Paolo, private guide for Unique Tours Factory

Ancient Rome, family, underground
LANGUAGES :
Anglais/English, Français/French, Italien/Italian
Originally from Rome, I was an archaeologist for more than ten years before deciding to set aside the dusty books and archives and work with people, using my skills to show Rome to the incoming visitors. I have always loved being in contact with people and this change of career makes me really happy. On the side, I have also been a cub scout leader for 5 years and I enjoy working with families, children and teenagers alike. One of my favorite moments is when I see children's eyes lighting up and when they ask interesting questions during my tours. I also love bringing my clients to local places to enjoy some food and drinks. It is always enjoyable to break the ice and get to know each other. My speciality as a guide is Ancient Rome but I also like to talk about the Baroque and Renaissance periods of the city. ...read more
Sergio, private and professional local guide in Rome
LANGUAGES :
Italien/Italian, Anglais/English
I was born, raised and still live in Rome. Inspired by numerous family holidays aboard, I started working in tourism in 1970 and haven’t looked back since. I’ve worked mainly for leading tour companies in Italy and Europe, but over the last couple of years I’ve been based in Rome. I love this chaotic city filled where the past, present and future blend together. Guiding is an amazing job that enables me to be free, independent and out of an office! My big passion is history (the subject of my degree), everything from medieval wars to modern day politics. I love answering your questions and always try to adapt my tours to your interests and past experiences. My hobbies? Reading, concerts, the movies, skiing and food – I can give you some great restaurant recommendations. ...read more

Ewout, private and professional local guide in Rome
LANGUAGES :
Allemand/German, Italien/Italian, Anglais/English
Originally from Netherlands, I lived most of my life in Italy and traveled a lot in all parts of the world during my student life, and after. My best memories are in Laos where I did my research for my thesis while studying history in Florence. After setting-up in Rome, I became a writer and a journalist expert on Italy, especially Rome. My last book about Rome came out two months ago... Then, passionate by the italian capital, I decided to create my own tour guiding business to show the city from a local's point of view, focusing on details and anecdotes that make a city unique. Today, I see myself more as an expert companion because I believe curious visitors like to have someone they can exchange with and answer all their questions, because now everybody seeks for authenticity and real experiences. I like to focus my tours on contrasts such as Rome between reality and fiction, showing the movie locations connected to the history of Rome. What I enjoy the most is the possibility to show the city spontaneously, when my guests want to see the Coliseum, Trevi, Pantheon and the other highlights; but at the same time, when they are also interested in the hidden gems and the tours off the beaten tracks making me asking permissions in order to enter in some places usually restricted to the public access. PS : my tours could also be guided by Marije. ...read more
Tiziana, private and professional local guide in Rome

Tiziana, private guide for Unique Tours Factory

Food tour, art tour, history, Vatican
LANGUAGES :
Italien/Italian, Espagnol/Spanish, Anglais/English
Born and raised in Rome, I have been working in the tourism industry for 11 years now, first leading tours throughout Italy and later qualifying for my license as an official guide for Rome, the surrounding province and Vatican City. Before being a tour guide, I already knew a bit about Rome art and history, but when some of my foreign friends were coming to Rome, I was unable to explain them the whole history of my own city. I felt ashamed and decided to improve it, so I started to follow special courses which led me to the wonderful job of being a tour guide. I enjoy sharing my love for my beautiful city with my guests. My job allows me to meet people from all over the world, and many of them are special. Second, among the special persons I guided Jimmy Fallon, the American Comedian, and I did not know how he was ! My specialty is the archeological area of Rome and all the main sights (Coliseum, the Roman Forum...) but also Rome’s underground (ancient roman city) with its catacombs, crypts, and churches. I love it because it shows the past of the city and let us see the connections between the ancient city and the modern one. ...read more

Born in the picturesque city of Florence who influenced my passion for art, I moved later to Rome where I completed a PHD in the Academy of Fine Arts.
