Giovanni, our tour guide, is very knowledgeable in the History of Rome and Italy. Our tour of the Colosseum was amazing. The details he incorporated into his talk made it incredibly interesting and entertaining. It was more than a 'tour', it was like stepping back into time and seeing the Colosseum as it was. Very engaging, and I would highly... More

We had a interesting and lively tour with Giovanni...He is well-informed and conversant, professional and also entertaining...We learned a lot! Giovanni even had dining recommendations for other places that we were visiting while we were in Italy. He was highly recommended by a family member and he was our favorite guide on our trip.

Maurizio organised a great tour for us, starting in San Clemente, surely the most interesting church in Rome, continuing with the Colosseum which looks wonderful after its face-lift and finishing with the imperial forums and Trajan's column. He explained everything very clearly and it was a very interesting visit.

Roads to Rome is the best tour in Rome! Giovanni, the tour guide, is extremely personable and informative! The detail he gave my boyfriend and I, made the touring so much more exciting! He gave us knowledge that is not written in most history books as he took us behind the scenes to each of our destinations. Giovanni made our... More

We had two days of tours with Roads to Rome, the first with Alessandra and the second with Luciana. Both tour guides were wonderful. We had both Spanish speaking and English speaking family on the tours and both were bilingual, switching back and forth easily to explain different concepts. Luciana did an excellent job reading the group and figuring out... More

The trip to the Bracciano castle was absolutely perfect. We met our tour guide Claudia and she spoke perfect English which was a big plus, and she knew a lot about the history of Rome, the castle, and the area we went to. The highlight of this tour for me was the fantastic lunch at a wonderful lakeside restaurant. The... More

Giovanni gave our family an indepth tour of the Colosseum and Pantheon during our trip to Rome.

We spent two days with Giovanni touring Colosseum and Vatican. He was always on time, friendly, polite, and very knowledgeable. He also has great sense of humor. We enjoyed our private tour - it was at our own pace and covered topics we were interested in. We learned A LOT in a short period of time. Excellent tour and we... 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.
