Our tour guide, Veronica, was outstanding. She was organized, knowledgeable about the subject, and very considerate of the members of her group. We took a tour of the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. Veronica has a gift for using words to help people form visual images of the buildings, the people and the culture of ancient Rome. We took our tour on a very hot day and I appreciated her sensitivity to the needs of people of varying ages and backgrounds in our group. She is a brilliant archeaologist with a deep passion for Roman history and culture and her enthusiasm is contagious.
