Clients will meet with their tour guide by the Colosseum and will be told the stories and anecdotes related to the immense and massive Arena, which incidently was the largest one of the world back in its day.

Then after this spectacle, together we jump onto the subway metro line to reach the marvelous National Museum Palazzo Massimo, a true hidden gem for the History of Rome.
Put Your Trust In Us.

If learning about ancient Rome’s society is what you are looking to do, then this is tour is the best option.
Characters like Emperor Augustus and his wife Livia will welcome you into their dining room, the so called ”Paradise” where they enjoyed their meals and parties together with their guests.
Admire the frescoed walls of the aristocrats, homes of outstanding quality that are over two millennia old. However, the colors are still so incredibly bright and vivid, to the point that it seems as if they were painted a few days ago.
Furthermore, you will be in complete awestruck when looking at the bronze remains of Caligula’s floating naval palace… Yes! You have read it correctly, this emperor dared to create a naval floating palace.
BUT If you don’t believe it, then you absolutely must take a visit with us and find out yourself.

The Romans have opened their doors for you, now take a deep breath and step inside

    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.

    Incredible experience Discovering Rome through story telling was an experience of mine. The narration is excellent and the level of attention is always high thanks to a careful and very knowledgeable guide. Absolutely recommended
    Third tour!!! I'm on my third tour with Massimo! And this time I chose it to give a gift to my friends! They all got out Enthusiastic and enchanted. Because Massimo not only tells you about ancient Rome... he drags you into it with irony and culture. Highly recommended!!!

    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.
