You’ve figured it out reading my webpage: I’d love to take you anywhere in or near Rome! Although I’ve tried to create a complete list of my visits, the list is actually endless… Especially because I’m happy to customize and tailor tours to meet your needs.
If the Tiber River possesses very little charm today, thank poorly thought-out, modern urban planning! When the embankments were built beside the River as flood control in the late 1800s / early 1900s, they segregated it from the town it had always nurtured (and occasionally flooded). We'll discover how the Tiber was once the city's economic backbone, an easy means of transportation, a source of rest and relaxation, and employment for the ferrymen who transported people from one bank to the the other.
Jews settled in Rome almost two millenia before Pope Paul IV instated a Ghetto in 1555. Today very little of Paul IV's Ghetto is left. What a delight to discover, however, that Rome's Jewish Community has left signs of its continuing existence in the ancient, medieval, renaissance, and modern city!
Rome's historic center is an outdoor layer-cake, offering surprises at every turn. And they are from wildly different centuries... So while we meander through Rome's downtown, we'll discover ancient temples, Renaissance squares, Baroque fountains, and Enlightenment masterpieces like the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain.
