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

With this tour the three stages of Roman culture are closed. It is a detailed narrative of how the empire came to pass and pronounce Rome to an unparalleled cultural outbreak. In this way we will know the daily life of the most illustrious emperors such as Augustus, Trajan, Marcus Aurelius, etc. In this case the monuments are mostly the imperial forums, triumphal arches, basilicas, etc. But as important the majesty of the imperial forums and its interest in a city of constant growth where marble occupied everything in wood and brick. Welcome to the Roman golden age, the imperial age is without a doubt the greatest rank that Rome and its culture reached. During the visit we will contemplate: - Arch of Constance II - Arch of Severus Settimio - Vicus Tuscus - House of Cesar Augusto - Saturn Temple - Flavian Temple - Triumphal Arch of Severus Settimio - Peace Temple - Vestal Temple - Triumphal Arch Titus - Julius Caesar Forum - Trajan Forum - Trajan's Market - Augustus Forum - Nerva Forum - Vespasian Forum - Colosseum

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: In front of the San Giorgio Velabro Church. I'm wearing a black PUMA backpack

Una total decepcion. A pesar de ser un free tour. Al contactar por tlf ( se me ha exigido un minimo de 10 euros) Armando nada mas llegar (al no haber mas gente) me ha insinuado que si cancelabamos la visita. Esto me ha parecido muy poco profesional. Hemos empezado sin ningun tipo de preguntas previas para detectar mis conocimientos previos. Ha empezado a soltar una serie de datos desordenados y complejos. Sin ningun atisbo de transposicion didactica. Basicamente era muy complicado seguir su narracion. Le he parado y le he dicho que no ibamos a seguir. Ante esta situacion me ha increpado y faltado el respeto. Me gustaria una explicacion ante esta situacion. El dia de hoy lo he organizado para hacer este tour.

Response from Armando
GRACIAS POR COMENTAR Me dedico a esta labor desde hace 3 largos y intensos años, dond he visto todo tipo de clientes y situaciones, PERO LA TUYA HA SIDO LA MÁS IRRESPONSABLE QUE HE VISTO POR LOS SIGUIENTES PUNTOS: 1. Llegaste 15 min tarde 2. Reservaste la parte IMPERIO y no y no tenías ni idea que estaba la primera parte donde se ve nacer y desarrollar la cultura romana. 3. Tú reservaste un tour de 2 horas y media dond conocé Roma, NO que yo te explique como llega Roma a ser imperio, que lo hago. 4. Me diste la culpa que no habías visto que existía otra parte. 5. Te sienta mal que aclare el precio normal que la gente NORMAL paga. 6. Te comportaste en un modo desagradable desde el primer momento. CON ESTE TRABAJO M GANO LA VIDA Y ME ENCANTA. TÚ HAS SIDO 1 ENTRE 1000 POR LO QUE ESTOY AGRADECIDO YA HAYA PASADO Espero sirva de ejemplo lo detallado para todo/as
