This is a must do adventure. First, our guide Inger was exceptional. I had studied much prior and Inger provided so many additional insights. She kept the group informed on what we would be experiencing and maintained a good pace for everyone. Her structure of the tour also allowed you to explore on your own and arranged clear meeting points.

EXCELLENT GUIDE, Beautiful country area 40 minutes from Rome.

We had a small group tour of 5 people, which was FABULOUS! Our tour guide, Alfredo, was so knowledgeable and patient. This is a gorgeous area to tour and a welcomed break from the busyness of Rome. We would highly recommend booking with this company, as they keep their groups small. Some other companies will book 50 people on this same tour.

Our guide was exceptionally knowledgeable about Roman and Italian Renaissance history. At the same time, my brother was not feeling well and she was very sympathetic to his situation. You can try to do these sites on your own, but be advised, you will leave with half the knowledge I had after this tour.
