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.

Pedro was the highlight of our visit to Rome! Demonstrating great historical and architectural knowledge, he knew how to lead us on an emotional journey. Highly recommended for those who want to break the superficiality of a tourist trip. Thank you very much, Pedro!

Pedro was an outstanding tour guide. He clearly explained the history, art, and architecture of many of Rome’s plazas, churches, and other historical buildings. He answered our many questions with his depth of knowledge. This was the best tour we have ever taken, including paid tours, and we have taken many in various countries. Guru Walks is fortunate to have such a knowledgeable and well spoken guide.
