This tour was the high point (literally) of my tour of Italy! Ivonne is a wonderful guide and explained in detail the history of St. Peter's Church and surrounding area, before we began our trek up the mountain. The views from the scenic look outs were breathtaking and well worth the hike. Ivonne has an impressive knowledge of the region and explained so much of the area and culture on our drive. I would highly recommend this excursion to anyone. Ivonne is a fabulous guide!
