Although a little pricey, it was money well spent. Lorella, with great competence and enthusiasm, told us many interesting anecdotes and involved us in discovering details of the paintings that we would never have seen without her. Two hours are not enough but she managed to show us the most important works and also tell us about the different painting techniques.

Our guide was excellent and extremely knowledgeable. We had a wonderful time and learned a lot during the neighborhood walk as well as the museum tour.

Really interesting and well organized visit! The guide explained the main works in a clear and interesting way, we liked it a lot!

Amazing and the guide was very helpful and informative! I learned a lot of interesting information about the paintings

Very good with our guide Camila, we walked through a good stretch of the city although the rain did bother us.
