We did the tour with Maurizio. A truly prepared, serious and very empathetic person. Which as far as I'm concerned is a very important thing, almost fundamental for the success of things done with unknown people. CONGRATULATIONS MAURIZIO!! See you soon, Antonio & Rita.

The riddles are quite easy but its a super fun way to walk around and explore the city. It was 34° but still we were walking around the city all afternoon. You can take a break whenever you want.

It was fun and you learn about a city in an easy way and at your own pace. In between, an espresso or glass of wine speeds things up in a pleasant way 👍

Excellent experience, also thanks to Maurizio, excellent guide!!!

Fun entertainment with good information about the city
