Marco Pontuali Private tour guide in Rome - Italy

Marco Pontuali

Guide profile:

A very warm welcome from me, Marco Pontuali. I grew up in Rome, Italy, where I also studied and degreed in Tourism, Art and Languages. But my real education came around the world since 1992 I spent one third of my adult life living out of a suitcase in the Tourism field and it has shaped my thinking. I have been energetically leading tour groups through Italy and Europe for over a decade. I decided to become a local guide in my region, there is nowhere on earth as great as in Rome and surroundings with all its history, culture, art, landscapes and diversity. I am lucky to be a guide in the most fabulous city and proud to show it to you.

Whether you are a first time visitor or seasoned traveller, as a qualified Guide I aim to help make your visit interesting and unique, through my skills both of entertainment and guiding to make any tour very enjoyable and educational. My tour include what’s world famous but also what’s less known. A less invasive type of tourism, with slowly paced tours, less crowded places – off the beaten path- whenever possible and special stops.

I can suggest tours or help you plan that exclusive, individual and personal itinerary which is exactly to your liking (or dedicated to your interests), informative, and above all, fun. I guide you in Rome or further a-field into our superb countryside, visiting other fine towns, archeological sights and hilltop-villages.

ROME HIGHLIGHTS: Panoramic tours of the city, Piazzas of Rome, Ancient Rome, Christian Rome. Fancy a stroll? Check out our list of exclusive city walks - a healthy, eco-friendly and fun way to see Rome.

PRIVATE TOURS: how about your very own chauffeured sight-seeing tour in a private car, van or limo?

CORPORATE EVENTS & INCENTIVE SCHEMES: I can tailor events specifically for your business needs.
