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.

Amazing experience A friend of mine recommended Chiara for a tour of the Vatican and it was the most memorable tour we had on our entire trip! Chiara is an extremely kind and passionate tour guide who kept my husband and I engaged and entertained throughout our entire tour. She was very committed to making sure we really understood the history of the Vatican thoroughly, selected some wonderful pieces to show us, shared anecdotes and her own personal favourites. We learned about sculptures and artwork we never knew existed and left with a newfound appreciation for the history, culture and art of the Vatican. She answered all of our questions so thoughtfully and if you have even a slight interest in history, she is someone you could talk to for hours! I would confidently recommend Chiara to anyone I know going to Rome and I will book her again for our next visit!

Chiara is the BEST guide for your time in Rome! We had the best time with Chiara! Our family of 6 enjoyed learning all about the Colosseum, the Forum and a perfect day at the Vatican. She was so knowledgeable and passionate about the ancient history and incredible art in her gorgeous Rome. Most impressive of all, she was engaging and entertaining keeping our teens and younger kids interested and following along. Thank you so much for sharing your wealth of knowledge and beautiful time spent!

Lucky me Of course I am another tourist as anyone else. But making the effort to get up early, to book a tour via ItaliaTours ánd meeting my guide: Chiara Antonelli, made this tour a very exclusive extraordinary experience! Not only avoiding the potential massive waiting lines, but also getting a personal, up close, almost intimate experience in every large sacred and or historical area. Like we’re personally invited to discover the Vatican. All because of Chiara’s amazing energy, very good English, but maybe most important, her humor. Bringing all of the important details with fresh energy, entertaining anecdotes or even her personal opinion. If you want to discover the Vatican, I say: Yes do it! But with the following necessary items on your checklist: - try to visit Rome/Vatican in the low season. We were here beginning of December. Still tourists and some places crowded, but manageable and when you time it right, amazingly quiet. - when you want to see the hot spots, go as early as possible on a day - when you want a guided tour, go for the best. It’s worth the money because you get so much more back and is a direct enrichment of your experience - And now more personal. When possible try to book a tour with Chiara. Not downplaying any guides that do also their utmost best. But me thinking after walking away from the Vatican “…such a mysterious place, loaded with so much stories. Having it almost to our selfs with Chiara there as our host. Lucky me” should say enough.
