We visited Rome last year with our then 5 and 6 year old girls who were kinda-sorta interested in history and art....sorta. But when Valentina showed them around and was so clever in sharing the stories of Rome that this year we HAD to see her again. Thankfully (Grazie Ivana for organizing!) Valentina was able to show us a new side of Rome. The art and history of Baroque. Begging all the way to the Spanish Steps our now 6 & 7 yr olds asked 'will we see Valentina!!? Please! I hope our guide is Valentina!" When we all saw her it was a lovely gift! It felt like seeing an old friend.
The art and history of Baroque sounds intimidating (to us anyhow) but is intriguing and entertaining for both the children and adults. We felt like a favourite friend showed us their home and with such enthusiasm! Stopping for colouring and drawing what they saw, learning about the piazza statues we've walked past many times without understanding the importance or humour of the artists. it was the perfect day for us.
The treasures of Rome can only be shared with a guide like her. With such a fabulous record of success with Valentina we would recommend Rome Private Guides to anyone who wants a sweet and informative guide and great with our children. Valentina we hope to be schooled by you again next year!
Helpful Tip for parents: read a little about where you're going or doing so that if there is more you want to know or if there is a 'rumour' of something you've heard then ask all about it. It is not just about the kids. You get a lot from it too. These guide know their stuff! They will tell you what the historians know....because that is who they are. Educated, smart and kind historians!
