Danila was prepared and very informative. She had good knowledge of Etruscan history and local knowledge and history of the area. Danila was engaging, asking about Canada and telling us a little about herself. The driver was punctual on picking us up and getting us around.

Danila is a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. Her choice of areas to show us in Viterbo and Civita were very interesting and aligned well with our interests in archaeology and history. Great choice for the mid-tour restaurant. Accommodated our pace even though that made the tour go over her expected time. Overall a rich and engrossing experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. Your satisfaction is mine too. Danila
Maureen GlassUnited States
Danila was a fabulous tour guide and very knowledgeable about the area. We arrived in the port of civitavecchi Italy and she met us with a Mercedes van and a driver ( for a group of 4 people) she is a licensed guide and had a wealth of knowledge about the history of the area, the Romans, the Etruscans and the local area as well. She was very accommodating to us and would not hesitate to recommend her and use her again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Maureen for visiting my land with me. I'm really happy that you enjoyed my tour. Danila
Patricia VoliniUnited States
We thoroughly enjoyed our exploration of the Etruscan necropoli with Danila. She is very knowledgeable about the subject matter and brought along a book with additional photos to illustrate her points. Her English is excellent and she is very personable and enjoyable to be with. When she found out that the Etruscan museum in Tarquinia would be closed for an extension of the Easter holiday, she came up with an interesting plan to tour the medieval town of Tarquinia as a replacement.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Patricia and thank you for your positive comments about the tour. Regarding the Euphronio Krater I've been surprised by what you've said about its absence at Cerveteri museum and so I've immediately called the museum that assured me it had never moved to other places since 2015. So I was wondering if you visited the second floor, where the krater is exposed, and go to this link to verify this is the vase you loved .https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euphronios_Krater. Let me know, please.Thanks Danila
Heidi CanarelliHenderson, NV, United States
We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Danila. She was knowledgeable, entertaining and very professional in her approach. She quickly adjusted her pace of information to what she could ascertain we wanted. We toured on a Sunday so several places were closed. She didn't hesitate to adjust and make sure we still had a full and interesting day. She was very friendly and an outstanding guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very muck Heidi!

Danila gave a very good tour of the ancient tombs dated before Christ in Tarquinia and Cerveteri. She also took us to a museum to see many artifacts. We had lunch at a lovely restaurant near the museum and ate outside. Danila joined us which was vey nice! She was very enthusiastic and knowledgable, knowing her subject well. She had a driver so she could concentrate on her tour information.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Diane!

DON'T MISS THIS ONE This tour was amazing from start to finish I can't fault it. You will be amazed by Civita di Bagnoregio what a wonderful place. Lunch was another highlight. Danila was an excellent guide you will enjoy your day immensely.

My husband and I went on a full day excursion with Danila to Vitterbo and Caprarola, Italy. It was fantastic. She picked us up in Rome and drove us the hour and a half to our first stop, offering historic insight along with contemporary commentary on what we were driving by. She was very knowledgeable, engaging, and entertaining. She knew we were interested in churches, so she adapted the tour just for our interests. What a gift to have a day out of the city and to have it with such a great guide! Jon

Wonderful trip with an enthusiastic guide who really knows the area. The Farnese Palace is a stunning building with an excellent series of frescoed rooms, beautiful views and a set of magnificent gardens. Viterbo is a beautiful town with a town hall and other building built of the characteristic stone of the area. The entire trip was well-planned and enjoyable--a nice day out from Rome.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Richard!

We had a great tour from Danila! We told her we did not want a boring history tour, we wanted a fun food and wine day....boy did she deliver. We had a great time tasting cheese, wine, olive oil, meats, and I think she might have even shared some interesting history! Great Day Danila!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Bill!
