We visited to The Roman Ruins with Marisa was an archeologist. This unique knowledge helped us better understand our excursion. We also visited the Sistine Chapel (the no-line tickets) were terrific as it rained terribly that day. We also visited the coliseum. Just an excellent guide.

As an experienced user of private guides, I can be very very picky. Well, I picked a winner this time. Marissa is knowledgeable, friendly, has a great sense of humor, and was worth every penny we spent on her services. We used her for two 5 hour tours, and were very happy we did. You will be, too.

My husband and I booked Marisa for two morning tours, there is no way we would have been given so much interesting information if we hadn't found this wonderful lady. Marisa is also an archeologist who excavates the ancient sites in Rome, you can't get better than that! She lives in Rome so she can point you in the right... More

We are a family of three (Mom, Dad & teenage son) from Ontario Canada. We travel often, and are very interested in learning about the history of the places we visit. For this reason we like to hire private guides whenever possible. We had the good fortune to be able to hire Marisa as our guide on our recent trip... More

Marisa made visiting Rome a pleasure and easy. My husband and 76 year old mom visited Rome in July during a heat wave. Thank goodness we had Marisa, she knew the best time of day to visit the historic sights and was instrumental in getting us through the lines. She is extremely knowledgeable about the history of Rome and how... More

Marisa is an archaeologist who has lived her entire life in Rome. She walked us through Vatican museums, the Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's sharing important facts and little known anecdotes that brought new appreciation for what we thought we already knew so much about. But her love of her ancient city brought life to what might be viewed as... More

Initially my wife and I were going to do a group tour of the forum. Since I preferred to focus on certain aspects of the forum, more than others plus I always have lots of questions, I looked for a private guide and chose Marisa based on her trip advisor reviews. Not only did our tour focus on exactly what... More

We booked Marisa for two days, one full day walking tour to see just about everything in Rome from Spanish Steps to Pantheon to the Colosseum to the Forum and a ton of stuff in between.

I was in contact with Marisa before our trip to Rome for my husbands 50th and daughters 21st this April.
