We contracted Marco for 2 days. Day one was great. He was prompt and friendly. We hit several sites and avoided the crowds for the most part. Day two he was like a different person. He was obviously anxious about something. We spend the morning at the Vatican, then he dropped off at a restaurant and completely disappeared for 2... More

Well, you guys have 7 hours tour every day with me, but on the second day you spent 2 hours eating not inviting me for lunch, not nice from you. My tour goes from the hotel 8am to 3pm, after that, on the second day I had another service and to be on time, like usually I do, I had... More

This is the second time that we have had Marco personally guide my group. A couple of years ago, he guided my family for two full days in Rome and just recently he guided a group of 17 for me.

We knew this might be our first and only trip to Rome, so we wanted to hire a private tour guide ...the best one we could find for our two days...Sept. 19 and 20...in Rome. Our research led us to Marco and his Red Shoe tours. With Marco we did not have to worry about lines or directions. And most... More

This is the second private Rome day tour I've done with Marco and once again he was an amazing host. His knowledge of history really helped set the stage for my family of four, including a nice introduction at the Vatican Museum. We saw everything we wanted in comfort and on schedule! If you're looking for the best Rome day... More

Marco is an unforgettable---in the best of possible ways--tour guide. My (now) fiance and I had a tour with him in July and it was a day that will be forever in the best memories category. Marco helped my partner plan and execute a most beautiful and touching proposal in a Roman garden restaurant. Of course, that was the highlight... More

We did two separate days of private touring with Marco in late June 2016. We were a party of two adults and two teenaged boys and Marco was the perfect fit for us. He picked us up at our hotel both mornings and in two days, we saw everything that we had on our list of must-sees in Rome. His... More

We recently had the pleasure of spending a day in Rome with Marco and I can say without a doubt it has been our favorite private tour from our trip (we've been on 6 so far). No, the tour is not cheap, but you truly get what you pay for! Marco is extremely knowledgeable and tailors the tour to your... More

Marco was referred to us by friends so our expectations were high and he certainly delivered. I thought the price was high for a tour but it was so much more. He is a proud Roman and the information that he provides along the way was beyond any history book I have ever read. We were in awe and hit... More

My family (2 adults and 2 teenagers), thouroghly enjoyed our tour of Rome with Marco. He was oganised with very good coomunications leading up to our visit. He arrived at our hotel on time and with his knowledge and experience he provided a very comprehensive tour. Given it was peak tourist time, Marco was exceptional at 'beating the lines' and... More

Marco made our trip to Rome the trip of a lifetime. We toured with him for 2 days around Rome. Marco took us through the Vatican himself, as he is a Vatican guide. We also toured with him via horse back, and he arranged our trip to Pompeii and Capri. We enjoyed every minute of our time with Marco. He... More

Staying in Trevi

Neighbourhood Profile
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighbourhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
