Skip the Line Borghese Gallery and Gardens Tour

Our tour guide was Lindy. I cannot say enough good things about her. The tour guide makes it or breaks it. Lindy is a bright, energetic, and passionate young woman who knows her stuff. History took on an entirely different perspective when she would color the historical narratives with the rest of the story or the inside scoop. ...Shane H., USA – See more reviews
