Outstanding visit to the Capitoline Museums
Dec 2019
We spent a delightful morning at the Museums with our guide, Nicole. The Museums have a magnificent collection that documents the history of Rome and our guide could not have been better. Nicole's in-depth knowledge and passion came through from start to finish.

My wife and I were fortunate enough to tour the Capitoline Museum today with Francesca. I cannot remember spending a more enjoyable and informative three hours. Her training and depth of knowledge resulted in the best tour we have had during our three trips to Rome. She answered all of our questions not only about the museum and it’s contents, which were spectacular, but about Rome in general and what else we might want to do. A tour with Francesca is a must do in Rome! Brice Ladson

Wonderful tour of Capitoline Museum with Francesca
May 2019 • Couples
My wife and I booked a private tour of the Capitoline Museums during our visit to Rome. We had missed these museums on our previous visits to Rome and wanted to do it right this time. We were very pleased with our decision to do the Joy of Rome tour as it really brought the museum alive for us. From the moment we met Francesca in the courtyard she made us feel like old friends that she was sharing her favorite museum with. She was fun and very knowledgable, sharing interesting details that we would have otherwise likely missed, including the center point in the courtyard where all roads that lead to Rome converge. The sculptures, art and architecture in the Capitoline Museums is breathtaking, but the experience is really enhanced when you have a private guide that has an intimate knowledge of the place and it's history. Francesca was all this and more - a terrific guide and a genuinely great person to spend a few hours with. We highly recommend this tour and Francesca, specifically, as a guide.
