I have a degree in Environmental Sciences from the University of Jaén and Erasmus in Viterbo (Italy) 7 years ago. I belong to the historical evocation group of the Roman Empire: Gruppo Storico Publio Elio Adriano for 4 years. I study a Master in Geology from the University of RomaTre. After living in Rome for 4 years and contemplating the great cultural wealth it houses, I decided to take advantage of my desire to transmit, so that the visitor has an exciting first contact with Rome.

About the Tour

Throughout human history there have been key figures, characters who have shaped the history of a civilization in one way or another, and certainly that of Rome is an exciting one. 28 centuries ago there were a number of people who encouraged the arrival of the Roman Empire: Mario, "the great consul Mario" who professionally created the Roman legions. Sulla, "the dictator" who first came to power through the legions in the history of Rome. Tarquinio Prisco, Craso, Pompeyo, Augusto ... but above all we are talking about the great architect of the Roman Empire, CAIO JULIO CÉSAR. In the "Heart of Rome" tour we will talk about the most epic and epic points in Roman history until we get to the point where we get involved. We will do this through the ruins, monuments, temples, neighborhoods, hills, etc. that clothe the Eternal City of ROM. The Tour PLUS includes a geological route that explains the building materials from Roman times and explains how to understand their secrets hidden over millions of years. The meeting point is the underground station B, stop Circo Massimo, in front of the "Gustomassimo" bar next to a green kiosk. As soon as the group is reunited (I always give 10 minutes of courtesy), an introduction to the ROMULO AND REMO point of view by Circo Massimo is foreseen. Then the stops shown below will be made and to end a surprise where you cannot hold your breath. The two and a half hour tour includes: - Introduction. - Palatinate. - Massimo Circus. - Giano's bow. - Boario Forum. - mouth of the truth. - Temple of Hercules. - Portuno Temple. - Tiberina Island. - Fabrizio Bridge. - Portico Ottavia. - Marcello theater. - Capitoline Hill. - Sacred area. It is a pleasant but rigorous tour, with the spontaneity typical of the Roman routine, particularly worthy of the tourist who wants to exceed expectations of what he has said or heard so far. At the end of the tour, I'll be happy to share with you where the best Roman cuisine restaurants are, different viewpoints to see the city, ice cream parlors and much more. All roads lead to Rome ... and I am waiting for you here.

No me gusto

Response from Armando
Alucino! Has visto los foros imperiales, la boca de la verdad desde dentro, phanteon, etc . Te he tenido que esperar, que soportar preguntas impertinentes etc. Y además me dices que no te gusta. El problema lo tienes tú que no te sientan bien ni las vacaciones. Hago este trabajo lo mejor que puedo y de esto consigo ir adelante. Espero les vaya bien las vacaciones.

Para empezar exigen un pago mínimo por persona si quieres hacer el tour con el guía en vez de hacer un buen trabajo de guía y merecérselo. El Tour estaba pobremente preparado, teniendo muy poca veracidad en las historias contadas y pocos o nulos datos históricos rigurosos. Su discurso es caótico, sin hilo conductor y difícil de seguir puesto que pasa de un tema o época a otra sin sentido y sin aviso. Los lugares que se visitan no están mal pero no son los más importantes ni representativos de Roma y el guía no te señala ni explica lo más representativo de lo que se ve ni da ningún contexto sobre ellos. En resumen el tour ha sido una grandísima decepción y una completa pérdida tiempo. Cualquiera con un mínimo de conocimientos de cultura general o historia que no se quiera sentir estafado debería evitar este tour.
