A tour with a viewing of the Vatican and Sistine Chapel are essential on a visit to Rome, and I am pleased we have done it. However, our tour guide on this tour, although very knowledgeable, was difficult to understand at times, and talked incessantly. This was an english tour but when the guide doesn't speak english in an understandable... More

Dear Client , I'm very surprised by your comment , as I believe a good guide has to give explanations of what you're seeing , and being the Vatican museum very vast , the guide does not have the time to first give you all explanations and then give clients extra minutes in the same location - Otherwise the tour...

Avventure Bellissime provided a very knowledgeable guide, Francesca, for a tour of the Vatican museum, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's. It was less than 10 people which made it possible to ask questions and time for good responses. She had lots of information that made the history of the Vatican come to life. I have had previous tours in other... More

Highly Recommended! I was pleasantly surprised to find that the tour was not conducted on a coach with 50 other people and was only 8 people travelling in a comfortable people Van/people mover. After being collected from our hotel we headed towards Pompeii stopping for morning tea along the way. The Pomeii Tour was relatively quick, as this was the... More

This is the tour group we used for our recent trip to Italy. We had the pleasure of meeting one of the owners, Monica. A true joy. They took care of all our transportation between the airport/train stations and our stays in Rome, Siena, Florence and Cinque Terre. They were also responsible for 7 semiprivate tours and stays in Rome,... More

My husband and I took the ancient walking tour of Rome and although it was pretty hot (and alot of walking!) Francesca made it SO worth it. Not only did we learn so much but she answered all of ours and the groups questions expertly. The group was no more than 8 people. Perfect size. She used books and iPad... More

We booked the 3 different tours of Rome and absolutely loved Francesca. She was simply outstanding as a guide, as she has the reference books, iPad pictures, and detailed history for every single historical site we visited. If you can get Francesca, you will not be disappointed. We especially loved her commentary on the Colosseum and Vatican, and totally enjoyed... More

Our guide ,Sergio, was an amazing guide with a wealth of knowledge and an ease in negotiating the colleseum and other ruins. At first he was a little hard to understand, as he spoke quickly and so fervently on his subjects...but we got use to it and loved listening to the history of Rome. He had many interesting books, maps... More

We had a wonderful guide Francesca who was so knowledgable and nice and we couldn't have asked for more from her! She was so great to make sure we were in the shade as she explained things and even made sure we knew where to go for lunch and walked us there after the tour was over ...I would highly... More

We did the ancient Rome walking tour, the Vatican tour and the catacombs tour. Our guide for all three was Barbara. She was very knowledgeable and could answer all the questions thrown her way. I will highly recommend doing the ancient Rome walking tour, without the background story and her picture book showing how it was originally it is just... More
