Valentina fills every minute with 120 seconds worth of wonderful information. She doesn't waste a moment, her eyes never miss a detail, and she brought Ostia Antica to life for us. We saw and understood much that we could never have found without her, and could really "see" life in this lovely city at that time. My 17 year old history loving granddaughter thinks Valentina is an absolute legend! We all think she's a 10-Star Tour Guide! Take this tour if you love Rome's history.

Valentina provided an amazing behind the scenes tour of Ostia Antica. We would have never known what we were looking at and the importance of if all without her. She blended the architectural design with the importance of this merchant city with the history of why this city was so critical to Rome. She is simply fantastic!!

Valentina is a fantastic guide and our tour of Ostia Antica with her was a highlight of our trip! She is so incredibly knowledgeable and great at describing things, and she answered all of the questions we had with enthusiasm. She showed us some treasures we would have never found on our own. Plus she put everything into context giving us a much better understanding of what we were looking at. We loved learning about how life really was for the ancient Romans. Thank you Valentina!

Valentina is a fantastic guide. I very much enjoyed my tour of Ostia Antica and learned a great deal about the styles of Roman architecture and construction. Ostia Antica is a great place to tour, it is not so crowded as more common sites. Yet it has great examples to learn from. Valentina helped me to understand how archeologists Lear about the lives of the people. She taught me a little about thinking like an archeologist. Her enthusiasm draws one in and makes for a very, very good tour. Grazie mille!

We've visited Italy many times and Valentina Santoro's tour of Ostia Antica was probably my favorite tourist day ever. She was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and accommodating. Thank you!

This was our 2nd outing with Valentina. We wanted to use her because of her archaeological background and weren't disappointed!! Valentina is very passionate and knowledgeable about Ostia Antica - a truly amazing place!! In taking us around the ancient city, she made us feel we were there, 2000 years ago walking those streets! You could feel her passion and her desire to educate us about Rome's ancient port city. Valentina has to be one of their best guides - recommend her highly!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Graham, just a big GRAZIE for your reviews and message! I hope to see you again to talk about bricks, acquaeducts and Roman history! Thank you again!
