What people are saying about Old Square

We had a charming and knowledgeable guide. There was an abundance of food. The appetizer was very generous and tasty. We were unable to eat at the last stop, polenta tasting, as we had already dined so well. We had during the day wandered around the old city and felt it was a benefit to our evening with the guide. Arrangements to meet were clear and the guide easy to find. An enjoyable evening. Thank you
