We met for the last time with Cinzia F, this time in Parma. As before she surprised us with some many "wow" moments in sites in art & history of Parma that we were so amazed. She again demonstrated her ability to convey information in a most entertaining & enlighting way. We were pleasantly surprise about the importance Parma has had to date what it has to offer.

Our group of 4 people really enjoyed our tour "Bologna in Depth " with Cinzia F. She was very friendly and knowledgeable about the Bologna city center. She pointed out many features of the churches and palaces, and revealed several interesting secrets of the buildings. She kept up a pleasant pace for our 3.5 hr tour, and pointed out toilet stops and a refreshing coffee shop. She kindly made a late lunch reservation for us at an osteria (restaurant) that was extremely popular and served up delicious meals

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jon!!

We had such a wonderful time with Cinzia! She literally met us outside our air bnb and she wasted no time getting the tour started. We had a car but Cinzia was willing to get a driver for us if need be. During the drive out to Casa Artusi, Cinzia explained a lot about the Emilia-Romagna area. Chef Carla was fanatic and the lunch even better! We are ready to start trying the recipes from "The Art of Eating Well" and drinking wine from Fattoria Paradiso����

Our tour with Cinzia was simply stellar! She is knowledgeable and an attentive guide. She is very responsive and a well-mannered person. The 5-hour tour of UNESCO sites in Ravenna was so well paced that by the end of the day instead of feeling exhausted we were rather inspired and satisfied. In addition, we would like to stress that we were impressed with her English skills, versatile vocabulary, and clear pronunciation. All in all, a ten-star tour!!! Thank you Cinzia! David and Natalia

We just returned from two weeks in Italy, and our day in Ravenna was a highlight. Took the train from Bologna for a half day outing with Cinzia and couldn't have been happier. This isn't a standard scripted tour of "must see" locations. Cinzia has a wealth of knowledge about art, history, and religion and can engage at all levels. The stories and insight that she shared enhanced our whole trip!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jill ! Really too kind! It was such a great pleasure to meet you

Cinzia F. Is a very knowledgeable guide with a super program: a lot of art and architectural facts, some tasting of the sweet local products, another very rich history and finally an aperitif(=local wine, cheese and charcuterie). She explained the mosaics almost picture for picture without being boring! We had a lovely afternoon and recommend this guide.

Our tour with Cinzia was superlative in every way. She is extremely knowledgable, she is lively and she cares very much about what we wanted to see and do. My husband and I have art backgrounds and we hired Cinzia to help us orient the various sights historically and also to provide information about mosaic techniques and symbolism used in the artworks. She also provided a lot of historical information about Ravenna from prehistory through the present. We spent 3 hours with her and it was priceless.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much ! I loved time with you. I am very looking forward to meeting you again soon . A big hug!

Cinzia was the perfect guide for our 3-hour tour of Ravenna. She gave my husband and me a clear resume of the history and highlights of the city's development, supplemented by detailed explanations of the amazing mosaics in each of the main monuments we visited. We also enjoyed her numerous anecdotes that made the city's historical personae really come alive. We highly recommend this very pleasant and extremely knowledgeable guide.

Cinzia is is a fine source of information about the art, history and culture of the person after the decline of Rome but before the oppression of the dark ages and Ravenna, where she grew up and studied art history, was a crucial element in that period. It is a day well spent. Tempting to do it again.

This tour with Cinzia and Paulo was absolutely wonderful! The highlight of our 10 day Italy trip. They picked us up on time at our hotel and proceeded to give us a great tour both at the Parmigiano-Reggiano and Balsamic factories, as well as when we were in the car. There is so much to learn about that region (art, architecture, etc.) and Cinzia was a perfect guide to explain it to us/her enthusiasm was infectious. Paulo's explanations at both of the factories were intriguing as well. Take this tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Daunia, Paulo and I appreciated your great review (WOW!). Thanks so much !!!!
