The visit of Villa Adriana with our guide Donatello is the best memory of what we spent in Rome. Villa d'Este is very popular on Sundays; to be savored probably preferably during the week. We were only two, so we could be 6. What a luxury !!
It is a beautiful day to do outside the tourist places of Rome. We visit outside places quieter. The gardens at the villa d'este are magnificent. Our guide had a lot of experience and we passed on them with happiness.
A personal tour was priceless.. Our driver & Donato (Donald - not trump), not to mention the weather, brought the whole day's experience to life. We are grateful for such a wonderful day. Thank you - Doug & Doris
We had a fabulous guide ( Donald) made us laugh and full of wonderful stories.
If you want to live an exceptional moment it is this one.
