We booked the tour for a small group, but in the end we were alone with the guide. Paolo turned out to be not only a very pleasant and kind person, but also a knowledgeable and very engaged guide. We very much enjoyed this 3-hour tour, it was not only interesting but also entertaining by the many little details and anekdotes Paolo shared.
