We had a day and a half in Rome. We took in the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps on our own on our first evening. Ximena took us (two parents, two kids 11&13) on a whirlwind tour of Rome on our final full day...More
We contracted Ms Amarales to give us a tour of ancient Rome, baroque Rome and the Vatican. Almost two full days. Her passion for history and her passion for Rome made everything so amazing. She also made arrangements for pick-up at the airport to our...More
I emailed Ximena about a month before our trip asking for a tailor made tour of the Julio Claudian dynasty. She answered my questions promptly and came up with a great itinerary which included entrance to Emperor Augustus and his wife Livia’s houses. I know...More

Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills.
