Simone Lanna is an amazing tour guide. We chose to tour the Vatican and the Colosseum with him, and we are very glad we did! He has a wealth of knowledge, including history, archaeology and religion, which he conveys in a very interesting manner. Simone asked questions of us, to get us to think about what he was showing us, and he used current events to help us relate to the historical facts he shared. He used story telling to help us imagine life in ancient Rome when the Colosseum and Forum were new, and he brought all of it to life. He even personalized the tours to include aspects of our own heritage in his descriptions, which was very much appreciated. We were a family group of 6 thirty-somethings and 2 parents of these young adults, and everyone had a wonderful experience. We all highly recommend booking tours with Simone.

Simone was an excellent tour guide. I toured the Roman Colosseum on my last visit to Rome and learned only a fraction during that visit as I did with Simone. He has much knowledge on the city and was a great guide. He was friendly and easy to work with to arrange the tour. If you want to have a great experience in Rome, I would certainly recommend touring it with Simone!

Free bike Tours Rome: 100 %  recommend!! Simone is incredible....there are no words to explain how he made the tour so exciting, easy to grasp, and easy to learn, particularly for my children. We totally enjoyed this experience, and the bikes were fantastic as well!

We wanted a different tour as we have been to Rome before. This tour absolutely fitted the bill and was the highlight of our trip to Rome. Simone is a very knowledgeable and interesting guide and excellent at sharing his extensive knowledge. We loved seeing and understanding, not only the lovely churches and villas one under the other, but also the significance of what we were seeing in relation to the history of Rome and the way people lived in these times. This tour is highly recommended!

My husband and I have been to Rome a couple of other times and thought we saw and knew a lot about Rome history, Wrong! We were looking for something different to do and I found Simone on TripAdvisor and decided to book him for two tours and they were absolutely the best tours. Simone is not only highly enthusiastic and knowledgeable but he made both days fun and easy for us to learn history as we never knew it. We wish we had a history professor like him! It was such a pleasure to have Simone as our tour guide and it was a wonderful experience getting to know some of the real Rome. Just want to say thank you, Simone, for proving us two terrific tours and next time we are back in Rome we will be signing up to learn more with you. Thank you for such a great time and adventure.

Had an excellent time. Our tour guide was great and very knowledgeable. He knew how to get around the crowds and still see all the highlights of the Vatican and st Peter s basilica.

A wonderful tour with a very knowledgeable young man Simone was an archeologist who spent ten years working in Egypt. He also knows as much knowledge in Roman history. Simone easily walked us through the street of Roma. We met in a lovely plaza and saw the special places that most tourist would not visit. He personality was great. If you are looking for an great tour with a small group Simone is your man. Thanks Simone.

Booked a private 4 hour Vatican tour with Simone for myself and my 13 year old daughter. The tour from beginning to end was excellent - Simone has a Ph.D in archeology and was obviously very knowledgeable on the history of Rome and the Vatican. He was able to keep my daughter engaged and entertained (not always easy with a teenager) and at no time did we feel rushed. I appreciated the detailed photos he had on his iPad of the Sistine Chapel which he discussed with us in detail prior to actually entering the Chapel. I will absolutely book another private tour with Simone when I return to Rome. In addition to a high quality experience, the price of his tours are very reasonable. When in Rome, don't miss out on a RomeThings tour - truly an excellent experience!

Grazie mille for your wonderful review! It's not always easy to keep teenagers and kids engaged during a tour. Nevertheless, they can truly make the difference in a tour, as they can be very interactive! We are so glad your daughter loved the tour! And that you found Rome Things tours worth the money you spent. We think that a private or small group experience is the only way to maintain a very high quality level. I personally cannot wait to meet you again in Rome for another walk together! Simone (and the whole Rome Things team)

Had the best time with our fabulous guide Simone Lanna. Who'd have thought religion and the power struggles of Vatican City could be so interesting. Having a personal expert for this family tour added to the whole experience. Simone added lots of fun facts and humour to our tour. I am definitely booking him for my next tour in Rome. I've already recommended him since leaving Rome. Thanks Simone you made our trip really special

Hi Lisa, I am so glad you enjoyed your Vatican tour. You are right: religion and power so often are very interconnected and they make the Vatican one of the most fascinating places of the world both for religious persons and lovers of political history! I am really looking forward to meet you again in Rome...and thanks for you recommendation! Have a nice day Simone

I have been to Rome over 30 times, taken tours on every trip. This was the best I ever had. Simone loves his work and has the ability to organize a tour that imparts more knowledge than you could ever expect. Just amazing. Do not miss this tour.
