There were three of us (seniors) who took this most wonderful tour of Rome. Our driver, the magical and colorful Bruno, met us at the port in Civitavecchia and drove us to Rome. He was a wonderful driver who pointed out sites along the way - peppered with his adorable and sometimes humorous anecdotes. In Rome, at the Colosseum, we met our guide, the amazing Julia. Julia has a PhD in archaeology, but she is also well-schooled in the arts. Her knowledge is unfathomable, and she passed it along with beautiful rhetoric. She recreated the life styles of Romans attending "events" at the Colosseum with such passion that one could almost imagine oneself in the audience as an ancient spectator. We had a scrumptious lunch near the Vatican Museum (a place chosen by Julia) and then toured the Museum and Sistine Chapel. Everywhere we went, Julia preceded our visits with descriptions, portraits and interpretations of what we were about to see - all of which immeasurably enhanced our visits AND our memories - now that we have returned home. Without a doubt, our experience with Kiss From Italy was the jewel of our entire trip - a Mediterranean cruise.
