Hi, I'm Paola Barbanera, a professional and licensed tourist guide for Rome and the Vatican.
My pleasure as a professional tour guide is to help you and your family experience as much of all this as possible within the time available to you: I will be happy to suggest you what you can see in Rome and be your personal tourist guide for Rome and the Vatican.
I went to a specialist school for art history and archeology, then graduated university with honours in Science Tourism. I was a professional licensed tour leader for ten years (leading groups to Africa, America, Europe and Asia)
Then did further study to become a professional licensed tour guide in 1999 for Rome and Vatican city.
I have been sharing my love of Rome ever since. Whereas my technical specialty is in the art and history of Rome (in particular the Vatican and ancient Rome), my real passion is helping you love this place the way I do.
You can choose either my available tour in Rome, Vatican City and nearby location such as Villa Adriana and Villa d'Este in Tivoli, or the ancient city of Ostia, or have your custom guided tour designed on your needs and available time.
Single travellers, couples, groups and families with children are welcome!
