Superb day with Mara. A very pleasant guide for a visit in French. Visit of Hadrian's Villa and Villa Este of very high quality, clear and fun explanations, time flies and Mara's explanations are of great help and allow us to immerse ourselves in the heart of vestiges breathtaking. Private or small group visit, which is a real plus for a visit like this one. Lunch (included in the visit) at noon takes place in a typical and good quality restaurant. Mara manages to share her passion and bring the legend to life. The tour is carefully orchestrated and very well managed. A great day! well done

This was an excellent tour. Our guide Alfredo was very engaging and knowledgeable about Roman history and the archeological details of Hadrian’s Villa. He was wonderfully informative about Villa d’Este, directing us to details of the amazing engineering behind the fountains as well as plantings and best views. His enthusiasm for his subject matter was contagious. This was our favorite outing during our visit to Rome.
