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!
Max is a fantastic storyteller, we definitely recommend this tour 😊
