Paolo, our tour guide, was phenomenal!!! His knowledge of the path, the land and his own personal experience really added to our experience. The duration breezed through and we got some incredible shots while learning of the history. Following the end, we visited his brother’s restaurant, il Ritrovo, and had the most amazing pasta. A must!

Absolutely AMAZING! Our guide Paplo was out of this world, it was just my husband and I and the tour was so informative. A very personalized experience! I recommend everyone do this tour, the sights were absolutely breathtaking! 10/10.
