I found it interesting to see what principles Leonardo da Vinci used in his inventions. It was not only interesting to see what principles he DID use, but even more what principles he did NOT use. I don't want to be a party spoiler, so I will not write down my conclusions :) I also found it astounding to see the unpracticality of some inventions, which should be as obvious in that time. He must have enjoyed inventing thoroughly and left practicality to a later stage. I think that is a great lesson for nowadays. Dare to dream and don't be afraid to seem silly. Well, this is my personal; opinion of course, there his no need to agree with me
We were very happy with our guide on this tour - he was very knowledgeable, answered all of our questions, kept the tour moving, kept it interesting for our 12 & 14 year old girls, and also helped entertain / interact with the 3 & 6 year old also in our tour group. He was energetic, fun, and seemed to be sure that EVERYONE got what they wanted out of the tour. He definitely knows his stuff, and I would recommend this tour to anyone - including families with teens or kids.
we've visited the site together with our 12 years old son and we were absolutely impressed by the amount of details and interested information we've got from the guides. Our son was captivated by the interesting stories told by our guides. They were very knowledgeable and well prepared to deliver not only historical accurate information but stories about the ancient world, their habits and living style. We really enjoyed out tour.
A fantastic way to explore this super interesting area and try some great tasty Roman treats in authentic cafes and bakeries. We ended up returning to the area (and one of the actual food spots on the tour) again the next day because we enjoyed it so much. Our guide was super friendly, knowledgeable and we appreciated the Italian wine tips he gave us when we saw him out later that evening!
Loved Pasquale and the tour! Pasquale was a great guide! I've visited both places 20 years ago without a tour, and it's so much more meaningful to have a knowledgeable and interesting guide. Pasquale was amazing interacting with my 8 year old son and keeping him engaged. Highly recommend!!
