Tour description

Rome shaped the world's history in one way or another and certainly, that is why you are here today to get a piece out of it.

Allow us to show you Rome as you have never seen it before, get ready to break the paradigms of boring and rhetorical tours all along and join an experience as you deserve it, the best, yes, just the very best!

We will take you on a trip around ancient Rome and back, you won't have to move, just stay still, let your mind do the walking and jump with us in a time machine and let us do the talking.

We will start our engines in the place where the city was inspired(*) and built by the hands that shaped the future of coming generations to keep moving, creating, conquering, destroying, building and transforming to create the world as we know it today.

  • Circus Maximus. 
  • Janus's arch. 
  • Forum Boarium. 
  • The mouth of truth.

  • Ottavia's porticus. 
  • Marcello theater.

We will also have to talk about where the best Roman cuisine restaurants are, different viewpoints to see the city, parlors, and much more.

All roads lead to Rome ... get ready!

It was not my favourite tour, it felt like a lot of details about some random places without a common thread. The story was missing. The guide clearly was very knowledgeable but did not engage the audience much. Also, there was no need to leave us behind to contemplate the places, it felt like we were a little bit abandoned sometimes.

We had a great tour with Marcello. He gave us a really unique experience and took us to some places that I think I wouldn't be able to find by myself. I absolutely recommend his tour!

The tour was very informative and interactive. If you are visiting, Circus Maximus, La boca della veritat, Teatro Marcello. I definetly recommend you to go to those places with the tour instead of going by yourself. So many interesting informations.
