Giuseppe was absolutely fabulous!! We wanted a guided tour of the most beautiful fountains and the history behind them. He knew everything and exactly where to go. Giuseppe was incredibly patient as we poked around the little shops with our children and bought souvenirs. Our kids loved him and were so sad to say goodbye. Thank you Giuseppe for two amazing days in Rome!!!
