Denis Pasolini arrived at my hotel a bit early for my evening tour of the Vatican and I am so grateful he did. He used that extra time to take me to the Palladium, as well as another famous square and fountain (spaced on the name but it was beautiful). The tour of the Vatican

Dear friend, It's more than great to hear you enjoyed our time together so much, it was so nice touring with you and sharing the fascinating stories of this amazing city! You got the point when mentioning that touring with a private guide provides an extra ease and comfort to your holidays: it would be sad to wander among the streets and monuments of Rome without unveiling the countless stories, secrets and anecdotes they hide. Here's what we private guides are here for: to make your Roman movie set come true! Grazie! Denis

I can't tell you how awesome our private tour was for us. Roberta was phenomenal and I would highly highly recommend her - she was so passionate, moved as fast or as slow as we wanted, had so much information that we would not have learned in a larger group or going on our own.

Katie was such a wonderful private tour guide. To start, my husband and I totally lost track of what day it was in Rome. Katie kindly messaged us 5 minutes before we were supposed to meet at the Vatican Museum entrance and we were still basically in bed. <insert anxiety attack>

Our guide was Serena, she met us at the hotel and we took a quick taxi ride to the Vatican. We moved through the entrance process quickly. She seemed to know everyone from the security guards to the other guides. She has a wealth of knowledge and listened closely to our

Ciao and grazie mille for your kind feedback! It was a pleasure to tour with you and your wife :) Furthermore, the Vatican Museums by night are simply amazing and I highly recommend this visit since the Museums are not overcrowded...there's a very different atmosphere inside! I am so happy to read that you are satisfied with the service and I really hope to meet you soon on your next trip to Rome! A presto! Serena
