He is probably the funniest and most knowledgable tour guide I've ever had the experience in meeting. he spoke about all the most important things in the forums and how they were constructed.

I can't possibly say enough good things about Alexander and Dolce Vita Rome... We did his tour of the old forum after coming straight from the Colosseum, and it was absolutely time and money extremely well spent. My degree is in Italian Studies, and to find someone else who is just as (or probably even more) passionate about ancient Rome... More

Really a very enjoyable tour with Alex. Some off the beaten path attractions and a satisfying amount of not so well known history, which I won't get into here. A very professional looking guide who seems as intrigued as any interested tourist should be. Helpful in answering questions and references to other places to see and eat, and day-trip to.... More

Went to Rome for only 2 days and stumbled upon Alex's tour... I'm not a fan of taking tours on vacations - I usually like to find my own way around a new city, but with the limited time, we figured this would be our best option. The tour was surprisingly fun for me. Alex was very knowledgable and took... More

We took the mysteries of Rome tour with Alexander last Sunday (3 May). We are often reluctant to do tours that are not well defined, but a friend . . . . Our friend was spot on. The tour was off the beaten path but highlighted locations and events in Rome's past that you would NEVER find on your own.... More

Alex hosted a tour of the Palatino which enthralled our entire family. The kids (10, 8, 5) loved the sword fighting tips and easily connected & understood the ancient history of Rome through his stories & language etymology. It was so wonderful we jumped at the chance to join him on his mysteries of Rome tour in the afternoon. Both... More

What a fabulous time we had tonight, exploring those places in Rome we would never have found on our own ~ even if we knew they existed. Alex is a master story teller who brings Roman history alive, particularly as it pertains to his favourite Italian artist, Michelangelo. All that and an espresso to boot.

By far the best tour we had was the Secrets of Rome tour by Alex- he was the best! We met him from a tour at the Colosseum and told us about the secrets tour. It was so cool to see things you would never normally be able to touch and see. I won't ruin it but he showed us... More

We had two tours with Alex, First the at the Forum which was really fun and where we found out about his Mystery tour, we wasn't sure we wanted to do an evening tour but now so glad we did - it was awesome, so many hidden gems I've missed in passed trips to Rome. Alex is a fun guy... More

Staying in Monti

Neighborhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
