We booked an hour with a travel photographer for some family photos in Rome. We met Tanya, our photographer, at the meeting spot and she was right on time. We spent just over an hour visiting a few different locations. Tanya was very knowledgeable about photography and good locations and backdrops. The hour just flew by. The photos were delivered 4 days later by a link in the email. Originally said it would be 30 photos and they delivered 39 very good photos! This was a nice way to wrap up our trip, and remember it forever.

The money pays off - especially for people with disabilities. The driver fulfills almost every wish and drives through the smallest streets directly to the most important sights, which you can name yourself. A few more insider tips on where to find the best ice cream and restaurants and perfect for an all-round impression!
