I'm a journalist and a professional writer. I live in Rome since 50 years and many of the books I wrote are about the ancient and modern city history. The stratification of several ages requires a deep knowledge of the mysteries and of the events that took place between the ruins, the ancient buildings and districts grown up and destroyed into more than 2000 years of life. I like to tell my guests and friends the many histories that link the past to the more recent times of the eternal city. In this particular period characterized by the aftermath of the pandemic from Covid 19, of course, we will take all the necessary measures to ensure that the tour takes place in absolute safety. We will wear the appropriate masks, maintain the social distance of a couple of meters and limit our stay in crowded places as much as possible. If the itinerary has been to your liking you can leave an offer for the visit.

About the tour

Visiting the Eternal City after the Coronavirus pandemic that has emptied its streets and squares is a unique opportunity to truly admire its extraordinary beauty. The monuments and its thousand-year history are shown to the few visitors with the colors of a new light, never seen in the past. It is now the most suitable time to admire the imposing splendor of the Trevi Fountain which is usually surrounded and almost overwhelmed by the thousands of tourists who hide its view and cancel the noise of an uninterrupted flow of water finally free from a deafening chatter made of selfies mixed with incessant confusion. Take advantage now of a guided tour to the most famous places of ancient Rome and more classic at the same time: from Piazza Navona to Piazza di Spagna, from the Pantheon to the monuments that, in this unusual silence, offer new perspectives to the lenses of cameras and cell phones . The Colosseum and its pastel-colored tones which, together with the Arch of Constantine, stand out majestically in the timeless frame of the Roman Forum. Climb the silent staircase that leads to the statue of Marc'Aurelio on horseback motionless defender of the majestic presence of the senatorial palace and cross the now empty alleys of the Jewish ghetto that surround the portico of Octavia before stopping to admire the pouring waters of the river that surrounds it the medieval charm of the Tiber Island.

1. Piazza Navona and its wonderful fountains

2. Pantheon

3. Piazza di Spagna and its sumptuous staircase

4. Panoramic view of the Eternal City

Bellissima esperienza. Marco é stato gentilissimo e ha anche modificato il tour su nostra richiesta, inserendo la visita e la ricostruzione dell'attentato di via Rasella dove è veramente ferratissimo. Sa dare sempre spunti e raccontare curiosità che normalmente non si sentono. Consigliatissimo.
