We enjoyed out walking tour if some Rome highlights, but we weren't the only ones who had issues with the tour company. We (and several others on our tour) weren't picked up when/where we were supposed to be, even though we'd arrived 10 minutes early for the pickup. We called the company, after waiting half an hour for them, and... More

The trip themselves were great and out of the 5 tour guides we had Claudia and Sasha were the ones who you could tell loved their job and cared about their customers having a great time. We also had Francesca for the Florence trip which at times she seemed kind of lost and that trip seemed to have been very... More

Booked a guided tour of Colosseum and Forum Romanum just a few days ahead online (via GetYourTrip) and everything worked out perfectly. Instructions on where to start, setup et c worked very good and the guide had a lot of knowledge. Only drawback is that so many people choose 'skip-the-line' so there are periodically lines anyway to get in. This... More

Words can't express how much I enjoyed this tour. From the start our guide for the next five days entertained us, looked after our every need and more. Her knowledge of the country, history, culture was incredible. Not only that, each separate part of this tour had a local guide to gives us just a little bit more. The accommodation,... More

There are any number of pushy hawkers selling tickets for hop on and off bus tours in Rome. While I can't speak for others, I can say that this one was sorely disappointing and inferior to similar tours we have enjoyed in other cities. Besides the pushiest and high prices, the first bus we were in had fewer than 1... More

A wonderful 4 days around the coast of Amalfi. Everything organised perfectly by Carrani tour group. Tour guides very organised and approachable, friendly and helpful. They are knowledgeable about the areas and enabled us to visit areas that get very busy eg the Blue Grotto. The handouts clearly stated our times for pick up, hotels etc and made the whole... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
