About Marta

Hello and thank you for visiting my website!
My name is Marta and I am a licensed Tour Guide of Rome. I hold a MD in Foreign Languages and Literatures and I have completed testing and coursework toward a BA in Art History.

When I first moved to the Eternal City 15 years ago from a small town nearby, I felt very lucky and started touring this city, site by site, dedicating each day to a new exciting venue. The thing I like most about Rome is the fact that this discovery and journey in time can be almost endless due to the huge amount of artistic and archeological treasures; even a simple stroll at dusk through the familiar cobbled streets of the city center can potentially hide something new to me, a new view, a new romantic side.

Well, very soon I found myself in love with this city and decided to become a professional tour guide in 2009. In Italy a tour guide is a professional licensed under Italian law; this requires specific training and studies in order to pass an oral and written exam about the art, architecture, history and culture of Rome.

Rome is without doubt one of the most beautiful cities in the world, but sometimes a trip to the eternal city can be a little overwhelming, especially for first time visitors. I will make it easier for you to explore the sites and enjoy the places while giving you some practical advice and explaining you some of the contradictions and secrets of this beautiful place. Let me just share with you my passion for Rome, its traditions, art and architecture through the places we will visit. Get a look at my tours, and if you don’t find what you are looking for, don’t hesitate to contact me and ask!

I try to give all the tours in person, but when I am not available, I work with some trusted colleagues who can guarantee a fantastic experience.
