Your longing for the Eternal City is hitting hard? No problem! On this live online experience, you’ll feel as you are already walking down the cobblestones!

How does it feel to live in a city which feels almost like a movie backdrop? Do the Romans still get excited when walking past the Colosseum on their way to work?

How do you shop, move around, manage the crazy traffic, avoid gaining weight while still enjoying pizza, pasta, gelato and the occasional glass of wine?

And: how do I navigate 3000 years of history and the largest concentration of cultural heritage in the world as a tourist? How do I even plan my way around, if there’s so much to see and time is limited? 

What should I not miss? What’s the most common mistake travelers make when planning a trip to Italy?

Dive headfirst into Rome’s amazing history, get facts, data, tips and tricks to plan a perfect trip to Rome in this 1-hour long presentation, with plenty of time for an in-depth Q&A session (total duration of the experience is about 1h30’).

What is a live virtual tour?

In my live virtual tours, we meet on Zoom at an agreed time for the tour selected (please download the free app Zoom Meetings on your PC, tablet or smartphone; type in the code you receive from me, and you are good to go!). It will be either just you and your family if you have booked a private tour, or it might be a group of people from different parts of the world if you choose the join-in option.

It is not a pre-recorded video, but a live online experience with your expert local guide. Using slides, videos and animations, I’ll lead you to explore some of the most amazing places in Rome in depth, in a way that wouldn’t be possible when visiting in person. Plus, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to interact, ask questions, take part in games and quizzes, meet other people on the tour!

Why choose a live virtual tour? Because...

  • you’ll be able to experience the art work literally “zooming in”, discovering details impossible to see when you are standing in front of it, enjoying it while you make yourself comfortable.
  • most popular tourist venues are often overcrowded, so it’s not always possible to really enjoy the details and take the time needed to fully soak in the place.
  • it is a wonderful opportunity to have a family get-together even if you are spread in a dozen cities: just grab a drink or a coffee and meet on Zoom with your guide and your dear ones, to explore one of the must-sees every traveler has on his bucket list.
  • it is a perfect opportunity to get prepared for the trip you’ve been dreaming about for so long, in order to get the most out of it once you’ll be on site.
  • it is the best way to relish in some great memories after your trip is over, to ask all the questions you would have loved to ask and never had the opportunity to get answered.

You can either book your private virtual tour, so all family members and friends can take part in it, and the Q&A session will be tailored to your needs and interests; or you can book a spot on a “join-in” basis on one of the scheduled days. The latter option means that you’ll enjoy the tour alongside with other travelers from around the world.

Private tour is 70,00 EUR.

Join-in is 10,00 EUR per connection.
