A Recent Review of this tour

Elisabetta gave an excellent tour. Very informative with a pleasant manner. We had 3 children with us and she made it interesting for them as well as the adults. She was also very good at sensing when we all needed a break for a gelato or cappuccino or something a little sweet for a pick me up! I would certainly choose Elisabetta as a guide when I return to the area.
