When traveling, I like to treat myself with one or two small-group tours. Our favorite Italy tours are those from our friends at The Roman Guy. They offer small groups, which are perfect for travelers like us. I like the intimate feeling of a limited party. The size is big enough that we get to meet new people (a huge bonus for us when traveling), but small enough that we can easily interact with our guide and maneuver around sites, restaurants, etc. without taking up too much space. The guides are always fantastic. I find The Roman Guy guides to be fun and informative. They share great facts and tips in an accessible manner. Every guide I’ve had has made me feel included and free to ask any question that popped to mind.
As if great guides and small groups weren’t enough, the tours always include a bonus—something that makes you feel special. Whether it’s skip-the-line access, entry into a restricted area, or simply photos in a phenomenally picturesque area, I always feel that The Roman Guy tours provide an exceptional experience.
Given the great times we have always had with The Roman Guy, I’m exited to present their new Italy tours for 2019. And remember, if you book a tour with them, use our code ROAMING, to save money on most of their small-group tours.
Florence Highlights Tour with Michelangelo’s David & Duomo (Take a short tour of the artistic and architectural highlights that Florence has to offer, including visiting the city’s main cathedral, il Duomo, and skip-the-line access to Michelangelo’s “David.”)
Tuscan Countryside Outing with Chianti Wine Tasting & San Gimignano (I really would like to go on this one; it looks fabulous! They whisk you away via luxury vehicle to San Gimignano—a medieval hill-top town and then on to the Chianti region for lunch and wine tasting. Sounds like “la dolce vita” at its finest.)
Delicious Florence Evening Food Tour (This food tour isn’t new, but looks like it will taste spectacular! They take you all over Florence sampling the delectable dishes the city is known for.)
Super Early Vatican Gold Tour with Sistine Chapel (This tour allows you can get in at 7:30 am, before other tour companies and regular ticket holders. I’ve been on a Roman Guy Vatican tour and the time with very few people in the Sistine Chapel was a memory I hold dear.)
Super Early Private Vatican Platinum Tour with Sistine Chapel (This tour allows early access and skip-the-line service like the Gold tour, but is private so you can customize your group tour.)
Rome in a Day Tour including Colosseum & Vatican Museums (See Rome from ancient times through the Baroque area by visiting the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, the Vatican Museums, and much more. The tour includes skip-the-line access where needed.)
Day Trip from Rome: Lost City of Ancient Pompeii and Stunning Sorrento (The Roman Guy will transport you to Pompeii where you will learn about the site from an expert archaeologist. When you’re finished, you’ll zip off to the Amalfi Coast and visit the beautiful city of Sorrento and see its stunning views. You’ll be able to sit back and relax as The Roman Guy takes you back to Rome.)
Day Trip from Rome: Florence in a Day (Take a day tour of the artistic and architectural highlights that Florence has to offer, including Michelangelo’s “David” and the city’s main cathedral. The trip includes round-trip train tickets and skip-the-line access to see “David.”)
Venice Highlights Tour with Gondola Ride (A wonderful chance to zip around Venice seeing the highlights, including St. Mark’s Basilica, the Rialto Bridge, and hidden gems, and then glide along in style in a gondola. We took a Venice tour with The Roman Guy and it was an amazing experience!)
There are many other fabulous Roman Guy tours in each of these cities; this list just highlights some of the new offerings for 2019. If you would like to read about our adventures with them, visit our page Roman Guy Tours.
Although I find The Roman Guy tours reasonably-priced, you can save more money on many of them by using our code ROAMING. Just insert the code ROAMING when booking to save 5% on most of their small-group tours.
I hope you get a chance to experience these fabulous excursions for yourself. And wherever you may roam, I hope you have a happy journey! Amy
