What you'll do

Our journey starts in Piazza Venezia, the geographic center of the city. A chance to see the balcony where Mussolini declared war to Poland in 1939, the house where Michelangelo lived and died and the building rising solemnly and majestically to remember Victor Emmanuel II, the king of a just unified Italy in 1861. We will then head to the Capitoline Hill and its square, designed by Michelangelo. The square hosts the biggest and most important temple of Rome (the one of Jupiter, Juno and Minerva), still preserved in its foundations. In the late Republic, part of the hill became the seat of the ancient state archive of the city and nowadays the mayor's office! The Musei Capitolini, first museum of the world (opened in 1471), will be the cherry on the cake with the statues of the 'She wolf' with Romulus and Remus and the majestic one of Marcus Aurelius, emperor of Rome!

Learn more about Ferdinando

Ferdinando

Hi everyone! My name is Ferdinando, a PhD in archaeology and an official guide of Rome since 2009. I'm thrilled to meet you and take you around the eternal city! I believe a tour must be an interactive experience! Your sensibility, wishes, inclinations, tastes and background become mine, an essential contribution on my next tour. Exploring Rome with you is a moment of cultural exchange for me and a personal benefit not only as a tour guide but mainly as a person. I meet people and I travel with my imagination and so my philosophy is that touring Rome with me is never a one-way conversation, but a chance for a reciprocal growth.
