Our guide Tommaso was very friendly and relaxed. He gave us lots of insights into the various highlights in the museum, Sistene Chapel and St Peter's Basilica. We zipped past all the lines and really enjoyed the tour.

Our first day in Rome was filled with a lot of highlights, however our private tour of the Vatican with our tour guide Vera was one of the bests. Vera met us at the Vatican gate, where she helped us get the day off on the right foot - literally. After arriving to the Vatican my flip flops broke. Vera... More

Luca did a fantastic job of tailoring info for 2 families (4 adults and 4 kids between 9-11 years old) to keep everyone interested. Very well spoken and knowledgeable about the history. They are able to customize the tour to fit your group's needs. Highly recommended!

We are a family of six with four teenagers - we were looking for a private tour of The Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica for our family. This was the key part of our vacation. Our tour guide, Camilla, was absolutely wonderful. She was incredibly knowledgable and made the tour very engaging for all of us. Despite... More

Our private tour guide, Vera, met us to first day to show us around the Vatican, including St. Peter's square, St. Peter's Basilica, and the Sistine Chapel. Booking with the company was incredibly easy - they were quick to respond through email - and helpful. They told us how/when to purchase admission tickets and advised us on the dress code... More

We had a tour with Barbara from Private Tour of Rome of the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. We have 2 children ages 15 and 10 and she did a great job of making the tour easy to follow and interesting. We had been to the Colosseum before without a guide, and this time made a huge difference! She was... More

We booked a tour for both the Colosseum and the Vatican Museums. Our guides for each day were Alice and Maddalena. Both tours were equally brilliant. The guides were both passionate and knowledgeable. We went straight to the front of both queues which is a bonus as the Vatican Museum queue was absolutely huge!!! The benefit of having a guide...

Our friends were in Rome a month before us and had recommended Private Tour of Rome and Tommaso as a guide and now I understand why. Tommaso was great, his expertise and PhD in archeology made for an insightful and engaging tour. We had great discussions about life, culture and politics during Roman times as told through the remains of... More

Rome was amazing, having Barbara telling us firsthand all the highlights of what we were seeing was amazing. Kids loved hearing and walking through all the amazing sights Rome had to offer. Barabara was amazing with my 5 year old , kept her entertained, and explained so much history in detail to all of us. We were picked up in... More

Our guide, Veronica, provided an excellent private tour of the Colosseum and Roman Forum for myself and my wife. She really brought the sites to life with her vivid descriptions and detailed knowledge. However this was not just a tour filled with facts and information, Veronica has a big personality and we thoroughly enjoyed our time together. Highly recommended.

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
