We felt very fortunate to have Valentina's insight as an archeological scholar of the area. But not only was she perfectly qualified academically; her enthusiasm was infectious, her English was fine, and her patience with all my questions admirable. I cannot imagine a better tour guide than Valentina.

Valentina was the best guide possible for a Colosseum tour. We wanted a private, in-depth discussion of the history of the building, and we got that and more! She was so excited about the subject that she smiled the whole time. Valentina is a young teacher of archaeology (I think) with lots of passion for the subject. We learned more than I expected in two hours, like the reason the Colosseum exists. She cleared up some misconceptions I had about gladiators. Her students are lucky to have her.

Valentina was fantastic! All 5 people in our group agreed that the tour of the colosseum was the BEST tour of our time in Italy. Valentina's perspective as an archeologist was awesome, the passion that she shared for the amazing structure that the colosseum is/was, was truly inspiring. We all came away with different highlights from the tour, but one consensus, Valentina was great! Thank you Valentina

What an amazing guide. Being an archaeologist herself, it was great to learn about the Colosseo from someone so passionate about it. I would have never known any of the info she provided on my own! The 2.5 hours flew by. Completely worth it.

Valentina's knowledge and enthusiasm was amazing. She was an outstanding resource of information about Rome and it's history. We had a fantastic tour. We will book another with her when we are back again.

Valentina who took us through the Colosseum and other aspects of ancient Rome. She was so vivacious and bubbly! Valentina TRULY loves the history of this beautiful city and it showed through her enthusiasm and big smile! She was our first guide on our first day in Italy for the first time and we couldn't have asked for a better ambassador for the people of Italy! We would definitely tour with Valentina again and refer her to our friends!

Valentina gave us a truly wonderful tour of the Coliseum—it is one of the highlights of our trip. Her depth of knowledge and equanimity in the face of many questions was formidable. We learned so much about the historical context of the Coliseum; she brought it to life for us.

Valentina is very knowledgeable, friendly, and was a perfect tour guide for our family. She answered all our questions and told us things that only an expert archaeologist would know about the Coloseo and life as a gladiator. Tante grazie, Valentina!
