Our guide was Martina and it was a real treat of history, art and culture of ancient Rome! We were led through the museum and shown examples that left a memorable imprint on our memory. Martina knew everything about everything and yet managed to present the information in a very engaging and stimulating manner, and left us not overwhelmed by mountains of informations, but excited about wanting to learn more about the history and culture of Rome. Thank you Martina! It was unforgettable! Next time we are in Rome we will be asking for your guidance in this city of our passion! Best wishes, Bob and Margarita.
