Eyes of Rome & Stefania are amazing
May 2019
We had the privilege to enjoy two amazing days with Stefania on private city walks & trip to the Colosseum & Vatican. We skipped all the queues to the Colosseum & Vatican with stefania as our private guide. Stefania is simply amazing with her local knowledge as a Art Historian, Industrial Archaeologist.

It is yes and yes a must do with eyes of Rome

Colosseum and Vatican City tours
Jun 2019
My wife and I setup a tour of the Colosseum and Pantheon with Stefania at Eyes of Rome. It was our first trip to Italy. Stefania met us near our hotel for cappuccino before we walked over to the Colosseum. For those that are considering a tour and not make a go of it on your own, I HIGHLY recommend not only a tour, but a private tour which provided a personal touch that allowed a continuous discussion learning all about the history of our tour. It would have been near impossible to learn all this before hand and truly understand it as we walked around the sites. Stefania did a fabulous job and was extremely knowledgeable on the history of Italy and the locations we toured. She was also very patient with all my questions and if we needed to spend more time at a particular spot.

We were so impressed that I called Eyes of Rome the next day and setup another tour with Stefania to guide us through the Vatican. We plan on taking our kids (age 18 and 21) to Italy next summer (2021) and will be calling Eyes of Rome requesting Stefania as our tour guide.

Fascinating tour with Azzurra as our guide.
Oct 2019
We booked this three hour tour through our hotel. Azzurra was very friendly and enthusiastic from the outset. We were a family party of four including two boys aged 16 and 10 and she tried hard to keep them interested during the tour. We began in the Forum and ended in the Colosseum arena during which time Azzurra highlighted the fascinating history of both places. I would highly recommend this tour and our very knowledgeable guide Azzurra.

Amazing Alessandro
Oct 2019 • Couples
My boyfriend and I spent the day with Alessandro touring the Vatican museum, Colosseum, Roman forum, and many other sites. He was both informative and entertaining and made the 6 hours of touring fly by. As and archeologist, Alessandro was able to bring the world of Ancient Rome to life and answer all of our questions easily. I would highly recommend Alessandro for all you’re touring needs .

Wonderful tour
Jul 2019 • Family
We did a private tour of the Colosseum, Roman forums plus Palatine Hill tour. Since we were seven people, the agency sent a minivan to pick us up at our hotel. Katie, our guide, also met up with us at the hotel. She was so knowledgeable, friendly, and enthusiastic... she really made our tour fun despite it being 93 degrees out. Her way of explaining things was through storytelling which made the tour fun for all of us (9 years old to 72).

I totally recommend This company. They have an amazing group of customer representatives that answer emails promptly and great guides. Thank you for a wonderfully insightful tour!

Francesco (aka “Fat Frankie”) is the best!
This tour is worth every penny. Francesco took great care of us - a family of 5 ranging in age from 12 to 75. His enthusiasm and vast wealth of historical knowledge kept us all engaged and entertained for 3 1/2 hours in the blazing Roman sun. His post-tour lunch recommendation was perfect too. Highly recommend him and Eyes of Rome!

Exceptional Tour and Storyteller - Katie Farrar

My wife, two adult daughters, and I greatly enjoyed the private tour provided by Katie Farrar. She was warm, engaging, and extremely knowledgable. She provided the right amount of detail regarding the history with humor. She also provided the information in an easy and understandable manner. We recommend this tour and Katie highly, and would use her for additional tours at any time. Thanks again, Katie.

ROBERTA MADE ALL THE DIFFERENCE
Nov 2018 • Couples
Roberta is outstanding. She met us at our hotel and we instantly liked her. I seriously don't think anyone knows as much Roman history as she does. We wanted to tour the Colosseum. I only wish we could have went on more tours but we didn't stay in Rome that long. We highly recommend this tour company and Roberta. Hopefully we shall meet again in the near future.
