Our guide was a highly intelligent, well educated lady who shared an incredible amount of history about the first 200 years in the early Christian church. She was well spoken, witty, and truthful about how some of it is educated guesswork. We learned about the art, the culture, the architecture, and so much more in the few hours that we were with her. We were in Italy for 10 days and she was by far the best tour guide of them all. She went well above and beyond to give us a thorough and truly wonderful tour that was the highlight of our trip. We felt bad because we did not have enough euros on hand to give her a very large tip, which she definitely had earned. Please plan ahead and make sure you tip her well (although tipping is not required).

Great moment, unusual places that you can't find in the guides. Thank you very much for this excellent visit and in perfect French. I highly recommend :)
