Hilary is a dynamic and wonderful person. She created rapport quickly. At Keats/Shelley house we were able to have refreshment on a back patio overlooking the famous Piazza d'Spangna (very exclusive). We never got to the Pinciana so it needs some better time control. We would have liked to walk a bit more....walk and talk you know. This tour lit excitement and a greater understanding of Keats, Shelly and Lord Byron. We will surely pursue their writings and view movies related to them.
We saw new places in Rome like the non-Cathoilc cemetary and the Keats Shelly house which we had never seen before. Hilary's entusuiasm, energy, and understanding of the subject was amazing and much appreciated.
