You are a truly amazing teacher and here are my observations that make me say that:

  • You masterfully included diverse highlights of the city’s Baroque architecture, artists, popes, history.
  • You masterfully adapted to the diverse learning styles, levels and interests of the participants as well as to their varying mobility abilities. Pre-reading lists and materials just one example.
  • Patience of 100% like I couldn’t believe — with participants, the unexpected, the itinerary changes.
  • Humor, humor, humor.
  • Bi-lingual.
  • Master of the content and of the location — nothing simply memorized for that portion of class; you live and breathe it — make it come alive! We could all feel and be affected by that passione!

You are truly a marvelous guide and although we slept all the way home in the car, we loved walking with you and experiencing Rome through your passionate eyes.

My family and I want to thank you for making our tours in Rome so memorable. Alan and I believe that the kids will look back on this trip as one of the most memorable experiences of their teen years. Thank you for being our guide!

I really enjoyed the explanations and lectures at each site. Your knowledge and love of the subject matter came through and made the experience extremely enjoyable. I wouldn’t change a thing.

The two trips outside of Rome were wonderful and I’m so glad that you included them.

I was in Rome once as a 19 year-old for three days prior to the class. Also prior to the class, I read three of the books and all of the articles; made several learning sheet outlines for myself. As a result of the prep work I did under your reference materials as well as the week-long class, I now have the confidence & incentive to return to Rome on my own and continue exploring and studying it. So, I’d say you accomplished a lot with me!

Thank you, thank you, Giulia, and especially thank you for the terrific class. I learned a lot and enjoyed every minute. We saw things we never would have seen and having you as our guide and interpreter was wonderful.
