Tess was recommended to me by a friend that had toured Rome a few months before my visit. I can't recommend her highly enough. She listened to my interests and tailored a Vatican visit and tour of Rome that was amazing. Her knowledge of art and history is phenomenal. Tess taught me so much about art in those two days....

We were fortunate to be with Tess for several hours during our recent trip to Rome - she had been recommended by a mutual friend. She took us through the usual tourist sites and then added in her own favorites for a wonderful whirlwind tour of the center of Rome! I would highly recommend her to anyone who has wants... More

My wife and I started our Italian honeymoon in Rome, and booked two half-day tours with Lauren. The first day we began the morning with the "Ancient Rome" tour. We took in the sights of the historic forum, Colosseum, Palatine Hill, Pantheon and other sites along the way. The following day we got tour of the Vatican. Lauren is a... More

My daughter and I spent 3 days with Tess over the Christmas holidays. Since it was our first time in Rome and we only had a week, I was concerned that we would be wasting our time trying to find our way around and waiting in long lines so we contacted Tess on the advice of a friend-so glad we...

Tess of Clam Tours was our guide for our Vatican experience. She was highly recommended by a friend of a friend! She was wonderful! We only wish that we had other opportunities to tour with her while in Rome.

Our tour of historic Rome with Tess was a highlight of our trip. Tess brought the history of the city to life as we walked around the cobble streets entering churches and visiting fountains. Book a tour with Tess and you will not be disappointed!

Tess was recommended by a good friend and I am so glad we were able to spend the day with her in Rome. I can't imagine taking on all the important sights without our fun-loving expert! She made everything interesting and connected and we shared many smiles and laughs along the way. She was a perfect fit for us and... More

My mom and I had a wonderful tour of "Ancient Rome" with Lauren in June. She was prompt meeting us at our hotel, and was accommodating to every time we needed espresso, to sit, or even just to stand in the shade. We went to the Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, Spanish Steps, Roman Forum, Colosseum, and many more with her. She... More

We booked a half day tour of the Vatican and a full day walking tour of Rome. Tess arranged for Francesca to guide us through the Vatican and Lauren for our walking tour. Both women were exceptional. Not only knowledgeable of the historical significance of each place but had fantastic back stories which brought each location to life. Not to... More

Staying in Vatican / Borgo

Neighborhood Profile
Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighborhood which acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as visitors vie for elbow room, or stand in line for a visit. Once the sun sets, the neighborhood is transformed into a quiet and picturesque hamlet.
