Livia obtained a degree in Archaeology at the Sapienza University of Rome and has a Master's degree in the History and Conservation of Cultural Heritage from the University of Roma Tre. Her main field of interest is ancient Roman topography and early Christian architecture; however, she is an accomplished scholar whose teaching ability extends to the Renaissance and Baroque Rome. As a native Roman, Livia is very enthusiastic in sharing the deep love and knowledge she has for her hometown with clients.
"Though we've seen the Vatican Museums, Livia Galante introduced us to far more of the treasures within the Museums.Most helpful to travelers would be the map she shared of the various sites of art-historical interest. Her selection of works and comments were - as usual - brilliant and inspiring to travelers on foot and in armchairs. She's the best!"

"Ms. Galante gave a highlights tour within a beautifully-organized framework of spatial organization of the sprawling galleries. It was not merely highlights, but the stories of selected works; narratives within the artwork, and the artists too. It really enhancing understanding beyond what the eye can absorb."
– Mark S., viewing from Tucson, AZ
