Rome is a city that is full of several historical sights all over the city however; just like many vacation destinations, it is also full of tourist traps as well as unsafe areas of town. For those wishing to enjoying walking around Rome to see the sights, you must either stay with the other tourists and stand in long lines, or you can choose the better alternative and hire a private guide. With a private guide your safety as well as your enjoyment is the most important thing. This means your private official guide will ensure that you avoid long lines and tourist traps as well as keep an eye out for your safety.
You may think that taking a tour bus or riding around in a taxi is the best way to see Rome, but this is not true. In Italy, a taxi driver cannot be a tour guide.
