the most famous archaeological sites in Rome
If you are looking for an in-dept tour of archaeological Rome and you want to experience Rome slowly, this is the right tour for you!
A licenced English speaking driver will meet you at the port of Civitavecchia to bring you to the historical city center of Rome by a modern A/C viano.
There, you will find me waiting for you for a 5 hours and 30 minutes walking tour (lunch break included) to the top 7 Ancient Roman monuments and historical squares.
This is NOT a "hit-and-run" tour! I will guide you to get to know ancient Roman places, to live and "taste" them slowly and deeply, sharing my experience and knowledge as archaeologist and Roman-born and raised.

Valentina gave us a fantastic experience. She's not only extremely well versed in ancient Rome history, but with her enthusiasm she makes the past come alive. I cannot recommend her highly enough, and I will definitely try to book her again whenever we return to discover more of Rome.
