The tour of the Capitoline Museums ended up being one of the highlights of our trip. Richard's knowledge and enthusiasm made the tour enjoyable and memorable for years to come. I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Rome to take the time to add this tour to the itinerary.
Cecilia was excellently prepared and guided us through a museum we knew nothing about prior. What we learned it that is an often overlooked treasure. As we learned and expressed our interests Cecilia adapted the tour so that our interests were always included as she moved us through a gallery that would have otherwise have been overwhelming. She focused us on the most important works, provided cultural and historical background and explained how the artwork we were seeing with her was connected and influenced other key masterpieces. She is wonderful.
Cecília was a wonderful guide, super knowledgeable about history and so many interesting facts about the artwork in the museum . We learnt a lot in this great tour. Thank you so much Cecilia !!
