I am an American living in Rome since 2003. Married to an Italian, I Graduated from The American University of Rome. Working as a tour guide in and around Rome. I have a passion for history, travel and Italian Cuisine. Laughter is the key ingredient to a fulfilling life and humor is big part of what I bring to every experience. Master storyteller, my tours tend to be humorous bordering on Blasphemous. I focus on the stories behind the art, artist, architecture and Archaeology. Lets face it, nobody remembers all the the names and dates. They remember the Stories. Over the past 10 years, I’ve showed the beauty and secret of Rome and Italy to more than 7,000 and received thousands of 5-star reviews. Now I’m bringing this masterpieces to your home with this online experience.

This was a fabulous overview of Caravaggio and his art. We learned so much and really enjoyed getting to know more about Italy and the Baroque period. The quiz at the end is so fun. Recommend this tour!

I don't think he treated me as part of his program because he muted my micphone from beginning to the very end!!!Before the class was almost done, he reopened my micphone and asked me to give his program 5 star rate!Really? Are all the programs onAirbnb like this??? Sorry, I can't give you 5 star rate and I also need to tell others the truth about you program!!!

A wonderful armchair travel experience during COVID-19 lockdown. The content, format and host of this experience were all top-notch. Michael brought a lot of knowledge and personality to the virtual tour. I was extremely impressed by the visual presentation of the content -- the map experience was particularly interesting (of course, seeing Caravaggio paintings is always awesome). This was best travel value I've experience. It was a wonderful 60 min "trip" to Rome and a reminder that traveling (even in a different format) feeds my soul. Thank you Michael!

This was a fantastic tour! It was our first virtual experience and it could not have gone better. Michael was a knowledgeable, personable, and very funny host, and he made the art of Caravaggio come alive with wonderful stories and history. We could not recommend this more! And we are now eagerly waiting for Michael's next virtual tour to become available on AirBnB!

Mike had a great energy and passion for Rome that he managed to bring to life through the screen. He took time to answer all of questions and kept everyone engaged. Really fun escape from sheltering in place!
