I am a private freelance Tourist Guide of Rome and the Vatican, fully qualified and licensed by the Provincia di Roma. My tours will unlock the mysteries of Ancient Rome and reveal the beauty and symbolism of the renaissance art of Michelangelo and Raphael. Don't follow the herd .... take a personalised tour with me.

We learned about Stuart from a mutual acquaintance in the UK, who advised us not to try to visit the Vatican and St. Peter’s without Stuart, as he was “brilliant”. So, in planning our trip, I contacted Stuart a few months ahead. He responded right...More

Hi there. Unfortunately we are both fully booked those days, so I'm afraid I can't help you this time. We are just 2 freelance tourist guides, rather than a travel agent / tour operator. Best wishes. Have a great trip. Stuart
