My story

Ciao, my name is Vlad, I'm a freelance photographer. I've been in Italy for 1,5 years and I would love to share my love and passion for this country with others. If you want to have some professional photos from your trip to Rome and also learn about life in Italy from a local – I would love to be your photographer!

What do I do here?

In August 2018 I changed my life completely: left my career as a manager of supermarket, moved to Italy and made my hobby a full-time job. Now I am a writer (blog, content for websites and novels) and photographer. After a year and a half, I learned a lot about Rome and would love to share my knowledge with you.

What's the best of my city?

All of the Italian cities are amazing: they have own cuisine, traditions, and history. But Rome is the most special among them. It used to be the capital of the Roman Empire and every street here resembles the greatness of this ancient country. There is no other city in the world where you can walk out of the subway station and face an ancient architecture.

My tours secret sauce

Want to know facts about Rome so interesting you will share them with all your friends? Want to see all the main attractions, but also visit narrow streets and enjoy the Roman atmosphere? Eat a cornetto 🥐 for a breakfast like a true Italian and after that taste the best carbonara in Rome? Do you want all of it to be captured on photos? If the answer is "Yes" then we will have an amazing time.
