Robert was a terrific guide! He is attentive and very tuned to the interests of the group. He related the historic sites with stories, antidotes and details that made the walk even more interesting. He challenged the group with prizes for the right answer which was fun and entertaining! This is the best free walking tour we've taken in Europe and I highly recommend it!
