Very nice walk through the city. Very big plus for us our guide was able to give us some explanations in French, originally planned in English. We really enjoyed his commentary on the city, a tour we probably wouldn't have found on our own. And to finish tasting a small coffee and an excellent meringue in an emblematic café of the city. Do not hesitate, to do!!

Our guide Marcella was a joy to be with, she clearly loves being a guide and this is reflected in her work. She was excellent in answering all our questions, her knowledge was superb. We would strongly recommend Marcella.
