Hello, My sister and I just returned from a 14 day trip to Italy. We were in Rome 7 days and Florence 7 days. We had 3 Avventure Bellissime tours and so here are my reviews:

Rome: 4 hour Vatican tour on Friday, May 15--reservation number 34833. We loved this guided tour. The guide, who I thinks name was Sergio, was excellent. His personality, passion and knowledge made this experience memorable and a great pleasure. Highly recommend this guided tour and this guide. Best way to visit the Vatican in my opinion.

Florence: Uffizi Museum Small Group Guided Walking Tour #39657 and Small Group "Skip the line" Florence and David Walking Tour #39657--May 21 & 22. Two great tours with same guide, Antonella. We liked being in small groups and having a great guide. Antonella was so personable, fun and knowledgable. Just loved the experience and wanted more. Highly recommend these guided tours and this guide.

Our guide, Antonella, was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and and an expert leader. One of the best tours of our trip. She was also our guide for the small group walking tour of Florence and we enjoyed every minute of that tour.
