Giovanni is an entertaining guide who provides a wealth of information in a friendly and interesting manner. He is very accommodating, flexible, and always arrives punctually which I did not expect in Rome. He is a cultured man who offers a great service

A private tour sounds like an indulgence, but a trip to Rome without one, can be confusing and overwhelming. Traveling with children 10&12 might have been challenging, but Giovanni kept them interested throughout all the sights of Rome! No lines, no audio guides and no tall adults in front made all the difference. We could tour at our pace, stop... More

A three day 18yr old birthday surprise weekend for my son, was made all the more fantastic thanks to Giovanni. Giovanni picked us up each day from our hotel and his passion instantly jumped into action as we headed to our pre booked tour for the day. No opportunity was missed to provide my sons, wife and I with a... More

My husband and I traveled to Rome in November. We took 4- hour tour of Colosseum , Forum and Plantine Hil with a private tour guide -Alessandro from “ROADS TO ROME” and he was very passionate and knowledgeable and really brought the history to life as he guided us through the tour. As there’s so much to see and learn... More

Gioanni Vergineo is a well informed, flexible and fun guide. Seeing Tivoli & Hadrian's Villa through his eyes was a perfect introduction to both sites. Really, we could not have asked for a better education of the arts and antiquities in Rome. Our only regret was that he did not have more free time.

Not having been in Rome for many many years I sought out a tour guide with a bit of trepidation but after some research I found Giovanni of Roads to Rome Tours. We focused on one tour that day – the Vatican and its museums. And the result… my wife and I could not have been happier. It’s not just... More

My husband and I traveled to Rome in November. The history of Rome runs throughout centuries and we were not comfortable exploring this city without professional guidance. Giovanni kindly agreed to rescue us. We spent amazing three days with Giovanni taking different trips across the city. We also took the trip to Tivoli to visit both Hadrian's Villa and Villa...

Hello, and thank you for your kind review. I'm glad you enjoyed my tour so much: it's always hard to make the clients happy when the Vatican is so crowded, but I'm glad that you appreciated my efforts and were able to appreciate the treasures of the Renaissance that we saw.

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.
