Francesca Casertano calls Rome home. It’s a city she’s had years to explore, study, and share with others. Her personal expertise and interest in archeology and cultural heritage lend her the ultimate insider’s perspective into this ancient city and its many secrets. She holds a master’s degree in archeology, and is excited to share the vast and varied architectural achievements of Rome with Smithsonian travelers.  

What Our Travelers Say

I very much like the educational aspect of Smithsonian Journeys...the knowledge of their Experts and their ability to relate that knowledge to us.
