Excellent Tour

The tour operator was excellent. We skiped the line as promissed and had a great guide Ferdinando. He had an excellent knowledge of history and presented it in a funny way. We also had a disabled person in the group and the tour operator and guide took good care of the person. Can only recommend it!!!
