For over a year I planned a 10 day trip to Rome to see sites that I had missed on my 3 day sojourn 30 years ago. Joy of Rome (co-owned by Francesca and Simone) turned out to make this highly anticipated trip truly a joy. Initially, I had planed on 2-3 days of one-on-one guided touring, as these sorts... More

I just returned from 4 days in Rome, 3 of them guided by Marta. If you are looking for a guide, look no further, as she was absolutely the best. My only regret is that I did not plan to use her for the Borghese Gallery tour; I had no background to fully appreciate all that is there. She is... More

My sister and I spent 4 hours with Marta at the Vatican museums and two hours with her at the Borghese Gallery. It was definitely money well spent. She met us at the Cafe Vaticano right across from the Museum entrance and immediately began telling us all about the history of the Vatican. She is so knowledgeable and never condescends... More

We booked a 4-hour afternoon tour of the Ancient sites including the Colosseum/Palatine Hill/Forum and Pantheon with Marta Marsili. What a delight she is! So personable, enthusiastic about her city and knowledgeable beyond belief! She was kind enough to meet us at our hotel and accompany us in a taxi to the Colosseum and took into account my wish to...

Last June 25, I was able to be part of the many who wanted to see the Pope up close and personal. I was very lucky to have been given passes for the Pope's last public appearance at the Basilica for the year. And like a good Girl Scout that I am, I brought along everything I thought I'd need:...

We had one and a half days to tour Rome and our tour guide Marta Marsili helped make it spectacular! She helped us plan an itinerary of key sites in Rome and we were not disappointed. The Vatican, Pantheon, Colosseum, etc. as well as great suggestions for lunch and dinner while in Rome were first rate as well. Her knowledge... More

Marta guided us through Rome for three days this January. I traveled with my elderly sister who had knee problems, restricting our mobility and speed. Marta accommodated our needs perfectly. She chose paths that were as smooth as possible, found sitting places along the way to rest, and adjusted the speed without making us feel that we were holding things... More

We spent 2 GREAT days with Marta walking around Rome. Our first day was spent at the Colosseum, the Forum and the Ancient Ruins. Marta provided much insight and history of the grounds and what we were seeing, Day 2 with her was spent at the Vatican, learning the history of the Vatican and the artwork that is there. Marta...

Rome was one of our stops on a 12-day Mediterranean cruise. We wanted to make the most of our 10 hours in port and show our kids as much of the city as possible. So, we hired Marta to take our group of 10 (2 families of 5 travelling together) to see the highlights. Ahead of time she answered numerous... More

My wife and I were on our honeymoon in May 2013, and found Marta Marsili through a friend. We had been to Rome before but felt the private tour might add more value to understanding what we were looking at. While a few hundred euros for the afternoon, we greatly enjoyed our tour of the Vatican Museums and St. Peter's... More
