January 5, 2022, visit to a really interesting royal palace, the place already leaves you speechless, our guide (from hidden experiences) very prepared and passionate. Unfortunately I don't remember his name (I was distracted and kidnapped by his story right away) or I would have recommended him specifically

The tour guide, Donnatella, obviously loves and is very proud of her city. She was so well-informed and answered all questions. This tour under the city is something you will not forget.

Consiglio assolutamente di fare questo tour. La nostra tour guide oltre che espertissima in materia e stata super gentle, molto divertente, disponibile e carinissima.

Excellent, the guide was awsome, knowledgable, nice, adaptable.

It was an amazing tour, with a great guide and stunning views!
