Hi there, I'm Max! I was created in Ukraine and forged in Rome. After 14 years spent in the Eternal City, its infinite curiosities still surprise me, and I'd love to share them with you. I am a Linguistic and Cultural Studies specialist formed at La Sapienza University, and I have decided to pursue my childhood passion after college: history. This passion led me to door-to-door research and participation to numerous training courses in Roman history, Paleochristian history and History of Arts which all taught me countless tales and legends about Rome. The better I knew this city, the more I wanted to show to the others its hidden beauties and reveal its untold stories. "When you really want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it", a wise man once said, and that is exactly what happened to me. In 2018, I finally had the chance to start working as a tour guide, and since that moment, I've seized every occasion to share my passion, and show the real Rome.

Definately one of the most exciting walking tours!!! It stands out of the box and reveals a way different face of Rome and its peculiar ancestors!!

Lina 09/22/2021

Max was really friendly and the tour was just amazing for an horror geek like me. You should be able to listen to gruesome deaths and torture - otherwise this might not be for you. Also, Rom is very loud so it’s sometimes hard to listen but Max uses his voice really well. Would go again in a heartbeat
