The name is not Bell Epoque. It is about Monarchy to Communism.

We had an excellent tour with Catalina. She was so enthusiastic, easy to understand and personable. A great insight into the last 150 years and clarification between the monarchy and the subsequent regime. Guru do an excellent, professional service.

Knowledgeable guide (sherbunSp?) and walked through some interesting neighbourhoods. But a big no no for me on the tour was when the guide lit a cigarette and smoked it. Totally inappropriate in my opinion.
