I am an authorized guide of Rome and its province and for more than 20 years I have been involved in the illustration of the treasures of Rome with dedication and passion for cultural dissemination. In addition to a first degree in Political Science, I have a BA in Art History and another in Classical Archaeology. I like to tell the history and art of Rome, always trying to stimulate the attention and curiosity of the participants in my tours.

Manuel was VERY informative, his knowledge of Rome was very impressive and he was able to weave a story together by showing us the sights I’d walk past multiple times and not even noticed! He left lots of time for questions and answered everything very thoroughly. He had great pictures that really helped you envision Rome 2000 years ago. If you love history definitely go on this tour!

Die Tour mit Manuel war sehr informativ und kurzweilig. Man merkt, dass er seinen Job mit Leidenschaft und Hingabe ausübt und stets bemüht ist, sein Wissen mit anderen zu teilen. Seine Erklärungen waren gut verständlich und mit vielen interessanten Fakten versehen. Ich kann die Tour auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen!
