About Julietta

I always test my guests during tours. I know that they are in vacation and they are doing just this as a holiday but I love to teach people and it makes me so happy to think they will remember Rome for the rest of their lives.

It doesn’t matter what age you are, when you take a tour you should be a child. That is, you should let your inner child emerge, because the most important thing you can bring to a tour is curiosity.

My daughter is my lovely little barbarian. I took her to the Roman Forum when she was 8 and she said "Mommy, what a boring place. Everything is broken." When I showed her the altar where the body of Julius Caesar was cremated, she said "But this is just a bunch of dust." But, if you know what happened to that bunch of dust, all the things he did and all that he created you will understand why this humble building is one of the most important structuresthat we have in the Roman Forum.

I love Rome most during the early mornings and late afternoons in November. The tourists have left the city, everything is less crowded, and Rome gets this special light, like a shower of gold, that suffuses everything.

_People always ask me why I don’t get tired of going to the same places over and over. _ in high season, you might take people to the Vatican Museums seven days a week or even twice a day. It doesn’t really bother me, though, because the people are always different and they always bring a different energy. It’s that energy that gets me out of bed in the morning. If you always had the same people on tours that would be boring, but in instead, i get to have new people every day and that really helps me create new energy with every group of people.
