My Rome adventure started a few years ago when I moved here from Scotland where I studied Contemporary Art at the University of Edinburgh. I also had a chance to spend 5 months in the USA as an exchange student at SUNY Purchase, NY. I'm from Poland and I've been doing tours in Rome for around 3 years now. I was immediately seduced by Rome's intemperate heart, enchanting with the constant chaos of the modern civilization, somehow perfectly settled within the matrix of the ancient remains echoing the times from a distant past. I'm here to share with you my enthusiasm about the city.

About the tour

This tour gives you a chance to feel the aura of the grandeur of the Ancient Rome. It's held in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. The main idea is to enjoy our time together when having a chat, exchanging our enthusiasm and info, and taking photos.

We start at the small terrace close to the Colosseum from which you will have an amazing view on this imposing monument, standing still as if not bothered by the turmoil of hundreds of years that have passed. Then we continue along Via dei Fori Imperiali, a result of Mussolini's caprice, to engage in the tumult of the Roman Fora where crowds gathered vividly, and life was just as it is now.

After admiring the glamour of the Column of Trajan we take our way up the Capitoline Hill where the ruins of the Roman Forum will unroll at your feet. Going down the hill we will have a quick look at the 1st-century BC Theatre of Marcellus before we head towards Area Sacra, known for the assassination of Julius Caesar, and for the cats gathering there to exchange their mysteries. To finish the tour we go inside the marvelous Pantheon and wave to all the gods that are still (so I believe!) curiously gazing through the Oculus, invisible and unnoticed.

After the tour a sip of strong Italian coffee is advised (watch your heart!) at one of the local caffetterias.
