Absolutely wonderful guide, Ariana. So knowledgeable, fun and enthusiastic. She knew how to navigate us quickly through the throngs of people and yet have time to truly appreciate the wonders of Rome. The sights of all the city were truly breathtaking and memorable . My friends and I couldn't have been more pleased!!! Special thanks also to Valentino for being a wonderful and informative driver.
