EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION

VISIT THE BEST, LEAST-VISITED ROME CATACOMBS.

There are miles of ancient Christian Catacombs under Rome but most companies visit the same one. We go the extra distance to visit the best and quietest of the Rome catacombs, the Catacomb of Santa Priscilla. One of Rome's first underground Christian cemeteries (dating back to 150 years before Christianity was legalized), this site has extraordinary ancient frescoes, eerie tunnels and the world's single oldest depiction of the Virgin Mary.

For such a unique and touching experience, we’re not going to hand you off to a guide you don’t know. Instead, our guides are chosen from the elite few who have permission to take you into the depths themselves, so you’ll keep your handpicked Walks of Italy tour guide and your small group of only 15 people or fewer, rather than merging with a group of 20 or 30. Anything bigger, and in the narrow tunnels, you can’t even hear your guide. Forget headsets, they don’t work underground.

WITNESS ROME’S STRANGEST SIGHT – A CRYPT LINED WITH THE BONES OF 4,000 MONKS.

The Roman catacombs are pretty cool but we visit another site that could be even better – the Capuchin bone crypt, a cemetery literally built from bones! The chambers are decorated with the remains of some 4,000 friars. For kids, it’s a fascinating lesson in anatomy and for adults, a moving reminder of what we’ll all become. The message at the end of crypt says it all: “What you are now, we once were. What we are now, you will be.” Strangely enough, the monks didn’t intend the site to be a morbid one – but you’ll learn all about that from your expert guide when you visit one of Rome’s most memorable sights.

STEP BACK IN TIME AT OUR ALTERNATE 'LASAGNE CHURCH'

This tour previously visited Basilica San Clemente but, as the crowds grew, the experience diminished. Today we've found a better 'lasagne church' (so-called for their many layers) with few, if any, tourists. Like Basilica San Clemente, our new spot, the Basilica of San Nicola in Carcere, is a voyage both below ground and back in time, but this basilica is so much more historically important. It was built in the 10th century on the site of three temples dating back to the first century BC, which themselves were at the heart of an Ancient Roman fruit and vegetable market dating to the 4th century BC. Much of the original temples, including their marble columns, were built into the structure of the existing basilica but left exposed, so when you visit today you can literally descend through the levels of time.

Basilica San Clemente may boasts the opportunity to see a street from the 1st century AD, but in San Nicola in Carcere, your end point is the very center of 4th century BC Rome. To get there, you'll descend through a crypt used in the 12th century for exorcisms, passing stacks of ancient human bone fragments. As you walk your guide will tell you stories from the basilica's own fascinating history, including its stint as a Medieval prison. And best of all, Walks of Italy groups will likely have the place to themselves.

With comfortable, air-conditioned transport throughout, you won’t have to worry about coordinating metros, buses and private transport from one site to the next. On rare occasions, two groups may share a bus but at all the sites, small group sizes of only 15 people or fewer mean you can ask all the questions you can think of (great when traveling with curious kids). Our guides are handpicked not just for their knowledge, but also their enthusiasm and engagement, so they’ll be happy to answer any questions you can throw at them.

Take a walk with us as we peel back the many layers of Rome, uncovering secret stories of Christian persecution, strange religious practices and the multi-layered history of Rome.

Very good guide, full of information
Another great tour, interesting content and history . Wonderful guide!
Sometimes the guide put things a bit too simplified. As a European with a Latin education we are used to go more in detail. But in general a very good tour with a well informed guide. We would certainly recommend this tour.
A very knowledgable, lively & fun guide who brought the tour alive & made it so much more enjoyable.
Amy was very enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable. You could tell that she was genuinely interested in the content of the tour.

Melanie was knowledgable and her passion for the history was very evident. She kept us engaged the entire tour. Really enjoyed Melanie.

Very good Guide, great content, very nice tour
Our tour guide, Andrea, was great - very knowledgeable and clearly passionate about the subject matter.
Amy's enthusiasm, great story telling and appropriate sense of humor were the perfect balance combined with her deep knowledge of the history. The tour flew by and we learned so much while having fun. She's top notch after 5 wks of tours this trip in Europe...don't miss her!
We greatly enjoyed the tour. We saw things I don't think we would have found on our own. The van made the moment about easy. Our guide was enthusiastic with native English. A fantastic tour.
Andreas was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, funny, entertaining. Going on this tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Rome. We learned a lot, and the details of the churches and other sites we visited on the tour changed how we viewed other places we visited. A truly outstanding experience!
Kylie was engaging and knew a lot about the 3 areas we visited, Capuchin monastery, catacombs and the Basilica of San Clemente. We learned a lot and saw a lot that we were not expecting.
Lots of background and history given by guide. Excellent
Such a fantastic tour! So unique and really, incredibly interesting. Georgia was so knowledgable and she added such incredibly little nuggets that my husband and I just loved. We were so happy we took this tour!
Really enjoyed the tour. Fascinating history and very personable and knowledgable tour guide! Would recommend to my friends
One suggestion: in your promotional material you should recommend that clients bring their own form of lighting e.g. IPhone, hand-held flashlight or head-mounted light. Other than that, thanks for a memorable experience
Andrea was an amazing tour guide, & I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and learnt so much thanks to him. He clearly showed his passion for and knowledge of Roman history and I'm grateful to Andrea for sharing that with us.
The tour was great and so was our tour guide, Georgia. Her expertise and humor was perfect. Although our group was not large, people in the back are cut off from audio when going single file through the catacombs. So I stayed close to the guide.
She was awesome
The brilliant guide made the tour fascinating. We really enjoyed the visit. Would recommend & have already. *****
Georgia was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic, with plenty of humour thrown in for good measure! Myself and my friend both loved this tour. Well done, Georgia.
The guide was first class
The tour was great and Andrea was a superb guide. This was the first of three tours we've taken on this trip, and he was by far the best.
This was the best tour we took our entire trip! The sites were fascinating and Georgia was full of all kinds of information and more than happy to share her knowledge! Thank you, Georgia!!
The tour guide was a man whose name started with a T? I can't remember. He was great, very knowledgable and passionate about the sights we visited. I liked the sites as well and the van taking us to each site which made it easier. Very nice overall.
Georgia was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable and provided an engaging and informative tour. The two locations were fascinating, and they were made even better by being able to visit them after hours!
Our guide and tour was terrific, wish I could recall her name.
Great guide and great tour - guide was well informed and friendly; got my kids involved and interested
It was awesome and our guide was incredibly knowledgeable!

Fntasic experience. Our guide was wonderful and so knowledgable . Loved it
Excellent from start to finish, guides were excellent.
One of the highlights of our trip was this tour. We can't say enough great things about our guide Gio!! Even in the small spaces, which she warned us about ahead of time, she made us feel comfortable and she presented the information in an interesting way.
Fantastic tour and the guide was wonderful.
Passionate and knowledgeable guide. Totally recommend the tour!
Absolutely fascinating tour. The guide was extremely professional and knowledgeable.
I had a great tour. Andre was very knowledgable about the full history and made sure everyone knew how to get home safely once back at meeting point. One of my highlights of Roma. Thanks for the great night
Very interesting tour! We enjoyed our guide very much.
I think that due to the nature of the catacombs the tour numbers should be limited as it was difficult to see what the guide was looking at due to the restrictive nature of the catacombs. Other than that it was excellent.
Shannon was an excellent guide. Highly recommend her and the tour.
Please see my extensive review under TripAdvisor under Hosta_La_Vista
Shannon was awesome! We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Very professional and I'll be recommending you to friends who will be traveling to Italy. Btw you were recommended to us by a friend who had used you. :) many thanks and keep up the good work!
Very good tour an knowledgeable guide!
Again, Andrea was very knowledgeable and obviously passionate about history and archaeology. We loved the tour and would definitely recommend walks of Italy.
We had a very informative and enjoyable tour. Our guide was excellent and clearly very passionate about his subject. Warmest Regards Mike and Margaret Spratt
Guide was excellent.
It was a fantastic tour led by an informed and educated guide. We loved her enthrusiasm and energy! We are telling everyone to go to this tour!
Our tour guide was phenomenal. (I want to say Gia but apoligize for not being sure) She was remarkably informative, funny and great at dealing with crowds at the sites. I did 10 guided tours in my time in Europe this summer and she was far and away the best guide.
Highlight of our trip, thank you!
Quite obvious our guide has a genuine passion for history, very engaging in delivery of information, highly recommended.
Very knowledgable and organized. The entire family enjoyed the tour!

Great tour and *Big Mama G* is a great guide. Very enjoyable.

Good experience and excellent tour guide, it made the walk and places very enjoyable with her knowledge and explanations. Interesting and I would say fair for the price.
We had a really good time! It wasn't too crowded, and our guide was really knowledgeable, which was cool.
Our guide 'Tango' was one of the best we had during our stay in Rome. He made it an incredible tour.

Amy was great! We learned so much from her. She kept everyone engaged and made it fun.
Jos gave a detailed commentary with some humorous asides throughout the tour, of which the visit to one of the lesser known of Rome's catacombs was for us the clear highlight: an experience helped by Jos's descriptions.
Awesome tour and our guide was funny too!

Gio was a fantastic guide. She made the history enjoyable and entertaining. I would love to take another tour with her the next time we are in Rome.
Absolutely wonderful guide who brought to life the history of the crypts and catacombs and the different levels of the city of Rome
Such a great tour! Small group made the whole experience very intimate and personal. On our way to the last site there were some road blockages but our driver and tour guide kept us informed and handled the issue efficiently and professionally.
Great tour, but Jos made it even better. He is a great guy with an easy to understand English and he is very good to tell about what we are seeing. Give him a salary raise - he deserves it.
Gio was a fantastic guide. She was incredibly smart, funny, energetic, and kept us interested throughout the entire tour. I would love to take other tours led by her.

Great tour. We both had a great time.
Good trip. Informative and very comfortable!
Elena was informative and entertaining. I especially enjoyed the first stop and the artwork of the Capuchin monks. I high recommend this excursion!
An exceptional experience too. The visit to St. Clements and being drawn into the history of how the lower levels were discovered was fascinating. Again this guide was knowledgeable too. The only draw back was having to walk back to where we began since our hotel was located there.
Superb......Guide was fantastic, so knowledgable, so friendly and so efficient. We have already rated this as 5 star on trip advisor as it was without doubt 'the highlight of the holiday' THANK YOU!!!
Our tour guide was amazing and I absolutely loved the tour. I am completely satisfied and will recommend the Walks company to anyone I know who is traveling to Italy, New York, or Turkey.
Gio was a lovely and entertaining tour guide who answered all my questions patiently. Thank you for a great afternoon!
Gio was fantastic Thank you for an information-packed fun day!

Extremely interesting, and the guide was very informative, in a very enjoyable way. The San Clemente tour and the Priscilla Catacomb tour were particularly fascinating, like visiting other worlds. I would happily do the tour again if ever I am in Rome again.
Peter was great - very well prepared and engaging. Would recommend him and this tour to others,
This tour was extremely fun, interesting, and educational. I highly recommend it to my friends, and I am glad that I went on it.
Very interesting and at some points breathtaking tour! Gio was excellent guide and very nice character too! I definitely recommend this tour.

Andrea had excellent knowledge and was most accommodating when the traffic jam put us overtime. Many thanks for helping us to find the best metro stop. A great afternoon!
We really enjoyed the tour with Andrea!! :)
Really good tour, the guide was really funny, engaging and knowledgeable
I loved the information the guide had to offer. Even though our trip to the actual catacombs got cut short because of the Vice President's visit he was able to quickly show us the highlights.
Amy was such a gem! We had such a great time on this informative and super awesome tour. Amy was fun, enthusiastic and incredibly intelligent. Highly recommend this tour and ask for Amy!!! You won't be sorry!
Andrea was outstanding! He made this tour one of the best ever for our family.
Our guide was excellent - very informed and very friendly. The sights themselves were fascinating, particularly St Clemente.
Fantastic tour with a great guide!
I was very impressed with the guides in all of our Walks of Italy tours. Their robust knowledge was matched by a love of Rome & it's history, which they were eager to share. I will recommend Walks of Rome in the future.
Unfortunately, I have forgotten the name of our guide. She did an excellent job.
Thought Andrea was very knowledgeable & personable which made the tour very educational & entertaining. Well done!!
This was an incredible tour, our guide incorporated religion, history, and art - he kept everyone's attention and managed a large crowd, and also helped us navigate around other tour groups.
Andrea was on time at the meeting point. Tour was a little creepy, but definitely worth the while. Andrea had great charm and made the experience.
Was a wonderful trip and the guide was awesome
This was the highlight of our trip! Very interesting and excellent tour guide.
Andreea was brilliant Really excellent knowledgeable guide
excellent!!! Amy was phenominal and gave such an insight into Rome and its history
Amy is great, loads of fun and highly informative!
Absolutely fabulous! An excellently constructed and managed tour, great value for money. The guide was enthusiastic and exceptionally knowledgeable, as well as having a good sense of humour! We will be using Walks of Italy tours on our next visit! Thank you so much.
excellent, thorough, passionate guide.
We loved the tour, and wish we could do it again. The guide, whose name we forget (I'm sorry) was amazing. So impressive. She was originally Australian if that helps. Such passion, knowledge.
Peter was an excellent guide! Very knowledgeable and engaging. We thoroughly loved this tour and would recommend to all of our friends and family.
Once more you impressed us! Cecylia was wonderful and again you provided a guide who was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. This tour gave us a very unique look at a completely different view of Rome.
Just great--guide very knowledgeable and gave a great tour
Peter was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. My teen-age grandsons loved this tour...
Gil had lots of information to share and was wonderful. Great tour.
Great tour! Creepy bones, bones on the ceiling, bones on the floor, bones in the wall and bones on the door. You should not miss this tour to see a variety of catacombs. The guide was fun and informational.
Me and my fiance really liked the tour.. Unfortunately, we started a bit late that day... Reason why we werent able to finish on time around 5:30pm.. But it was really good! One should not miss when you are in Rome.
Our tour guide Cecelia was absolutely excellent!!!
The tour was excellent as was Amy, I am telling everyone how great it was - was a highlight of our holiday
Another excellent tour. Fantastic guide , extremely knowledgeable and also remembered everyones name which made everyone feel included. Definitely recommend this tour.
Amy is very professional.
Amy is very professional.
Amy was an excellent guide and she explained everything very clearly. The 3 sites that we visited were most interesting. We especially loved the Capuchin Bone Crypt.
Jo was excellent and informative.
Our guide was awesome. The last part of the tour was a little long. But we really enjoyed it and would recommend this tour and Walks of Italy in the future.
Outstanding tour. Amy was terrific, extremely informative and very hospitable. There wasn't a question that she couldn't answer. We covered a large amount of territory but never felt rushed. Will definitely use Walks of Italy the next time we go to Italy. Thank you!
Our tour guide, Joseph was knowledgeable, entertaining and provided us with a superior tour. We would definitely recommend Walks of Italy over the other two agencies we used for other tours.
Gia was the best tour guide we had throughout all our tours. She was fun, energetic, and knew a lot about the places we visited. I enjoyed how she engaged the group, made us laugh, and overall created a very memorable experience.
Great guide
Excellent tour! Very friendly guide, funny and entertaining. And we saw some amazing sites including the crypt within the city of Rome and the catacombs on the outskirts of the city.
Another winner
It was interesting and the guide was engaging.
Our guide was Andrea. He was very knowledgable and friendly. Oh yes, a good sense of humour too ! He was also happy to answer our many questions too.
Excellent, enthusiastic guide, very well informed. We enjoyed the tour very much. Thank you Jos..
A weird but fascinating tour of the After Life. Three very different sites brought to life (!) by Andrea. He was an excellent guide, with a good sense of humour - full of interesting asides and anecdotes.
We really enjoyed our tour of the catacombs and crypts. Joseph was an excellent tour guide that was passionate about his job and very knowledgable. We loved every aspect of this tour and would definitely recommend it as something different and unique to see in Rome.
Both my wife and I enjoyed this tour very much and would thoroughly recommend both the tour and our very entertaining and knowledgable guide.
Andrea was an awesome tour guide! I loved his passion for his work and the subject and the way he interacted with the group and told us the story of the crypt. I recommend him to anyone going on this tour!
Amy was brilliant - very knowledgeable and entertaining!
Our guide Adreas made the tour enjoyable and was very well informed and passionate, which enriched our overall experience of Rome.
Andrea was knowledgable, enthusiastic, good humoured, and considerate. We loved this tour!
Great tour, with an extremely knowledgeable guide. Very enjoyable.
Andea was fantastic. He gave good explanation, has a great sense of humor, and was polite.
This was an excellent tour and an excel lent value. You exceeded my expectations.
Rosa was amazing. A wealth of information.
Andreas was wonderful, chock full of interesting information. We could feel his passion for what he does, so great to know. Would definitely recommend him!
The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. However, we had a really hard time hearing him during the tour. He would not wait for the rest of the tour group to catch up before he would start speaking about some important historical event or information regarding the catacombs.
The guide was amazing, Gioladys is really great, so full of knowledge of culture and history. The places and the time were just perfect to continue to other places of the city ot just to have some drinks. Thanks for the experience
tour was VERY interesting. this was my 3rd visit to Rome but it was the first visit to catacombs. We enjoyed the entire trip. The enthusiasm of our guide made it all come together. She was excellent. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon.
Excellent tour. Good small group size. Very knowledgeable guide, informative and relaxed. Would definitely recommend
It was a fascinating tour, the guide was really informative and passionate, great to learn from him about the history of the catacombs and San Clementine. The drive from place to place on the tour made it a very well organised tour experience.
Andrea was really a delightful guide. He was very well informed and funny and made the tour so interesting and a great way to spend my birthday!
Jos was awesome!!! The places we went to were incredibly interesting and Jos was a great guide. He was by far the best tour guide we had in Italy, and we took 7 tours in total during our stay in the country.
Very interesting. Giving us deeper insights into roman history. Amy was an extraordinary nice and competent guide.
Who knew this existed? My family and I loved this tour and Rosa was absolutely fantastic. We felt like we got the inside scoop into the depths of Rome.
The guide loved what he did and enjoy sharing his knowledge of the areas. What more can I say. ALL tours were great and truly enjoyed the experience
Fascinating tour with excellent guide who had a great sense of humour and added interesting and amusing anecdotes. Would highly recommend it.
Our guide was lovely very proud to be Roman and of her City and rightly so. She was extremely knowledgeable and because of the small group size it was easy to ask questions and actually see what she talking about. I thoroughly recommend using this company.
We enjoyed the tour immensely. Our guide (I believe her name was Marta) was very knowledgeable and really made such old history come to life.
Guide was outstanding!
Peter was terrific.
A very enjoyable tour, well organised and informative. The guide was excellent.
Peter was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable about all aspects of Roman history we would definitely recommend Walks of Italy
Again, well educated guide and very friendly. Could not have asked for better. You guys are dialed all the way around. Bob
Funny. Kind and courteous
Imagine our thrill when we saw Amy again. We were very happy that we were put in her group. She truly loves what she does and makes it very personable. We would have loved to have had her as our private guide our whole week.
What a amazing tour guide ! Explained lots in detail !
Guide was informative. We liked the catacombs the most. The others were good too! The meeting point might have been nicer by the shady trees at the first site. Special kudos to the guide for helping us get on the right bus!
Peter was great and the tour was really interesting.
Andreas was very knowledgeable and informative. He explained things well and put things in context well.
Tongi, was great. He was knowledgeable, interesting and had a good since of humor. My daughters and I enjoyed the tour immensely!
Loved the tour! I learned a lot and was fascinated with the Bones. Will recommend it to those who use tripadvisor.
Our tour guide was really brilliant, very knowledgeable, and he obviously enjoyed giving this tour. We enjoyed his wit. My 70 year old parents went on this tour as well, and the tour guide was very considerate of their limits and slower speed. Thank you!
Our guide was terrific and so informed. Was on the tour with my parents who were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary and they really enjoyed this tour because of the guide.
The sites were amazing and interesting. Peter was very knowledgeable but received mixed reviews from our group, as he was very "Catholic heavy" and his presentation seemed to lose steam by the third stop.
Wonderful guided tour of three very interesting historical sites in Rome. Especially nice during the heat of July when we visited the catacombs and were able to cool off nicely. Andrea was an excellent well informed guide! I highly recommend this tour.
Great, informative tour that was packed with interesting information. Loved it!
Andrea was great!
Tour was very interesting, and our guide was incredible! She had perfect control over the crowd and was really funny - we enjoyed it very much!
Excellent tour - great to see a different side of Rome. Our guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. All in all it was money well spent.
Tour Guide was fantastic
We had a great visit. The catacomb tour was really interesting. It was a good combination of sites. I found the first site, the actual catacomb most interesting while the crypt was good for the spookyness!!
Awesome tour, we can not praise our experience enough
Marta did a great job and was very knowledgeable; she did a good job with our 5 year old. Thanks.
Our friends were looking to book Walks of Istanbul in November, is this something they book with you? We truly enjoyed the tour, Andrea was a fantastic guide & VERY knowledgable!
Amy was a fabulous guide! She had lots of great stories at every place we visited, which made the tour really interesting! Everything was well organised and the air-conditioned mini bus was wonderful on the hot day!
The tour was fantastic and Andrea was one of the best tour guides we have had. His knowledge and explanation of the history of what we were seeing was extraordinary and all of our teenagers were impressed with Andrea and the tour as well.
Really good
The tour guide was splendid and everyone had a great encounter with the crypts. Amy was warm and brought a special joy to such a somber subject. It was one of my favorite moments in Rome.
Extremely knowledgable guide.
Extremely knowledgable guide.
Andrea, our guide, was wonderful - so much information, so interesting! We would recommend this tour to anyone in Rome - no question. It was a real highlight!
Andrea was a great guide, very personable and accommodating to our requests. Very knowledgeable.
Fantastic tour led by a fantastic Guide. Sorry I can't remember her name but she was so enthusiastic, knowledgable and entertaining.
Tour guide was excellent! She was knowledgeable and interesting. She made it lots of fun. We saw a great deal in a short time, thanks to the minibus and good planning. Great tour. We had several twenty-somethings in our group and all enjoyed it, as well as their parents. Highly recommended.
My daughter Lynn and I enjoyed our tour with Andreas as our guide. Andreas was very knowledgable and clearly loved the sites - his excitement was infectious.
This was our first time for this "Walks Of Italy" tour and we are very glad we did it! Peter did an excellent job as our tour guide! He is a "fountain of knowledge!" We would highly recommend this tour!
It was a really interesting tour and Marta was very informative- I would have liked time at the first venue to purchase a postcard but we had to rush off to catch the bus.
Great guide and tour.
The guide talked too fast some times.
Better than expected! Another great tour guide.
Marta was a terrific guide we very much enjoyed our time with her!
Fun tour, guide was great
Amy was a lot of fun. Her talks were really informative.
Our first Walks Tour & would highly recommend Marta for her Crypts ... commentary!
Just a neat and creepy experience.
Marta was fantastic! She provided us with all the information we needed on the tour and did so with the most positive and engaging personality.
We had a really good time, I can't recall her name, but once again English was great, very much fun, would highly recommend her
Very passionate and knowledgeable guide - really enjoyable your.
Amazing guide, incredibly knowledgeable, excellent sites visited.
Andrea was a great knowledgable guide who really made the tour more interesting. He was full of energy, and a really nice guy. Would recommend to others.
Julia was our guide. She was knowledgable, an excellent communicator, and totally engaged in the tour. We would request her for future yours.
Very satisfied with the tour and the guide.
Great fun and unusual tour.
Peter was very knowledgeable and easy to understand. He was so good that when we saw he was one of the guides at the Vatican 2 days later, we asked to be in his group.
I really enjoyed this tour and found it very interesting and informative. A lot of information was given and I could see the guide knew her stuff. She was very friendly and welcoming.
Had a fabulous time!
Our guide was very knowledgeable ... we would never had done this tour on our own and certainly would not have learned all of the interesting facts and history that our guide was able to share. Our kids really enjoyed as well!
Brilliant tour - some amazing places that many tourists don't get to see. Peter was outstanding, full of information and detail, explained in a clear and entertaining way. Again, allfour of us really enjoyed this tour. Great!
Andreas inspired us to learn more. The St Clemon part was fantastic & his passion & knowledge of the subject matter was obvious
Our second time with you on one of your tours and as enjoyable as the first. Would always come back to you.
Just another great tour!
A most interesting and extensive tour with an excellent tour guide. We covered a lot of history and saw some fascinating sites
All of the tours and all of the guides were excellent Thank you
Very informative and throughly enjoyable tour.
Peter was excellent.....very knowledgeable and personable
Excellent !!!
The guide was great - she knew lots of fascinating history, and shared a wonderfully infectious enthusiasm throughout the tour. The tour was my favorite event during a week in Rome, and was as well for my three travel companions.
