We booked the Borghese family tour and it was absolutely fantastic. My 10 year old boy who like most 10 year olds has a limited attention span was absorbed and engaged by Maria. She was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. He and Maria buddied up and we trailed behind with smiles on our faces. I would recommend this service to anyone who wants a taste of what the Borghese museum has to offer. I have used Nancy Aiello before and have always been very pleased.
It was a fantastic tour. My family and I really enjoyed it. See below for more comments. Our overall experience with Nancy Aiello Tours was excellent. Lornia was fantastic. She gave us a wonderful perspective on the Roman landmarks and the history behind them too. My son, Christopher (12) mentioned that the tour was the highlight of the vacation to Rome. It was fantastic. The tour allowed us to see so much of Roman that we hadn’t had a chance to see in a very short time – only 3 hours. The keyhole, the fountain, the outside of St John Lateran Church (it was closed, unfortunately), and of course the Colosseum, Piazza Navona, and many other locations that we drove past. Both Lornia and our driver were very flexible, and asked us what we wanted to do and see so it worked out perfectly. The tour was our last scheduled activity in Rome. We flew home Friday afternoon, so we closed out the vacation on a high note. I would absolutely recommend you to my family and friends.
