We had a very specific request when we signed up with Eyes of Rome--please give us a tour guide that could make Rome come alive for our two teenaged girls. They completely delivered with guide Francesco Grasso, aka, "Frankie Fat." He was fun, casual, engaging all at the same time. The girls said it felt more like getting to run... More

If you are looking for a private tour of the Colosseum or the Vatican then look no further than this excellent tour company. Our hotel organised both of our tours in advance and we could not have been more happy with their choice of "Eyes of Rome". We had two tours on separate days and each was with a different... More

We had a wonderful tour of the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel on a Friday evening with Francesco Grasso. He was not only knowledgeable, he was also funny and irreverent, which made the tour so much better. He managed to make the Vatican museums interesting to us as well as to our teenage daughter. It was also great not to... More

We had a very knowledgeable and entertaining tour guide who enriched our visit to Tivoli and its attractions. Good driver. It was expensive, as in very expensive, and despite the fact that they made it clear up front, I thought it a bit nickel and dimed to ask us to pay entry fees to the two attractions we went to...

Elisa was our guide for two days last week - she was incredibly knowledgable and interesting and we all agreed we had learnt and enjoyed our visits so much more because of her. Not only is Elisa excellent at her job, but she is also a lovely person and a pleasure to spend time with.

My partner and I took a private 3.5 hour tour of Vatican City with our fabulous tour guide, Azura.

Staying in Prati

Neighborhood Profile
Prati
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.
