Rooms were excellent at Delfino and Grand Hotel Mediterraneo but at Rome Garden, the room was too small and not convenient; it was Noisy too. The tour guide was very very good and efficient and the bus driver excellent.

I have never been so disappointed in an expensive tour as this one. While we were 15 minutes late for an all day tour, Carrani was unable to work with us, saying that we could meet up with the tour at 12:15. They DID NOT pick us up at our hotel, as per the description! We were very lucky that... More

The tour which took us to Assisi, Siena, Padua, Bologna, Florence, and Venice was fantastic!! Mirjam, our tour guide, kept us entertained throughout the whole tour. I celebrated my birthday in Venice. Mirjam went out of her way to arrange a gondola ride with an accordionist and singer. That made my birthday extra special.

We had a wonderful guide who lead us up to the Palatine Hill before taking us into the Colosseum where she continued to impart the history behind these awe-inspiring sites with enthusiasm.

Excellent value made even better by tour leader Mijam- booked through Viator who offer other add ons. Mijam is Carrani's top gun guide & she is a savvy lady that gets the best for her guests. I have never been a fan of packaged tours but this one is the exception

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
