Stop At: Mercato Antico, Piazza Mercato, 80, 95031 Adrano CT, Italy

When talking about street food's good quality, there are basically three aspects: popular tradition, worldwide availability and low cost.

Catania has been on a street food's map for centuries! In its baroque, among the picturesque streets, lives in ancient gastronomic traditions: Catania's street food is not only a source of pride, but a true moment of social integration. We classified street food into three different types of palate: soft, hard, intense.

Mount Etna is on Sicily's Eastern coast and is one of the fundamental stops for those wanting to discover this region. Its spectacular eruptions have created unique landscapes over the centuries.

We booked a tour of the Amalfi Coast 2 yrs ago where we first met the fabulous Rossana and Luigi as our tour guide and driver. What a find! The attention to detail and personalized service we received with their company was spot on. Rossana is so much fun and a book of knowledge on the history of Italy while Luigi is the best wheel man in the business!! We so enjoyed the tour of the Amalfi Coast we booked a tour of Capri for the following day! They took us to Capri and we boarded a perfect little boat and sailed around the island before having an amazing lunch at the water’s edge with plenty of time to shop!! (Rossana took me to a place that I never would’ve known to go where they had custom made shoes to order and I designed my own!) AND Luigi holds onto to all your bags so there is no need to worry about losing or misplacing your newly bought treasures...He is a keeper! We were so impressed by their balance of professionalism and warmth we booked a tour of Portofino the following year. They met us right at our port and took us directly to Santa Margherita by car. What fabulous service!! They knew just where to take us for the most amazing views of the Mediterranean! Great photo ops! This year they provided car service to and from port to hotel with an amazing stop for lunch with the best dish of pasta I ever had! Rossana and Luigi are top notch, bar none. Bianca who assists them was a delight...we adore you, Bianca!! No other tour company can compare to ROME ITALY EXPLORER!

We experienced the “Rome by Night” tour with Rossana and Luigi on April 15, 2019.
The tour promised highlights of Rome in the evening and the tour did not disappoint! Rossana, our guide, and Luigi our driver picked us up at our hotel. We saw the Colosseum , Vatican square (set up for Easter week), the Pantheon, Spanish steps, “St. Peter’s Basilica through a keyhole”, Piazza Navona and other sites. Of course, we went to the Trevi fountain to toss in a coin to insure a return trip to the Eternal City. It was an incredible way to see the high spots with less tourists. Rossana, our guide was incredibly knowledgeable. We enjoyed and were so impressed with Rossana and Luigi that we hired them in September, 2019 to take us on a private tour of southern Italy.

Two people private tour
Amazing day with Luigi and Rossana up in San Giovanni Rotondo. My brother and I were doing a pilgrimage through a few sacred sites in Italy, so Rossana made sure to reserve time for Mass and prayer in addition to observation of the incorrupt body of St. Padre Pio. We had time to visit his "cella" (apartment we're he lived), and the convent and old church we're he preached. Precious opportunity, amazing views. We had lunch at a local restaurant with super good food before heading back to Rome. Recommend this trip to anyone who wants to have a taste of Italy's Adriatic Coast and explore the mistery of a blessed mystic saint of modern times. Professionally handled by Rome Italy Explora, I recommend it highly.

Over priced
This was over priced and you still had to wait in line to get a ticket. Not worth the money, book a tour instead.

This is a very nice exhibition. The paintings are great and the fact that it is very dark with black walls inside the paintings shines.Outside you can take a snack and a drink.

Our trip in Rome, Italy 🇮🇹 was absolutely amazing thanks to Rossana, Luigi & their entire staff!!! Everything was personalized just for us from the time we landed at the airport, private transfers to and from, VIP tours including front of the line and even being up close with the Pope ✝️ Our next trip to Italy will definitely be planned though Rossana & Rome Italy Explora Srls.

Helt sikkert et besøg værd hvis I er i området. Helt fantastisk smukt at se byen på afstand, men også en billedskøn lille by at gå rundt i. det er pengene værd at besøge byen. Vi kom ca 9.30 og der var ikke mange besøgende, da vi kørte 11.30,var der meget varmt og en del turister, så kom tidligt. I kan nemt parkere lige v broen og gå over.

Tour privado alrededor de Capri
Les recomiendo tomar el tour al medio día, ya que en las horas de la tarde hay más oleaje y el barco se mueve mucho. Nuestro guía, Vincenzo, fue un excelente guía y nos instruyó acerca de los diferentes lugares alrededores de la isla. Terminamos el recorrido en la gruta azul y luego paramos a nadar un rato en las aguas azules del mediterraneo.
