We loved our tour with Valentina who was widely knowledgeable about art, history, architecture and politics. She consistently took our needs and interests into account—when we needed to sit, when we wanted to go into greater depth on a subject, when to stop for a cannolo made in a cloister. She is warm, smart and has impeccable English. Perfetto!
