I booked a tour with Valentina in late Dec 2018 for my family (us parents plus 2 sons, 11 & 13) to tour the Colosseum, Gladiator school, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. Valentina was perfect. Engaging, knowledgeable, patient, and with a passion to share her love of ancient Rome that was truly infectious. The one caveat is that our boys are huge Roman history buffs, so she was preaching to the converted, but this just made her all the more enthusiastic. Valentina is a wonderful guide and a wonderful person.
