An excellent tour guide, highly knowledgeable in history and archeology. The tour it was difficult because we wanted to see such many things- House of Livia, House of Augustus, Imperial Fori, Roman Forum. Houses were impressive because they try to recreate the ancient atmosphere. For us, the tour means rediscover the roots, the ancestors. But anyway this tour definitely worth.

Gianluca was FANTASTIC, such an ambassador for Rome. His knowledge and enthusiasm for for the art of ancient Rome was with out a doubt the highlight of this trip to Europe. We would gladly engage him for anything Rome.

Not worth the money. We probably should have told the guide exactly what we wanted in advance.
