We just returned from our week trip to Italy and the 4 days we spent in Rome with your knowledgeable, energetic and fun guide Roberta were fantastic.
I truly believe we saw more in 4 days than most people see in 2 weeks. Roberta made sure we never stood in line for anything – we literally walked into both the Vatican and the Vatican museum. Besides seeing many of the major sites in Rome proper, we also spent a day in Tivoli. Our group of 9 ranged in age from 12 to 69and had a variety of interests and physical abilities.
Roberta made sure that there something each day to appeal to every member of our family. For example, my 69-year-old dad wanted to visit some local open air markets and try restaurants with some true atmosphere; my teenage sons were interested in the more bizarre sites such as the catacombs and the Crypt of the Capuchin. This is just a sampling of what we accomplished in a very few days. We were able to go at a pace that kept the younger members involved, but did not wear out my parents.
For our family, this was a truly memorable experience and the best way to see Rome in a short time.
