What a wonderful tour! Giovanna had a wonderful grasp of the historical background of the city - and brought so many of the sites to life as a result. She met us at our hotel as promised and provided terrific background of the city. She exceeded our agreed upon time by thirty minutes (we asked a lot of questions) without complaint. if possible, do this tour "first thing" and then you can return to the sites and museums that interest you after. Thank you Giovanna!
