We had two private tours this past week. Roberta was with us at the Colosseum and Ancient Rome sites. Martha was with us for our tour of the Vatican. Roberta and Martha were both art history majors in college. They both had so much background information and history to add on to what we were seeing, as well as historical... More

We (group of 9) booked Eyes of Rome online for the Vatican early entry visit/Castelo tours. Expecting very little from an online tour booking, we were absolutely delighted to find a knowledgeable, passionate tour guide awaiting us. Watching other tour guides around us, fumbling with books or no references, we felt fortunate to have Azzurra and her iPad fully loaded... More

I was in Rome with my girlfriend last month and we did two private tours with Eyes of Rome: the Vatican tour with Marco and the Colosseum / Ancient Rome tour with Giuliano. Both guides were outstanding. They were knowledgable, friendly, and funny. Most importantly, they were very, very passionate about Rome and it's history. The best part of the... More

We booked the first tour (private) through the hotel to see the Catacombs. Katie was absolutely fantastic!! She was a great historian and great "story teller". We were lucky enough to be able to get her again for the Vatican Museum and Basilica. Wow!!! What a difference (having done both before). She curated an afternoon for us that was educational...

Even though we gave you short notice on needing a tour guide for a few hours in Rome, you came up with a winner for us. Our experience with Marta, from Eyes of Rome, was nothing short of wonderful. When we met she was very warm and personable. We told her what we wanted to see and do in a... More

Should anyone have the opportunity to visit Rome and need a private guide, make sure you request Rosalba. She was the most wonderful guide, professional, informative and very interactive with guest. Cannot say enough good things about her - EXCELLENT!

I had never been to Rome and was recommended this by a friend. I did a walking tour of Rome and a Vatican tour and had the same guide for both trips. My guide was called Elisa and I could not praise her highly enough. She had such an in depth knowledge of the history of this beautiful city -... More

Staying in Prati

Neighborhood Profile
Just steps away from the chaos of the center, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighboring Borgo, Prati is a local favorite for its aesthetic organization and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.
