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.

    We loved this ancient church founded over 1,000 years ago, with beautiful Reniassance additions from the Borghese and Barbarioni patron. The mosaics, early font and doorway, and then the side chapel with the Domenichino frescoes not to mention the grotto dating back to the earliest centuries of the Christain era, all these made for a wonderfully peacful and enjoyable church art/architecture experience.

    This place is truly a hidden gem. The tour was fascinating, the guide very knowledgeable and passionate. We spent about 2 hours underground in a network of 3rd and 4th century tunnels with intact tombs with very interesting history, engravings, and art. This one is different from many others in the area because it wasn't looted. Very cool!

    This museum is set inside the Abbey of St. Nilo. It is not always open, but when it is, it is a treasure trove of antiquity. Greco-Roman statuary and funerary items were found buried under the church dating back to 300 BC. The museum is well curated and offers interesting insights. It also includes frescos salvaged during reconstructions, as well as a beautiful example of Grotesque ceiling art . If you find this museo open when you visit the Abbey, it is well worth the 3 euro entry. Upstairs, the museum contains the oldest book in Europe, along with ancient manuscripts collected by the Byzantine Monks.

    Baobab is a holistic beauty and massage salon that puts you immmediately at ease given the professionality and genuinity of the owner whose qualification is apparent. The service is relaxing and unrushed. There are a wide range of treatments on offer including laser hair removal and the pricing is competitive. Highly recommended.

    Andrea was very helpful. He collected us at the airport and proceeded to show us a great tour around the city, making sure to show us both famous sights and his less known personal favorites. He also prepared the guide tour with our future plans in mind. Highly recommended to start of your Rome journey with a guided tour with him!

    My family of 8 (6 adults and 2 children) booked with Andrea 3 times for our 2 week European vacation and I couldn't recommend his services more to anyone that needs an airport, cruise port, or general transfer around Rome.

    Our first experience was with Emiliano for our pre-cruise Tour of Rome and port transfer for our cruise out of Citavecchia- he was absolutely PHENOMENAL! Emiliano picked us up early from our hotel at the airport, his vehicle was spacious and immaculately clean and comfortable. He took us all around Rome so that we could see a little bit of everything-Trevi fountain, Spanish steps, Pantheon and MORE! He encouraged us to take our time and explore as much as we wanted-he even took us to a restaurant owned by a friend of his, for lunch where the service was fantastic and the food was even better. He then got us to the cruise port in plenty of time to board our cruise-I would rebook with him OVER AND OVER again! My mom and sister who are extremely picky with service just RAVED about Emiliano-we will be booking him the next time we are in Rome!

    Our second experience with was Andrea himself, he picked us up from the cruise port in Citavecchia and transferred us back to the airport to catch our flight to Greece. The vehicle was clean and comfortable and Andrea was VERY communicative throughout the entire process, arrived at the cruise port early to retrieve us and was so kind during our transfer. He was even willing to set up our third transfer experience when we returned to Rome to go to the Vatican.

    If you're looking for a private transfer that is clean, comfortable and flexible -Andrea is your man! I could not recommend him any higher.
