I was born and I live in Rome. I got my University degree in languages and history in Rome. During my studies I spent long periods abroad, studyng and working. After a teaching experience in Italy and France, I started working all around Europe in tourism as a "Tour Leader", with many international Tour Operators. In 1999 I got my professional License as a Tourist Guide in Rome. Since than I have been working as a free-lance Tourrist Guide in Rome and its Province with many Travel Agencies and private customers.
speak fluently English, French and Italian!
Recent reviews of this tour guide:
Francesco was great. We only had 1 day in Rome and he meet us at our hotel with a plan and all entry tickets so we did not have to wait in lines. We moved fast from one great place to the next and he has lots of knowledge on each sight and all the art work. We will definitely recommend him to our friends and call on him when we return to Rome. When our time was finished he told us to where to have dinner and explore by ourselves.
