Luana Riccardi Private tour guide in Rome - Italy

Luana Riccardi

Guide profile:


I am working as a licensed guide in Rome since 2000 and in Barcelona since 2009.

Whether you are a small group, a family with kids or have just a day to visit this incredible city, I will propose you many alternative tours across Rome.

We will discover together any little corner of Rome. It will be also possible to include priority entrance (skipping the queues) and special reservations to the most famous sights like the Colosseum, Vatican museums and Sistine Chapel.

There is a SPECIAL OFFER for Viator's clients if you book Rome and Barcelona together!!.

Barcelona is an incredible combination of art, nature, architecture, history, fashion, exquisite cuisine. No other city in the world has a splendid heritage of breathtaking Modernisme architecture that combines so successfully with Gothic buildings and Roman remains.

5 stars Steve J.

Luana was amazing! She provided us a wonderful experience in Barcelona! My wife, Jena and I would recommend her highly! Her knowledge during our tour brought to life Gaudi and his works and life! We now have a high appreciation for Barcelona and Gaudi. It was wonderful to have her communicate for us as we got from point "A" to "B" by cab as well! It is always reassuring to have someone speak the language fluently, gives the weary traveler a relaxing experience. Will definitely use her again!!

Tour Guide Comment: Dear Chuck, the 4 days spent with you have been lots of fun for me too!! Hope to see you again in Barcelona! Enjoy Orvieto!!

5 stars Roger C. 13 Jun 2015

I can only say good things about Luana. She was very knowledgeable and efficient but more importantly she is a lovely person to be with. She went out of her way to help my wife who has some mobility issues and was always concerned she was meeting our goals and comfort. She was very knowledgeable about Barcelona and passionate about her profession. She treats you like one of her family. She really knows Barcelona, its history, and all of its interesting aspects. She is an outstanding guide.

Tour Guide Comment: Dear Roger, the two days with you have been memorable for me too. I will never forget your enthusiasm touring with me. I am looking forward to meeting you again in 2026. Be well and lets keep in touch. All the best.

5 stars John C. 21 May 2015

We actually had a partner of Luana named Pamen Moreno. Pamen was an excellent guide very patient and knowledgeable. She was with us all day and we had a great view of Rome. Outstanding!!!! Thank you Pamen

Tour Guide Comment: Dear John,.what a pity that I was already booked when you reserved the tour. I am so glad to hear how much you enjoyed the tour with Pamen. She will be thrilled to read your review. Thanks

5 stars Matthias G. 09 Apr 2015

We had two excellent tours with Luana in Barcelona and Rome. Everything was very well organized and very much tailored to what we have been looking for (attractions, great local food, city flair etc.). She was very good with our kids (8 & 12) and created great memories for them in these two wonderful cities ! Thank you for two great days !

5 stars roberto M. 11 Feb 2015

realmente estamos sorprendidos por la amabilidad, dedicación y conocimiento que tiene Luana, es una guía extraordinaria altamente recomendable donde las horas de la excursión pasaron volando por lo entretenido que ella la hizo por todo muchas gracias Luana.-

Tour Guide Comment: Muchisimas gracias Roberto. La verdad es que ha sido un verdadero placer estar con vosotros y disfrutar de la ciudad eterna en buena compañia. Un abrazo fuerte y espero vernos pronto.

5 stars Melissa L. 03 Sep 2014

Luana referred Luciano Julizia known as Luc as a driver in Rome since she wasn't able to bring my clients around. My clients had the best time ever and Luana was amazing in setting this up. I want to thank both Luano and Luc for there expertise and professionalism they provided to my client, Mor'li Hartman. Thank you again for a job well done!!! Amazing!!!

Tour Guide Comment: thanks Melissa! Luciano will be thrilled to hear how much your clients enjoyed the eternal city.

5 stars Ana M. 15 May 2014

Excellent!!!!! Highly recommended!!!

Tour Guide Comment: Muchisimas gracias Ana. Ha sido un verdadero placer mostrarles los encantos de la ciudad eterna. Un saludo muy fuerte a todo el grupo.

5 stars Rosetta G. 06 May 2014

Spending the day with this amazing woman was the highlight of our time in Rome. Knowledgeable would be an understatement. She is educated, wise, charming and beautiful. She made certain that my father-in-law who is 84 and hard of hearing, was always within a comfortable distance in order not to miss any of the vast history she shared with us. From early morning to late afternoon, she was everything we hoped for and more. There would be no reason to hire anyone else when we return to Rome.

Tour Guide Comment: Thanks so much Rosetta! I spent a memorable day with you! And I am sure we will see again! Have a great time cruising!

5 stars David D. 24 Mar 2014

We had a party of 18 with mixed ages ranging from High School, College and older. Luana was an awesome guide who was able to keep things interesting and engage everyone in our group. We will be using her in the future for other tours. She is excellent and strongly recommended!!

Tour Guide Comment: Thanks so much David!! It was a pleasure to meet your group and hope to see in the future!! Please convey my regards to all the group!

5 stars MICHAEL S. 09 Nov 2013

Party of four traveling to the ship 2 days before boarding and found the most wonderful tour guide in the world. Luana and Rosi made us feel like family from the day we first emailed each other. From our first meeting at the hotel to begin our tour we were welcomed with hugs just like family members. For 1 1/2 days we were shown all the best sites at the right times with the greatest of knowlege of each site and knowing how and where to get photos, avoid lines and find the best places to eat

5 stars Matthew M. 31 Oct 2013

Luana could not make due to health reasons, but Cecelia stepped in and did a great job. We loved the Vatican.. what an amazing place!! We particularly enjoyed her explanations of the Vatican museums, including the Sistine Chapel. We then headed for the Colosseum which unfortunately we did not get to enter due to scheduling issues. She felt terrible and offered to pick us up anytime the next day but we could not. Finally we finished the day at the Roman Forum. We had a great tour!!

Tour Guide Comment: " Dear Matt, thanks so much for you feedback. Cecilia will be thrilled to read it. It would be nice to keep in touch with you and hope to see you in Barcelona. All the best, Luana"

5 stars Ken D. 19 Oct 2013

Luana is the best. She was having a baby but still made sure our Viator Tour was the best it could be. Please send my regards.

5 stars heather G. 20 Sep 2013

Luana is spectacular! My group booked with her in both Barcelona AND Rome. AMAZING! she was on time, knowledgable, energetic, priority access always, small places that made us feel like no one else really gets to see this but US. You will not go wrong to book with Luana. She can take care of EVERYTHING, smart, funny. just a terrific experience. She truly made our European vacation the best! Thank you Luana! best wishes to you and your family!

Tour Guide Comment: Thanks so much!! It was nice to meeting your famility. All the best

5 stars Dave S. 09 Jul 2013

We had a fantastic tour of Rome with Luana. We ended up having another family join us so were quite a big group with 4 adults and 5 children. Luana was enthusiastic and informative and kept the kids (and adults) entertained and informed. We originally did the Colosseum and Roman Forumn as well as walking tour of Rome and enjoyed the experience with Luana so much that we asked to see her again for a Vatican tour. Rome has so much history you need a guide and our families would recommend Luana.

Tour Guide Comment: thanks so much! It was nice to meeting you.

5 stars simon B. 30 Apr 2013

Luana made our trip around Rome extremely smooth and easy. We were travelling with a 12 and a 7 year old and she managed to keep them interested in the architecture and art we were seeing. She told us where the real good pizza at a real good price was away from the crowds. She booked all the tickets for us and we didn't need to queue for longer than 5 minutes! We did a 3 hour tour on two days and she kept talking about interesting facts all along! I would recommend her for your holiday no doubt!

Tour Guide Comment: I have such a nice memory of your lovely family. thanks again!

5 stars Lorna N. 22 Apr 2013

Tour guide was extremely exceptional, knowledgeable and very nice. I brought a group of African American on this tour of Rome and they are still raving about their first time experience and tour guide. They could not stop talking about their overall wonderful experience. We will do this tour again and guide is highly recommended. Thanks for the memories. Lorna, from Connecticut!

Tour Guide Comment: I really appreciate that the group enjoyed the guided tour! Hope to see you again in sunny Rome!

5 stars Brett H. 19 Oct 2012

Luana was absolutely Fantastic!! I am in the travel and tourism industry and the owner of a Travel agency in Pittsburgh, PA and Luana was absolutely great! Her knowledge of the city and wealth of history made everything that much better. I highly recommend Luana for any size party.

Tour Guide Comment: Thanks Brett! I hope to see you again, hopefully in Barcelona! I wish you all the best for your business!Luana

5 stars Peggy M. 13 Oct 2012

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you Peggy!! It has been a funny day for all of us! Lets keep in touch and hope to see you again!

5 stars Jim H. 05 Aug 2012

Luana was excellent. We used five guides while travelling over a two week period and Luana was one of the best. She is pleasant, knowledgeable and flexible. We would strongly recommend her and will arrange to use her again when we return Rome or Barcelona.

Tour Guide Comment: Thanks so much Jim! I really enjoyed the day with you. Hope to see you in Barcelona. A big hug to Corine and your daughter and her boyfriend!

5 stars Sharon S. 20 Jul 2012

It was our pleasure to have Luana as our tour guide in Rome for two days. Luana arranged for airport transfers, ground transportation for our tours around the city and tickets so we would not have to wait in line. We saw so much that we would have missed without her knowledge and planning. We were able to get to the Sistene Chapel way ahead of the crowds which made for an amazing experience. We cannot thank Luana enough for showing our family what a wonderful city Rome is and would highly recom

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you Sharon! It has been a real pleasure to meet all your family! See you hopefully in California
