Great tour Anne Claire! We’re so blessed and happy that you’re able to enter places to show us incredible paintings, frescoes, carvings, artifacts. It was fantastic today. You have such knowledge and enthusiasm that listening to you telling us about Perugino’s paintings is an uplifting experience. We love these tours and are very happy visiting the exteriors, but there’s no doubt, getting inside is that much better. We truly lucked out with you and Patrizia showing us your part of Italia. Thank you Anne Claire, and thank you VT.
