A visit to the city of Siena and the Basilica of Our Lady of the Assumption with a guide named Mariangela, passionate about the history of her city. We had been incredibly lucky to be only two for this wonderful experience steeped in history. A big THANK YOU Mariangela for this memorable sharing. To do without hesitation.

Claudia was an amazing host! Funny, smart, knowledgeable, and passionate about Siena. My wife and I are in our 70s and struggled a bit with the heat (84 F) and the stairs. Claudia took excellent care of us! Honestly, she could not have been better. It was a great day.
