Hi there, I'm Max! I was created in Ukraine and forged in Rome. After 15 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.

Max was a compelling storyteller. Lots of hidden gems and history/ lores/ myths you wouldn’t hear from more conventional tours. The group size was quite large but he was able to project and deliver the material to the whole group. Highly recommend!
