My tour with Giovanni was extremely informative and fun. As a student of archaeology who has visited Rome several times before, I was amazed at how much new information Giovanni provided during the tour (and en route from one site to the next!). He highlighted the most interesting features of Basilica San Clemente- most of which were not included on... More

While visiting the Basilica San Clemente, Giovanni provided myself and couple of friends with what was one of if not the best tour I've experienced. His extensive knowledge of the history, architecture and artwork of the site was exceptional, and our discussions before and after the tour made it clear that he possesses this same knowledge and passion for the...

While planning our 4-day stay in Rome, I decided to go with a private tour over a semi or group tour because I wanted to "see it all" (my first visit to Rome) ... and boy did I make the right decision! From the start, Giovanni was excellent in communication via email. Despite our 6-hour time difference, he always replied... More

We had 2 separate days of touring with Giovanni in Rome. He is a fabulous tour guide, super knowledgeable, courteous, friendly, easy to talk to. I learned more about the areas he showed us, than all the studying I had done on the internet, on TV, or through books. He went at our pace, while still being sure we saw... More

I found Giovanni very professional and knowledgeable about all the areas we were taken too. He was not only conscientious of our being able to see and here everything we were shown, but attentive to how far we could go and what we could do physically. We left with an understanding and respect for Italy and rome.

We took tours of the Colosseum & Forum, Vatican museum & Basilica, and a walking tour of Rome with Giovanni....each tour was about 3+ hours long. We were only in Rome for 4 days, so we wanted to make the most of our time by taking a private tour. Giovanni was the perfect choice. He was professional, on time, knowledgeable... More

The tour to the Vatican and to the Forum and etc. was eye opening. Giovanni's knowledge of the history and architecture was first rate. Personally, I found the Forum, Palatine Hill, and the Colosseum more interesting than expected. With Giovani's insight you could imagine what life in Rome was like.

Hello, and thank you very much. The Vatican and the Colosseum/Forum are the most complex sights in the city of Rome, not only for their size and density but also because of the crowds. I'm glad that Roads to Rome was able to provide a good service, giving you not only enough information but making you have an idea how... More

Roads to Rome provided an excellent mix of information and entertainment for our university students. Going in the side entrance without having to stand in the lines was wonderful. We highly recommend this tour and hope to be able to use their services each year!

Hello Cynthia, and thank you for your review. I know that this time I was only in charge of the organization of your tour, leaving your groups to other guides, but I'll do my best to actually guide you in person next year, since you seemed a very interesting and fun group to have. A presto, Giovanni More

-My experience with Roads to Rome was fantastic, especially with Giovanni. Since I am 20 years old and studying abroad for a month, Giovanni was not only incredibly intelligent, but he was very friendly and made me feel comfortable even though I was by myself (not to mention I didn't know ANY Italian). -I chose to write this review a...

Ciao Corbin, and thank you very much for your kind review.

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.
