We had the most amazing experience with Fiamma. Our tour of the Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Capital Hill was thorough and incredibly interesting. Fiamma's knowledge and passion for history really made ancient Rome come to life for us. We were lucky to see these sites with Fiamma and had so much fun.

We had an amazing afternoon with Fiamma at Vatican City. She taught us so much about the history of the Sistine Chapel before we saw it which added such value to the experience. Her knowledge of the Vatican Museum contents and St. Peter's Basilica was also extensive and made the tour even more interesting. It was a very special tour thanks to Fiamma. We loved it!

Tour Guide Comment: Dear Lauren, it has been more than a pleasure introducing to you my beautiful city. I'm sure I'll see you soon back, so you'll know my secret Rome.

5 stars Philip S. 29 May 2017

the time we spent with Fiamma was absolutely enjoyable, she is very knowledgeable and gives you great insights into the history surrounding Rome and it sights, she tell you the who what and why about what you are looking at not just pointing out the obvious. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for a guide who not only will be fun but you also learn and see the sights of Rome.

5 stars Gayle A. 26 Sep 2016

I do not have enough space to explain how wonderful our day was with Fiamma! Brilliant, fun, interesting, full of life and full of energy!! We were a group of 8 with only one day. She gave very specific directions for us to take ahead of time and arranged our day so that we saw everything each of us wanted to see. She worked magic to make our one day in Rome the very best excursion ever! Her love for Rome and Roman history knows know bounds. We simply loved her and you will too. ❤️❤️❤️

Tour Guide Comment: Dear Gayle, it has been so nice and funny taking you around! I really hope to see you soon back to Rome, I have so many other places to show you!!! Hugs from the eternal city.

Fiamma was wonderful. She worked with us via emails concerning the tours and what we wanted to see. She even re-worked the tour that we had scheduled, because of rain. She is a wealth of information that not only entertained us by bringing history to life, but put things in perspective. She obviously has a deep knowledge of Roman history. I would use her again without hesitation.

5 stars Theresa C. 05 Mar 2016

We booked 2 tours with Fiamma, the Vatican and the Coliseum. She dealt brilliantly with a group of 6 aged 21-72 with a mixture of French and English speakers. She came to our apartment at 9am and arranged us into taxis and got us through the queues and security checks with ease.

She has a huge amount of knowledge about Rome and makes everything so interesting that we felt pity for other tourists with audio guides. Our day with her was the highlight of our short trip. We 100% recommend Fiamma

We had two days of touring with Fiamma and they were packed full of information from a historical perspective (which is what we enjoy). She catered to what we needed and she was very knowledgeable about everything we went to see. Even as we were walking to our next destination, she had plenty of information to tell us about things we saw along the way.She was able to answer our questions as well. If you are ever in Rome and need a tour guide, we highly recommend her for your touring needs!

Tour Guide Comment: It has been a pleasure showing you the Colosseum, the Forum, the Vatican, the squares and the Appian way. Thank you for your appreciation, this is the best award for my job. I'm waiting for you, to show you a Rome off the beaten tracks. See you soon

5 stars Martina G. 26 Feb 2015

We did two tours with Fiamma. She is extremely knowledgeable, makes things come alive and is fun to be with. The days spent with her left us feeling as if we have acquired a new friend. Will highly recommend her for any tour.

Tour Guide Comment: Dear Martina, thank you for your kind words. Showing you Tivoli and Ostia Antica it has been a real pleasure. I hope to see you soon back to Rome.

5 stars Robert J. 13 Sep 2014

Fiamma gave us great tours of ancient Rome and the Vatican. We highly recommend her.

5 stars Valeri M. 08 Sep 2013

Very knowledgeable about the different sites in Tivoli, very professional and friendly. We had a nice experience and can recommend her.

Tour Guide Comment: Dear Valeri, thank you very much for your kind review. I hope to see you soon back to Rome!

5 stars Eugene M. 15 Apr 2013

We were warmly greeted by Fiamma at our hotel lobby on the morning of the tour. During the two hour trip to Assisi by train, Fiamma verv capably provided us with just the right amount of historical information.

She paced the tour so that my wife and I felt unrushed and it allowed us to spend peaceful moments in prayer and reflection. Her recommendation for a lunch venue did not disappoint. Her familiarity with and extensive knowledge of Assisi made this tour a highlight of our pilgrimage to Rome

Tour Guide Comment: Dear Eugene, it was a pleasure spending the day with you. I hope to see soon back to Italy. Fiamma

5 stars Justin K. 24 Apr 2012

I recently took the Vatican Museum tour and had a fantastic time. Fiamma was very good at bringing many of the pieces of art to life with background information which help you better understand the historical significance/impact of a piece. Or sometimes just simply interesting facts about an item that you might not have noticed. She was also very helpful in terms of information outside of the tour, such as things to see and do in Rome during trip.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you Justin, I've loved showing you the Vatican city. I hope that our roads will cross again. Fiamma
