Wonderful experience with our guide Catalina this Friday. (French tour). She was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, provided plenty of fun facts and explanations on the history of Rome and its emperors as well as everyday life in Ancient Rome. We felt as if we were visiting the sites together rather than being taught a lecture, and did not worry about the time it took to visit the sites at the pace of our discussions.
