      Fantastic Day!
      We booked Max the owner as our guide for this full day of Roma tour and Marco his partner showed up on time for pick up at our hotel with a clean and comfortable van. I Was hoping Marco would be a great guide as we heard Max was from others before our trip. Marco did not let us down. This full Sunday tour was amazing and a highlight of our trip. Marco was fantastic, friendly, and knowledgeable. Could not have asked for a better guide. We saw so many sights and learned a lot. I fully recommend this company for all your tour needs. Thanks for a great day!

      Top leveFirst rate tour--I highly recommend
      Wonderful 2-day tour; vehicle took us to each location, parked nearby, and then we were guided by experts who both bypassed the lines and provided insights and in-depth commentary way in excess of what most people get. I had been to Rome before--this trip was very much in excess of the normal tour. Max's insights on ancient Rome and the various emperor's homes and lifestyles were incredibly informative and interesting. His info on the Colosseum--to include on the engineering aspects of construction and shows was very interesting and informative. The catacomb tour at San Sebastian on the Appian Way was first rate. On day 2, Claudio provided us great insights on the art at the Vatican, to include an incredibly interesting comparison of Michelangelo and Raphael. Marco's tour of fountains. cafe's, lunch-time tratooria's and the Roman touristic sites such as the Trevi Fountain was great. This was somewhat expensive, but well worth it--gave unparalleled access with expert guides. I highly recommend.

      2 day weekend in Rome
      Absolutely recommended! We completed the 2 day tour of Rome with Max and Levino (?). I cannot give enough praise for the professionalism of these two gentleman. Due to scheduling alterations because of the pope holding a sudden meeting, they changed our schedule and was able to allow us to see everything scheduled. We actually were able to see more than expected due to their recommendations and time allowed. Rates as one of the top weekends of my life. If your going to Rome, please don't do it alone and choose these guides. You won't regret it!

      The best one day tour guide for Rome
      We had only one day to spend in Rome and wanted to see all the major sites in that little time frame. The tour guide we had - Max Parini- made this one amazing tour of Rome. It was done with such ease. We never felt like we were in a crowd and never waited in a queue. His knowledge and expert ability of getting around Rome and knowing best times to see the major sites made our tour. His English is excellent and he knew practically everyone at the sites. Highly recommend!!

      Excellent tour!
      Had a wonderful time seeing Rome with our tour guide, Marco. He was very informative, personable, and great sense of humor. It may not be possible to see all of Rome in a day, but you’re going to get your money’s worth on this tour! Highly recommend. Definitely a highlight of our vacation!

      An Education On Ancient Rome.
      The Capitaline Museums, located on Capitaline Hill, lays claim to one of the finest collections of ancient sculpture in Rome. My DIY tour had me meandering through the museum's various buildings, 2 of which were designed by Michelangelo. Most of the buildings housed a 'major in' sculpture and a 'minor in' art galleries with collections closely linked to the ancient city of Rome. My favorite exhibit was the 'She Wolf' a major symbol of Rome. I browsed the gift shop chucked full of guidebooks and I did relish the Museum's rooftop restaurant with it's fine view over the city. A great option to explore the ancient city of Rome.

      BEST TOUR EVER!!! Thank you Max
      It was a bitter sweet trip for me because it was our 50th wedding anniversary gift from our son, but my husband passed away in April....Max, the owner was aware and made our trip so special. He is the best tour guide we ever had. He's extremely personable, knowledgeable, kind and amusing. Also an excellent driver. We saw so much in a day, everything on our tour that was listed and then some. It was extremely hot but he went and got the car so we didn't have to walk in the heat. I would highly recommend Max and his company.

      Incredible Shore Excursion from Civitavecchia
      My husband and I had planned an amazing Mediterranean cruise. However, we were disappointed with the Rome shore excursions offered through the cruise line since we would have had to choose between visiting the Colosseum or the Vatican. That dissatisfaction led to us looking for alternatives and we happened across Italy Rome Tours. We contacted them for more information and we decided to book a private tour. It was the best decision! The booking process was fast and the communication was great. When we arrived at the port, our driver was waiting for us with a beautiful Mercedes van. He talked about the history of the region as we drove into Rome. The first stop was a park that gave an amazing view of the city and the Vatican. We were able to visit the Pantheon, the Spanish steps, and Trevi fountain. We then headed to the Colosseum where a private tour guide was waiting to take us inside. We walked straight past all the lines and our tour guide described the history and myths of this amazing place. We then headed to the Vatican. Our private tour guide again walked us past the lines and highlighted pieces of art in the museums as we headed to the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. We then headed back to Civitavecchia where we stopped for gelato before arriving back at our ship. To be able to see all of these amazing sites in a single day from Civitavecchia with friendly and reliable guides... I simply can't express enough how incredible this day was. This tour was absolutely the highlight of our entire cruise. I am so glad we didn't settle with one of the shore excursions offered through the cruise lines. I would rebook with Italy Rome Tour in a heart beat if/when we return to Italy and I would not hesitate to refer a friend of family member to them.

      Fantastic tour!
      Fantastic tour for our family of 5. Max is a knowledgable & fabulous tour guide. You can tell he loves what he does. We had such an incredible all day tour of Catacombs, Colosseum and Vatican. Our lunch spot was perfect as well! I would highly recommend any tour with Max.

      See everything in one day
      Absolutely amazing and worth it. Max was our driver and guide. He was an endless fount of knowledge and extremely efficient and energetic guide for us all day. With this kind of tour, you can just relax knowing someone else has taken care of all the details and logistics. We saw catacombs, Coliseum, Vatican museums / St Peters basilica, and drove by circus maximus, overlooked the forum. Max knows all the best places to take the best photos or have the best views. Not a single minute spent standing in line. Everything was perfectly timed. He's been doing this for 23 years and it shows (in a good way). I would absolutely do it again this way, it was worth every penny.

      So great. Marco was wonderful, we cannot say enough positive. He was so wonderful
      Marco made it a very special day. He drove us to all important sites, talked about history of Rome, and found us a perfect restaurant for lunch.

      Palazzo Museum Colonna Tour
      We had a private tour organised by our hotel of The Gallery, private apartments and gardens of the Palazzo. Our tour English tour guide was called Rebecca Harden and was without doubt the best guide we have ever encountered. She was so knowledgeable and passionate about the history of not only the paintings but the context of their importance in the history of Rome. A truly vivacious and inspiring tour would highly recommend her.

      Highlight of Rome trip with Max
      My parents, brother, sister and I went on the Supreme Rome Tour with Max as our guide. I've been on a lot our good tours with excellent tour guides but Max is definitely they best best that I have encountered. He arrived at our place early and greeted us like old friends! We started at the Vatican museums and Max surprised us with breakfast at the Vatican, which was not included in the tour we booked. It was a great start to the tour and gave us time to get to know each other. Max went above and beyond with my 80 year old parents. Never rushing us and always there to help them out. Max's knowledge of all things Rome was very impressive and he seemed to know everyone we encountered along the way. Each stop was loaded with great information about each place. We ended the 10 hour tour at the Colosseum, with another informative visit before he returned us our apartment. Max also gave us some great restaurant and gelato suggestions, that turned out to be our best meals of the trip! Max truely loves what he does and goes out of his way to share his city with you. Please don't hesitate in booking Max and his company, you will not be disappointed!!

    We booked a small group tour with LivItaly mostly for the Colosseum and the access to the underground portion of the Colosseum. The group had a total of 7 which was comprised of two families. Our guide was AJ who spoke perfect English (slight English accent) and led us through a thoughtful, informative and well-organized tour of some exclusive areas underneath the Colosseum. Moreover, the tour then led out to Palatine Hill, the then the Forum. It was an oppressively hot day, but AJ kept us moving without much exposure to the sun. She was able to keep up with the questions and keep one teenager, two smaller boys, and a couple of know-it-alls (including me in that count) interested, engaged and given new information. Overall, we have been super impressed with LivItaly both in Pompeii inside Rome, and AJ was a major factor!

    We recently took a tour with liv Italy in Rome of the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, and Roman Forum and are grateful that we chose this company. Our tour guide Tania was awesome. Being an archeologist herself she had extensive knowledge of everything we saw. Tania really took her time answering all of my son's questions, who is 18 and a history buff himself. It was also really nice for our family because the maximum size of the tour is 6 people which we were so we had the whole tour to ourselves. I really enjoyed the fact that we did get to skip the lines and also that we got to go through a special gate that gave us the ability to see the lower level of the Colosseum. If you are looking for a tour I would not hesitate to recommend this company.

    My friend and I booked our tour with Max to see the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, Roman Forum and Vatican City. This was my friends first time in Rome but my third. Max was very accommodating and knowledgeable. He was very outgoing and made the tour very exciting. Even though this was my third time to Rome and I had seen a majority of the sites I felt as if I was seeing everything again for the first time because of all the interesting facts Max made sure to share. My favorite part of the trip was Palatine Hill.

    Italy Rome Tour: Vatican Museums, Walking Tour of Ancient Rome:
    Our group of 3 chose two 1/2 day morning tours we met Max Parini at the Vatican on the first morning and at the Colosseum the following morning. We had been corresponding with Max since May of this year and he was patient and exceptionally responsive with each and every email. He helped us to customize our tours and the end result was beyond our wildest dreams! Max was where he told us to meet him, was able to direct us to other sights and recommend local restaurants when our 1/2 day tours finished. Thank you Max for helping us to make memories that will last a lifetime

    The guide was very knowledgeable and kind. We learned a lot. Would definitely recommend to others. Be sure to take an umbrella to protect against sun if traveling at this time of year, though, as it becomes very hot.

    Sarah was a dream tour guide of the Colosseum, especially for young children. She is also an art teacher and brought those skills to the tour. She brought Colosseum related games she had made to keep the children (3 under 10 yrs) engaged, while also making the tour meaningful for the adults and a teenager. Could not recommend this delightful and knowledgeable young woman more highly.
