What an awesome treat


My boyfriend and I decided to do something completely crazy: take 3 months off from work and backpack through Europe. We went through England, France, Germany, Switzerland and finally Italy. Our budget was limited, but we also figured that being our last period of time so far away from Australia and in such a beautiful place like Italy, we were going to go all out. It is a once in a lifetime thing. So we booked a few tours with LivItaly. My boyfriend is a ferrari aficionado and coming down from Switzerland (by the way the Alps are BEAUTIFUL!!!) and stopping briefly in Milan (which wasn't...Read more

LivItaly- BEST way to see the Vatican Museums



We toured the Vatican Museums with Sergio from LivItaly Tours. I am so happy that we chose this tour! Sergio was the most knowledgeable person I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He knows everything there is to know about anything Vatican/Renaissance related. We received early admission into the Sistine Chapel and boy was it worth it! It is unbelievable. With the tour, you head straight to the Sistine Chapel and then loop around the museum, exiting through the Sistine Chapel before heading into St Peter's Bacillica. The amount of people in the Sistine Chapel when we looped...Read more

Best Tours Ever !!


We booked after we arrived in Rome with four persons so I was expecting that we had waited too late However Angelo scrambled yet succeeded in getting us excellent tour guides for both the Colleseum and the Vatican Sistine Chapel. 
Our first guide was Barbara and she was so kind and knowledgeable. Your are encouraged to ask questions and make the tour your own. 
Our Vatican tour guide, Sergio was the most detailed and knowledgeable guide. There was no question he could not answer and his passion made the whole experience truly magical. 
Thank to everyone who so.graciously...Read more


Early Morning private tour of the Sistine Chapel and Vatican


We were visiting Rome to celebrate a friend's milestone birthday, and booked an early morning private tour of the Sistine Chapel and Vatican. Despite the very early start (we were picked up from our hotel at 7am), it was definitely worth it. The guide met us at the appointed meeting point (although you have to look around, as several tour groups gather in the same area), and took us across the road to join the queue to the Vatican Museum (for which we were right near the front, because of the early start). The guide started the tour there and then by giving us some background information...Read more


A wonderful, stress-free visit to the Vatican Museums


At the beginning of May, my daughter and I had the good fortune to experience the Livitaly private Vatican Early Entrance tour. We opted for their pick up service from our hotel and were promptly met in the lobby at 7.15 a.m. On arrival at the Vatican museums we were greeted by Kristin who introduced us to Alex, our tour guide.

I cannot praise Alex highly enough. Her knowledge about art and the Vatican was immense. She was friendly, considerate at all times and extremely patient with my photo snapping daughter!!

Entering the museums at 8 a.m., we were swiftly guided towards...Read more

Over the top TLC!


I booked 2 tours with Livitaly, and they MORE than exceeded my expectations! I wanted small, being on my own this day, so when I met Pamen for the early am Vatican tour, was SO impressed that even though I was the only one signed up, they honored that, and gave me the most amazing tour. Pamen was knowledgeable, understandable, and knows her art, history & the Vatican inside and out! She gave me a quick prep class, and we were among the first into the Sistine chapel. We were able to move quickly through increasing crowds, and she knows the guards, even finding a few shortcuts. I learned...Read more

A must!


My husband and I booked the Early Entrance tour of the Vatican and St. Peter's with Livitaly, and we were so glad we did!! It was just the 2 of us with our guide, and the early entrance meant we were in the Sistine Chapel with only about 25 people -- quite a different experience than a previous one, years ago, when we were in a shoulder-to-shoulder crowd!! 

Our guide, Pamen, was extremely knowledgeable, passionate about art history, and patient with all our questions -- she pointed out so many things we definitely would have missed on our own, which made the whole experience much...Read more

Experience Rome with all your senses


We were on a very short family vacation (with two teens) in Rome and wanted to experience Rome as much as we could, so we contacted LivItaly and found Angelo to be extremely responsive and helpful.
We ended up doing 4(!!!) tours with LivItaly and got a unique experience to match the different expectations of everyone in our family.
We had an early morning running tour with Kristen who shared with us her enthusiasm and passion of Rome, full with Anecdotes, history and useful recommendations. My 15 years old son who ran with us for the first time said it was the best Rome...Read more

A highlight of our trip


We recently visited Rome and booked the two days all-inclusive bundle with Livitaly. The two days were definitely the highlight of our week! There were so many things that made the experience great! Kristin provided excellent customer service throughout the planning and booking - answering all of my questions quickly, thoroughly, and professionally. We were extremely impressed when she met us the afternoon of our first day to introduce herself and make sure we were satisfied with our tour. We were so fortunate to have Valentina as our guide. Her knowledge was absolutely amazing. She knows...Read more

Touring Ancient Rome and the Vatican


My two daughters (aged 23 and 19), my husband and I toured with John Penate. He was extremely knowledgeable and kept things interesting. We learned a great deal. I would not hesitate to hire John again. He was also very helpful with my daughter's gluten allergy and was able to direct us to restaurants that understood.Read more


Rome from soup to nuts!


As an experienced traveler, I had been on many tours which were less than captivating. But as a history/geography teacher, I wanted to provide the best possible experience for my family in Rome; our group included three adults and three teenagers. We booked two tours with Livitaly, each which fitted our needs perfectly: one of the Colosseum and Roman Forum and the second to include the Vatican, the Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums. We had fabulous leadership with John on the ancient Rome segment and Luca on the Vatican tour. They were superbly prepared, thorough, and constantly...Read more

Five Tours, All Outstanding


We took a total of five tours with Livitaly during our vacation in Italy. The tours and guides were: Vatican and Sistine Chapel (Daniela), Colosseum and Ancient Rome (Rachel), Florence Walking Tour (Raffaela), Uffizi Gallery (Rafaella), and Doge's Palace/Saint Mark's (Francesca). All of these tours were excellent.

We were met promptly at the scheduled time (or sooner). Our guides were all highly educated with advanced academic degrees in the subjects they guided us on. PhDs and Masters degrees in art, art history, archaelogy; that's hard to top. The tours were all as advertised. We...Read more

Seamless Hotel Transport


Our LivItaly airport transport was seamless. There was serious weather and our driver waited for us and our niece, who arrived an hour late. It is always so exhausting to arrive late on an international flight, but all was made well. Our driver was easy to recognize and we were happy that we waited for our niece's late flight. Seamless transport from airport to hotel. I highly recommend as we were carrying a lot of baggage. Thank you, LivItaly, for making us feel so welcome to Rome! - NanRead more

Vatican Early Morning Tour with Valentina


We also opted for pick up from our Rome apartment. We came out about 5-10 mins prior to our scheduled pick up time and they were already there waiting for us. We first met out guide Ms. Valentina in front of the Vatican city entrance. It was a cold december morning. After a brief chat and introductions over a cup of hot coffee we entered Vatican. Within the next few minutes Ms. Valentina transformed herself from a guide to a close friend. Her knowledge of the place was astounding. Both my sons are very keen students of Latin and they could connect with her. She knew the answers to all...Read more

LivItaly - Tour of the Vatican and Ancient Rome


Now that we have return from the Eternal City, I wanted to share what a wonderful experience we had using Livitaly as our guide through the Vatican/Sistine Chapel and Ancient Rome. Alexandra made the experience so much more rich and textured. Her knowledge of the subject matter is vast. I can assure you we had many questions for each of which she had a ready answer. She was kind, patient and indefatigable—not to mention pretty. It was terrific having her as a guide for two days as we were so comfortable with her after the Vatican Tour. While the weather was not optimal for our ancient Rome...Read more

Angelo's passion for Rome is contagious


My friend and I took a tour with Angelo, The Vatican Museum and then a separate viewing in St Peters, as part of a small semi-private tour. Angelo's hospitality and English language skill made communication, understanding and asking of questions easy. He was able to understand context of our questions, listen to us and then, his knowledge and passion for the art, history, symbolism and the entertaining and knowledgable stories enabled me to absorb more information and enjoy learning about the Vatican. This ability to communicate with different cultures and comprehension of context was a...Read more

The ONLY way to see The Vatican and Italy!


I did a lot of research before I chose LivItaly Tours for our trip to Italy. We had only 2 days and I wanted a comprehensive overview-we chose the Evening Walking tour of Rome and the Vatican Tour. Luca was our guide for both tours-we felt like we were with a movie star! He loves his city, he knows Everyone!!-even the Nuns in the Vatican gift shop love him. We saw the highlights of Rome, gained a deeper understanding of the history and art we saw, and even came home with a couple great pictures of my husband and me that Luca took for us. (a free photographer for the price of the tour)!...Read more


Great Tour Company


First off the booking online and communication from Livitaly was fast and all questions were answered. We booked two tours the early entrance Vatican and the Colosseum tours. We were met promptly at both our designated areas for the tours. Livitaly has a great policy of no more than 6 people in a group,they also include admission price in the tour cost, and I can not tell you how much more of a personal expierence can be catered to what you are seeing and being able to ask questions in a small group.
The early entrance Vatican tour is a must. Luca our guide met us and after...Read more

Highly recommeneded


Took the tour of the Vatican. Had added a car to pick us up from the hotel. The driver showed up earlier but had no issue coming back on allocated time expect he did not. After waiting 30 plus minutes he showed up on foot. Apparently the police pulled him over for some reason and he could not come back but asked the police to let him run up and give us the message and to ask our hotel to get us a cab. Which they did. We got to our meeting point which our contact Kristin together with our guide Luca were waiting for us. They were so apologetic and paid for the taxi (and even refunded our...Read more

Simply the best


OK, finally found a moment to give credit to the outstanding team at LivItaly Tours. Angelo was a tremendous resource before we even stepped foot in Rome. His attention to detail, suggestions for restaurants and quick responses to date changes was awesome. He made the entire trip easier.
Now lets take a moment to talk about my main man John. We had him for two tours, Ancient Rome and the Ghost Tour. Both were fantastic. We had my 5 and 8 year olds with us and John was the perfect story teller. He kept things interesting and for the Ghost stories was just spooky enough to keep my...Read more

Great Experience


I truly enjoyed all aspects of our experience with LivItaly. I do not like large tours so I had focused on LivItaly and one other company when planning our trip to Rome. Each limited the semi-private tours to 6 people, but LivItaly guaranteed to run them even with a smaller number.

Before deciding, I was very pleased by the prompt response of Angelo to all my questions - literally by return email within a half hour (a response rate not matched by the other companies I was considering). Plus it was a response from a human being, not an automated "we will contact you within twenty-...Read more

A delightful Tour of the Vatican


We toured the Vatican museum and the Sistine Chapel with Livitaly. Our guide was Valentina Caroli and she was amazing. She was knowledgeable, patient, enthusiastic, and had tons of great stories to tell us. I felt like I was being given a tour by my loving aunt who lives in Rome; that is how delightful it was (That's also why I felt compelled to give her an American hug and a 20 euro tip!). My spouse and I were the only members of the tour, which really made it unique, because she tailored the tour to our tastes. I loved the way she described some of the paintings, explained what to look...Read more


LivItaly was like Family


I had heard about this company through some friends, here back in Stockholm, who had taken their tours in the past. I was skeptical, I must say. I love last-minute traveling, wirld-wind type of thing. Ryanair, get there, grab a hotel room and just walk and take pictures, drink coffee and wine and I would have been done. But my friends insisted I'd look into it. I found their Vatican semi-Private tour. Seemed about right: if I have to take a tour, might as well do it in a place where I need help. I heard the Vat is daunting and sometimes scary and crowded. I booked it. 89 Euros...not cheap...Read more

If you only have a day - amazing experience


The entire experience was amazing.....which included the on-line inquiry and reservation. There are so many choices out there but the field was narrowed very early on in the process as Livitaly (specifically Kristin) was extremely professional, prompt and patient when answering all my questions during the discovery and booking stages of my trip. I can assure you the balance of the tour experience was every bit as amazing and as described. We were promptly greeted at the port and whisked away to meet our guide Valentina at the Colosseum where we began our incredible day. Valentina was...Read more

Don't go anywhere else


After investigating several tour sites (interestingly mostly managed by Americans or Irish) we settled on one which seemed to be the most local. How right we were. We decided on two semi-private tours of Rome, the Vatican one and the Tour of Rome. Both our ITALIAN tour guides were fabulous: engaging, enthusiastic and interesting. We have been on many tours on previous holidays and LivItaly has been the best by a long way. Don't go anywhere else.


Super expérience


En visitant très tôt le musée du Vatican, avant la masse habituelle de touriste.. Quelle expérience de s'asseoir dans la chapelle Sixtine pendant 3/4 d'heure et comprendre grâce à Valentina ce que l'homme a créé de plus beau jusqu'ici!!

Extremely Informative Tour with Top-Notch Guide!


My fiancee and I recently toured the Colosseum and its environs with LivItaly's Rachel, and enjoyed a first-rate experience. By booking the Colosseum Underground tour, our small group (just 2 others besides us) had access to all levels of this architectural wonder, including the seldom-seen lowest areas (where people and animals were kept prior to being raised via elevators to the arena floor). We then moved on to the Palatine Hill and Roman Forum, all the while getting a real education in Roman history from our excellent tour guide. You could start this tour with no knowledge of Roman...Read more

Ferrari Experience of a lifetime


This past Christmas break, my family spent time travelling from Venice to the Cinque Terre. On the way, we stopped in Maranello and treated ourselves to the Livitaly Ferrari experience. I must say, these beautiful cars are really something to drive, especially in the town they were made. Upon returning the Ferrari from her drive, my 18 year old daughter simply said "I want one". The same sentiment goes for my son, my wife and myself. We were all blown away by the car, the town, and the tour guide who accompanied us on our drives. He was a joy to be with and made the ride even more special...Read more

Livitaly Tour of Vatican


We signed up for the half day tour of the Vatican. Livitaly Tours was one of the best tour groups we have ever worked with. We were able to take a private tour with just my husband and I and enter the Sistine Chapel before it was open to the public for the day. Francesca our tour guide was amazing. She used an IPad to enhance the tour experience by being able to show sections of the artwork. Her english was exceptional and she even delivered a puzzle, to our apartment, of the Sistine Chapel that I forgot to buy as a gift for my father. I would highly recommend Livitaly Tours, they are...Read more


Thanks Luca!


My husband and I booked 2 tours both extremely educational and exceeding our expectations. Our guide for the Vatican clearly knew art history and could answer each question we asked. Luca took us on the Ancient Rome and Colosseum tour and we plan to send my extended family back to a tour with him next summer when they visit. He was not only very educated, very funny and liked the Ipad where he showed us the view of what the ruins would have appeared originally.

Cooking with Nonna Lina, a Fantastic Experience


I had no idea what I was in for!! My husband surprised me with this excursion. Nonna Lina and Marie were so very nice. We had so much fun hanging out at Lina's home and learning how to make homemade pasta and biscotti. I look forward to trying the recipes again in my own home for my family. It was really nice to relax in a friendly home instead of a hotel or institution. She gave us the option of letting her show us how to make pasta and her doing all the work or letting us join in. Of course, I wanted to join in. :-) I loved it and would happily do it again. I definitely recommend Nonna...Read more

We cannot praise LivItaly and the services we received highly enough. We were a family traveling with two teenagers with varying interests. One of their owners, Kristin, was available to me via Skype several times in the months prior to our trip in an attempt to understand what we were looking for and to work with us on providing it. She also responded to our many emails promptly, providing us with answers to our many questions. The results were terrific: the guides we had were great! They were able to engage, entertain, and educate all of us. In the end, even our teenagers were impressed...Read more

Running Rome - a fun way to see the city


I was honestly a little scared before my wife and I joined this tour. I was picturing an athlete as a tour guide that we would have to chase around the city. But when we meet our guide on a beautiful June morning next to Castel Sant’Angelo we knew this was going to be a cool experience, and indeed it was! Our guide ran in our pace and gave us plenty of stops to drink water in fountains and catch our breath while she was giving us information about the sites and little-known-stories about buildings and squares we were passing. This is a great tour if you want to get some exercise and see...Read more

Great fun driving Ferrari and Lamborghini on track


Our company hired LivItaly to arrange a special package for us driving a Ferrari and Lamborghini on a race track while in Rome. This event was handled perfectly by Angelo and his excellent staff. We also used LivItaly for a Segway guided tour and they also handled all our transportation needs to restaurants and to/from the airport. 

Driving the sport cars was an awesome experience and included transport to/from the race track followed by a nice lunch. The Segway guided tour was a very good way to get to know Rome. We covered a lot of the sights and our guide had very good knowledge...Read more

We had a early morning private tour of the Sistine Chapel and Vatican. It was totaly worth the money and so enjoyable. Our guide was so knowledgeable and knew how to maneuver in order to enable us to see what was important to us. On an trip, about 6 years again, we went by ourselves and the experience was horrible. This tour let us see the Sistine Chapel with about 24 people in it. The experience was incrediable. It would recommend it and LivItaly to everyone.Read more

I'm not Catholic so had a limited knowledge of the Vatican and Catholic history but am now inspired to learn more about the art collections and the history of the Vatican.

Our Rome Food tour, Rome after Dark and the Colisseum/Palantine Hill tours were all with John, whom having lived in the Enchanted City for the past eight years, knowledgably guided us through the Roman labryninth. He introduced us to interesting parts of the city that we would not have otherwise seen. He not only...Read more

Heart of Rome Semi-Private Walking Tour


Experiencing Rome with Livitaly tours was amazing! Our tour guide Rachel was so knowledgable about the city's monuments as well as the many hidden gems that the city has to offer. We were even able to see the smallest church in Rome, one in which we would have never seen with any other tour company! Every site we asked a question about Rachel had an answer, the history of it and a personal story to go along. Rachel also used an iPad to enhance our experience at sites such as the pantheon.The tour was the most personable tour I have ever been on!

We chose to take two Livitaly tours while we were in Rome.

The first was the Rome Food tour with John. Although we were told that there could be another 4 people, it was just us and John. He was very knowledgeable and we quickly developed a rapport with him and our shared love of food and wine. He was also able to show us various historical sights and shared anecdotes that made this a splendid evening to remember. This was not just a 'tasting' evening but visits to four different establishments with ample food - and wine - at each venue. The penultimate restaurant was so good we...Read more

Vatican tour like no other!


We found Livitaly when researching what to do on our trip to Rome. We decided on a 3 and 1/2 hour Vatican tour and had the lovely Barbara as a tour guide. The company was very clear about where and when to meet, and they were there with a wonderfully visible flag (it is a popular meeting site across from the Vatican) and just made things stress free. Barbara--an Italian--was so knowledgeable, friendly and above all, wanted to make sure she gave us the tour we were expecting. She did that and more. In addition to seeing the "musts" such as the Sistine Chapel and St. Peters Basilica, she...Read more

We met up at 7.30 ( mind you, the bar you are meeting in front of is closed at that time so have breakfast before), and really were ahead of everyone else.

This was an absolutely great running tour of Rome. My husband an I did the 9 am tour on Saturday and even though it was July the running route was without much traffic or tourists.

Great afternoon at the Vatican


Hi - we spent a great afternoon touring the Vatican with LivItaly. I booked it the night before and I even got an email reply from Angelo quite late from a query I had. There were six of us in Rome for a week so the fact that LivItaly only did tours for maximum of 6 people was ideal for us.

Our guide was Pamen and she was excellent and very knowledgeable.

I would highly recommend this company.

He helped us get tickets arranged and everything, for the latter part of the tour. He gave us honest advice and suggestions for nightlife and restaurants to see once done with the tour. He is fluent in both Italian and English, which made...Read more

Much more than we expected.


My wife and I paid our first visit to Rome and decided that quality was preferred to quantity when it came to selecting a tour of the Colosseum. We selected LivItaly and frankly could not have made a better choice. We were split into two groups of six and we were lucky enough to have Rachel as our guide. With her vast knowledge,coupled with an engaging personality plus amusing sense of humour, the whole tour was nothing less than a joy from start to finish.
Strongly recommended.

You can book up to 1 hr drive through the streets and the hills of the area...trust me...fun stuff even if it isn't on track.

For years it's been a dream of mine to see Roma play in person, so when my girlfriend and I saw that we had the opportunity to catch a match while we were in town we knew that we had to go. I couldn't be happier that we booked it through LivItaly, as they took care of all the pesky annoyances of things like figuring out where/how to buy tickets and how to get to the stadium (not simple tasks when your Italian is as shaky as mine!) while also leaving you feeling like you're in the lap of luxury throughout the entire night. From the moment the driver picked us up right at our hotel we felt...Read more

Worth Every Penny


We decided to book one of the semi private tours with LivItaly to see the Vatican, Sistine Chapel and St Peters Basilica. We arrived at the prearranged meeting place and was graciously greeted by Daniela. I read this in the reviews and on LivItaly's website but really did not appreciate until we arrived at the entrance....SKIP THE LINES!!!!!! There were people all over standing in line and we moved straight through and onto our adventure with Daniela. She was so very knowledgeable in every aspect of the tour. You ask her an off the wall question....bam....she answered it. Really was not...Read more


Who Knew the Vatican could be so much fun


Our tour of the Vatican, with our tour guide Valentina, was by far the highlight of our entire Italy trip. Not only did we get quick access into the Vatican, but the tour was entertaining and enlightening. There was only three of us on our tour and we were able to naviagate quickly through the building and hit all the hot spots. Our tour guide gave us an experience we would not have gotten on our own with her incrediable amount of knowledge along with her fun and entertaining delivery. There was never a dull moment and we felt like we got the best experience in a three hour period. I would...Read more

Rome Segway Private Tour


We had the best time on our 3 hour private Segway tour in October in Rome. The guide was knowledgeable, helpful and friendly and made sure we were comfortable on the segways before we went anywhere. We were a group of 3 - my husband, 14 year old daughter and I. It was so much fun. The segways are easy to operate and you stick mostly to footpaths or small side roads and cross any major roads on the crosswalks. We felt safe. It was so easy to get from one 'sight' to the next and did I mention, just so much fun! We wanted to do it again. Thank you Livitaly - highly recommended. (PS Don't be...Read more

Excellent tours and exceptional customer services!


We just finished our trip in Italy. We booked six tours with LivItaly and we can't say enough praises for their topnotch services. From the initial inquiries to all the subsequent emails leading up to the tours, they were all responded promptly. Kristin was very responsive and patient with all my questions.

We took the small group Vatican tour with Sergio, the ancient Roman and Colosseum tour with John and the sunset stroll tour with Rachael in Rome. When we were in Florence, we toured the Uffizi and took the walking tour of the city with Rafaela. While we were in Venice, we took...Read more

Spring Grove, Pennsylvania

Great tour


Booked this tour based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and were not disappointed. We chose the Colosseum & Ancient Rome Tour and when we arrived to me the tour guide we were the only ones that day (so we basically had a private tour). John was a great guide and covered a lot of interesting information both about the Colosseum and how the ancient Romans built there city and lived. You know you have a great tour guide when other guides are telling you that “you are lucky to be one on one with John”. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who would like more information about...Read more


Would have been hard to improve


We just got back from Rome and we used LivItaly for two tours (Vatican and Ancient Rome) as well as for arranging transfers. I can not recommend them high enough. The transfers were surprisingly fairly priced and service was excellent. More importantly, the tours were great. For the Vatican, it was two adults and two young kids (age 9 & 7) and the tour was given by Luca. He provided a wonderful tour for the adults, yet still did a great job keeping the kids entertained, which is a big challenge at those ages. To keep the right balance at the Vatican, which isn't that interesting for...Read more


Florence Tour


In March, we had a wonderful three hour tour of Florence with Isabella as our tour guide. She was waiting for us prior to our arrival at our meeting spot and was eager to begin to show us around. It turned out we were the only two on the tour which made it so much more personal and we enjoyed the tourist-friendly way in which Isabella presented her knowledge of Florence’s history. We were fascinated by her knowledge and were never bored. Our tour culminated in seeing Michelangelo’s David without having to wait in line. Isabella not only explained the history of the sculpture and what we...Read more

When they say small groups, they mean it!


Recently did the Colosseum Underground and Ancient Rome Small-Group Tour with LivItaly, and had an amazing time. Our guide was Luca, he was extremely knowledgeable and explained everything in the most interesting way. The book he had with the illustrations of how the buildings would have looked in ancient times was really helpful in trying to imagine how these buildings used to be. 
When they say small groups, they mean it, our group was five people (they don't do groups of more than six). We were also meet by Rachel (she took the other small group), who was also very friendly and...Read more

Best Italy Experience EVER


My roommate and I embarked upon our three week Italy tour and started in Rome. We originally signed up for both the Colosseum and Vatican tour but were SO so impressed with the quality that we added on the food tour as well. Out of all the tours I have EVER done (and I have traveled and lived in Europe extensively) this was by far the best value for your money and the education and experience was unparalleled. John was our tour guide for two of the three tours and was amazing, he helped us plan the rest of our trip and went above and beyond what is to be expected of a tour guide. I cannot...Read more


Great Value for kids


I was visiting Rome with my two children ages 8 and 11 for three days and realized on day one that I needed some help making the history accessible and interesting to them. I contacted Liveitaly on the second day and they were able to schedule a tour of the Vatican on very short notice. The woman who talked with me initially at the office took great care to get me all the information I needed with calls and emails and even met us before our tour to introduce us to our tour guide. Our tour guide was a mom herself (but Italian, so wearing high heels that did not seem to slow her over the...Read more


Definitely worth it!


I booked all of our four tours in Rome with Livitaly - Early Entrance Vatican (with Luca), Colosseum & Ancient Rome, Food Tour, and Sunset Walking Tour (all 3 with John). The last two turned out to be happily private since no one else signed up. This was a bonus for us because we were ready to be in a group of 6 (which is the maximum size of Livitaly's semi-private tours).

Livitaly promised to get us into the Vatican Museum & Sistine Chapel before the general public, and it delivered. I would say that the highlight of the tour was spending 20 minutes inside the Sistine...Read more

The Real Deal


Livitaly is a fantastic tour company that truly understands how to give the vistor both the essential 'tourist' sights as well as taking you off the beaten path. Their secret is that you don't feel like a tourist at all but a welcome guest to their city. During my two days in Rome my mother and I got to see an assortment of sights and saw the city from a true Roman perspective. I can't wait to go back again and see what else they have to offer. 


Great tour of Colosseum and Forum Romanum


This tour was a perfect mix of Forum Romanum and the fabulous Colosseum - located just a few minutes walk apart. The tour lasted for about three hours in total and if you are going to Rome, besides the Vatican, I would say that this tour covers the absolute MUST-SEEs!
Of course you can buy tickets and walk around by yourself, but It's such a difference to have someone talk about the history, answer questions not to mention how relieved I was when I saw the huge line for tickets (that we could just pass!).

The guide was very nice and definitely knew what he was talking about. We...Read more

Fabulous Vatican & Sistine Chapel Tour


Francesca was our guide for our Vatican tour. We had 4 people in our group (my husband and I, with his sister and her college-aged daughter). Being very budget minded, this was the only tour we booked on our 3 week trip to Italy and we found it to be money well spent. Our apartment owner recommended that we book a tour of the Vatican with LivItaly because there would be so much we would miss without the tour. Francesca was extremely knowledgeable and articulate and personable. The pictures on her ipad were used very effectively to help us learn about what we were seeing. Thanks Francesca...Read more

A New Aspect of Rome


We booked the Running Tour through Rome with Kristin and there is only one word to describe it: GREAT!
We were a small group, the weather was gorgeous and we ran a approx. 6.5 km tour through Rome at a very convenient pace passing most of the most spectacular sights in Rome. Kristin stopped at the most interesting spots and gave us explanation mixed with roman trivia, so we also had a lot of laughs. Kristin also gave explanations while we where running whenever we passed a spot of interest.
OK, you can learn more when you read some books and then walk through Rome searching for...Read more


Enjoyable ways to Experience Rome


We did a Segway highlights with Angelo, visited the Sistine Chapel with Pamen, and rounded off with our most entertaining guide, Luka - to see the Roman ruins and the Colosseum. Luka is the best guide on our trip, not only did he make historic Rome come to life with his iPad mock up, but his anecdotes and stories kept our (skeptical) teenagers engaged and eager for more.Read more

Very impressive and professional


Due to a terrific experience with LivItaly in 2009, I arranged a tour of the Vatican for 7 women for the second day we were in Rome. Angelo, the owner, was quickly responsive to all of my emails. Our flight from the US was canceled and we did not know when we would arrive. Angelo was very understanding and worked hard to make sure we would not miss anything. He sent a car for us to the hotel so that we could arrive promptly for the tour. We didn't miss a beat. Angelo is a brilliant guide who skillfully leads and teaches as he maneuvers through the crowds. It was hard to take it all in in...Read more

Fantastic Guide!


Luca was, in a word, amazing. We (five of us) had booked the early-entry private tour of the Vatican, including the Vatican museum and Basilica as well as the Sistine Chapel. It was on Good Friday, and because of the crowds, the early-morning entry turned out to be essential! Luca was informative, funny, encouraged questions (his English is superb, spoken with a charming yet easy-to- understand accent), and allowed us sufficient time to just gape at the visual glory all around us; we never felt rushed. He ended up giving us a longer tour than we expected, perhaps because as the morning...Read more

Treat yourself to a private tour of the Vatican--it's worth it!



You spend a lot of money to get to Rome and it's tempting to try and save money on a tour, but why go and not know what you are seeing? Our guide Andrea met us across from the Vatican entrance (he was there early holding a sign and was easy to find). We walked past all the people in line and went right in. I wouldn't have even known where to go to get in if I was there without a guide. The place is massive and we would not have understood the significance of what we saw (or which way to move through the crowded museum) without Andrea. He directed our attention to the most...Read more

Best Tour Company We Used in Italy


We recently took the Ancient Rome and Colosseum tour and it was the highlight of our vacation. We used several different tour companies on our trip to Rome, and we are disappointed we didn't only use LivItaly. Our guide, John, was funny and intelligent and was able to teach us about all of the history of the sites in an informative and entertaining manner. The groups are extremely small so you are able to ask questions and almost customize your tour based on the questions you have! In fact, we were the only people for the time slot we chose so it was as if we had our own private guide....Read more


Underground and Colosseum Tour


This was the first tour we took on an absolutely fabulous family trip. I can say that the small group tours offered by LivItaly are fantastic. We tried other tours and companies and really came to see that the small tours are where it is at. Our tour guide Rachel was very patient and understanding of our young daughters questions and kept her engaged throughout the whole tour. At no time did we feel pressured to get thru the attraction and she seamlessly adapted the itinerary's order to keep us away from the crowds. All that while constantly feeding interesting facts and pictures! I can...Read more

Wonderful tours!


While LivItaly’s semi-private tours may cost a little more than the larger group tours, they are worth every penny. We did the “Early Entrance Vatican Small Group Tour” and the ‘Colosseum & Ancient Rome Small Group Tour.” The early entrance Vatican tour gets you into the Vatican Museum when the crowds are low. Being a small group, we were able to move quickly to the Sistine Chapel. We were able to see the wonder of Michelangelo’s masterpiece with maybe 75-100 other people. When we passed through 90 minutes later on our way to St. Peter’s Basilica, there were maybe 1,000 people in the...Read more

You won't find a better tour guide in Rome


My girlfriend and I booked five tours with Livitaly the week we were in Rome. We started with the Sunset Walking Tour when we arrived and quickly got into the romance and beauty of this wonderful city. The next day we did the Elite Private Colosseum & Ancient City Tour with John. It was like exploring the ruins with an archaeoligist he was so knowledgeable. Friday we did the Catacombs and Appia Antica Tour in the morning and the After-Hours Vatican Tour in the Moonlight that evening. By all means if you are in Rome on Friday book this tour to see the Vatican and Sistine Chapel. There...Read more

Perfect Tour


LivItaly's tour was great. We subscribed to the Vatican tour and were greeted by both Kirstin and Sergio. After a brief introduction, we were taken into the vatican skipping all the lines. Meanwhile Sergio told us (and the kids) stories about the Vatican and really brought the place to life. The kids enjoyed the tour as well and this was mainly due to Sergio's capabilities of adjusting the tour to their liking (visiting areas that were related to their names; telling stories that brought tapestries to life). The tour was scheduled for 3.5 hours but Sergio took his time showing us all the...Read more


Must do - while in Rome with this company


If you are travelling to Rome and you want to see the Vatican City, we highly recommend Livitaly Tours. Their staff is proffessional, courteous and punctual. The manager Kristen will personally meet you and introduce you to your tour guide. Our tour guide was Alexandra,she is an amazing Art Historian. She is very proffessional, informative and always wanted to give more information. She answered all of our questions, even our children (7yrs, 11yrs,and 13 yr old) we're very entertained with her explanation and patience.

Private Vatican & Sistine Chapel Night Tour


In October 2013 my husband, 14 year old daughter and I visited the Vatican at night for a 3 hour private tour done through Livitaly Tours. Our guide was Lucca. We all enjoyed it so much. Lucca was extremely knowledgeable - he imparted so much information and answered all our questions. He has a very dry sense of humour which we all appreciated. Our teenager was not bored once during the whole 3 hours. They flew by. The lighting is very good, you can easily see everything and I was able to take photos without a flash. The crowds are so much less at night. When we got to the Sistine Chapel...Read more

This was our first trip to Rome and we wanted to see some of the obvious attractions without the tiresome queuing that seems to be a regular feature of the attractions here. We found Livitaly on Tripadvisor whilst looking for an early morning tour of The Vatican and St. Peter's. We booked the tour by email and our guide was Pamen who met us on time at 07.30 outside the Vatican. By 08.00 we entered The Vatican ahead of the crowds. The highlight of this particular tour was the Sistine Chapel and we were sharing it with only about 30 other people giving us plenty of time and room to look...Read more


Tidig morgon tour-personlig och bra


Jag kom till Rom med lite orealistiskt höga förväntningar på Vatikanmuséet, då jag drömt om att besöka denna magiska plats i flera år. Jag visste på förhand att min vistelsen kanske inte skulle leva upp till mitt huvuds imitation pågrund av opersonliga guidningar och uttröttande köerna, redan in till Vatikanen. Då fick jag det kloka och korrekta rådet att gå Livitalys "early morning tour", vi var en mindre grupp som hann före dagens rusning och fick tillsammans med vår professionella guide några fantastiska och oförglömliga timmar i Vatikanmuseet

Three tours with LivItaly and no disappointments!


We were in Rome for a medical meeting and had a little time before and after, and were so impressed w the reviews and offerings from LivItaly that we booked three tours and all were great. We had John for the Sunset Walking tour and the private wine tasting, and he was fantastic. He gave us his honest opinions and not just the tourist party line, and that was so refreshing. Amazing knowledge. Same for early morning admission to Sistine chapel and Vatican museums. Paolo was a college professor who again gave us his frank opinions about Roman life and religious history, always so respectful...Read more


Four Fabulous Tour


My husband and I signed up for 4 tours with LivItaly (Private Supreme Sistine Vatican Early Entrance Tour, Private Rome by Vespa Tour, Semi-Private Ancient Ruins and Colosseum Tour all in Rome and a Private Uffizi and Accademia Tour in Florence). ALL of the tours were wonderful. Our favorite was the private Supreme Sistine Tour with Kristen Ellis. We were able to enter the Sistine Chapel at 8am (opens at 9am to the public), so there were NO crowds. We could enjoy viewing Michelangelo's masterpiece in quiet, while Kristen meticulously went through the details of his work. Her fund of...Read more


Great way to learn about the city!


Had a great time, Angelo was there promptly at 9am and the pace was completely based on how fast I wanted to go. Covered almost 4 miles of the city in an hour, which was way more than I could do with the family!

Running Tour of Rome



I have been to Italy 3 times and this is my favorite tour I have ever taken! I have always wanted to take a running tour in a large city and this tour exceeded all my expectations! Kristin was extremely informative and did an amazing job. I learned several new things that I have not heard of on any other tour in Rome. I was in Rome for 8 days and did this tour on day 2 which was perfect because I was able to familarize myself with the city right away since we ran passed all the major areas (plus more!). I have friends going to Rome in a few weeks and this was the first thing I...Read more

Vatican Museum Tour - AMAZING


I went on the Vatican Museum tour last week, early entrance, we arrived at 7:20am. We got to see the Sistine Chapel with only 15 or so other people present. I recommend doing this, it is really the way to go if you want to see the Sistine Chapel! It was very serene, you could walk around and privately observe the iconic masterpiece and soak it in however you like. When we exited and when back through the chapel hours later, it was so packed full of people that you could hardly walk. People were jammed in like sardines. The tour was very private, only 4 people total and then the guide,...Read more

I could not have imagined a better tour of the Vatican (7:45am). Our guide, Carl, was extremely well informed and made the history come alive for me.

For this once in a lifetime experience, it was perfection!Read more

Vatican Tour and Colosseum/Roman Forums Tours


Excellent experience with LivItaly Tours. I was on a trip to Rome with a group of 6 people. Based upon a recommendation from someone who had already used LivItaly, we booked two tours in advance. We did both the Vatican Tour and The Colosseum + Colosseum Underground tours. As advertised, the group sizes are no larger than 6, so my group comprised the entire tour group.

The booking process was very painless, and all of the questions I asked via email were answered promptly and the answers were very helpful. Customer service was definitely A+ through the entire process.

Two Fantastic Tours


We were lucky enough to book two tours through LivItaly. The first one was the early entry Vatican tour with Ferdinando. The best surprise was discovering we were the only participants! Ferdinando was full of fantastic knowledge and was very engaging. The early entrance was absolutely worth waking up early for -- the Sistine Chapel was almost empty, and we were able to learn about so many other areas of the Vatican. 

A couple days later we met Giuliano for the Forum and Colosseum tour. Again, we were lucky enough to have the tour to ourselves. Giuliano had so much information to...Read more

The small group does make a difference when going on these type of tours. In this type of small group you get personal attention, and it makes it easier for you to ask questions and learn more information.

Three Tours, Three Fabulous Experiences!


I'm not sure I can add much to the hundreds of excellent reviews on Livitaly but can't help but want to sing their praises.

To start, Angelo and Kristin (the owners) are great. Responsive, accommodating and very attentive. Angelo and I must have exchanged a dozen emails setting up our tours. Kristin made it a point to greet us on our last tour and thank us for our business. A very professional and friendly company. All the guides were knowledgable and personable. And as a added bonus we got to skip every line. It was clear the Livitaly tour guides are well known by the staff at each...Read more

The Best Decision


I had the most amazing time on this running tour, and honestly I wish I found it sooner as I would have done more. Kristin was very knowledgeable and I felt like I got the inside scoop on a lot of the sights I had already seen which put such a different light to them. Also booking this being from another country with really no phone and not really knowing where I was or how to get to them didn't end up being a problem. Angelo called my hotel, walked me through how to meet Kristin so that I felt comfortable getting there. I would recommend this to everyone who loves to be active. It was...Read more

Angelo runs a tight ship. He was very professional and responsive, always answering emails immediately and being flexible. We had to reschedule our tour of the Colesseum to start a bit later. Our schedule changed due to bad weather. We were taking the ferry back from Capri then driving from Naples so we were afraid we would not make the appointed time. We had booked a semi-private tour and luckily no one was scheduled with us. Angelo kindly agreed to push our tour back a couple of hours. And we got a private tour to boot! The guides were great. The other tour we did the following day was...Read more


Rome Wine and Concert


On July, my wife and me decided to take this tour with LivItaly. We were both very happy at the end. It started with Angelo showing us some of the historical center at sunset, when Rome becomes even more gorgeous! Then we had an apperitivo with some very good wine and vast assortment of food. The main part of the evening was the concert at St.Ivo's church. I think that this church is often overlooked by tourists and is not well known as other places... but it really deserves a visit! The real "problem" is that there's too much to see in this city! The concert was amazing (tango, with...Read more


Wonderful Tour of Rome


We took the tour of the ancient city and Coliseum with John as our tour guide. Our family of four was on the tour with our two teenagers. John was an incredible tour guide! He's from the US so his English is obviously great, and his knowledge of Roman history exceptional. He was able to answer every question we had and was always cognizant of the children's needs also. He and Livitaly also helped arrange for much mor affordable transportto our cruise ship the next day than what our hotel had offered. Would highly recommend.Read more


Excellent Company with Incredible Service

We just got back from a trip to Rome, Venice, and Florence. LivItaly made it the trip of our lives.

In Venice, we did the walking tour with Francesca, and in Florence, we did the market tour with Raffaela. Every single guide was deeply knowledgeable, welcoming, and lots of fun. We felt so well cared for every step of the way. And the tours were an outstanding value. Thanks, LivItaly!Read more

Outstanding Experience


My wife and I toured Ancient Rome and the Colosseum with LivItaly and the experience was fantastic as noted by many tripadvisor users. Our tour guide, John, was American so he was able to relate to us very well. His knowledge was excellent and he was very accommodating with picture-taking, stopping for breaks, etc. He also gave an excellent recommendation for a restaurant when the tour was over. My only complaint would be that the tour was supposed to be 3 hours. Our tour guide left us at 3 hours, but we had just gotten to the Colosseum. He explained what we needed to know about the...Read more

We booked two tours with LivItaly and both were fantastic. We did the Colosseum/Ancient Rome tour and our tour guide was John. He was excellent! We also did the early morning Vatican tour which was suggested by LivItaly and was absolutely the way to go to see the Sistine Chapel before the general public is admitted. LivItaly was a pleasure to deal with from their very descriptive website, ease of booking, transportation service to the tours and the actual tours themselves. I am not sure how you could have had a quality visit to these sights without the insight from the tour guides. Thanks...Read more

Vatican Tour with LivItaly - Child friendly


My real concern when looking up companies was how they dealt with children. My husband and I traveled a lot with our little 1,5 year old, but we know it can be hard in large museums and long tours. When I found LivItaly and saw that they only had semi-private tours with just 6 people I contacted them immediately. I got an email a few hours later assuring me that children were well accepted on their tours. I didn't want to trust them right away...you know...they can say just about anything when they know you are about to book. But then I read some of their reviews on tripadvisor and found...Read more

Great way to learn about Rome's masterpieces


This was our first visit to Rome with only 2.5 days to visit the main sites. We did a lot of research on which tour companies offered the best packages within our limited time span. We fortunately stumbled onto LivItaly. Their prices were higher than the other companies but the quality of the tours we received by Francesca and Rachel were well worth the price.

Francesca personally guided us around the Vatican, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. No lines to wait in with excellent historical information on the major works of art throughout these amazing buildings. Francesca was...Read more

Awesome Running Tour with Knowledgeable Guide


I booked this tour, as I knew I'd be eating my way through Italy and wanted a way to exercise and still sight-see. Kristin was absolutely fantastic! Not only was the tour pretty much private (only my sister and I), but we got to choose our pace and ask as many questions as we wanted! Kristin really knows her stuff, and one of the best parts about the tour was all the fun little stories we got to hear about the different sites. On a running tour, you also get to go where regular tours don't, so in addition to main sites, we got to see the cutest little street in Rome and other sights that...Read more


Bravissimo! A definite "don't miss!


We scheduled our tour with LivItaly, and Ryan was the best guide ever! An 8 am tour was suggested and the first 4-5 rooms of our tour were empty! We had only 3 in our group and it felt like a private tour. Not only did Ryan take us through the Vatican museum, he then gave us a crash course on the Sistine Chapel and the Basilica. Don't miss it, and take the early tour. Request Ryan as your guide, you won't regret it!Read more


You won't regret it!! One of the highlights of our trip!
