We highly recommend Silvia at A Friend in Rome. We took 4 tours in late February 2020 over 3 days, going to sites not as well known as the popular tourist sites that we saw on a previous trip. All tours were excellent, and we learned so much from Silvia that we would never have known trying to explore Rome on on our own. We went to the WWII tour visiting the Liberation museum and then rode by cab to the Fosse Ardeatine Memorial. Silvia had so much information to provide and helped us understand what Rome went through during the war. We also did the Alternative Christian Rome tour which was all within walking distance from our hotel, and then took metro to a pizzeria in Pigneto. Silvia was so informative at the metro train station, which in itself was a tour on it's own. We had no idea all the historical information on the walls at the metro station and that it had a museum on one floor. We took the pizza making class which was a lot of fun. We were there with the owner at his restaurant that is not open during lunch. It was only the two of us and Silvia, and we were able to make our own pizzas and have a nice lunch. After cancelling going to Venice due to the pandemic, we spent another day going by metro to Ancient Ostia which was about a 20 minute ride from Rome. We highly recommend this tour. After spending the entire day before in Naples and Pompeii leaving by train in Rome at 7:30 am and getting back to Rome after 7:30 pm, Ancient Ostia offers the same type of ruins just a short ride from Rome. I would highly recommend this tour, especially with children, since it is easy to reach and not a long day trip. We had never heard of Ancient Ostia before and so glad we were able to go there with Silvia. We can't wait to return to Rome and we will definately be booking other tours with A Friend In Rome when we return.

Linda, the 3 days spent with you and your husband just before the pandemic locked us in was a sweet memory during the weeks home! And your words now - while we are in the second wave waiting for vaccinations to make effect - are really warming me up! It was such a pleasure to arrange these special tours for you: the WW2 itinerary, the pizza class with Marco, the Alternative Christian Rome, ancient Ostia... these are some of my favorite tours and I hope I will be welcoming you again in the future to offer some more unusual ideas, as we collected so many in the last months of inactivity! So... see you soon! And let me know if you made the pizza in your own oven as planned and how it went! Silvia

Silvia is very well prepared: a tour with her means you get to know that place from an inner perspective, also learning funny stories about it! And be sure that you will not have a standardized experience! The tour shall be tailored exactly on your exigencies and indications!

Unforgettable tours in my favorite city. Silvia was our “cicerone” and she explains detailed information and curiosities in such a way that they will stick to your mind forever. Thank you again for all the important history of my city that you taught me!

Silvia and her colleague Luca were outstanding companions as we weaved our way through two weeks of visiting Rome. They brought out the history in a way that made all the difference to our enjoyment and understanding of Rome's special history. Michael, Jenny and Lachlan

We (family of 5, including a 4 year old) had two really great tours with Silvia. The first was of the Colosseum and Palatine Hill. She is very knowledgeable and made it really interesting for the kids. The second tour was of St Peters Basilica and then to the Testaccio Market. Again, she gave a great overview of the basilica and pointed out all of the most important sections. Testaccio Market is not large but she steered us to the best food stalls and made great suggestions for what proved to be a very nice lunch. We would definitely contact her again for future trips to Rome!
