About me

Ciao, a few words about myself: instead of a Tour Guide, I'd rather be considered your "Local Expert"! I was born and raised in Rome, where I still live in a nice and quiet area close to the Vatican. Notwithstanding that my teaching experiences lasted only a few months when I taught Italian for foreigners, most of my colleagues call me: "The Professor", may be because I look pretty serious. . !! To tell the truth I have a deep sense of Humour, expecially when I talk about our politicians!!

I started working in tourism in 1970 (for Hertz rent a car). In 1980 I moved to the Reception of a centrally located Hotel in Rome (front desk staff at Hotel Seven Hills). In 1987 I got my licence as a Italy and Europe Tour Guide.

In the following. . 20 years (Oh mamma mia!) I worked mainly leading Tours in Italy and Europe, but in the last four/five years mostly in Rome only: I love this caotic city! A great mixture of past, present and, why not, future! One day I was leading as a location manager (I did that too. . . !) a BBC crew filming here by the Campo dei Fiori fruit and vegetable market. . . Talking with one of the speakers I told him that Rome. . "Is like a beautiful woman. . sometimes you hate her. . . but you can't live without her. . . " He liked this so much that he wanted me to repeat it in front of the video camera: what a shame!!!

Do not hesitate to contact me for any curiosity, info, request you might have: your questions are more then welcome and dear to me. .

If you haven't booked an hotel yet, please know we have a small but quiet apartment to rent five minutes walk from St Peter's Basilica. It's called Ave Hospes: if it's available, all Toursbylocals travellers will get the best prices and a welcome bottle of good local wine. . :-)
