The tour with Dimitri was very educational, we learned about the architecture, history and legends. It was a lot of fun!!! He gave us different recommendations at the end of the tour like best gelateria, nice neighborhoods, good exhibitions, etc. We had time to follow the recommendations and were very happy about it!!! Thanks!!!

Eddy our guide was very nice and interesting, unfortunately we only had 1h30 of visit instead of 3h because our visit started at 2:30 p.m. and the forum closes at 4:30 p.m.! We would have appreciated that these time constraints were anticipated by the agency.
