Rome through the eyes of Gogol: a sightseeing tour with Signore Nicolo

Rome sightseeing tour by Nikolai Gogol! Look at the Eternal City through the eyes of the great Russian writer

What's tour about

“You fall in love with Rome very slowly, little by little — and for the rest of your life”, wrote Nikolai Gogol.

Signore Nicolo lived here for more than four years, and every corner of the Eternal City was familiar to him. He willingly led tours around Rome, and with delight told his friends about the ancient legends and mysteries of the history of the Italian capital.

Today Gogol will guide you along Rome! Under the strict guidance of Nikolai Vasilyevich, you will walk through the Roman streets, find out where the Dead Souls were written, and drink a cup of coffee in a Greek cafe.

Welcome to the city that Gogol loved with all his heart.
