Francesca Romani Private tour guide in Rome - Italy

Francesca Romani

Guide profile:

***Please write me an e-mail before booking! Grazie! Thank you!***

Hello! My name is Francesca and I am a licensed tour guide of Rome, the eternal city.

I am also an AIS (Italian Sommelier Association) Sommelier, so if you have my same love and passion for wine, your tour with me can be really unique!

I live in the amazing area of the Castelli Romani now (the beautiful "Roman Castles"), not too far away from Rome and the summer residence of the Pope, surrounded by many vineyards, with lots of great and less known attractions to be discovered.

I started to work as a tour guide long time ago at the National Prehistoric Museum of Rome with kids. Meanwhile, I worked for an American non-profit organization based in Italy and was a tour guide whenever possible. It was clear from the very beginning that working as a tour guide was incredibly interesting and satisfying!

So, I have decided then to be a full time tour guide!

I have a degree in Archaeology and Rome, my hometown, is my real passion!

I will introduce you to Rome by describing its wonderful beauties and talking about its thousand-year culture: you will enjoy my entertaining and relaxing tours!

You will relive the ancient emotions of the “Eternal City” and will discover the soul, the mysteries and the passions of Rome. During my tours you will not only get an extensive and special comprehension of the art and archaeology of the city in an easy and enjoyable way, but you will learn a lot on things to see, places to go, and foods to try!

I hope to have You among one of my next special guests!

Arrivederci a Roma!

Francesca

Francesca has a wealth of knowledge to share and tailors its delivery very well for her audience. She was well worth the price and more than worth the time. We will definitely book with her again.

Francesca is an amazing guide. She helped our family pack in a full day in Rome, she got us into all the sites without waiting in long lines. She had so much knowledge and a great sense of humor. She kept things fast paced, which was perfect. She did a great job of fitting in with all our diverse family member personalities. We got to see all the key site in Rome and everyone felt it was our best day and she was the best guide we had during our holidays! Come to Canada and visit any time!!!

Francesca Romani gave our family a thoroughly informative and entertaining tour of the Vatican museums, the Sistine Chapel and St.Peters. She was an absolute encyclopedia of information and she made a concentrated effort to pitch her tour to our kids (aged 8 and 9) and us. We could have saved some money and gone through ourselves but we would have missed out on all the details and history of the pieces and places. Highly recommended.

Francesca is a walking talking encyclopedia. She is an absolute delight to be with and has 3 main qualities - She is extremely knowledgeable, is very polite and totally flexible. We loved seeing the main sights of Rome with her and she simply would not tire. I would recommend her to everybody as the best in Rome tour guides

Francesca was really a perfect tour guide. I could not be more pleased. She took the time to learn my interests (before I arrived) and then tailored the tour specifically for me. She was enthusiastic, energetic, and enlightening. A virtual fountain of information, she flowed with insights on the history, people, and culture of Rome. Not only would I highly recommend her, I am already planning my next trip and look forward to her exemplary guide service again. Five stars.

Tour Guide Comment: Grazie Mr. Brian! Thank you for your great feedback! It was a great pleasure for me to guide you through the alleways of my city. So, I hope to meet you soon! Francesca
