We hired Giovanni to tour the Vatican. He was extremely well informed, passionate and funny. We learned so many interesting facts about the Vatican and Roman history that we would never have learned by reading a guide book. We enjoyed the tour so much that we hired him on our second day in Rome to tour the Colosseum and Basilica... More

My boyfriend and I recently enjoyed a customized tour of the Colosseum and Basilica San Clemente with Giovanni. What an experience!! I am in awe of the amount of knowledge that Giovanni was able to pass along to us during our four hours with him. I only wish we had more time in Rome so that we could spend more... More

Giovanni was our guide for 30 University Students. He was wonderful- extremely passionate about the sites -- and also fun (and funny). He answered questions with great information and clarity. Our students gave him a 10 out of 10 stars :) Thanks for a great tour of the Colosseum! We hope to see you next year!

We arranged this tour for our 3rd day in Rome so we had already visited most of the major sights (colisseum, vatican, etc.). We wanted to get a... 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.
