Tom Rankin founded the original semi-private walking tour company, Scala Reale, in the 1990s and is now the brains behind Studio Rome Architectural Itineraries. Our focus is on Rome’s architectural riches but in our explorations we occasionally stop for a coffee or culinary tasting, step into an artisan’s shop or a cloister or descend to visit underground ruins.
