A THOUSAND thank you!!!

Look at those numbers!


“Give me a thousand reviews, then a hundred,
then another thousand, then a second hundred,
then yet another thousand, then a hundred;
then, when we have performed many thousands,
we shall shake them into confusion, in order for us to lose the count,
and in order not to let any evil person envy us,
as no one will be aware of how many tours have there been.”


The famous Latin poet Catullus will not be angry at us for using (and changing just so slightly :P) his beautiful verses to celebrate a massive achievement of these days: Made in Rome Tours reached over a THOUSAND reviews on Tripadvisor.

And not just any reviews: over 80% of them rated us with “Excellent” or 5 stars, putting us in the first 20 tours of Rome and awarding our team the Badge of Excellence.

We are happy and proud to share this accomplishment with you because it shows in numbers what we believe in: sharing the beauty of Rome with every single person coming to our eternal city with passion and integrity, making the experience interesting and unique, in spite of the difficulties of the last couple of pandemic years.

We also really want to thank you back, for every smile, laugh, walk, pointed finger and interested question you posed: THANK YOU a thousand time back! Our work would not be so incredible without the huge privilege of meeting so many engaging human beings along the way.



The Sistine Chapel details series – 1

The immense beauty of the Sistine Chapel, inside the Vatican Museums, is not a secret. The vastness of its space and the  quantity of masterpieces in the same room can be overwhelming though, and missing some details is very easy.

This series aims to share individual panels or paintings so to offer some additional information to the curious, since each pictorial fragment of the chapel is a wonder in its own right.

But first, some historical information.

Why is it called SISTINE Chapel? The chapel is named after the pope who decided its construction in 1477, Sixtus IV.

Where is it? Inside the Vatican Museums, adjacent to St. Peter’s Basilica and physically connected to it through a gallery.

Who worked on its realization? The most important artists of the time were employed for the decoration of the chapel: Pietro Perugino, Domenico ‘il Ghirlandaio” Bignardi, Alessandro Filipepi known as Botticelli, Cosimo Rosselli, Piero di Cosimo, Signorelli, Bartolomeo della Gatta, fra’ Diamante, Bernardino di Leto (Pinturicchio). And only in a second moment, between 1508 and 1512, Michelangelo Buonarroti, called in to paint the altar wall and  the vault of the room by pope Julius II.
