Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lucky to have Massimo!!!! We reserved a deluxe family Vatican Tour w/our guide Massimo! We were a party of 5 adults, 2 small children, 1 stroller! Massimo was very professional, giving us all the insights on what to look for, and included bathroom/snack breaks and even suggested spots for lunch after the tour. We had a 4.5 hour journey into the Vatican that included all the best-known statues, galleries of the Vatican Museum, the Raphael Rooms, and the Sistine Chapel too. On the tour, we he included a 15/20 minute break in a snack bar in Piazza Risorgimento. Afterward, we walked towards Piazza San Pietro and visited St Peter's Basilica. We felt very cared for, I would highly recommend any of my family or friends to experience the best Tour Guide in Rome!

Thank you!!!!

We've toured with Massimo before (scarlet Ladies and Emperors) so when we heard he had new tour, we jumped at the chance to take it. The Palazzo Massimo is a museum in Rome that is dedicated solely to Ancient Roman art. There you will find treasures such as "the Boxer" and the only mummy child in all of Rome, as well as fresco's removed from Julia's home. (if you don't know who that is, she's pretty important in Ancient Rome) Massimo (guide) pieces together the museum so you understand the relationships between the people you are looking at My husband and I toured this museum on our own years ago, but with a fresh set of "Massimo' eyes, it really makes so much more sense. Take this tour! The museum is beautiful.

I am from Rome so I don’t generally go on tours in my city but the title of this one made my husband curious. It was AMAZING! Massimo is deeply knowledgeable and shares massive amounts of information keeping the atmosphere light and fun. We had a great time, learned many new things about places I always walk through and had no idea about, laughed a lot, and enjoyed drinks in the center of Rome hanging out with its ghosts. We have already scheduled another one!

We loved Massimo’s tours. We had him for an afternoon tour of the Roman Forum and Colosseum, than joined him for this evening walking your about the Roman Emperors. Massimo has a talent for making Roman history come alive, reframing things in a way that was very accessible for my 15 year-old daughter. He is also very knowledgeable when you take him off the script, with well thought out answers to our many questions.

We never know what to truly expect when booking tours anywhere wether stateside or in Europe. Fortunately, we were BLESSED to have our tour of The Coliseum booked with Massimo! From beginning to end he was so informative, hilarious, kept our attention (8 of us) and lived up to everything we were told about him from a friend. Do yourself a favor and please book with him as you will not regret it! He is a blessing to the Italian Touring Community because he truly teaches so much history! Four hours wasn’t long enough! Until next time Massimo!!!! Keep doing such an amazing job!!!

My sister and a friend had recommended we did a tour with Massimo. We had one night in Rome and we did the ‘Julius Caesar & The Emperors’ Nighttime Stories Tour’. I must say if felt quite magical to have our own tour guide for 3 hours on a Saturday night in Rome and Massimo kept us and our 2 boys, aged 7 and 8, completely engaged and entertained for the whole duration of the tour. He is funny, quick and so knowledgeable about the history of this beloved city all wrapped up in 6 vivid historical tales of the key folks who built and brought down this fascinating city. We are hooked. Next time to go to Rome we won’t fail to include a tour with Massimo. Thank you so much!

Superb! Massimo gets a little twinkle in his eye as he starts each juicy story and he clearly enjoys telling stories as much as I enjoyed listening to them!! Massimo is a natural communicator, he totally brought the history of the places we visited to life and balanced this with relevant and easy to understand facts. He clearly knows his stuff and worked to make it enjoyable and accessible. I can highly recommend and will take more of his tours next time I am in Rome.

We had the pleasure of being introduced to Massimo through a friend and had three separate days of tours with him during our time in Rome. He was exceptional throughout. His knowledge was vast but also his delivery of information and the way the days were planned were always fun and exciting. He was always on time, very fun to converse with, and also very patient with us all making pit stops in the shade and for water during the hot time we spent in Rome.

Massimo is a natural entertainer and storyteller, who hypnotised us with the incredibly fun Roman Emperors storytelling tour he created. We loved it from start to finish.

The way Massimo tells these juicy, touching or scary stories about the Roman Emperors truly transports you back into Roman time. You will find yourself rooting for the underdog or cheering on the independent women of that time, as if it's all happening right now. Wish we could go back to Rome and do all of Massimo's tours. Do not miss this.

Hands down the most entertaining and interactive tour we've ever had.

PS: Massimo, please make a podcast - so we can listen to your stories every day.

We booked these tours with Massimo on the recommendation of our niece. We were not disappointed as he kept us fully entertained and engaged. We are a 3 generation family with an age range of 17 to 75 and Massimo made sure that we were all comfortable, gave us lots of information, lots of stories and fun facts as well.

Also, booking and communication was great, reminding us about dress code, where to meet each day etc

We will certainly recommend Massimo to anyone who is going to Rome.
