Well, we were sceptical, but we risked it and we got Grant. Great guy, awesome guide. In 3h I got the enough knowledge regarding Vatican City. We skipped the line and we payed 41 euros/person. I think it is a faire trade. Thank you, Grant!

The money was worth it. Our guide, Marta, was very informative & patient. It was great that she had her tablet to help explain visually & up close what will be seen on the Sistine Chapel. It was also great that this group used headsets to hear the guide better.

We spent the day with Luca for both a Vatican tour as well as a Baroque Art tour in the city of Rome. Luca was fantastic as he enriched our experience through his knowledge, his use of pictures and then his personal passion for the art and history within the Museum and Art in the city. He was responsive to... More

Booked a skip the line tour and am so glad we did. The tour guide, Suzanne was excellent and really knowledgeable. Also liked that there were only 20 adults on the tour so was small compared to other tours we saw. We did " skip the line" too as we went through a different entrance !

Our guided was very informative and even though the tour was 2 hours, it was conducted at a leisurely pace to be... More

She explained the history behind the acquisition of some of the art, the artists and the acquisition of the most unbelievable collection. The started on time. Amber explained in depth... More

I appreciated the lady who guided us cause she was nice and made sure we understood what she was explaining about the artworks within the vatican city. She made sure that none of us were left behind as well. However I had to minus one star from this rating cause i think the st peters basilica was overpriced - 35€... More

We booked this tour on line in advance of coming to Rome for the Jubilee Year celebrations. Our tour guide led our small group around the Gardens giving us insight into current and historical usage. You do need to be able to walk for 1 1/2 hours on uneven surfaces. After our tour, we were allowed to tour the attached... More

Staying in Trastevere

Neighborhood Profile
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
