"A Friend in Rome" is a new personal way to build up YOUR tour! The itinerary is discussed and created with you, based on a deep knowledge of the city of Rome and an informal friendly attitude to let you feel at ease. The tour is private just for your and your party, at your pace and focused on what you are really interested in seeing and enjoying in town!From now on, you too have a friend in Rome!
