Francesca was our private guide for the Vatican tour and St. Peter's basilica. She engaged our two teen boys throughout the tour and they learned a great deal that day. Francesca's approach was fun and personal - we were so glad we had chosen to go with your company for this tour. Highly recommend!

This waking tour was great. Our guide, Francesca, was amazingly friendly and very informative. There were no boring parts on the tour and the walking was totally bearable (I am pretty unfit). An absolute must if want a hightlight tour of Rome. I'm glad I didn't go in the busy tourist months!

Massimilliano and Barbara were excellent guides with encyclopedic knowledge and charming presentations. I will definitely call again on my next trip to Rome.

We took an eastern Mediterranean Sea cruise and had only one day to visit Rome. With so much to see and do in Rome, with our limited time we wanted to take full advantage. Private Tours of Rome (Linda) arranged the tour for us, picking us at the port, transporting us to our hotel, meeting up with our personnel tour... More

We booked a private, full day Best of Rome tour and that is what we got! Our guide was Massimiliano. To say he was knowledgable would be an understatement. Our tour (which started at the Colosseum in the pouring rain) was given with enthusiasm and great detail. The great thing about Massimiliano's presentation style is that he was extremely informative... More

We booked a half day tour of Rome underground and a full day Best of Rome tour. Our tour guide for both was Vera. I can not say enough about Vera, she was FABULOUS !! Vera made the trip to Rome very enjoyable and informative. I would highly recommend this tour group especially Vera.

This is my second trip to Rome, and I wish I had used this company before. The lines were a breeze and being able to see the Vatican without a guide allowed more freedom and time to explore e art and appreciate the experience.

Best decision we made for our trip to Rome. Our tour guide Simone illustrated history with enthusiasm while making us a part of the story as he told it. The prices were fair as discussed through our email correspondence. The tour was started on time and finished on time without leaving out any important details. Would highly recommend this to...

We booked a private tour of Rome for a family of 5 during our Med cruise. What I liked about Paolo's tour package was it allowed you to modify the standard the pre-set locations. We set up exactly the tour we wanted and were greeted by our tour guide along the ship on the pier. The driver spoke English perfectly... More

Staying in Vatican / Borgo

Neighborhood Profile
Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighborhood which acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as visitors vie for elbow room, or stand in line for a visit. Once the sun sets, the neighborhood is transformed into a quiet and picturesque hamlet.
