It was so worth the money to hire a private guide to tour Ancient Rome -- Pantheon, Forum, Colosseum -- areas. We were referred by friends to Sonia Tavoletta. She brought the areas to life with background, historical context, and interesting stories. And she moved us quickly through the entrance lines and throngs of people. Ancient Rome sites are a must-see during Italian travel, and a guided tour made it all so much more meaningful. Thanks Sonia.
