FUNNY GUIDE IN ROME

 Hello, my name is Emanuele and I am a licensed tourist guide of Rome

why choose me

I’m a person who likes to be with people. I love the history of Rome and telling its stories… the magic of the ancient times of the Eternal City, the glories of the great emperors, the power of Roma Caput Mundi (“head of the world”), the thrill of the Renaissance.

my greAt passion is theatre

…so, in one moment I can portray the entry of a gladiator into the arena of the Colosseum, in another I could mimic the madness of the most reckless Emperor Nero… but the true main character of the interactive experience I propose is you! 

Feel part of the extraordinary show of the Colosseum, become one of the main characters of Genesis on the vault of the Sistine Chapel, perform the history of St. Paul of Tarsus and much more!!

This will be the experience we will have together!

This will allow you to have fun, playing with me and with your friends/loved ones on the go, learning and remembering much more, by expressing your emotions, living your personal, unforgettable and unique experience, feeling part of the life of Romans, and with a nice smile on your face.

Rome is a beautiful city. I took a chance to book a private tour with Emanuele and I can say I wasn’t expecting such a great tour! I thought I would do the usual tour, only listening to historical and art information, instead… I was totally part of it! I had never done something like this and I had so much fun. By being able to be part of the tour performing some of the historical characters, made me remember much more little words and dates that I still recall cause I had so much fun in there!! Emanuele, was so funny, engaging, and with his own bubbly personality, he involved really everybody. I also loved the poetry read on top of the Spanish steps and being part of the special Colosseum machine. Thank you so much Emanuele for making me live an unforgettable and unique experience!

Tiziana Cangiano

I visited the centre of Rome with Emanuele as my tour guide and it was a very pleasant and surprising experience. We started from the Spanish Steps to the Pantheon. He was very knowledgeable and competent the whole time, answering to all our questions. But the real surprise was his own way to involve the group making everyone interact one with another, role-playing historical characters, improvised disguise. He was able to create a carefree and harmonious climate. We ended-up laughing a lot, other than learning the roman art and culture. It was us with him creating the tour. No other guided visits in my life were so much interactive. I would do again for sure the guided visit with Emanuele and I suggest it to everybody!

Marco Molea

The magic of the city can be seen through Emanuele’s stories. He made us relive the great Ancient Rome. He had a unique and hilarious way to talk about the roman habits and everybody was so much at ease, once he showed us his way to tell about art and culture, what a nice and marvelous way!
I have been living in Rome since I was a child and I had never really realized how gorgeous my city is, this was an outstanding chance to know just a little with a great guide. Thank you so much for making the tour so interesting, informative and really really funny!
I will surely contact again Emanuele for a tour with my whole family, this is absolutely a totally different spirit to enjoy the city by acting out in role-plays (in my case I was a powerful king 🙂 and remembering so much more about the Eternal City.

ROME TOUR GUIDE

What is there to see and do in Rome, Italy? No other city in the world is more reflective of the Catholic religion than Rome, with over 900 churches. Four papal basilicas and seven pilgrimage churches are located in Rome. Each church is more ornately designed than the previous, with works by famous masters like Bernini, Raphael, Caravaggio, and Michelangelo adorning the walls. The Borghese Gallery will make you feel perfectly at home if you enjoy art. 

You can easily manage yourself entertained for at least a week where all of these Roman attractions and excavations, beautiful churches, the Vatican, fun neighborhoods like Trastevere, wonderful fountains (including the famous Trevi Fountain), delicious trattorias, a portrait of the romantic Spanish Steps, and fashionable and trendy shops combine to make Rome a chaotic and thriving metropolis.
