    Education of Colosseum
    Our guide was amazing! There is a lot of information. A lot of walking. (Wear good shoes). If you love archeology you will be in heaven. For those who are not that into it…it might be a bit too long of a tour.

    Book him before he is full! Amazing…
    What an amazing couple of hours spent touring the highlights of Rome. Our tour guide LUCA is one of a kind. Passionate, funny, knowledgeable, kind. His passion for the history of Rome was infectious as was his knowledge of the history of our language and the politics of the day. Truely an inspiring experience. When trying to be funny I noted that our great actor Russell Crowe (yes a kiwi we know) had made the Colosseum famous through the movie Gladiator, he pulled out his phone and showed us a picture. “Oh you mean my friend Russell” he quipped. Of course the great actor would have chosen LUCA when he returned to the site of that epic movie in 2022 to get a real sense of the drama and majesty of that place. Well done and thank you, for the enduring memories.

    Architecture, history, politics, and the extravagance and bad behavior of emperors!
    5 stars! Elisa's knowledge passion for history is clear, and she is a former archeologist. If you're going to spend 3-4 hours together, it may as well be fun too! She loves questions, and weaves together the story of the buildings, the politics, the people, and geography together so well. She can cover the standard Q&A of course, but she also was able to discuss the Roman society, the conquest of Egypt, Cleopatra, the extravagance of the emperors, if Nero really did fiddle while Rome burnt, and why the emperors usually didn't survive too long.

    3 Hour express tour with Luca of the colosseum and Sistine Chapel. He is an amazing guide and very knowledgeable!
    3 hours express tour was perfect for us. Luca our guide was super fun and very knowledgeable. He went out of his way to make the tour very special and personal. As my daughter Alex says “ He is the best guide ever”! And we have done many guides around the world. I Highly recommend this company. Elisa is the owner. She is very organized and wonderful as well.

    An unforgettable experience with many fascinating stories.
    Elisa opened our eyes to the history of Ancient Rome. She is an expert in her field and passionate about the history she shared. With her depth of knowledge, she paired so many stories with the sites we visited. Elisa tailored the tour to our 10 and 15 year old children and managed to keep us all engaged and fascinated. We have toured many cities with numerous guides over the years and Roma Experience is the absolute best!

    “Don’t do anything in Italy without speaking to Elisa first!”
    We travelled to Rome in June of 2022 and were given Elisa’s contact information from a friend who said we should not see anything in Italy without speaking with her first. Elisa’s knowledge is extensive and unparalleled. Her presentation style is engaging, and her access is unprecedented. Not only did we get behind the ropes at The Vatican, but she also arranged other tours at incredible venues that no one else was able to. We learned that Elisa’s contacts, allow her access to unique and exclusive experiences that thankfully she is happy to share. However, access is only part of the story here. It is Elisa’s extraordinary breadth of knowledge and presentation style allowed us to learn something new and important at every turn. As a family who is lucky enough to travel and utilize great tour guide, Elisa stands apart. In addition to the above she is warm, funny, kind, and was able to keep all 7 of us (Ages from 20-60) engaged. Like our friend said originally: “Don’t do anything without speaking in Italy without speaking to Elisa first.”

    Superb knowledge and great customer service at the Vatican
    My guide, Elisa, was outstanding. She knows her ‘stuff’. Her background in archaeology and academia is excellent and allows her to answer questions quickly (and I had lots of them). I like the way she paced the tour to my needs. Also, her presentation skills were multi-faceted (I especially liked seeing a explanatory video or picture on her iPad. I will be back to Rome next Spring and Elisa is the only guide I will use.

    Fabulous tailor made Caravaggio tour we are still dreaming about!
    This was a once in a lifetime experience that far exceeded our expectations! Elisa from Roma Experience put together a bespoke tour for us based on a few thoughts I had. She made it come alive in just a matter of a few days. My goal was to see as many Caravaggio paintings in Rome as possible over the course of 4-5 days, as a surprise gift for my partner who's favorite painter is Caravaggio. Elisa put together a wonderful itinerary including all the major Caravaggio paintings in Rome (we saw 21 in total over 4 half days, two of which are in private collections). In addition, we toured the Restoration Lab that has restored a Caravaggio painting and learned all about the process of restoration including the work that was done on the Caravaggio. We even saw the apartment Caravaggio lived in. Our guide, Luca, was superb, an extremely knowledgeable art historian, who knew not only everything about Caravaggio but also the other important painters at the time and was able to connect art discussion to history and culture. We learned so much and looked forward to being with Luca each day. We really cannot say enough about this special tour and encourage any Caravaggio fan to skip the prepackaged tours and talk to Elisa about a tour designed with your goals in mind, you will NOT be disappointed. Elisa is extremely responsive, resourceful and knowledgeable. She will make your Rome dream come true! She cares so much about what she is doing. We miss our time in Rome with Luca and Caravaggio!

    Excellent tour of Colosseum
    Elisa is knowledgeable, well spoken and entertaining. She guided us on our tour of the colosseum and made it unforgettable. Will definitely use Roma Experience again and recommend to my friends.

    Five star private tour of the Colosseum
    We toured with Alesia and she was excellent! Her background in archeology and her knowledge of Rome and the history were invaluable. We were on a private tour just the two of us experiencing the Colosseum in a sea of other tours, but she made us feel like we were the only ones there. Skip the line, getting us to the perfect vantage points all the while imparting all her knowledge and insights into the spectacular venue. She's an amazing guide and we can't recommend her highly enough!

    Rome in a day
    If I could give Elisa ten stars I would. We spent the entire day exploring Rome and Elisa was so knowledgeable and fun to listen to. Thank you so much for giving us one of the best tours we have ever had!

    Five star service!
    For those who value their time and will pay extra for great service this is the company you should choose. From the time of booking to the very end of the excursion we were in constant communication by texting through the Viator app. The driver who picked us up from the hotel In Rome was exceptional. He then handed us over to a greeter at the Roma Termini station. My son and I were nervous about the taking the trains and getting lost but the greeter took care of that all. He made sure we got on the right train. The guide who met us in Florence her name was Scilla. Talk about personable and knowledgeable. She was all of this and more. She offered to take photos and took them well and they were well composed. I take a lot of photos professionally for fun and I was impressed at the photos she took of us. Then she handed us off to a driver who took us safely to Pisa from Florence. We then met the second guide Alessandra. She was so attentive and kind. She showed away our bags for us so we wouldn’t have to walk around with them. She made suggestions for the best gelateria in Pisa which was great!! She was exceptionally knowledgeable about the architecture and the history behind the meaning tower. I really had a great time. She then got us to our train on time and stayed with us until we got on the train and back to Rome. Thank you so much! This has been a memorable experience. It was well worth every dime!!!

    Detailed and insightful experience
    We did a private tour with Elisa and she absolutely wonderful- engaging and insightful and we left with an extended knowledge of the sites. Our kids (11&12) absolutely loved the tour and said it was a highlight of a long trip through France and Italy. We have already re-watched Gladiator looking for the things we now know to be either true or false! A truly exceptional experience and I can't recommend doing this tour highly enough.
