Having taken the Vatican tour with Lucia last September, it was a pleasure to see her again and to take the Ancient Rome tour with her. My grandson had never been to Rome and he was most impressed with all Lucia had to tell us. Claudio is an excellent driver and always found the perfect parking spot. My daughter and grandson took the Vatican tour with Lucia, which I had taken before, and once again, they had a wonderful, informative afternoon. In Florence, we were pleased with the time spent with Mariana, who is also a very knowledgeable, interesting guide. We were interested in local dining and she was most helpful with suggestions.
When friends go to Italy, I always suggest taking a tour with your company and I know of one couple who will be doing so in the fall.
I hope you will pass my comments on to Lucia, Claudio and Mariana.
