  • Very pleased with our tour

    We had a great tour in Rome. Guilia was very knowledgeable and professional. She was very concerned about my wife’s mobility issues and adjusted the tour for us. Christiano was very professional and a great driver. Should we get back to Rome we’ll certainly use your company and I’ll recommend you to others

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Special thanks to Luca!

    Thank you so much to Luca for the fun and informative trip through the Vatican. Luca knows his stuff!!! He was FULL of knowledge and made the visit so much more meaningful. The LivItaly guides really know what they are doing and how to make the most of your trip for you! We actually did the full day - Vatican, drive to different points, then the colosseum. We had already visited a lot of the places that are normally on the drive so Luca made new suggestions & arranged everything with the driver for us! We highly recommend LivItaly!!!!!
