A little light on the mythology for us, but overall still very informative. The adults really enjoyed this one, the kids were a little less engaged. Jose was great in encouraging the kids to sketch and was an interesting and genuinely kind person.
My son and I loved this tour. Our guide adjusted to my son's interests and clearly knew the subject very well. I learned things on that tour that I didn't know after many trips to Rome. We are still talking about it. Can't say enough wonderful things about our tour guide.
It is difficult on the neck to be gazing up at the frescos - but nothing you can do about that (don't think the guards will approve of blankets on the floor - LOL!). For me, this tour was a high light of our trip to Rome. Loved it better than the Coliseum and the all day tour of Pompeii. We loved our Mythology tour with Liz. She was easy to locate in the Piazza, she was entertaining and held my kids attention with her retelling of the story of Cupid and Psyche as she explained the frescoes in the Villa Farnisina. This particular tour coincided with nicely with our walking tour which took us through the important families of Rome during the 16th century and connected with our tour of the Mannerist park called Parco Dei Mostri in Bomarzo. The walk was not strenous, and the explanations of the villas, and families were entertaining - but the best was hearing the story of Cupid and Psyche.
