Italy Heritage & History Tours

From the Roman empire to the Mussolini dictatorship, there’s no question Italy has had a colourful and poignant history on the world stage. We all remember sitting in history class listening to our teacher drone on about Caesar and the Pope, but to truly understand Italy, one needs to hire an Italian sightseeing guide who specializes in history and heritage.

Whether you are exploring its famous cities or its quaint villages and towns, hiring a guide in Italy will make all the difference because you won’t have to worry about any language barriers, you’ll be treated like a VIP and you’ll be in the company of a professional storyteller who will help make history come alive in a way your college professor never could. Instead of carting around maps and books that only serve to share names, facts and dates, hire a heritage-history guide who will help you to relive what it was like to be an Italian citizen in any era.

Imagine being a local of Pompeii in 79AD right before Mt Vesuvius erupted and covered the city in ash? Or a resident of Rome when Michelangelo was painting his fresco on the ceiling of Sistine Chapel. Or seeing architects Guglielmo and Bonanno Pisano oversee the finishing touches on the Leaning Tower of Pisa? Or watching from the city walls as Attila and his Huns stormed Venice in the 5th Century?

There is so much heritage in the country of Italy that it’s impossible to appreciate it all in just one visit, but a sightseeing guide will definitely help history come alive for you. And they’ll be sure to show you sites, and tell you stories, that you would have otherwise missed. To truly appreciate the vast history and heritage that has laid the foundation for one of the most colourful and interesting countries in the world, definitely enlist the services of a heritage-history guide in Italy.
