Marisa Ficorella, Archaeologist and Qualified Guide

Museums - Rome and Vatican

Discover the Great Beauty (la Grande Bellezza) of Rome with a local guide. 

I'll escort you through archaeological museums of Rome, as the Capitoline Museums or Palazzo Massimo, a section of the National Museum of Archaeology. We can enjoy together the amazing collection of the Borghese Family, where we'll admire the masterpieces of Caravaggio and Bernini.

I'll help you to absorbe the best from the Vatican Museums, going beyond the Sistine Chapel.

I provide 4 different itineraries for the Vatican from the basic path (Sistine Chapel and Basilica of St.Peter) to the special tour by night.

I'll be happy to suggest the best tour for your family...and the best timing to avoid crowds :)
