Wat je gaat doen

As the great Virginia Woolf once said: “ For most of history, Anonymous was a Woman.” Well, we intend to rid ourselves of that anonymity and celebrate some of the great women from Rome and Italy’s past.
The first (as far as we are aware) Feminist tour of Rome will explore the role of women throughout Rome’s vast history.
We will discuss and celebrate the amazing history of women from the foundations of Rome to the 21st Century. The men who dominate Roman history; Emperors, Cardinals, Popes, probably would not be where they are in history had it not been for some of these women.
Our tour ends a little closer to home, in the 20th Century, with Franca Viola, influential in the 1960s in Italy for refusing a "rehabilitating marriage" after suffering kidnapp and rape. She was one of the first Italian women who had been raped to publicly refuse to marry her rapist. Instead, she and her family successfully appealed to the law to prosecute the rapist. The trial was to have ripple effects throughout Italy.

This tour explores themes of female empowerment and female victories, but also of rape, manipulation, and abuse. It is not suitable for young children. Parental discretion advised.

Waar je naartoe gaat

Starting at the Campidoglio, we start our story of Rome with Rhea Silva, before winding our way through the backstreets of Rome. We will discuss key female figures of ancient Rome such as Octavia and Livia, before moving on to the Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque city. We celebrate the lives of sisters, mothers, wives, mistresses, and prostitutes, bringing their emotions, passions, and narratives to life.

I learned a ton on this tour about important women from Roman history... most of whom I had never heard of, which goes to show exactly why tours like this need to take place, since history lessons tend to erase women and their contributions. The host really knew their stuff and seemed very passionate about the subject matter. I do think there is room for growth as far as the feminism aspect of the tour... I was hoping for the feminism to be a bit more progressive and intersectional. Instead there was a tendency to use sweeping stereotypes about women, there were outdated views and language used about sex work, etc.

Grace is a wonderful story teller with a deep understanding of Roman and Italian history - she answered various questions on the spot, some of them having nothing to do with the women of Rome. I typically do walking or history tours on my own or with an audio guide and am so glad I did this instead: I learned a lot and in the perfect pace. She closer with a timely and accurate depiction of the current state of affairs in Italy which resonates across cultures and times. Don’t think twice and definitely book this tour. Thank you Grace!

It was an amazing look into the Italien traditions, history, of course important female personalities and how they act behind and in their own gain. Grace guided us through the historical facts always with a since of humor and a ironic note but always balanced. She focused on us to promote interacting but we were not forced to interacted. So at the end she has given us many helpful tips and recommendations. She was representing her friend but I hope she will go on with this tour because she is a really good guide! :) So keep going on with it. It is so necessary this time! Greetings from Germany 🇩🇪

If you want to hear fascinating and entertaining stories, this is the tour for you. I learned so much with my guide and am so glad I booked the tour. Some other tours I’ve done have just showed me a few things with a few sentences and been like a curated google maps. This was not that. From wily prostitutes to real life saints, this tour showed how women have been shaping Rome all along.

Today I had Grace as my guide. She was so warm, funny and very knowledgeable all at the same time. It was really interesting to hear about the lives and influences of the women of Rome over the years. I have done other tours in Rome but today I heard many stories I’ve never heard before. Grace was very thoughtful and accommodating to my needs. I absolutely recommend this tour

It was a really great tour. Grace had so much knowledge and passion about the topic and it was fun to experience Rome in a slightly different way and bring together several different pieces of Roman history.
