Chiara Antonelli Rome Tours

My name is Chiara Antonelli. I became a professional tourist guide in 2010 after graduating from La Sapienza University of Rome with a degree in art history.

As a native Roman, I can offer you a truly unique experience exploring all that Rome has to offer. Whether it is exploring the eternal city’s most famous monuments or discovering the lesser known hidden gems, I can tailor a tour to your specific interests and time constraints.

I am licensed tour guide by the City of Rome, fluent in both Italian and English, and offer both private and semi-private tours.

Rome is history, Rome is beauty, Rome is pure emotion.

My goal is to make your Roman holiday unforgettable!

My Tours

VATICAN

Let me take you to the smallest state in the world and the home of the Pope of the Catholic Church. With less than 1000 inhabitants, the Vatican sits on 121 acres inside a two mile border within Rome.
Tour includes the highlights of the Vatican Museums (famous ancient statues, tapestries and maps), the majesty of the Sistine Chapel and a visit to St. Peter's Basilica.

SQUARES AND FOUNTAINS

Perhaps nothing is more whimsical than exploring the main squares and fountains on a city walking tour through the charming alleys of the historic center. During this experience you will be enchanted by the beauty and rich history of the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon and Navona square!

ANCIENT ROME

We will walk in the footsteps of the Gladiators as we explore the largest amphitheater ever built and one of the greatest works of Roman architecture and engineering. After discovering the secrets of the Colosseum I will take you to the Roman Forum which was the heart of ancient Rome where the important religious, political, and social activities of the time took place.

ROME IN A DAY TOUR

Visiting Rome in one day is possible!!! During this 8 hours customizable tour I will take to the most iconic places of the city: Vatican, Colosseum, Trevi fountain, Pantheon and Navona square. I coul also provide shore excursions and private transfers from/to Civitavecchia harbour for cruise passengers.

Chiara Rocks! Chira led our family of four, (y/a children) on a high energy, informative, and intuitive private tour. Chiara knows her history and knows her audience (she adapted to our baseline knowledge and skipped to the plot - which was appreciated). She advocates for her guests and clearly has relationships inside the ropes. We had a great day!

Coliseum tour We toured the Coliseum with Chiara on a small group tour. Chiara made the tour one of our favorite experiences in Rome. She is incredibly knowledgeable about Roman history and explained it in a way that was interesting and kept the group highly engaged. If you are planning a trip to Rome we strongly recommend Chiara as your tour guide! She will not disappoint!

Best Tour of Rome Truly the most wonderful tour I have ever been on. Chiara brings history to life when traveling the city of Rome. My wife and I booked a few tours with Chiara and we were blown away. She is such a wealth of knowledge and will help you see the purpose and meaning of everything around you. Her passion for the history and art are as vibrant as her outgoing personality. We will definitely book again and urge anyone interested in the best tour of Rome to contact our favorite guide. Thank you for a great time!

Rome is better with a little Chiara Our tour with Chiara was awesome, not only was she full of knowledge about the history of the Vatican, Sistine Chapel, Colosseum and Forum, but she made it fun, and she made us part of the tour by keeping us involved with questioning us. She was smart, witty and funny, one of the best tour guides ever and I highly recommend her if you're planning a vacation to Rome and want to do a tour. Thank you, Chiara, for making these tours part of our memories of our time in Rome, you're awesome!!!

Chiara - The Heart of Rome We went on two tours in Rome with Chiara Antonelli. The first day was the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. The Vatican Museums house exquisite art collections, archeology and the stories of the people and their history. The Sistine Chapel is ceiling work by Michelangelo is breathtaking. St Peter's Basilica is one of the holiest sites of Christianity. Nothing I have written here can compare to the amount of information regarding art and Roman history given to us by Chiara. Chiara was incredibly knowledgeable and took us through a historical journey that was absolutely mesmerizing. Her heart and rich perspective were beyond description. The second tour day was at the Colosseum and the Forum. Again, Chiara was a river of information in history, architecture and the stories of people and their history. The amazing structures built at a time you would not think possible. Absolute amazement. Chiara is a beautiful soul, intelligent and learned woman. She opens your hearts and your minds taking you to places you could not have dreamed of. Chiara recommended several places to eat in different areas in Rome and Trastevere, both of which were phenomenal. I not only recommend this woman, I insist that should you travel her way, you hire her services. You would be a fool not to.

Meaningful and enriching experience in Rome! Chiara was our personal guide/navigator for 2 days at the Colosseum, Pantheon and the Vatican Museums. Chiara is very knowledgeable and makes the experience feel special and (almost!) as private as possible. She brought many things to our attention that made the visits fascinating. Chiara was helpful with the advance tickets, meeting instructions were clear, punctuality was perfect, and the restaurant tip spot on! Most importantly, we had fun, enjoyed ourselves, learned a lot, and thanks to Chiara, had a meaningful and enriching experience navigating our way through the myriad of treasures that Rome has to offer.

We had 3 very different types of tours with her (Vatican and Sistine Chapel, Coliseum and Roman Forum, and a walking/food tour of Rome), and each tour was exciting and unique. Chiara is a wealth of knowledge in many areas of Rome and makes each tour fun and exciting. She is experienced and a licensed tour guide which was important to us when looking for a tour guide.
