Kylie

I’m Kylie and I grew up in Brisbane, Australia far away from any conceptual idea of Italy and its’ incredible history. It was a trip to Rome in 2009 that began my obsession with the city, especially the stories of the artists and how they challenged the politics of their day. On returning to Australia I became restless, and within the next coming years I moved to Florence to begin a new degree in Art History.

In 2013 I moved from Florence to Rome and have since been studying whilst working as a guide. Throughout my time in Italy continued study has increased my knowledge to encompass a greater appreciation of history, cultural habits of Italy’s unique regions, and a credited knowledge of Italian wines.

There is no end to Italy’s history and for me it is a privilege to be able to work in a field that continuously provides stimulation to better understand the country’s past and influences that have left a mark on a greater western world. I absolutely love combining the tours I lead to incorporate both the historical content alongside the culture aspects of different time periods; whether this is site specific to touring within the elegant surrounds of a Renaissance palace or travelling further back in time to experience a day in the life of Pompeii.

I find the variation of the history is what makes my job so interesting and exciting. There is no end to the depth of Italy’s wonders and I am always appreciative of being able to pass on my knowledge to other travellers wanting to unlock the country’s secrets. As I first walked the city of Rome, the city walked little tracks all over my heart and has forever since left me with a sense of awe.

Super Super Tour Massimo led a tour of the Colosseum, the Palatine Hill and Forum. This tour was the highlight of our stay in Rome. When we return we will take more tours with Massimo. He puts the long and complicated history of Rome in context and makes it interesting. Above all he is warm and caring.

Massimo is the Greatest Storyteller My family and I spent few memorable days in Rome and truly enjoyed the enchanting stories about the Roman Emperors, the Colosseum and the history of Rome told by Massimo with "Storytelling Rome Tours & Walks" The history and the stories that Massimo told us we will always remember and talk about for the days to come. Even our 12-year-old twins, who in a regular day are attached to the social media and their phones were captivated by Massimo and are still talking about the greatest Emperors of Rome. Massimo's stories will make us definitely return to Rome for more.

Scarlet ladies Rome, amazing experience! This was simply a phenomenal tour, one of the best we have ever done! The stories were incredibly well researched and very interesting indeed! It gave a superb insight into the social history of Rome in the centuries around the Renaissance. Massimo is a gifted and engaging storyteller and also incredibly knowledgeable.

Vatican museums as you have never seen them Tour of the Vatican museums for a friend's birthday. Interesting, captivating, curious. I am wary of audio guides that are flat and monotonous in their explanations. With this tour we discovered gems that no audio guide tells you about. Then the modality, Massimo's stories that overwhelm you and excite you and are at times very friendly! There is so much care in telling and explaining. I recommend it to anyone who might think a visit to the museum is boring.

Touring Rome With A Great Guide I have been to Rome 4 times with friends and we mostly toured on our own. Once we had a guide for the Coliseum and the Vatican but they were crowded and not very interesting. A friend told me about Massimo and his story telling tours. We had 6 family members in our group and his tours were the highlight of our trip. He made it so very interesting with his stories and facts about the places we visited. I learned things I had never heard before. We never felt bored with just getting facts, but enjoyed the story format of the tour. He also went over and above his job as tour guide and made dinner reservations for us and gave us many helpful hints about taxis and times to go places when it wouldn't be so crowded. I'm going back in July with grandkids and can't wait to hire him again. He is like a family friend to me now.
