THANKS XIMENA

THANKS XIMENA

Hi Ximena,

Hope you are well!
It’s Amanda (and Terry, Jude and Sol) here from Sydney. We arrived back about a week ago and are settling back into routine and awfully hot humid weather! Finally had a few moments to sit down at the computer so wanted to send you a quick note to thank you very much for your amazing and personal service with the Ancient Rome and Vatican tours we attended with you earlier in January. We all agreed that you were the best guide we had the whole time we were away! Your knowledge and warmth was so appreciated. You were also so patient with the boys and read their behaviour well and tailored everything as needed. Thank you, we loved it!
We all loved the Colosseum tour too even though we didn’t get to see it with you. We were very fortunate that we had a very passionate archaeologist leading our tour who did a great job – and it was perfect having your added insight prior.
Here’s a few photos from the visits – a couple with you, and I apologise to that I don’t think I asked your permission to take these first. I love the view over the rooftops – you took us to the best location for that! It’s great that you can’t see the Piazza Venezia in view like you do from most other locations 😉
Best wishes,
Amanda

Top 10 plates you need to taste when in Rome

Top 10 plates you need to taste when in Rome

When traveling to the italian capital, one can get the chance to join some of the best Rome tours and to learn not only about arts and history, also many details about the local life.

Learning about people’s culture and traditions is a great add-on to a basic trip. It makes the difference between just visiting and deep exploring your destination.

But when it comes to Rome, you cannot expect to just visit the city. It is just as natural to also mix in with the locals and feel that Roman Holidays vibe.

Well, why don’t you just book my special Vespa tour in Rome and plan a customized itinerary through the city’s best highlights?

Not only sightseeing: we can also stop over to have some of the best street food in Rome and an amazing taste of the regional cuisine.

Here’s the top 10 plates you need to taste when in Rome.

VISIT THE PANTHEON WITH AN ARCHITECT

VISIT THE PANTHEON WITH AN ARCHITECT

Many words may be said regarding the Pantheon, but visiting this magnificent sample of Ancient Roman architecture, is something different. Especially if you do it  with an Architect. The construction system of the Pantheon has been   a mystery for   for centuries.  Mystery that only in the nineteenth century was resolved. Even though, still,  many guide books,  some of them  written by archaeologist and   in sale today  in Rome,  are giving    explanations  regarding its engineering,  that most   architects  refused.  (more…)
