Very informative, interactive & fast paced tour. Ruza was very passionate about the art & architecture. We were only a group of 3 in the low season which was great. So much to see in the Villa Borghese park it feels like a very long tour so make sure you wear very comfortable shoes!

Ruza shared in a fascinating and friendly way her vast knowledge of Roman history, art and culture. It was a pleasure to see highlights of Rome which we would not have spotted on our own!
