“The only true way to immerse yourself in Ancient Roma”
Reviewed October 13, 2009

My wife and I were lucky enough to have the pleasure of Marco as our guide when we returned from a 12 day cruise on The Carnival Dream Inagural Cruise. When we were on the cruise, we used Carnival tour bus excersions. The next time we come, we will use Marco's service for all our ports of call! You get informative direction at the beginning of each attraction, and are then let go to enjoy it at your leisure. I can't say enough positive things about Rome Connection. To top it all off, Marco has the best disposition and sense of humor, of anyone you want to meet! If you want to see the real Rome and get knowledge, as well as other Italy locations, you must book through Marco! Ciao

“Marco from Rome Connection is excellent”
Reviewed October 6, 2009

Marco provided us a day tour of Rome picking us up at our cruise ship at 7:30 in the morning and returning us to the ship at about 5:30. Everything about the day was fantastic. Marco is very knowledgeable about Rome and its history and does an excellent job of showing you the highlights as well as making the tour a very personal experience. He is very personable and does everything he can to make insure that you have a great time while seeing all of the sites, even his personal ones that you will not see from a large tour provided by a cruise ship.

“One Day Tour of Rome with Marco”
Reviewed September 19, 2009

Our group of 8 engaged Rome Connection for a one-day tour of Rome from our NCL cruise. Marco picked us up at the boat right on time, drove us into Rome filling the time with great history lessons about the Roman Empire and the Caesars. Once in Rome, he took us to all the good sites in our comfortable, air conditioned van, with great oration about each site. We saw all the historical sites in the morning, had a great lunch at a place suggested by Marco, and then spent the afternoon at the Vatican. Everything about the day was perfect. Marco also arranged our next day at Florence, which was also very nice, but I must admit, his personal attention to us in Rome was indeed very special.

“Wonderful service-- felt very safe and adventurous at the same time!”
Reviewed September 12, 2009

We were on a Mediteranian cruise for the first time. My travel agent recommended Marco and Rome Connection as our guide in Rome, Naples and Pisa.

Our guides (Pietro in Pisa, Marco in Rome and Luigi in Naples) were very knowledgeable , had wonderfuly clean and cool it was summer!) cars, and were willing to cater to our itinerary whims for the day. We were traveling with both senior citizens and small children, and they worked to make the day interesting for everyone. We don't travel internationally much, and we felt safe and secure while in their company, yet adventurous enough to go off the beaten path. I highly highly recommend Rome Connection to anyone wanting a guide in Italy. Thank you Marco:)

“I love this guy!”
Reviewed August 27, 2009

On the recommendation of a friend, we booked a tour with Marco on our June vacation to Italy. We only had 2 days in Rome (before heading up to Tuscany for 5 days) and wanted to squeeze in as many of the major sites as possible, so we opted for Rome in a Day with some of the Angels & Demons stops. It was fantastic!

Marco showed up right on time and ready to show us Rome! His knowledge of the city and the ancient sites was amazing. Trying to piece together a tour like the one he provided us would have been completely impossible. We saw the Colosseum, Catacombs, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Roman Forum, Pantheon, Circo Maximo, Piazza Navona, churches, Jewish Ghetto. He brought us to Hosteria Antica Roma for lunch, which was a gem of a restaurant tucked away in the catacombs. As food lovers, we were all too happy to take a long leisurely lunch at this lovely restaurant, and he showed us the Italian way. Marco spoke perfect English, was witty, friendly, and engaging, and really squeezed a lot of sites in for us. This was an awesome tour and is well worth the cost (though our tour was a gift from the friend who recommended Marco). And, Marco saved us from the terror and danger of driving in Rome! And it didn't hurt that we had PERFECT weather. Thanks Marco!!! You Rock!!!
