Visit to le Louvre
Maurizio was amazing, his in depth knowledge of the arts along with his passion provided our family with a wealth of information. He engaged us all from my 10 year old son 15 year old daughter and we parents. We came away truly enriched by this personalized tour of the Louvre in particular the Italian component. He was able to communicate in English with us very well and very comprehensive. Thank you Maurizio for an unforgettable tour!
