A new way of discovering the wonders of Rome

Treat yourself to one or more private walking tours!  A variety of itineraries will tickle your fancy, whether you want to talk about the spice trade over an ancient Roman lunch, discuss quality engineering while crossing a bridge built in 130 A.D., follow the evolution of Christian art in mosaic-spangled churches, or giggle at the risquè interior decorating of a Renaissance villa.  Each visit is aimed at delighting single travelers, people touring with family and / or friends, and school groups of all ages.

Daniella Hunt is an experienced and friendly American guide, who will offer you the benefit of her training, her ongoing research, her many years in Rome, and her linguistic expertise.  If this is your first trip to Rome, one or more private visits with her will make "the standards" unforgettable.  If you've been to Rome numerous times, she'll gladly accompany you to less frequented attractions.  In either case, she is willing to tailor visits to meet your needs. 

Whatever visits you choose, Daniella will awaken your interests and deepen your appreciation of Rome.  While meandering through the city's spectacular side-streets, artistic attractions, and archeological areas, you'll start feeling Roman yourself! 

What does "Mirabilia Urbis" mean??

Guidebooks are nothing new. Around 1000 A.D., pilgrims, travelers and merchants coming to Rome were already using several different guidebooks (such as the illustration to the right) to find and enjoy the Eternal City's treasures. Mirabilia Urbis was just one of many titles that were circulating back then. The author of its contents, which are in Latin, remains anonymous. Its title, Mirabilia Urbis, means "The Marvels of the City" -- "the City" is Rome, of course!

Mirabilia Urbis Walking Tours welcomes you to Rome and explains the sights you want to see going back to the source, that is: using Latin texts taken from all genres and periods. After all, the best explanation of "the City's" monuments and history is going to come from the biographers, poets, historians and everyday people who used to live here.
