The History of Art and Architecture has always moved me, being unlimited fuel for other passions such as travelling and getting in touch with different cultures, perspectives and conceptions of the world. I am a Brazilian Architect who found in the city of Rome itself the school of my dreams. I'm currently an Architecture-Conservation Master's student in Rome, and for me it is natural to perceive the city as a living document ready to be read and appreciated. Therefore, it will be a pleasure for me to share with you some knowledge and enrich your perceptions on the Eternal City, together with its symbols, its paths along History and the magnificent Cultural Heritage it produced for Humanity.

This tour was absolutely outstanding. Pedro is very well versed with the architecture and history of Rome and was able to provide a unique insight into many of the popular, but also lesser known sites of the city. He managed to show us the intricacies hidden in small details, be it in the pattern of tile on the floors, or within the elaborate paintings on the ceilings of churches.

This was hands-down one of the most intellectually engaging tours i’ve been on!

Pedro was so knowledgeable & able to convey so much info in an accessible, friendly & easy going way, that it was impossible not to be fully engrossed & engaged with many different aspects of Rome's history. Best tour I've been on!

Amazing, Amazing, Amazing! Pedro is such a great tour guide .... No I am not just saying that - I have been on many many walking tours around the globe & this one really impressed me.

Pedro is very friendly & professional with extensive knowledge of Rome that he explains perfectly helping you learn so much. I was thinking - 3km surely won't take 3 hours but by the end of the tour I felt I could stay learning from Pedro for 3 hours more!! It is a well planned, well thought-out tour that shows you some of the big tourist attractions including Trevi Fountain.

I spent 4 days in Rome & the day I landed I did this tour. This was a highlight for me as it gave me such a great understanding of what I was looking at as I wandered Rome & it helped me get my bearings.

Do yourself a favour & book this tour. You will not regret it.

Pedro was awesome! If you want to see more of the city than just the main area this tour is for you. First let me say that Pedro was very knowledgeable on the 9 Piazzas he took us to as well as having a plethora of knowledge about the city in general. He is studying Aretacheture so he was able to explain some incredible interesting points about how the city was designed to evoke emotions and experiences through its buildings. He provided a walking tour different from any we had ever been on and by far the best one! If you want to not only see the city but to also try to understand it though its design then this is the tour for you. Thank you so much Pedro!
