Marisa is an archaeologist, and so had much more information to offer. We had visited Italy several years ago and wanted something more than the Colosseum and Pantheon, as wonderful as these are. Marisa took us to the original senate site, where Caesar was killed. Then Palatine Hill, the Forum, Caracalla's Bath and to a wonderful site, an old housing site which is now under a massive church. She was lovely, spoke excellent English, engaging and we had a wonderful day. Absolutely recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Dean for the nice comment! Thanks even for having chosen to go off the beaten path to discover Rome with me. This city is more than the Colosseum. It's lovely to explore sites as the Caracalla Baths, with no groups around! Marisa
