My wifeBrenda and I spent 2 day’s touring with Marisa on Rome . She was extremely informative regarding the History and Culture of Rome . Marisa is a wonderful person who guided us through Rome and it’s numerous ancient history. She was personable and friendly towards 2 visitors from an extremely different culture . She communicated with us in our native language which was extremely helpful ! Brenda and I highly recommend Marisa as a Rome Guide . Bravo Marisa ! 5 stars ⭐️

We were delighted to have Marisa be our guide again for our second trip to Rome. We were with Marisa for 2 days-one for the Colosseum and one for the Vatican. Marisa is so knowledgeable, warm and passionate about her work and it really makes the tour. I cannot imagine going through the huge Vatican exhibits and Colosseum without a guide. We would have Marisa as our guide again and are highly recommending her to family and friends.

We just spent a packed four days with Marisa touring the sites of Ancient Rome as part of my Bucket List trip. She is remarkable and her experience as an historian and archaeologist totally shined through. By using diagrams on her iPad and in her notebook, we were able to see the Forum, Palatine Hill and so many other sites come alive. She is personable and patient, even when I kept stopping to photograph every sign and climb every staircase to get a better view 🙂 I couldn't imagine having a better guide for this absolutely incredible experience. Thank you, Marisa!

Marisa Ficorella knows the Vatican intimately. She has Vatican certification & years of experience. It would have been impossible for us (2) to navigate the vast area and the crowds. Marisa showed us all the highlights but also gave us a historical perspective of the Vatican as a whole. Marisa knows about all the treasures and all the fascinating details that only a guide with her knowledge can share. It was the best possible way to experience Vatican City

As we had only one day in Rome and wanted more than to just "see" the Forum and Colosseum we booked the "Imperial Rome-Full Day Tour" with Marisa. We found that Marisa is much more than a professional tour guide and a specialist in Roman Archaeology. Marisa is a passionate and all knowledgeable native of Rome. I could go on at length detailing the ancient historical history she shared but just as interesting were her insights on the impacts of ancient Roman customs and culture on modern Rome.

We loved our tour with Marisa in Rome. Our private tour for 4 tour included Colosseum, Palatine Hill, and Roman Forum. Marisa is very knowledgeable about each location's history, architecture, art, and more. We liked the fact that she had some images to show us that helped explain points she was making about the past. We would 100% book Marisa again if we manage to make it back to Rome!

Marisa did a superb job. She was on time and ready to get started even throughout the rain. She was very knowledgeable, personable and funny. We enjoyed her tour very much. She was very flexible with her schedule and always answered all of our questions with enthusiasm. She treated us like family and made us feel welcome in her hometown of Rome. She is an excellent tour guide and we recommend her highly!


Marisa is a fabulous guide, and her extensive knowledge brought the ancient sites of Rome alive for me. She was extremely accommodating and went the extra mile to make sure I had what I needed. Rome would not have been as meaningful if I had visited the sites without Marisa, and I highly recommend her to anyone who cares about the history of this important city.

Amazing insight into the ancient Roman Forum as well as the Colosseum. It was wonderful to have an archaeologist give her in depth knowledge of both of these must-see Roman wonders. Wonderful tour.

Marisa took my family and me to the Palatine Hill and the Forum. It exceeded my expectations -- she went out of her way to make sure we got to see Augustus's house, and throughout, her enthusiasm, deep knowledge, and ability to make historical connections was, well, spell-binding. Three hours flew. Even my husband (who does not usually like guided tours) and my grown-up son (jet-lagged and recovering from the flu) raved about it for the rest of the day, and expressed interest in another tour with Marisa.
