The History of Art and Architecture has always moved me, being unlimited fuel for other passions such as travelling and getting in touch with different cultures, perspectives and conceptions of the world. I am a Brazilian Architect who found in the city of Rome itself the school of my dreams. I'm currently an Architecture-Conservation Master's student in Rome, and for me it is natural to perceive the city as a living document ready to be read and appreciated. Therefore, it will be a pleasure for me to share with you some knowledge and enrich your perceptions on the Eternal City, together with its symbols, its paths along History and the magnificent Cultural Heritage it produced for Humanity.

Great tour. Pedro is very knowledgeable and extremely friendly. Other people who had booked the same time slot ended up cancelling but Pedro still ran the tour just for the two of us so it felt very much like having a private tour guide! The tour was expertly planned. Pedro's knowledge on the architecture and history of Rome covers all periods. I would recommend this tour to everyone unreservedly!

Thank you very much João, the success of the tour also depends on the listeners, and you two were very interested ones, what makes me very happy!

Pedro is an amazing tour guide (and top bloke to boot). The tour he takes you on seamlessly transitions from square to square, church to church, landmark to landmark and with this he is able to craft an enriching story through the ages.

Every question that we had in topics of history, archaeology, architecture and art was answered in detail and easy for the listener to understand. This guy genuinely enjoys what he does and sharing his knowledge with others.

This was one of my favourite experiences in Italy so far, especially because it visits some of the more obscure sights that might be missed otherwise - if you get a chance don't miss out on this tour. Thanks again Pedro for your time today and will be looking for one of your own works in the near future we hope!

Pedro definitely seemed super enthusiastic talking about each and every places we walked to or through. He has a vast knowledge both historically and in aspect of the city. Rome in itself is beautiful, but knowing the history and secrets behind all these monumental buildings and squares made the tour exceptionally interesting. His groups are small, therefore it's more intimate, easier to engage with questions. Definitely recommend.
