Experience Italy like never before

Roads to Rome Private Tours is the accomplishment of a vision. Since the beginning, our objective was to create a company able to establish a human relationship with the clients. We didn’t want our customers to feel just like names on a list, but we wanted to put their needs, desires, and expectation at the center of our vision. We believed that our knowledge of archaeology, history, art, and Italian culture would help us provide high-quality tours, but we wanted them to be also personal and entertaining. That’s why we select our guides very carefully, choosing professionals who have not only a solid background but also an engaging personality, and who can turn our tours into the highlights of your vacation. We don’t provide only tours, but memories to last a lifetime.

Giovanni Vergineo

Founder

Giovanni is the Founder of Roads to Rome Private Tours.

His passion for history inspired him to study archaeology at the University of Salerno (bachelor and master) and Rome (post-graduate diploma). Giovanni founded Roads to Rome Private Tours right after completing his studies: his dream was to share his knowledge and love for Italian art, archaeology, and history with people from all over the world, and to make it entertaining. He is also a licensed tour guide, and he loves showing Rome to our clients. Giovanni has done digs in many important archaeological sites, such as the Roman Forum, the Palatine Hill, and the Fanum Voltumnae in Orvieto, where he has worked for over ten years.

Maurizio Fascitiello

Managing Director

Maurizio is the Managing Director of Roads to Rome Private Tours.

Since his childhood, he has had a deep interest in art, fed by traveling and exploring cities and sights. His love for beauty led him to study Archaeology at the University of Naples. As an archaeologist, Maurizio has done digs in Italy and the Near East, joined study conferences, and published scientific papers. In 2011 he became a professional tour guide and met Giovanni. They became friends and quickly realized that they had the same vision of the tour business; Maurizio decided to join Roads to Rome Private Tours in 2016. Passion, culture, and precision are the essential words in his vocabulary. Whenever possible, he jumps at the chance to lead a client in Rome.
