Tiziana Gargaro

Guide profile:

Ciao, my name is Tiziana Gargaro, I was born and raised in Rome and I am a professional tour guide of this city. If you are in Rome only for a few days and really want to maximize your time and see as much as you can, without being rushed or herded around - you want flexibility to spend the time you want at each location - then my tours give you that possibility.

If you want to know what clients think of me, take a look at tripadvisor reviews at Divine Rome - Rome Tours.

I have an excellent knowledge of Roman history, architecture and culture and I love my job. Being very proud of my city, I increasingly enjoy showing Rome to tourists from all over the world. My aim is to offer you tailor-made half- or full-day tours. I have lived here almost all my life and I would like to share my experience with you.

Whether it's your first visit to Rome or your tenth, my aim is for you to leave my tour feeling like you've learned tons of fascinating information and have had enormous fun doing it.

I look forward to being your private guide and to sharing with you my favourite places in and around Rome.

5 stars Carrie B. 06 Jul 2018

I booked two tours with Tiziana, and I had a wonderful time. I was traveling to Rome by myself, and I wanted to really understand the history of Rome and be able to take it all in. Tiziana's knowledge of Rome is excellent. She is easy to understand and asked me lots of questions to make sure I was getting what I needed out of my booking. I really enjoyed my days with her and I highly recommend her as a tour guide!

5 stars Kerryn B. 25 Jun 2018

My husband and I had a fantastic private tour with Tiziana and would highly recommend her for any tour of Rome. Her knowledge was amazing and we had lots of laughs along the way. She was very professional and made the experience so enjoyable and easy, even though there were crowds of people! Thanks Tiziana for a memorable time in Rome!

5 stars Morgan M. 13 Jun 2018

Great afternoon Tiziana! Would definitely recommend booking your private tour with her. Very informative and good pace.

5 stars Denise S. 09 Jun 2018

Tiziana was absolutely phenomenal! We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a tour guide in Rome. She is very knowledgeable and provided us with so much information that we will treasure for a lifetime.

She deserves 10 stars!

5 stars Sheila S. 24 May 2018

Tiziana was extremely knowledgeable about all of Rome. We hired her for two days of tours and she far exceeded our expectations. We were a family of 4, traveling with 2 boys, 18 and 21. We did an 8 hour car tour of Rome and a 3 hour walking tour of Baroque Rome. She was very engaging, friendly, funny and brilliant. She is top notch and I can’t imagine there is anything better than Tiziana. We were all pleasantly surprised that we would all connect so well with a stranger. She joined us fo

5 stars Cassandra S. 01 May 2018

Our experience with Tiziana was just about perfect! We had very little time in Rome and wanted to make the most of it but have a very personal experience. She worked with us, via email, to design a tour that was terrific. She is very professional, with a great sense of humor and flexibility. After a week of cruise sponsored tours via coach which were sometimes exhausting for many reasons, spending time with Tiziana in Rome was a highlight of our trip.

5 stars Roberta H. 29 Mar 2018

Absolutely fantastic. She was so knowledgable, personable and fun to tour with. I would recommend her to all. Perfect tours.

5 stars Robert A. 26 Mar 2018

Tiziana was a joy! She helped us navigate around the hordes of people to get the most out of our Vatican visit. Her knowledge of the art work in the Vatican Museum, the chapel and St.Peters was invaluable. We would book her again for other tours.

5 stars Merilyn K. 10 Dec 2017

We were a family group of 5 from Australia. This was a great way of seeing Rome. We did a 3 hour walking tour. Tiziana engaged our three teenagers in conversation which helped them also gain an appreciation of the different aspects of the tour. We went back and did some of the things she pointed out so the 3 hours turned into a full day of activities. Thankyou

5 stars Joan N. 04 Nov 2017

Tiziana was over the top excellent as was our driver. She planned an excellent tour for our day in Rome that did not include the usual tourist sites (we have been many times) and we had a fabulous time.

5 stars Russell M. 15 Oct 2017

Tiziana was great! There were 5 of us, which made us a "Herding Cats" challenge! We hired her for 2 tours, including a Rome City tour and another of "Ancient Rome". She arranged for all transportation, was very knowledgeable and patient with all of our questions. She had a great sense of humor and her English was excellent. Well done!

Tiziana is an outstanding guide!!! I cannot recommend her highly enough!

5 stars Cathy M. 25 Jul 2017

Tiziana is a wonderful guide. She is highly knowledgeable, professional, enthusiastic, flexible and makes the tour fun. We also hired Tiziana for a day-trip to Tivoli...which was FABULOUS. If time allows, I highly recommend Tivoli. The gardens of Villa d’Este are stunning and Hadrian’s Villa is very interesting. I will definitely use her again and I highly recommend her. Thanks, Tiziana for making our time in Rome so wonderful.

5 stars Gwen R. 19 Jul 2017

We all loved Tiziana! She had a challenge meeting the needs of our group of 7 family members, ranging in ages 12 to 83. She was able to set a comfortable pace for us while making certain we saw all of the most important sights. We were impressed with her knowledge and ability to communicate it and are grateful for the time we spent with her.Definitely one of the highlights of our trip!

5 stars Paul A. 03 Jun 2017

Tiziana was a full service tour guide. Full of energy and knowledge that turned our visit into one of adventure and learning. Coupled with the fact that she provided transportation from and to our various locations, and she had a wonderful driver who could maneuver in the Roma traffic, made the day much more manageable. We knew the challenge of seeing all that we wanted to enjoy in one day, and she was able to pull it off in style, including a wonderful Italian lunch. It was a wonderful day.

5 stars Jean L. M. 28 May 2017

Tiziana customized tours for us on 2 days and I was very happy that we booked her. She was so accommodating from planning to picking us up and then making restaurant reservations for us on the fly. She was so pleasant and easy to get along.

5 stars Damian R. 16 May 2017

Tiziana ha sido una guía extraordinaria, puntual, muy conocedora de la ciudad y llena de entusiasmo lo que nos hizo las visitas muy agradables a la vez que interesantes. Tiene un nivel de español excelente. Las visitas del Coliseo y del vaticano han sido fenomenales, y Tiziana las adapto a lo que mas nos interesaba. Así que fue una experiencia genial.

5 stars sherry O. 04 May 2017

5 stars Debbie D. 22 Sep 2016

G reat great very informative, enjoyed emensly,

5 stars Per G. 06 Sep 2016

We had the fantastic tour with Tiziana.

Now we know so much more about the Vatican, it's history, the art and not least the most important popes, who made this marvellous place possible.

Tiziana is not only a knowing and competent guide - she is a beautiful and charming person, who we are glad to recommend to everybody visiting Rome and want to learn more of this gordeous place.

5 stars Steve M. 21 Aug 2016

Tiziana was exceptional. We only had one day to see Rome with our own preferred destinations. She had the day prepared from beginning to end. Her and our driver, Andre, worked together so we got picked up at locations that kept us on our tour schedule. Having a private vehicle and tour guide is the best way to see Rome or any touristy location. Even if we had a few days, I would recommend a private tour guide over any group tours.

5 stars Jodi S. 30 Jul 2016

Fantastic tour and tour guide! My husband and I and three children, (11,13,15), spent the most wonderful day in Rome with Tiziana and her driver Andres. She is so knowledgeable of Roman history and art, as well as plenty of fun facts to keep the kids entertained. We communicated several times prior to our trip, to personalize our tour. Her flexibility and suggestions were perfect. Tiziana was also very thoughtful of the timing of our trip, avoiding lines and traffic. Great day!!!

5 stars john T. 28 Jul 2016

Grandparents and two grandkids 16 and 12 Top notch tour with guide and driver. She engaged all of our ages and was on time. We saw more than we could on our own and the guide information made the tour fun and very informative. A five plus tour for both guide and driver.

5 stars Maximo H. 12 Jul 2016

Altamente recomendada. Habla perfecto español. Supo trabajar con un niño inquieto de 7 años y una adolescente erudita al mismo tiempo. Esperamos volver a encontrarnos con Tiziana. Hasta entonces, un fuerte abrazo.

5 stars Bob A. D. M. 10 Jun 2016

Tiziana was an excellent Guide as we toured Rome.. She made our trip to Rome so comfortable and unintimidating. She was so passionate of her home town and it's amazing history that it is infectious. She was patient with us and helped us navigate the metro and this great city. Tiziana and her time guiding us will be part of the highlights we share with our family when we return. I highly recommend booking a tour with Tiziana.

5 stars Lisa B. 29 Mar 2016

Tiziana was WONDERFUL! She knows Rome and Italy and history. She brought visual aids to help us imagine how structures looked in Ancient Rome. Tiziana patiently answered all of our questions and allowed us to set the pace. She has a lovely sense of humor and is beautiful to listen to. We highly recommend Tiziana!

5 stars Edward P. 03 Dec 2015

Tiziana was the perfect tour guide for us. With her guidance we were able to get an understanding of life in Rome during ancient times . My husband and I love History and we walked away with an experience we will never forget .

5 stars Juani L. M. 21 Mar 2015

Gracias Tiziana por habernos explicado lo mejor de Roma con tanto cariño y conocimiento. No podíamos esperar nada mejor de una romana de pura cepa que, además, tiene la gracia de haber aprendido español a la perfección en el mismo Cádiz!! Mi familia y yo nos hemos sentido como en casa con la compañía y la profesionalidad de esta guía. La recomendamos de corazón. Gracie Tiziana.

5 stars John G. 27 Feb 2015

Tiziana is a delightful and extremely knowledgeable of all things Rome. Our tours with her - were truly learning experiences. Tiziana enriched the area’s history with insightful anecdotes and her English is perfect. It was fun being with Tiziana and we even shared a gelato at her special “hideaway “spot. We loved having Tiziana as our guide, and will certainly choose her again.

5 stars Jia L. 02 Jul 2014

Tiziana your tours are fantastic! My favorite thing of the tour was at the Colosseum. I learned that in an earthquake part of the wall collapsed and Colosseum means big head of the emperor. My favorite book is the Gladiator book you showed me . I loved eating the pine nuts that we found and you opened for us to eat. I also like when we walked through the Roman forum and see the arches.

Thank you so much for the great tour!

My wife and I hired Tiziana for a Rome tour. She was great. Friendly and knowledgeable and a lot of fun. We usually don't write reviews but wanted to because she was so good. We highly recommend her!

4 stars Martina C. 10 Apr 2017

Tiziana is a great guide! Conoce muchisimo y le encanta compartirlo! Hablo español con nuestros hijos e ingles/español con nosotros. Siempre atenta a nuestras preguntas....

El tiempo pasa rapidisimo en la visita conTiziana! El tour es largo y cuando hace calor/brilla el sol, se hace cansador. Llevar agua!!

4 stars ANTONIA D. 08 Oct 2014

Tiziana really knows her history of Rome, you can tell she truly loves what she does and where she is from and that reflects in her tours! She planned everything according to our interests, and knew how to navigate through all of the crowds very quickly!

4 stars Vanessa H. 09 Sep 2014

We wanted to explore Palazzo Doria Pamphilj and the Basilica of San Clemente with an expert at our shoulder. Tiziana was informative, entertaining and fun; she is cosmopolitan and it never felt like she was working from a script. Do use her. She was the best of our 3 guides in Rome and Florence and by far the cheapest too!
