We think Fabio is short for Fabulous. He is knowledgeable & personable - and provides a tour exactly as needed or desired. He can speak to any question and also had a sense of humour while remaining completely professional. He has a passion for Rome and is super experienced. At the risk of him becoming too busy to ever give me a tour again- you need look no further than Fabio for a truly fantastic day!
