This tour went above my expectations. Our guide, Federico, was amazing in both the quality of the information he was sharing and also the energy he brought to the tour. This isn’t a tour that every person coming to Rome typically does like the coliseum, Vatican, etc. However, that is a shame as the sites visited in this tour are just as memorable and in some ways more interesting. If you are looking for something unique, and are interested in history, then I can’t recommend this tour enough. I will be looking into what other tours Federico’s company, TakeWalks, does in Italy!

Excellent walk with good information both historically and about the ghost stories, and the guide was amazing at keeping everyone engaged. I would highly recommend it!

We found ourselves in a sweet spot for the start and from there it was just great stories as we hit the streets and stories I had no idea about! I loved !!

Our guide was very good at explaining the history of tour destinations and our driver was very good at navigating the streets of Roma.

Rob from City Wonders was just sensational....funny, entertaining, exciting, informative, personable, great English, just a cool tour
