Me and a group of friends have spent a wonderful sunday on the Palatin Hill, in the Roman Forum and the Colosseum accompanied by Giovanni and his fascinating reconstruction's stories. He had been the perfect guide! As I am a Roman architect I believed I knew much about the history and the architecture of the place, but since Giovanni's tour... More

I had the pleasure to visit the Palatine hill, the Roman forum and the Colosseum guided by Giovanni during a sunny day in January 2016. We met in the morning in front of the Palatine hill entrance, ready to have a very interesting journey into the past. Even though we knew that visit was going to be amazing, Giovanni made... More

Rome is a beautiful city, but very touristy so the lines and crowd at the Coliseum and Vatican City could be unpleasant and overwhelming. Giovanni made a big difference to our holiday, (a family of 6 traveling together) by first, getting fast-pass ticket (so we didn't have to queue very long). His knowledge and explanation of the Roman history, culture,... More

Giovanni guided us in the Museum of Crypta Balbi and in the Church of San Clemente. He has shown to own a deep knowledge of Rome and its Topography from the Republic to the Middle Ages. He is not only a very competent guide but also a very nice and friendly guy, with whom we spent a wonderful day! Thanks... More

I did both the the Colosseum and roman forum tour as well the Vatican and Sistine chapel. It was my first time to Rome and I could not have had a better day. Giovanni was a fantastic guide. I felt like I was educated to the fullest extent possible. I would not hesitate for a minute to hire him again... More

As we were in the States planning our trip, Giovanni was just a name of a person we did not know. But through emails we were convinced that he was a good person. After we met him we were very glad that we signed up with him for the Rome tour. We were one couple out of the four that... More

We could not have picked a worse day to visit Rome, but wait! Giovanni Vergineo, our guide, made it the best day of our 13 day Princess Cruise to the grand Mediterranean. We were in Rome on a Sunday, which means the Sistine Chapel and Vatican museum were closed. On top of that, it was free day at the Coliseum... More

I had a wonderful experience on a Roads to Rome day tour with Giovanni. We traveled outside the crowds of the city center to the peaceful and picturesque countryside near Rome. We visited some "dead cities"- cities abandoned ages ago, where nature has reclaimed the buildings. Getting off the beaten tourist path to see something different was great, and the... More

Orvieto is a small Etruscan town not too far from Rome, away from the crazy crowds of the Eternal City. Beautiful landscapes, awesome food and lots and lots of history. Giovanni, the tour guide, was perfect. He's fluent in English and absolutely passionate about his job. Being an archaeologist he knows his onions. Ask him anything, he'll know the answer.... More

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.
