Silvia has been a great guide for us. In the booking process she has been extremely communicative and helpful for arranging our transfer from Ancona Airport to San Marino. She awaited us 'spot on' at the agreed place and time. Slowly but surely we started mounting beautiful San Marino, while learning about this great 'micro state'. In addition she gave us valuable tips for the remainder of our trip (Bologna, Venezia, Verona, Milano). I would strongly recommend Silvia.
