Private tour of Rome

"My husband and I booked a personal tour with LivItaly online before our vacation to Rome... Very easy to book,.. We were given detailed instructions on when and where to meet, and Patricia was already there to personally greet us... Patricia is a local and very knowledgeable of Rome... Her background in history/archeology gave us the extra education we were excited to learn about... Thank You LivItaly!"

Leslie - UK

Excellent tour

"We highly recommend this tour. My husband and I learned so much from our guide Dario. He was able to customize our two tours to compensate for my husband's mobility issues. We had never been to Rome and in between the Vatican and Colosseum we got a City Tour, visit to the Pantheon and a chance to look through a special key hole. We will never forget this experience and this city."
