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.

5 stars for this brilliant walking tour. Marcello’s “time machine” did not disappoint. The tour was well-crafted and tailored to give the right fix for history aficionados. He painted a vivid picture with his words/stories. The etymology lessons were a nice bonus. Thank you for taking us back in time because it is indeed very important to reflect and look into the past in order to avoid making the same mistakes again.
