In search of a new life adventure, I left my South African home and decided to head for the Eternal City. Rome has so much to explore, and I find myself learning something new about the Italian culture every day. It’s a perfect fit for me, with it’s beautiful chaos, cultural charm, and never-ending selection of delicious food, Buono!
I’m a Roman gal born and raised and I’m so proud to call the Eternal City my home. Staying true to my Italian culture, I’m a real foodie and wine fanatic. After spending a long day admiring the masterpieces in the Vatican Museums, I kick back with a cold glass of Pecorino white wine and a bowl of homemade pasta with my signature sauce.
I spend my days connecting with people in three different languages (English, Spanish & Italian) and utilizing my photographic memory, a reason why my friends & family call me 'Lucipedia'. My evenings, on the other hand, are spent cooking up a storm in the kitchen. Ever tried the Roman delicacy 'crostata'? You won't have tasted anything until you've sampled crostata from 'la cucina di Luciana' I may share my recipe with you if you're lucky ;)
Superb! We spent two weeks in Italy in August 2015 (Venice, Florence, Rome, and Praiano) and used The Roman Guy throughout our entire trip. I worked directly with Brandon on our trip planning, selecting hotels, and choosing tours. Every tour was informative and fun, and my 10-year old daughter loved them! The guides don't just spew out the facts - they're engaging and interactive, and you can tell they love what they do. The hotels and restaurants suggested were also terrific. Details were clear about pick-up times, meeting locations, and everything else you need to get you where you're going. I highly recommend The Roman Guy.K Mandala, California
When planning trips, we always consult TripAdvisor. Since we were traveling to Rome in August, one of the busiest times of the year for tourists, we decided to book our tours well ahead. We wanted a company that specialized in small groups, and found it with The Roman Guy. Oh my! We were absolutely thrilled with our tours. We took a city driving tour of Rome, the Colosseum Underground Tour, Vatican Privileged Entrance Tour and Catacomb Tour. Each and every tour was a gem. We were met on time by extremely professional tour guides and drivers. We could not be happier. Talk about money well spent! Impressive.Joanne & Wallace, Quebec
Enjoyed a fabulous tour of the Colosseum Underground, Palatine Hill and Roman Forum. Over three hours in the company of a guide(Luciana) who was passionate about her subject and who conveyed such a wealth of information in a very entertaining and engaging fashion. Really appreciated the fact that we were a small group as it enabled lots of interaction with our guide. Have been on other tours in the past with other companies where the larger group size made for an impersonal atmosphere. Loved every moment of the afternoon and fully intend to take another small group tour with the Roman Guy on my next visit.Elspeth D, Scotland
Don't worry about comparing reviews from one tour operator to another - just select the Roman Guy. You will leave Rome with a wealth of knowledge and wonderful memories. Special thanks to our guide, Tiziana on the Rome City Driving Small Group Tour. I have visited Rome many times but it was a first time visit for my brother (a scholar of Roman history). The tour was outstanding and provided a fabulous overview of Rome and combined some of the harder to get to places and best kept secrets. The Roman Guy tours are totally focussed on the needs of their clients and passionate about imparting the history of this amazing city.Jessica H, Brisbane
We took the 3-Combo Tour with The Roman Guy and absolutely loved it! Paul and Raffa were very knowledgable and engaging. History mixed with humor provided the perfect way to see and learn about Ancient Rome. From the Vatican Tour, which includes the museums, the Sistine, and St. Peter's, to the Coloseum Tour, which included The Forum, and Palntine Hill, to the Driving Tour which seemed to include everything else...the Pantheon, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, and much more, we saw Rome! Beating the crowds into the sights and having expert teachers was as good as it gets. Worth every cent! Take this tour!Alan H, Florida
