WELCOME TO LIZ LEV TOURS!
It would probably shock you to discover that my first impression of Rome 30 years ago wasn't the best. After the orderly town of Bologna, Rome seemed noisy, crowded and dirty. But as I studied her art, learned her history and enjoyed many magical experiences, I grew to love the Eternal City so much that I moved here to stay.
I know Rome can be chaotic at times, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. As a guide, my mission is to make sure people don't leave with my mistaken first impression but to show them the city I love, why I love it and the special secrets that I have learned about it.
My team and I have different backgrounds (Italian, British, German and American) and at we have different perspectives but what we have in common is a passion to show you the best of Rome, the most wonderful city in the world!
