Domenico found us, and politely introduced himself, even before we expected to see him at the port of Tallinn in Estonia. His knowledge of this fascinating medieval city, and his ability to lead us to its highlights in a relaxed but efficient way, was quite simply a joy. From Peter the Great's summer palace, to the Song Fest and Olympic grounds, and on to the fascinating Old City (dating back to the 12th and 13th centuries), Domenico's friendly guidance made even a rainy day simply tons of fun!
