We spent 2 GREAT days with Marta walking around Rome. Our first day was spent at the Colosseum, the Forum and the Ancient Ruins. Marta provided much insight and history of the grounds and what we were seeing, Day 2 with her was spent at the Vatican, learning the history of the Vatican and the artwork that is there. Marta is student of Rome history and the art in the city. The days we spent with her was a great leaning experience. When we return to Rome Marta will be the first person that we will contact.

Rome was one of our stops on a 12-day Mediterranean cruise. We wanted to make the most of our 10 hours in port and show our kids as much of the city as possible. So, we hired Marta to take our group of 10 (2 families of 5 travelling together) to see the highlights. Ahead of time she answered numerous questions for us by email and helped us figure out how to reach Rome by train from the port, saving us hundreds of dollars. She was there to meet us at the station, and during our 7 hours together managed to show us the Coliseum, the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, and the Vatican, including the Vatican Museum, the Sistine Chapel, and St Peter’s Basilica, before whisking us back to the train station. Marta true wealth of knowledge about all the sites and the city in general, combined with her skill in navigating the pubic transit system almost effortlessly and her ability to get us consistently to the front of lines – meant that we saw and learned more in one day than most tourists can manage in five. Throughout she was excellent with the kids, friendly, watched out for our best interests, encouraged questions and was entirely professional. Marta is a credit to the Rome tourism industry and our tour with her was worth every penny.

My wife and I were on our honeymoon in May 2013, and found Marta Marsili through a friend. We had been to Rome before but felt the private tour might add more value to understanding what we were looking at. While a few hundred euros for the afternoon, we greatly enjoyed our tour of the Vatican Museums and St. Peter's with her. She is very knowledgeable about art, history, and also really personable and genuine. We highly recommend her - email is martamarsili@hotmail.com

We enjoyed an excellent Private Ancient Rome Walking Tour with Rome-Tour. We booked and confirmed by email and found our guide at the appointed time very easily. Our guide Alberto was very knowledgeable and gave us an excellent insight into the history of Rome and the monuments and sites that he showed us. He made it interesting for all of us (a couple and our teenage son) and the pace of the tour was just right. Highly recommended.

Marta Marsili was recommended to us by friends and they did not steer us wrong! She was delightful and knowledgable! She got us into the Vatican and made sure we saw it all even on a very hectic Good Friday holiday!
Her knowledge of the artists and her interpretations made our visit a real treat!
