Abbiamo passeggiato con il nostro accompagnatore privato Francesco tra Colosseo, Fori romani, piazza Michelangelo, Pantheon e le splendide peculiarità di Roma. Guida appassionata e competente,ma anche simpatica, ha reso la visita dinamica e interessante, saremo stati ad ascoltarlo per ore! Non esiteremo a ricontattarlo in caso ritornassimo a Roma per conoscere a storia del resto della città!
