For 3 and a half hours she spoke with passion of Roman history and well able to answer all our questions, I would surely give her 5 stars , thank you Eviss for a great day, kind regards Liam and Catheriona.

Wonderful tour in Italian

Our guide, Luca, was very knowledgeable and friendly. Tour was in Italian and the group was small. Definitely recommend it! Only issue was the difference in the meeting point. On the email there was one and then I got a WhatsApp message with a different one. When asked for confirmation and explanation just got the same message. Might be useful to add that the meeting point is the agency to clear up any questions
