We just returned from two weeks in Italy, and our day in Ravenna was a highlight. Took the train from Bologna for a half day outing with Cinzia and couldn't have been happier. This isn't a standard scripted tour of "must see" locations. Cinzia has a wealth of knowledge about art, history, and religion and can engage at all levels. The stories and insight that she shared enhanced our whole trip!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jill ! Really too kind! It was such a great pleasure to meet you

Our tour with Cinzia was superlative in every way. She is extremely knowledgable, she is lively and she cares very much about what we wanted to see and do. My husband and I have art backgrounds and we hired Cinzia to help us orient the various sights historically and also to provide information about mosaic techniques and symbolism used in the artworks. She also provided a lot of historical information about Ravenna from prehistory through the present. We spent 3 hours with her and it was priceless.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much ! I loved time with you. I am very looking forward to meeting you again soon . A big hug!

We truly enjoyed our time spent with Cinzia in Ravenna, Italy. Her knowledge of the basilica mosaics was most impressive. Her command of the English language was also noteworthy. We commented several times that she would make an excellent teacher because she knew so much of the history of the churches and was able to impart that knowledge to us in an instructive yet fun manner. We highly recommend using Cinzia for the mosaic tour in Ravenna.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much !! You and Phil are so lovely !!! Hope to meet you again very soon

My friend and I did the Afternoon Half Day Guided Tour in Ravenna with Cinzia on Apr 17th - it was fabulous! Cinzia is a Ravenna native and her love and excitement for her city was so clear in her deliverance of the tour. Ravenna has 8 UNESCO sites and, although beautiful to behold, came alive with Cinzia's vast knowledge of their history and relevance. If we are ever in the Emilia-Romagna region again, we will certainly be booking another tour with Cinzia - and we highly recommend you do as well!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much ! You are so lovely !!!

Cinzia is one of my favorite guides of all time. I've been lucky enough to travel extensively in Europe a very long time, and Cinzia is among the better guides of a lifetime. She's very personable and aware of individual interests, and has great English. And she's so smart! I learned a great deal this afternoon, and wish she could show me and my family the rest of Italy. The best investment I've made yet on this trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh Pamela! Too much. A big thank!!! The pleasure was mine
Linda M.United Kingdom
We had a wonderful afternoon with Cinzia. Not only does she know so much about all the sites in Ravenna but she is such good fun. We feel we have a new friend. She pointed out all kinds of things that we would have missed if we had been just using a guide book. She recommended somewhere for us to have lunch beforehand and left us just a short way from the railway station for out return to Bologna. Well worth the cost.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Linda! You are so lovely and...Sure, I wanna be your friend!!! my regards to your husband. I am very looking forward to meeting you again. A big hug!

Cinzia is an amazing guide. She is so so knowledgeable. We couldn't have had a more perfect tour of the mosaics in Ravenna. We were so lucky that she was free to take us on a four hour tour in Bologna on Saturday and a long afternoon in Ravenna the next day. She met us at a local restaurant that she recommended to us and the lunch was great too.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a great pleasure the time with you and your family. I loved your interest and knowledge. Thanks a lot!

We had an absolutely great tour. Cinzia is very knowledgeable and charming. She loves her own town and is very good at bringing her knowledge to interested people. It was very pleasant for all of us to spend the afternoon with her discovering the beautiful sites that Ravenna has to offer. A big thank you to her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie Maria Luisa ! It was a great pleasure the time with you and your friends . Thanks so much !

Cinzia gave us a tour of Ravenna on September 11 2017. She arrived very promptly at our hotel and immediately started providing us with information about the family that owned the hotel and their history in Ravenna. During our half day tour she mixed in local history with expert descriptions of the art and architecture of the historical site that we visited. We thank you for having such a wonderful guide on your staff 10/10 rating.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks very very much!!!

Cinzia was a wonderful guide! We learned so much from her about all of the mosaics and the history of the town of Ravenna. She gave us a great tip about attending an amazing choral concert in the Basilica that we wouldn't have known about and a great restaurant recommendation. I would highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Emi, it was a great pleasure meeting you and your mother. A big hug!
