I am an American living in Rome 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. Over the past 10 years, I’ve showed the beauty and secret of Rome and Italy to more than 7,000 and received thousands of 5-star reviews. Now I’m bringing this masterpieces to your home with this online experience. You can check out mine Instagram profile @romewithmike

Great tour; knowledgeable host who was attentive to everyone in the group. Really helped us come together as a family during the pandemic!

This was an absolutely fantastic experience - one of the best I've done! Learning about Caravaggio was, of course, interesting, but Mike made it incredibly entertaining. This is not your typical lesson about the artist and the Baroque period - it's a very clever and unique. The experience is structured well, and Mike is not only professional, he's also hilarious. Do yourself a favor and book this online experience. You will not regret it!

Mike is a funny, down to earth and knowledgeable guy. Well worth the price of admission and time! Pub quiz at the end to reinforce what I learned was a nice touch.

I love Caravaggio art and it was wonderful to see it again. Michael is a master at discussing the nuances of the pictures. Not only is the art discussed, but also Caravaggio’s life. It was a magical trip to Rome.

Michael was great! He was fun, exciting and certainly knew his subject material! He answered all of our questions and made the Baroque period and Caravaggio come alive. Learned a lot and will look forward to doing more tours with him.

Mike is a fantastic tour guide and we will definitely be opting for one of his in-person tours when that is possible. In the meantime, this is the next best thing!
