Jowita Ludwikiewicz, authorized tour guide
I have Polish origin but it’s been quite some time since I left my homeland. Different events in my life have tossed me around the world but finally I chose to come to Rome.
You can say that between Rome and myself it was love at first sight.
I still remember how much I enjoyed passing hours sitting at the Trevi Fountain watching tourists throw coins into it. I guess this is where my desire to get to know every inch of Rome, was born.
It took years of studies, thousands of pages turned and hundreds of books devoured to accumulate the knowledge necessary to become what the Romans call a “Cicerone,” or more commonly an authorized tour guide in Rome. To my clients I always say that I have the best job in the world because I made my PASSION become my PROFESSION.
By the way I also have the most beautiful office in the world… In fact, how many can say that they have a desk at the Coliseum or in the Sistine chapel?
