We added two days in Rome on to the end of a tour and wanted to squeeze in as much as possible in one day. We took the Vatican tour in the morning and the Emperors tour in the afternoon. Excellent tours both! The guides were friendly and very knowledgeable. Our tour groups were small - 5 in the morning... More

We recently went on the Rome in a day tour, which was excellent! Our tour guide, Andrea, was so incredibly knowledgable. He fielded questions on a variety of different topics, and tailored the information to our interests as we asked questions. The company was very professional,

We did both tours and loved both, unfortunately 3 hours is just not enough time to really see the vatican museum. Our personal guide Carolina was a godsend as she managed to really get us to see all the highlights in this short time . She really knew her stuff. Our walking guide Simone was brilliant, so informative and well... More

This tour was suppose to be for 7 people but 4 were late so it started out as almost a private tour. Cindy, our tour guide was knowledgable and interesting. She whisked us through the entry procedure and took us to all the important sections of the Vatican. She showed us important aspects of the collections and communicated what we... More

After experiencing the ArtViva tours in Firenze in March, which so enhanced my visit, I wanted to do the same in Rome, which I visited over Easter. Unfortunately, there are no group tours until mid April. I emailed ArtViva and asked re options to visit the Vatican Museum. There were only 2 days during my stay when it would be... More

Our tour guide was gifted! The tour was Heaven sent and a great value! Artviva must very carefully screen and select their guides; they are ALL fabulous!

Simone provided our family the best tour I have ever taken. 6 hours of brilliance about ancient Rome, it's history, it's politics, its energy. Perfect pace. Simone was extremely knowledgeable and no balony answers to our questions. We would love to go back and tour with him for a month. This tour was worth every euro.

Simone took us on a tour of the Colosseum and surrounding areas for about 4 hours. He was great and we enjoyed the passion he felt for his city and its history. We highly recommend Art Viva (we used them in Venice, Florence and Rome) if you want a guide to show you the best of the area or museum... More

Art Viva provided us with amazingly unique experiences. In Florence & Rome. Our tour leaders' genuine passion about their roles, engagement with guests, was highly evident and 'history' along with 'daily life' in Italy involved us in a very distinctive wonderful day. We just want to return!

I loved the tour. Very informative. Conducted at the right pace. Outstanding guide. No wonder RIck Steve's recommends Artviva! I am returning with 4 family members in November and we will all take the tour. I am excited to see what else I can learn.
