      Castel Sant'Angelo
      Stop: 2 hours
      The monument was built by emperor Hadrian (117-138 AD) together with the Aelius bridge in front of it to become a mausoleum for himself and for his successors. In the course of centuries it became the defensive rampart of the Vatican City, the site of a garrison, a prison, but also the offices of the Vatican Treasury and Archive. Today the interior of the castle can be visited with its seventeenth century rich frescoed halls (Hall of Apollo, Hall of Paolina decorated with the Stories of Alexander the Great, Hall of Perseus with episode of the myth of the Greek hero, Room of Amore and Psiche), the prisons, the collection of antique arms, the painting gallery (with works by Carlo Crivelli, Luca Signorelli, and Dosso Dossi), the collection of ancient marbles, ceramics, and sculptures. The terrace offers one of the best panoramic views of the Historical Center.

      Fantastico Tour
      Vincenzo was the best guide we have ever had. Super knowledgeable and engaging. His energy is definitely part of his charm. The Trajans Markets are an incredible place to visit and he brought it to life for us. Leah and Todd.

      Magnificent lively guide visit to Rome
      You only find exceptional outcomes when in difficult circumstances - and we had it all: it rained like it never did in Rome and we were in family with kids … but still Vincenzo managed to get us through all the really relevant information and without the kids getting rebellious - we repeated obviously for the Colosseo and Imperial Forum and this time with better weather - the visit and the explanations were as if we lived that time along Vincenzo - thank you truly for your energy and dedication

      Museo di Roma/Palazzo Braschi
      Martina guided us through a fabulous historical tour of Rome. She described in lively details the various epochs of Rome depicted in the paintings of the Museum of Rome at Palazzo Braschi, we could feel we were walking through history, with its colors, sounds and feelings. An amazing guide. Highly recommended!!!!!

      Absolutely fantastic: Could not recommend more highly
      We did four tours: Borghese Gallery, Vatican Museum/St. Peter’s/Sistine Chapel, Imperial Rome, City Center. We saw essentially every major landmark of the city during those four tours. Martina was extremely knowledgeable about art and history. She is easy going and worked directly with us and our interest to tailor our tours so we maximized our exposure to the history and art of Rome. Martina’s delightful personality lends itself to a positive and enjoyable experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with her. We had very basic knowledge of the history and who the important figures of Rome were. Our knowledge was dramatically increased in a few days with Martina. It is overwhelming to understand what happened here - sometimes in the very place you are standing - but Martina explained it all with great insight. We have never used a guide before. Our experience was 1000 times better than if we had tried to do this trip on our own or with a group. We cannot recommend Rome Guides more highly!

      Vatican City with tour guide Martina
      What can I say about our private, 9 hour Vatican City/Sistine Chapel/St. Peter’s Basilica tour with the wonderful and knowledgable Martina. My wife and I booked our visit through Viator. We met her outside the Vatican’s white marble front gate and although Rome, to newbies like us seemed very chaotic, she was a calming and reassuring presence. She explained everything ahead of time. What we would see. How much walking and stairs are involved. When we could find time to rest, eat, and most importantly, find a restroom. Her knowledge of the all we saw was insightful and well presented. I am an artist with an art history minor and a Christian so I am very familiar with Western history as it relates to the Catholic Church and the historical significance of Ancient Rome to the Renascence. She gave detailed accounts of paintings, sculptures, tapestries, and buildings. She was such a joy to spend the day with, we asked her to dine and take photos with us.

      Best tour EVER! Foro Romano/Capitoline hill/Colosseo
      Last year, I explored the Forum Romanum, Capitoline Hill, and the Colosseum on my own, and, as my Italian friend had warned, it felt like just a pile of rocks. However, this year was a different story. With Vincenzo as our guide, Veronika and I were transported back to the glorious times of Rome. The passion and energy he infused into his storytelling brought history to life in a vibrant way. Moreover, he clarified the core aspects of Roman life and dispelled some common misconceptions. Without a doubt, a lot of this newfound knowledge has stuck with us, and we're eagerly anticipating our next tour. Until next time!

      Perfect tour of Capitoline museum
      Our guide, Vincenzo Inglese was an exceptional tour guide. He actively engaged us to stay focused. He is also very enthusiastic about explaining history of Rome. I can highly recommend this personal tour. This tour was what we needed after being cramped like sardines in Vatican. All i can say is that tour was excellent (Eccezionale) !!

      Amazing Tour
      Vincenzo was pur tour guide, he was absolutely amazing. The tour was 7 hours, but it didn't feel that long at all and he showed us amazing art and neat things that a majority of other tourist were walking by. He was so good at describing art that others on self-guided tours would stop and listen to what he said. I highly recommend this tour.

      Fabulous!
      We absolutely loved our full day private tour with Martina and highly recommend her. We toured the Vatican, Sistine Chapel, Saint Peter’s Basillica, Roman Forum and Coliseum. We are not art enthusiast nor very knowledgeable about Roman history; however, Martina changed all that by sharing her in depth knowledge in a way that made what we were seeing come to life. There was not a question we had that she did not know something about. Do yourself a favor and book a guided tour with Martina.

      Martina is the Best!
      Martina is the best tour guide we never met. We booked her months before our trip for a full day in the Forum and Colosseum. She also answered my many emails asking for advice on the best places to find Gelato, souvenirs, restaurants and more. I don't think that was really part of her job, but she did it happily! Unfortunately, at the last minute, we had to cancel due to a brief health issue. I was heartbroken. But Martina remains a happy memory of our Roma visit because of her beauty, warmth, generosity of spirit and her total ❤️ dedication to making our visit a memorable one. She was more than a guide- she was a true host of Roma. I will miss our email exchanges, but most of all, my wife and I have missed meeting such a lovely person, and the hug we promised each other will need to wait for another visit. Martina is the best tour guide we never met.

      Better than a Netflix documentary
      It felt like being in a Netflix documentary. The energy, the knowledge, the interaction created a magic night. Giovanni is funny, witty incredibly passionate about every detail from the architecture, toponomastic, stories of the people the fun facts, the loves and the betrayal, the fights the murderers, the food, traditions, everything in a continuous flow that takes you in a different world. Ablosolutely stunning entertainer, best experience ever!

    We booked a private tour of Castel Sant Angelo with Vincenzo of RomeGuides few weeks ahead all through whatsapp. They are all very responsive and they make a point to contact you ahead of time to specify a meting point and a time.
    Vincenzo is from Rome and he deeply loves his city (how could he not!) he is passionate about knowing all there is to know about the 3000+ yo city.
    When explaining anything he really throws himself entirely in the explanation to the point that he becomes an attention magnet! Even if you are prone to distraction you are captured by his performance and will remember everything he says for the rest of your life. It's a unique experience our teenagers kids asked to have more tours like this one! Vincenzo also has a thorough knowledge about a lot of monuments or aspects or Rome for example you can ask him quesitons about any random statue or building you have seen in Rome and he would know the answer.... it's not just a job for him it's his passion! We will for certain contact RomeGuides again when we will be back in Rome!

    I can highly recommend the private tour of Sant' Angelo Castle! The organization went smoothly, a few days before the start of the tour, there was also a WhatsApp message with the exact dates and a number in case there were any questions or problems. During the tour we were told the history of the castle from scratch, questions were welcome and were all answered easily understandable. Furthermore, the atmosphere was great, as we got two very friendly, funny and helpful Rome Guides, Martina and Barbara, as we could not have wished for better! It was by far the best tour we have taken in Rome and at the end there was even a little surprise as icing on the cake! I would book the tour again and again despite the price, it is really worth it and you get profound insights into the history of the castle and background information about the conditions at that time. Thank you very much, Martina and Barbara! 🙏☺️
