With 10 years guiding experience under my belt, I will take you off the beaten path and bring ancient Roman society to life, telling the stories behind the art and architecture. Showing you the masterpieces that you absolutely have to see before you leave Rome.
We will visit the Capuchin Crypts. Six Crypts decorated with the Bones of almost 4000 monks. Altars and symbols of Christianity made from human remains . Learn the intricacies of religious burial rights as we try to grasp that universal question.
Next we are off the to the Basilica of S. Clemente - a 12th century Basilica built on top of a 4th century Basilica, built on top of a 2nd century Temple of Mythros, On top of a 1st century Roman Apartment block.

I am an American living in Rome, Italy since 2003. Married to an Italian, I Graduated from The American University of Rome. Working as a tour guide in and around Rome. I have a passion for history, travel and Italian Cuisine. Laughter is the key ingredient to a fulfilling life and humor is big part of what I bring to every experience. Master storyteller, my tours tend to be humorous bordering on Blasphemous. I focus on the stories behind the art, artist, architecture and Archaeology. Lets face it, nobody remembers all the the names and dates. They remember the Stories.

Divan (filling in for Michael) was a great host/guide. He has deep knowledge of the Capuchin crypt, San Clement church, and overall history of Rome. He has incredible enthusiasm for the locations and clearly and concisely describes them. Divan always provided great answers for all of my questions, regardless of the century I was asking about. I would choose another tour by Divan without hesitation.

Tour was amazing! Definitely we saw hidden Rome. This is our second visit to Rome so this tour was a gem, can't believe that we hadn't read anything about the places we visited. Michael was not available so Divan did our tour. Divan was great, very knowledgeable, great stories that provided perfect historical perspective. Highly recommend!!!

Michael's kid got sick but he had Andy as a replacement. Andy also fulfilled the promise of delivering an interesting tour with great humour. Here my favourite joke of the tour: Me: So was that a fountain with drinking water? A: Yes me: Oh that was so nice of that rich Berbirini guy to provide people with drinkable water! A: haha, that was a good one! This fountain was in his private backyard back then. As if he would care about the poor people! you're funny! *pats me on the shoulder* I am glad to have you on the tour, we will have a lot of fun together!
