Padua is an elegant and interesting city. Having visited it in the company of Rosanna was an exceptional experience. Rosanna, my guide, is very well prepared, rigorous and passionate. It was a pleasure to visit the Scrovegni Chapel and the city center with her. Visit highly recommended!

Our guide Rosanna was exceptional! Friendly, very knowledgeable and super-helpful. Over the years we travel a lot and hired many different guides. We did not request Rosanna specifically, just got lucky! if you can make a request, we strongly recommend Rosanna.

Carla was a delightful guide, knowledgeable, articulate, and responsive to our questions. We enjoyed the two and a quarter hours enormously.

Well timed tour with great information and explanations of the many sights seen and places visited…
