About Understanding Rome Tours
Private tours of Rome taking the Eternal City at your pace, and focusing on what interests you. Proud to be licensed as a guide by the Province of Rome, I organize tailor-made private and small group tours of the city and environs. I've lived in Rome for 12 years, am a naturalized Roman, and love exploring the city's multiple layers; the only way to understand Rome. Understanding Rome is recommended by the New York Times, the Daily Telegraph, the Rough Guide to Rome, the Sydney Sun Herald, and Conde Nast Traveller's Rome App.

Hi Tony, The $278 was the total cost of the tour for two, including entry tickets. We had two tours with Agnes, both were absolutely top-notched. Worth every penny! Have fun!
