Valentina has a wealth of knowledge and was great at answering my numerous questions. To me that's the reason for taking a personal tour; being able to ask all the questions you want. She was personable, had an organised plan but was flexible. My experience was completely positive.

Valentina gave us an amazing tour of the Roman Forum. She brought the ruins alive and showed us how to picture the jumbled ruins as buildings in the days of the Roman Empire. Not only in terms of structure, but in terms of color! Turns out the old Forum was a very colorful place! Her archaeological background (she has even worked on digs at the Forum) allowed her to point out interesting details and helped us understand each era of ancient Rome and how they fit into the ruins of the Forum.
Valentina is an exceptional guide to ancient Rome - she has a scholar's knowledge and she marries this expertise to wonderful story-telling and great personal professionalism and charm. We loved every minute of our walk with Valentina.

Valentina was top rate from the very first contact with her; responding promptly to our enquiries and adapting the tour for my mobility limitations. Highly recommend this as your first, most important tour of Ancient Rome, because she takes the time to set up the history, little background details and key archaeological info that will bring the Palatine Hill, as well as the Forum and other sites to life for you in such an interesting way. Could not praise her highly enough. Excellent value,
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, June!
Valentina was an outstanding guide. She is so enthusiastic about the Roman Forum and Roman history and absolutely fascinating as she described everything to us and our three teenagers. She has a wealth of knowledge and literally brought history to life for us. We were spellbound for the entire tour and thoroughly enjoyed our time with Valentina. Thank you so much for making this visit so memorable for us, we will never forget this special time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Melissa, thank you for those kind words, and thank you all! A big hug to your kids, knowing they are keeping good memories of the Forum makes me so happy! Grazie!!

Valentina was very friendly and enthusiastic! Her background in archeology and experience in digs at the ancient Roman sites provided an extra bonus to our tour! She was attentive to our curiosity and interests, as well as to our personal comfort in during our hot, sunny afternoon. I strongly recommend her as your guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for this kind comment, Peter! It was a pleasure to meet you!
Valentina enthusiasm directly takes you in the story. Very knowledgeable , witty and putting the story into context. We had a 4 hour tour through the Planetine and the fora romana and it was really too short. So much to see and to explain. I can strongly recommend this!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for this lovely morning together and your kind review! (The last phrase of your private comment is one of the funniest things I have ever read!) Thank you!
