In Rome, Francesca gave us tours of the ancient ruins and the Colosseum. She was amazing -- so knowledgable and energetic and she made it all so interesting. Our teenage daughters were completely engrossed. Francesca was friendly and talked with us about the city as well and helped us plan our free day. She even took us to a great place for lunch between the ancient ruins and Catacombs tour. Luckily, our tours at the end of November were not crowded, but we bet Francesca would handle a large group very well. Francesca also gave us tours of the Appian Way and San Clemente, and she pointed out so much that we would have missed otherwise. Definitely take tours with Francesca! We would go anywhere with her.
