Hello :) I'm Selene and in my energetic and positive Team we are all Archaeologist specialized in Ancient Rome and official Tour Guides.

Romans since generations, we have studied in this amazing city, doing many archaeological excavations in the area that we will discover togheter, so we will give you many information that you can't find on guides ;)

We have created this unique and charming experience to immerse you in a city of 2000 years ago, pointing out the traces of the daily life of the past that are still visible all over around, but that only an "Archeological Eye " can read !

It will be fun, engaging and informative :D...

Where you'll be

Where we'll meet
An amazing secret Belvedere view point
Roma
Like real Archaeologists we will explore the Colosseum, and skip the lines over at the Roman Forum and head inside for a full tour of Ancient Rome's bustling civic center and the Palatine Hill.
We will literally walk in the footsteps of men like Julius Caesar (the roads contain their original paving stones) and we will end on an amazing rooftop for memorable pictures.

    It was an amazing tour. Flavia was an excellent guide. Incredibly knowledge and made everything super interesting and relevant. She was great at giving the context for everything we saw. Definitely will do this again with her when we return to Rome with other family members!

    We had a wonderful experience. Our host, Flavia, was amazing. There was not a question she could not answer. It was so nice to walk through the Colosseum and Forum and learn all about the history. We would not change a thing about the experience. Getting to the meet up point early is key as it was a bit hard to find but it offered a great view we would not have seen otherwise. Highly recommend this tour. My 20 year old daughter enjoyed it too!

    Professionalità e passione, questo viene trasmesso durante il Tour. Più di tre ore, impegnative per la ricchezza dei luoghi visitati, spese bene.

    Spending a day with Selene is like spending a day with a very smart & fun friend, who tells you everything she knows about archaeology. Selene’s passion for archaeology is infectious and she was able to connect not only with the adults but also with my two kids, aged 8 & 11, who were frankly a bit tired of being dragged around Rome by Mom and Dad, but had an exceptional time at the colosseum because of Selene. She really made our experience fantastic, pointing out details we would have otherwise missed and helping us navigate crowds and lines that would have been overwhelming without her. It was worth every penny to work with her and next time we come to Rome, I will reach out in advance and just let her plan our whole trip. On my own, I’m a bumbling tourist but with Selene, I am a student of history.

    This could be interesting for an archaeologist or historian. For us on our tight holiday timelines, we would prefer to focus on seeing more sights and highlights in front of us instead of going so deep on the history of somewhat-related structures.

    Our tour of The Colliseum and The Forum was amazing! Our guide was very knowledgeable and made the experience great. There were so many neat pieces of history to see, that we went back a few days later to The Forum to explore more. Fantastic experience and would do it again!
